Adam made an emotional speech as he thanks his father Ramon and talks of being a new dad. "Being a new dad, and finally understanding the love that a parent has for their child in a way that you never can until you experience that for yourself. I appreciate you more than ever, pop. Thanks for your pride and everything you've showed me throughout my life. Your pride in being Latino, and all the things you've done for people along the way. As a result of that pride, and as a result of just having a good heart. Thank you" Watch his incredible speech here.
