“I told him to slow down,” he told Wallace. “You don’t sit her down and say boom. Please give it a minute to process.”

Estefan shared more details about her decision to go public with what happened.

“In the Latino community, a lot of these issues aren’t touched on, they’re taboo. People see, but they don’t want to talk about it, they don’t want to see it,” Estefan said. There are I want them to realize that we are all families trying to get through difficult times in life.”

Since then, Estefan has received “countless” letters from supporters, who said the show helped them talk to their parents.

“Life is complicated. Life is hard,” Estefan said. “We wanted to share those things with people, so they would understand that these are conversations we need to have. The response has been fantastic.”

Estefan praised his daughter, who is a singer, and admired her determination. Careers are tough for young musicians right now, but Emily is determined, even appearing on Estefan’s new album, “Estefan Family Christmas.”
