Matt Gaetz Son Nestor Galban
The Republican congressman tweeted a photo of himself and Galban, 19, together, adding, “For all those wondering, this is my son Nestor. We share no blood but he is my life. He came from Cuba (legally, of course) six years ago and lives with me in Florida. I am so proud of him and raising him has been the best, most rewarding thing I’ve done in my life.”
Galban responded to the tweet saying, “I love you, keep up the good work, we all support you and love you!” Gaetz said he had been “triggered” into revealing Galban as his son because “a fellow congressman diminished the contributions of Republicans because we don’t raise non-white kids.” The day before Gaetz’s announcement, he had been involved in an exchange with Representative Cedric Richmond of Louisiana during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on police reform.\
