When Ellen met the mother son duo she said: "I had to meet you because I thought it was the most adorable thing ever. But it was not adorable, don't argue with your mother."
Questioning Mateo's behavior Ellen asked Linda, "Did he just come out with this kind of personality? Just always had something to say?"
"He's definitely always had something to say, if it's not arguing about shoes, it's arguing about cupcakes," replied Linda.
Ellen further asked as to why Mateo does not call Linda mommy. To which Linda said: "Linda comes from debating, for like a cupcake, I'm usually mommy ... When he's serious and he wants to get his point across, then we become Linda or Kenneth (Mateo's father)."
Mateo even refers to her mother has "honey" and "babe" and according to Linda he learnt this terminology from his father Kenneth.
