We did not see that coming. Luis D. Ortiz dropped a major bit of personal news during Million Dollar Listing New York's Thursday (August 15) episode during which he confirmed that he was expecting a baby daughter, making him a first-time dad(!!).
Yes, you read that right: Luis confirmed he's expecting a child during this week's MDLNY. However, he didn't reveal any other details about the news, including the details on who he is starting a family with, but still he did confirm that he's ready to kick off this next chapter.
"It's crazy how much things have transpired since the time I left New York. It's very beautiful to see it," he said in interview, while reflecting on meeting his longtime business associate Ronita's daughter for the first time. "I've been through a lot these past two years, a lot of ups, a lot of downs. But everyday gets better, and seeing this only makes me happy. It puts no pressure on me 'cause I have my own time. And I can't have all these beautiful things right now if there's a big part of me that's broke and I need to fix that first before I go on a have a family and have kids. Wow, that hit a f---ing nerve."
He then revealed his happy news, fighting back tears: "I hope that's not true — and that I have to fix myself before I have a kid — because I am having a kid. Yeah, seriously. I'm having a kid. I'm having a baby girl."
It's been an emotional ride for Luis the last couple years. He stepped away from real estate, NYC, and MDLNY after Season 5. He then went on a lengthy break from it all to return for Season 8 of MLDNY, and earlier this season he confirmed his return back to New York City, as well as his plans to work in the real estate game again.
