The 54-year-old “Queen of Latin Pop” is reportedly in talks to appear on Fox’s hit musical dramedy as Santana’s mother, according to Entertainment Weekly.

In this week’s episode, Santana (Naya Rivera) came out to her abuela, played by Ivonne Coll, who did not approve of her lesbian lifestyle and quickly shunned her granddaughter.

Santana has told her fellow McKinley High classmates that she’d come out to her parents and that they offered their support. Now, it looks like we’ll get to see Estefan and Rivera share some serious mother-daughter screen time, including some possible Estefan music and other bilingual tunes.

Sources tell EW, that the entire Glee cast is “really, really big fans of [Estefan]” and love her music.

Estefan would reportedly appear in the same January episode as Ricky Martin, who is reportedly in talks to appear as McKinley High’s new Spanish teacher.
