And she'll go, 'Who are you?' She apologises (and says), 'I'm just so sorry, Christopher, I don't mean to get silent on the phone, I'm so proud of you, I just can't believe you came out of me. It's just crazy.'" Glee star Chris Colfer's parents have different reactions when he tells them of his achievements.
