Salma Hayek says becoming a mother taught her to love life again.
The 'Frida' actress - who has a seven-month-old daughter Valentina Paloma with her fiance, French businessman Francois-Henri Pinault - revealed having a baby is the greatest thing she has ever done.
She said: "When she was born the amount of love that started pouring out of me was completely pure. Anything anyone ever did to me was erased by this energy.
"I relearned how to love everything around me, too. My baby is the best thing that has happened to me in my life. It's the most amazing thing."
The 41-year-old star also revealed Valentina is starting to develop a French accent.
Salma added to USA Today magazine: "You learn so much, just by listening to her. She makes a strange noise like a purr, or a rolled r. It's the French in her. It's hilarious!"
