Family and Culture Are Essential to Luis Guzmán

Angelita Galarza-Guzman and Luis Guzman married in 1985; the couple has five children. Luis adopted four children but has not elaborated more on the situation. He says that his favorite Latino tradition that he is passing down to his children is music:

"Once in a while [I'm] listening to my kid's iPods, and I hear like a Latin song on it, and it's like wow!"

Luis also said in a 2015 interview that Latinos no longer have to wait for Hollywood to tell their stories; they can do it "on their own." The Guzmán patriarch pushed this ethos in his own home.

Cemí Briggs-Guzmán, born November 17, is an actor, artist, and producer. He is a frequent collaborator of his dad, Luis, under the umbrella of their production house, Dark Rabbit Productions.

Cemí has been a spokesperson for NIMBY since July 2012 and briefly volunteered at The Bowery Mission in 2015. The latter is an organization focused on poverty alleviation in New York City.

The artist is often seen obscuring his eyes with the brim of his hat like a cowboy, as explained by his Twitter bio, which states that he is not a public figure. His dad shared a mixed-media original painting of his in January 2019 of a multi-colored gorilla.

The publicity-shy artist teased that he is painting again in an August 2022 tweet featuring a page from his notebook with "I will always follow the rabbit into the darkness" scribbled in his distinct black lettering.

In November 2023, Luis wished his son Cemí a happy birthday in a heartwarming post shared on his Instagram page. The veteran actor posted a photo of Cemí outdoors enjoying a glass of wine. Alongside the photo, he poured his heart out to his son, extending a sweet message on celebrating his special day. He wrote, "Wishing this Young Man a very Happy Birthday."

While Cemí has a career in an industry where fans often keep up-to-date with artists over social media, last year, he declared his decision to take some time off the platform. Sharing the news on X, the multifaceted artist posted footage that captured him walking down the streets and captioned, "Perhaps my last post. Thinking I am going to stay out here for a bit ."
