Catherine Zeta-Jones Just Shared a Video with Her Niece (Who Has Some Incredible Language Skills)

Catherine Zeta-Jones is a well-known actress, who has received acclaim for her various roles. But she isn't the only one in the family with talent.

It turns out that her niece, Ava, is quite the expert when it comes to mastering languages. In a new video that Zeta-Jones shared on Instagram, the actress is seen sitting with Ava, who repeats everything that Zeta-Jones says...but in Welsh.

Zeta-Jones, who is of Welsh descent and also speaks the language, is very proud of Ava in the video. The caption read, “Welsh in Spain. Ava Zeta is in the house. Hours of fun. Love you Ava.”

In the clip, Zeta-Jones says, “Hello everybody. I am here with my beautiful niece, Ava Zeta, and I thought I'd send you a few messages, only that I'm gonna do it in English and Ava's gonna do it in Welsh.” The Chicago actress proceeds to say different statements, like “I hope you had a nice day today” and “We went swimming,” which Ava repeats in the Celtic language.

Followers were enamored with the video, like one user who said, “Y’all are the sweetest omg.” Another person wrote, “So nice to hear the Welsh language.” The upload has already garnered over 200k likes.

While it seems the family was visiting Zeta-Jones's home in Spain, the actress has maintained close roots to her Welsh heritage. According to Architectural Digest, the actress and her husband, Michael Douglas, have a home in Swansea, Wales, which is Zeta-Jones's birthplace. Meanwhile, the actress recently let her Welsh accent come through in an Instagram video, which excited some of her fans.

We'll be looking forward to more language lessons with Ava.
