A few weeks before her daughter Summer Roses 2nd birthday (Oct. 3!) April Lee Hernandez took Summer to Wave Hill Gardens in Riverdale, New York for a relaxing day at the park.
The Puerto Rican actress (Dexter, Freedom Writers) who shared the photo with us exclusively also tells EXCLUSIVLee.com about the best advice her mother ever gave her. The biggest lesson my mother taught me that I will pass on to my daughter is the power of my voice, the famous Latina mom said. My mother would always tell me: April, your voice matters and no one has the right to take it away from you. Anything is possible if you work hard and always keep God first.
Adds Hernandez: I plan to pass this lesson on to my daughter Summer Rose. As a matter of fact, Ive started already.
Sounds like great advice to us!
