Career
  • Despite being the niece of a popular celebrity, Lili Estefan had to struggle hard to build a name for herself in show business. The pretty and confident young lady got lucky in 1986 when she was offered a chance by Univision to participate as a model in ‘Sábado Gigante’, a highly popular television show hosted by the Chilean TV star Mario Kreutzberger under the stage name of Don Francisco. She brought a cheery presence and youthful beauty to the show which won the hearts of not just the audience, but the show host himself! People quickly took to the slim and tall model and were captivated by her green eyes and sparkling smile.
  • After having become the darling of the masses, Lili Estefan wasted no time in exploring other opportunities in modeling and television in addition to ‘Sábado Gigante’. She co-hosted the show for 12 long years before bidding adieu to the program which helped launch her career. Her streak of success continued when she was hired to co-host a celebrity-gossip show, ‘El gordo y la flaca’ for the same network, Univision, in 1998. Along with Raúl De Molina, she has been sharing celebrity gossip and showcasing interviews with singers, actors, and other celebrities since then to entertain audiences. The hugely popular multiple award-winning show has not only taken her career to greater heights, but has also proven to be a very enjoyable experience for her. Along with being a television host, she also presents special events such as beauty pageants and the annual Calle Ocho music festival held in Miami, Florida.

With the help of her uncle and aunt who familiarized her with the glam world, Lili too developed an interest in the show business.
