An international superstar might be moving to Lima Heights Adjacent.

Grammy winner Gloria Estefan is in negotiations to guest-star on an upcoming January episode of Glee, EW reports. She'd play the mother of Santana (Naya Rivera), who recently came out of the closet. Santana claimed that her parents -- unlike the disapproving abuela we've already met -- were supportive of her.

Is Ricky Martin heading to Glee?

Estefan's involvement would be the second piece of good news for Latin music fans. On Tuesday, it was reported that Ricky Martin is in talks to play McKinley High's Spanish teacher, a post that both Mr. Schue (Matthew Morrison) and Holly Holiday (Gwyneth Paltrow) have filled.

Estefan's TV credits include guest-mentoring on American Idol and the 1998 special, Elmopalooza!

Would Estafan make a good mother to Santana? Which of her songs would you like to see performed?
