In a video, Tyra answered a question from a mother who wanted to boost her daughter's confidence. "How do you convince your daughter that she's beautiful?" the mother asked. "She is 22 and thinks I say it because I'm her mom."

Responding with a perfect piece of advice, Tyra said: "So your daughter needs to know that she's beautiful, not just because momma's saying it, right?

"Compliment her on specific things, 'Oh my god baby, your hair looks so good today, your skin is bananas right now, your eyes are sparkling and it just makes me dream.'
