Armando and Kenneth are preparing to start their new life but before that, there is a lot that Armando has to do. Coming from a traditional Mexican family, Armando had a hard time coming out to his family. He revealed they had spoken on this topic three years ago but after his ex-wife died, that topic was buried and never spoken of. 

However, with Kenneth coming to Mexico, he knew it was time to talk to them about it once again. Armando sat down with his father, Armando Senior, and mother, Virginia, to talk about what had happened. Armando broke down crying when he told his parents that he felt like he was not a good enough son to them while adding that he felt like they didn't love him ever since he came out as gay. He admitted that he had spent his whole life hiding who he was and getting married might have confused everyone. Armando also recalled that there had been many nights where he cried alone in his room because he had to hide who he was. He admitted that he chose to do this because of his parents as he did not want them to hear what the society had to say. 

Armando's parents were shocked to hear this and his father stated that he should have come and spoken to them about what he was going through. Meanwhile, his mother broke down crying when she found out that Armando felt like they didn't love him anymore. She made it clear that she would always love him and accepted him for who he was. Armando also broke the news about him being with Kenneth and how they plan on moving forward with their lives. While his mother accepted them, his father admitted that he would need some time. Fans became emotional when they saw the scene and stated that he deserves all the happiness. 

"Rooting for Armando and Kenny this season. Armando has been through so much. He deserves to be happy," read one comment. "I like Armando and Kenny. I hope they are happy and healthy," said another. "Armando’s parents are everything. His mom loves him to pieces & just wants him to be happy. It can’t be easy with his news & he’s moving out of their house," read another comment.
