Taye Diggs is an accomplished actor and the author of children’s book Chocolate Me . While recognized for excellent articulation, Taye has a confession to make: he engages in baby talk.

The actor revealed the confession on his personal blog. Taye writes, “I don’t know about y’all who are parents, but with my son, Walker, I’ve somehow started adopting a new “dad”  vocabulary…Some words I’ve used…“pop pop” — pacifier; “banky” — blanket; “baba” — bottle.”

For those who don’t know, baby talk is the process of simplifying words so that infants and toddlers can understand. Although the idea is to help children learn the English language, many adults end up teaching themselves a new communication method. Parents are especially prone to baby talk, and Taye Diggs is no exception.

Taye recently appeared on the Ellen Show.  Check him out now!
