Neston has said:

My parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents were born in Cuba, but my roots are Spanish. On my father’s side, Carbonell (Catalonia) y Cortina (Basque Country), and on my mother’s side, Ramírez de Arellano (Navarre) y Cardenas (Jaén). I was born in New York and I am as proud of my American nationality as of my Cuban nationality and Spanish origins. I’ve been to Spain many times and I’ve enjoyed visiting Madrid and Andalusia.
