Despite his breakup from his kid’s biological mother, Claudia Valdez, American comedian Gabriel Iglesias talks about his adoptive son Frankie Iglesias in his comedy sketches. The bond between the father and son is admirable.
Iglesias to Concentrate on Himself and Frankie
With his wit and humor, the comedian has made audiences laugh; yet, in 2017, Iglesias found himself in a difficult circumstance.
Because he couldn’t achieve the perfect work-life balance, the stress of managing his personal and professional lives took its toll on him. In a June 2020 interview with the People, he remarked, “Everything fell apart.”
The actor went into survival mode, stopping booze for more than two years and taking time off from his professional obligations to “emotionally heal.”
I went into survival mode and began to drink; however, I needed time to contemplate and couldn’t drink and repair myself. Not only that, but the performer claimed to Billboard in 2018 that he had to leave the stage after breaking down on stage when speaking about his son. I became upset on stage talking about the reality that my son is no longer a kid, he told the site. He’s now [Frankie] an adult, a man.
And then it hit me, and I got choked up, walked off the stage, and just buckled. In the same interview, Iglesias stated that money and achievement were irrelevant if one did not devote time to his or her family. The comedian even apologized to his son Frankie for staying gone for so long after realizing his error.
‘Oh my God, what am I doing with myself?’ I exclaimed as I collapsed. Yes, there are automobiles and money, but am I still content? I have a child at home who has everything, but he hasn’t had as much time with me as he could have.

According to Nicki Swift magazine, Frankie eventually forgave his father. Following that, the comedian took a break from his professional obligations to dwell on his family. Today that he is a single father, he says, “Home is different for me now.” I’m able to concentrate on myself, my profession, my children, and my dogs.

Iglesias Raised His Son With His Ex-Girlfriend
In summer 2020, the actor and his long-term girlfriend, Claudia Valdez, divorced due to his struggles with work-life balance.
Although the exact reason for their breakup is unknown, there have been rumors that it was due to Iglesias’ drunkenness and emotional problems.
Valdez had been in a 12-year relationship with the comedian. The couple was first seen together in public in 2008 at an event. Since they were together, they have resided in California and raised Frankie [Valdez’s kid from a previous relationship].
Despite the fact that the couple had no biological children, Iglesias always treated Frankie as his own and granted him the opportunity to use his surname.
