Solo Knows Mandarin

Pike told Jimmy Kimmel about the time she and her two sons Solo and Atom accidentally ran into a Bachelorette party during an outing.
“Last summer, I took [my children] on what I have heard is very sort of wholesome and traditional Czech activity to do with kids, which is to go river rafting,”
the Fracture actress said.
She then added,
“And there’s a lovely town called Cesky Krumlov quite near Prague and we went. And it’s this beautiful stretch of rivers — and there were rapids and weirs — and I took my two boys out on this inflatable raft.”
The Bafta nominee admitted to underestimating the fact that it was also a very popular Czech pastime for a bachelor or bachelorette party.
Pike then revealed how she and her sons as they were traveling along came across a group of women in bikinis, with a very large inflatable man with a huge erection trailing behind them in the boat. After that, the Oscar-nominated actress said her kids were fascinated.
Apparently, Pike’s sons Solo and Atom found the men and women at the bachelorette party rather intriguing, and later the boys would impersonate them even at home, reported their mother to Kimmel.
“I mean, my kids have never stopped sort of acting drunk ever since. They’re emulating it. They thought this is clearly what adults do. This is our future,”
said the Wadham college graduate.
Solo And His Brother Did Toothpaste Review
During the same interview with Kimmel, 53, the I Care A Lot star also spoke about a project Solo and Atom had worked on — reviewing various kinds of toothpaste.
The boys apparently did the reviews of various flavored toothpaste which the host, Kimmel later featured on his show.
How Rich Is Solo Uniacke Father; What Is His Net Worth?
While Solo’s mother is certainly a millionaire with an estimated net worth of over $6million, the run-down of Uniacke’s wealth is strongly a huge puzzlement.

Reports with a thin margin of factualness nonetheless suggest the father of six is also a millionaire or at least a six-figure man.
