Cooper Zee loves his "mamas" and trains

06/28/2007 at 09:49 AM ET

Trilinguist Cooper Dominic Zee, son of Ming-Na and her husband Eric Michael Zee, is learning English, Chinese and Spanish, but there’s only one word the 20-month-old is concerned with, according to mom.

He calls all his caretakers Mama – even his father!

Cooper, pictured here in a photo from November, with Ming-Na and sister, Michaela, 6, is also a low-maintenance baby, who is perfectly content spending his day with his toys and Michaela.

[His day] is filled with Thomas the Tank Engine, eating and more cars and trains. Cooper follows her around and imitates everything she does.

Those two kids are absolutely adorable! Although given how beautiful their mother is, it is not a surprise …

Beautiful boy. He reminds me of baby Maddox!

My nephew did that the longest time as well, calling everyone “Mom” when he first started talking, until we started telling him no and what our names were. But Cooper’s better than me being trilingual, but that’ll benefit him in the long run.

He and his sister are adorable. I love his spiky hair. And Michaela looks so much like her mother. 🙂
