"That's something we want to educate her on as long as she's still in our household and even beyond that. Willa is one of the smartest that I've ever met. She is so smart."
"Even when she comes from school ... the main thing [her teachers are] saying is how intuitive she is and how much she recognizes at a young age."
The singer also mentioned,
"Willa Gray acts like such a mom now. Ada James is a little young to kind of take on that role, but Willa... I mean, she'll feed her. She'll comfort her. She'll hold her in her lap. She can hold her standing up now. So, it's been really cool to just watch them become amazing big sisters to Lennon."
