Laila Ali, 34, was seen stepping out of the Verizon store in Calabasas, Calif. on Thursday (September 6) with her adorable 4-year-old boy Curtis ‘C.J.’ Conway Jr.
The gorgeous Stars Earn Stripes star – who is also mama to daughter Sydney, 1 – recently opened up about a trick she uses to get her son to eat his veggies.
“My son is a little competitive,” Laila tells PEOPLE. “[During a visit to a park a few weeks ago, C.J. challenged two 6-year-old boys to a race, but fell behind] so when we got home he was like, ‘I wanna be six, because I want to be faster!’”
“So I thought, I’m going to capitalize on this, and I said, ‘Did you eat your green beans? Because they’re going to make you faster!’ And he’s like, ‘Okay!’ And now he’s eating his vegetables. Whatever works!”
