Nelly Furtado Has Hands Full Teaching Toddler About Culture

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Nelly Furtado is seeing the world through different eyes these days – her daughter’s.

The “Promiscuous” singer takes her 3 year-old daughter, Nevis, on tour with her and says they have “real bonding time” exploring Europe, Puerto Rico and New Zealand together.

But she says the two really connect at her summer home in the Portuguese Azores, where she shows Nevis “the magical place” that she comes from.

Says Furtado: “I definitely want to expose her to more as she gets older – she’s Portuguese, Indian and Filipino, so she has a lot of cultures to digest.”

And a lot of languages. Furtado says she speaks both Portuguese and Spanish to Nevis and hopes her daughter will be able to pick up the languages as she grows.

To help her daughter learn the lingo, Furtado says her next album will only feature lyrics in Portuguese and Spanish – something she has had her heart set on for years.
