Harry Connick Jr.’s daughter Georgia is turning 15-years-old and is ready to roam the road with a driver’s license. But she won’t have a hard time learning because Harry was teaching her to drive at age 6!
“Georgia, she’s 15, she’s just about to start drivers ed,” he said, referring to the required classes for beginning drivers. “But you know it’s cool…Like, I remember when she was six I took her to the park and not only did I let her steer, but I let her drive. I shouldn’t even be saying this, but there was nobody there, it was like a Sunday morning.”
“I said, ‘Listen, there’s two pedals down there, the one on the right (is the gas), don’t push that one. Push the one on the left (the brake) if you’re going to push any pedal at all,'” Harry recalls.
“I said, ‘The car’s going to move (in neutral) on its own. As soon as you let your foot off the brake, it’s going to go. I’m going to stand outside the car and jog next to you and tell you what to do.’ And she was fine…The window was down, I had access (in case something went wrong), it was all good,” he says.
