Gloria Estefan’s Daughter Is A Chip Off The Old Block

HuffPo has a video series called Talk to Me, where people interview their (usually famous) parents. The most recent participants in the series are 59-year-old Cuban singer Gloria Estefan and her 22-year-old daughter Emily, who is a songwriter, drummer and singer.

The point of the series is to encourage intergenerational conversations about the big, important life questions. Past participants have included Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington and her daughter Christina, Lionel and Nicole Richie and even Oprah with graduates from The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls. Qué wonderful, no?

Do yourself a favor: watch, listen and learn from the interview porque as her own daughter points out, Glora Estefan is a “badass tough woman.” She has led an incredible life filled with triumphs, but most certainly not without difficulties or even tragedy. Sheesh, in 1990, the tour bus she was on was involved in an accident that ended up breaking her vertebrae. Her prognosis for a full recovery was slim to none, but she gave her recovery effort all the ganas she could give and she made what many called a “miraculous” recovery. Qué milagro, ni qué nada; it was all badassery on her part.

Keep an eye out for a sweet mom moment in the interview when Emily asks her mom if she still has goals and dreams and Gloria turns it around so she can not-so-humble-brag about her daughter. Gloria says,  “What’s more exciting for me is to see you… about to embark on this journey that I know since you were a kid that you’d get up every morning and you’d go to all three instruments, you know the drums, the piano and the guitar before you went to school. You kept your GPA 4.0, thank you very much.” Awww!

The most motivating part of the interview is when Gloria gives “growing humans” (that’s you) the following advice: “I don’t think you ever stop growing. Find what you love, what you love to do, because if you work at what you love to do, then it doesn’t feel like work.” Yass! #Goals, right there.

Press play, then let us know what you think.

If you ever watched “The Bernie Mac Show” then you must remember all of crazy and hilarious scenes between Bernie and his nephews. All you need to do is watch one episode or scene, and Bernie will remind you so much of your parents that you’ll be having flashbacks to your childhood. Even if you didn’t watch the show, these Bernie Mac moments will for sure remind you of your family on so many levels.?

In one episode, Vanessa gets stressed AF when her tío Bernie tries to teach her how to drive…

The constant nagging and yelling from your parents literally DRIVES YOU CRAZY. ?

… which makes her never want to drive again.?

The more your parents yell at you, the more you reconsider sticking to the bus or just riding a bike instead of driving. ?

Bernie is always worried about Jordan’s masculinity.

Similar to how your dads and uncles are always pressing the boys in the family about “acting like MEN.” Sigh.

When it comes to Vanessa and boys, Bernie is super overprotective.

For the daughters in the family, bringing a boy over to the house is always a struggle.

So, of course, Bernie has his rules about Vanessa having a boyfriend.

Seemed like you couldn’t have a boyfriend till you were 30 years old. ?

If Vanessa ever does have a boy over, Bernie sends Jordan to “keep them company.”

Your younger siblings were basically you parents’ secret little spies.

Yet, when it comes to Jordan, Bernie isn’t overprotective at all.

As a boy, you could always bring a girl home without a problem — and your dad will most likely praise you for it.

Whenever the kids are grounded, Bernie doesn’t take it easy on them.

Which is why you would dread getting in trouble for something.?

Bernie never believes the kids when they say they’re “sick.”


You had to be pretty much dying in order for your parents to really believe you were sick.

It didn’t matter if the kids said they were sick, Bernie still expected them to get up out of bed.

Would your parents let you stay in bed all day. YEAH RIGHT. If you were sick, then you were just being lazy.

If any of the kids ever decided to talk back to Bernie…

And you know what that hand gesture meant.?

No matter how often Bernie stressed out about the kids…

And no matter how often your parents get fed up about you misbehaving…

At the end of the day, he loves Bryana, Jordan and Vanessa very much, and will always be there to protect them.

They will do anything for you. ?

Bernie is always there for his family- open to have a heart to heart with them when things get rough.

Family is everything, through thick and thin. ?

Rest In Peace to one of the Kings Of Comedy ❤️

Last month, in remembrance of Bernie Mac, the mayor of Chicago announced November 14th to be Bernie Mac Day, a day to remind everyone of the importance of “finding the humor no matter what.”
