Hayek`s baby doesn`t believe in Santa

Los Angeles: Actress Salma Hayek has revealed that her two-and-a-half-year-old daughter refuses to believe in Santa Claus.

The `Grown Ups` star, who has a daughter named Valentina, said, "No matter what I say to her, she just doesn`t buy it, and she`s 2½. I refuse to give it up. I say, `There is a Santa Claus,` and she says, `Okay, Mommy. In pretend world, right?` She really doesn’t believe. There`s nothing I can say to make her believe in Santa Claus."

Hayek says she`s concerned as she wants her daughter to believe in such characters.

"I`m hoping she`ll believe in fairies because I want her to have some kind of make-believe characters in her life. I don`t know why I have a child like that," she said.

"I`m hopeful that she`s too young to believe in Santa Claus and, in a year or so, she`ll believe in it, especially because it`s always a great tool for blackmail when you say, `If you don`t do this, Santa Claus isn`t going to bring you anything.` But, right now she doesn`t believe in it," she added.
