“It’s not easy,” the New Jersey native, 31, exclusively told Us WeeklyWednesday, April 13th, while promoting TLC’s show. “We try to make it a game for him. He will do whatever his father does. If he sees his father do something, he’ll do it.”

“I’ve been really pushing [him to be bilingual],” Weinberg told Use. “I don’t want him to go back to Ethiopia and then not speak the language. So that’s, like, the most exciting thing for me is when he says new words.”

The Ethiopia native agreed, noting that his favorite part of parenting is “teaching” the toddler new things.

Oh, my God. I would be exhausted. It could be. He has that energy, never-ending energy.”

When Shibre called “six [or] seven” children “no problem” and said he “love[d] playing with kids,” Weinberg replied, “But maybe you need to carry them.”
