VIDEO: See Lady Gaga's Mom!


Cynthia Germanotta, mother to the unpredictable pop star, makes a rare TV appearance.

What does Lady Gaga's mom look like? Fans got a glimpse on The View Monday.

Gaga (real name: Stefani Germanotta) was on the ABC chatfast to discuss her new album Born This Way, which drops Tuesday.

At one point, the camera panned to her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, who was sitting in the audience (she has never appeared on camera before).

Sporting blonde hair, she smiled for the cameras.

"Mommy, was she born this way?" Barbara Walters asked her.

"Yes," Cynthia replied, prompting Gaga (wearing 18-inch heels, no less) to reply, "Poor mom!"
