The native of Guaynabo, Puerto Rico was raised alongside his twin brother, Daniel with whom he shares a soothing relation since his childhood days.

Luis considers his brother his best friend. Every year the twin brothers celebrate their birthday on the same date, as they cut the biggest cake of all and raise champagne for the toast.
Besides, enjoying the company of his brother, Luis loves visiting his family in Puerto Rico three times every year.
Talking about Luis's education, the 32-year-old actor joined New York Fim Academy and graduated from there.
Is Luis Gay?
From the very beginning, Luis was open to supporting gay rights.
For instance, when the court legalized gay marriage in 2015, he openly expressed his support via Facebook.
Looking back, it seems the very supporting act might have added up to the speculation of him being gay.
The confusion regarding him being gay or not rose, even more, when he went on a date with a girlfriend and wrote that he did not like the girl blaming the girl's narrow thoughts regarding the gay people.
Well, the contradicting scenario brought confusions. However, the rumors cleared up when Luis stated his thoughts on married life.
He admitted that he wanted his future wife to have the qualities of the American actress Perry Reeves.
The statement, somehow, clarified his interest in girls and more like confirmed that he is not gay.
But the thing is, even today many people make differences on the basis of their sexuality and especially gays and lesbians are taken very hesitantly.
Being in this so-called modern society can be tough sometimes as people always have a second opinion about you.
Welcomes Baby Girl!
Luis saw the series of highs and lows during the past few years of his life.
After stepping away from New York City and bidding goodbye to the fifth season of Million Dollar Listing New York, Luis did some soul searching in Paris and all over the globe.
As of 2019, he yet again arrived in the current season of the show. And, not just that, this time he dropped quite some bombshells leaving his audiences and co-stars completely dumbfounded.
Mostly, with the news of his expecting a baby girl. Amidst the end of 15 August episode, teary-eyed and genuinely happy, he disclosed the big happening of his life. His exact words being-
Obviously, not planned, and, you know, there's a lot more to the story, and I wish I could tell it. I'm genuinely happy thinking about it, but I just want to make sure I do things right. I have no idea how this is gonna go, but I will love her no matter what. Like, true love. I don't even know what that feels like or is, but I have the feeling that I'm about to find out.
With all the excitements around, Luis eventually welcomed his baby girl in March this year. The arrival of the baby girl, Leela, must have brought lady luck in his family.
