Luis D. Ortiz Is Leaving His Family for 5 Months to Film a New Project

The MDLNY alum praises Leela's "badass mom" as he heads out to work on a secret gig.

Luis Ortiz Leaves Family To Work

And he's off. Luis D. Ortiz has confirmed that he is "filming a new project." And while he kept the details top secret about what that project is, he did confirm that the new gig means, "I will be away from my family for the next five months. We are filming a new project that will take me away for that long."

The Million Dollar Listing New York agent posted a lengthy update about his life and what's next for him in his career to Instagram over the weekend, which included an incredible shout-out to daughter Leela's "badass mom," Nikita.

"Today was a very promising and sad day for me. Promising because I go back to work to do what I love while continuing to provide for my family - grateful at the same time, especially during the uncertain times we are living through right now. And sad because I will be away from my family for the next five months," he posted on July 26.

He continued, "We are filming a new project that will take me away for that long. Leaving Nikita and Leela this morning from our quarantine house in Vermont made me really sad. I cried like a little bitch on my way out. I knew that the next time I hug Leela she will no longer be as small as she is today. People tell me that five months will fly but that’s not how I see it. To me I will miss her by-the-minute growth in front of my eyes every single day. But then I smile and know that everything will be alright and that Leela is super happy and safe with her mother [Nikita] who is a badass mom and loves her to death! I miss them so much!"

Luis and Nikita welcomed Leela in March 2019. Luis appeared on Season 8 of MDLNY before he and his family confirmed they were moving to Puerto Rico in the season finale.
