Fantastic Four star Ioan Gruffudd is teaching his young daughter Welsh to ensure the tot is aware of her roots while the family lives in Los Angeles.
The actor, who was born in the small village of Llwydcoed in Wales, has resided in California since his big screen career took off in the early 2000s.
He wed British actress Alice Evans in 2007, and they welcomed little Ella two years later (09) - and Gruffudd is determined to make sure the youngster stays true to her background.
He tells Britain's Daily Express, "I speak Welsh to Ella full-time and we ask the nanny to speak with her in Spanish. Eventually Ella will be trilingual."
