Lele Pons is getting candid about a moment in her childhood she will never forget.

The 23-year-old YouTube star talks about her father, Luis, being gay in episode 2 of her new YouTube documentary series, The Secret Life of Lele Pons, which dropped Tuesday. Pons says she had known about her father's sexuality since she was a little girl, but when she was 10 years old, she actually walked in on him with another man.

"When I really, really found out he was gay, I came to his room and I saw him actually, like, sleeping with a man," she recalls. "And I was, like, 10 years old, and that for me was, like, 'Oh, my God, I can't believe it. Like, I saw, my dad.' And that was very traumatizing, because I didn't have to see that so vividly."

Still, she notes that now the two are "so close" -- and that he's also walked in on some things he shouldn't have.

"I've seen everything, he's seen everything," she shares. "That happened to me too -- I think he came in one time, to me. So, we owe each other, OK? We're even."

Pons later recalls openly telling everyone at her Catholic school that her father was gay, which she says was due to her OCD.

"Impulsivity is a huge part of OCD," she explains. "And when I found out that my dad was gay, I said it during a presentation in my class. And everybody was, like, 'This has nothing to do with what's going on.' And the teacher was, like -- especially, the teacher was very Catholic -- she was, like, 'Come here.'"

Pons, however, was always accepting of her dad's sexuality.
