The 35-year-old Ph.D. student mother of three posted a video on Saturday of her eight-month-old son Rise Messiah sitting across from her on a grassy field with a basketball between them.In the video, Bell asks Rise to wave, which he does. “Hi Rise, good job,” the mom laughs.
“Rise, can you put your arms up? Let me see, arms up!” she coaches.Rise follows along, raising his arms until his mom instructs him to put them back down. “What about clap, can you clap?” she asks, to which Rise starts hitting the ground before bringing his hands together to clap. “On his way!! He started reading sight words already too!!!! Can’t wait to show you all.🤍✨,” Bell wrote. The video showed the results from a skill assessment taken by Golden, with Bell explaining, “Golden got tested for his abilities, and he’s at grade level four. Although he’s not even 6, he’s in second grade. He’s scoring in everything at a fourth-grade level.” “This is amazing. He blew me away. He inspires me.”
