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.

When she turns she shows off her side profile and lets out her stomach. And tbh we love the natural curves!

In an interview with E! she explained that speaking openly about the procedures was important for her she does not “like lying about things.”
