We're very excited," he continued before Kelly interjected, "Your mom is so happy."

Rudy fully gushes about Camila in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, where he says their on-screen chemistry in Música crossed over to real life.

"She's Brazilian American, she's beautiful, she's immensely talented, and she really connected and personalized Isabella, her character, which was amazing because as we were shooting, our characters were having conversations that her and I were having conversations about in real life, so the lines would often blur between Rudy and Isabella and Rudy and Camila because of how personalized it was. Rudy and Isabella's connection translated to real life," he said.
