In June 2009, Gloria and Emilio bought a minority ownership stake in the Miami Dolphins. That same year it was announced that J.Lo and Marc would be part-owners of the team, alongside the Estefans.
The 36-year-old Colombiana just so happens to be Emilio's protege. During an interview on Oprah's Next Chapter earlier this year, Gloria revealed that she "fought hard" for Shakira and worked very closely with her before Shakira crossed over to mainstream music, which even included translating songs for the "Addicted to You" singer.
This 19-year-old Venezuelan American revealed to us during an interview that not only was she discovered by Emilio, she's also helped him compose music. "They are inspirational and down to earth," she told us about the Estefans. "I'm blessed to be around people who are so genuine, determined, and professional because it sets an example for the rest of us."
The TV personality, who hosted Sabado Gigante and El Gordo y La Flaca for several years, is the Estefans' niece on Emilio's side.
Gloria may not be Naya's real-life mamá, but the two did share a mother-daughter relationship when Gloria guest starred on Glee, playing the part of Santana's mother.
