Monkey see, monkey do! While attending the Stella McCartney for GapKids launch party, Constance Zimmer revealed that her 22-month-old daughter Colette Zoe has become quite the little talkative parrot, quick to repeat whatever she manages to hear.

“I would say her talking has escalated ten fold,” she tells Celebrity Baby Blog.

Noting that it is “kind of nice to see yourself repeated in your child,” the actress admits Colette has become an expert on imitating her mama — and has even managed to perfect her manner of speaking!

“Anything I say she repeats and then she comes up with her own ideas and concepts. A lot of times I say, ‘Ummm’ and now when I ask her something, I notice that she’ll stop and think and she’ll say, ‘Ummm,'” Constance shares.

Colette is Constance’s first child with Russ Lamoureux.
