After months of speculation, Gloria Estefan is coming to Fox's Glee.

The singer, whose casting as outspoken Cheerio Santana's mother, was announced in November, had been expected to guest star in a January episode, but now the Grammy winner will appear in this month's Season 3 finale.

During November's "I Kissed a Girl" episode of Glee, Santana came out to her unseen parents, telling her classmates that they were "OK with" her sexual orientation. Her grandmother, however, didn't share the same feeling and disowned the cheerleader who was pushed out of the "flannel closet."
