Monkey see, baby do!
During a visit to Jungle Island
animal park in Miami on Monday, Bethenny Frankel
and her 19-month-old daughter Bryn got up close and personal with a capuchin monkey named Smokey.
The 10-month-old monkey also knows a thing or two about having his life filmed for TV. Since appearing on news broadcasts and on reality show Miami Ink
, Smokey has become a local celebrity.
Mother and daughter loved interacting with Smokey, and Bryn even showed off her ever-growing vocabulary during the morning visit. As they left their furry new friend, she said, "Bye, monkey. Bye, monkey."
