Gloria Estefan Glee

Although Santana’s grandma disowned her this week for coming out as a lesbian, maybe her mom will feel differently

We’ve never met Santana’s mom before on Glee, but now with her major storyline about coming out as a lesbian, Naya Rivera‘s character is getting some love — including a maternal influence played by the lovely Gloria Estefan.

The 54-year-old Cuban-born singer hinted at the big news on Twitter Nov. 30, writing, “Hey M’Tweets! Did anyone see Glee last night? Santana could really use a sympathetic mommy right about now, don’t you think?? Lol!”

Entertainment Weekly also reported Gloria will be in an episode with Ricky Martin in January, which will feature some of her music.

Gloria’s hard work is definitely paying off — she just signed with Wilhelmina International, Inc., one of the biggest talent agencies in the world!

“Gloria Estefan is one of the most recognized international talents in the world today. She is a timeless beauty and an icon,” said Sean Patterson, President of Wilhelmina Models. “Her current album is modern and sexy; and we see many opportunities for her in fashion and beauty.”

We’re so happy for Gloria and we want’t know: Do YOU think Gloria is a good fit as Santana’s mom? We sure hope she’s nicer than her grandma!
