Most celebrity moms would probably shy away from talking publicly about their affinity for weed…but not Gael Garcia Bernal's wife, Dolores Fonzi.

"I've been smoking for 20 years," the 35-year-old said, according to El Mundo. "At the time, I used it to open up and as this has already happened, now I use it to relax. It's like a glass of wine that we taste."  And that's not all she admitted to!

WATCH: Dad hilariously learns you just can't reason with babies!

As every parent knows, there's just no reasoning when it comes to dealing with babies. You can't talk them out of crying or waking up in the middle of the night, no matter how hard you might try. Well, it seems one dad recently learnt that important lesson the hard (and hilarious) way.

As can be seen in the super funny clip below, a father gathers laundry from a drying rack that's set up on an outdoor balcony while his toddler stares at him from inside the apartment. As the dad talks to him through the glass doors, the baby (who can't even speak real words yet) babbles back as if trying to convince his dad to let him out on the balcony too.

He loves it so much that he has a Rainbow Flash backpack lunchbox, but his school, a part of Buncombe County Schools, is banning him from carrying it because they say it is a "trigger for bullying." Give me a break!
