Even though Valentina has told her mom she doesn’t believe in Santa, Salma made sure she captured the special moment on her camera phone.
Salma Hayek is a proud mama! The actress, 44, snapped some photos of her 3-year-old daughter, Valentina, as she visited Santa and sat on his lap in Paris! We’re sure the tiny tot let Mr. Claus know exactly what she wants under the tree this year, and we hope Salma was listening!
Although Valentina looks like she is happy to see Santa, Salma says that her little girl doesn’t believe in him! “She will not believe in Santa Claus. No matter what I say to her she just doesn’t buy it,” Salma explains. “I refuse to give it up. ‘There is a Santa Claus.’ ‘OK, mommy, in pretend world, right?’ ‘No, for real.’ ‘For real, right.’ She really doesn’t believe. I don’t know why I have a child like that. I believed in Santa Claus and I was really upset when somebody told me the truth. But I’m hopeful that she’s too young to believe in Santa Claus and in a year or so she’ll believe in it, especially because it’s always a great tool for blackmail when you say, ‘If you don’t do this, Santa Claus is not going to bring you anything.’ But she doesn’t believe in it.”
Valentina’s only 3 and she has already given up hope that the big guy will slide down the chimney this December 25? Hopefully that will all change!
