Luis is married to Sofía Balbi, with whom he has three children.
Luis’s paternal grandfather was named Atasildo Suárez.
Luis’s paternal grandmother was named Lila Píriz.

I saw somewhere he also has croatian ancestry
I doubt very much he has african ancestry. Uruguayans barely had any african immigrants. He probably has native american indian heritage, like most of south americans. Chileans, argentinians and uruguayans are mix of european and native people, not africans. Africans had more presence in Brazil, Ecuador and Colombia only.
He was into a controversy with Patrice Evra back then, so he tried to get away with claiming “I’m part black myself, I’m not racist..”

his father is african-uruguayan??!??!! he doesn’t even look black! he looks like a mestizo!!! nigga please!!
yeah..bbc is a reliable source even though he looks mestizo. Probably the grandad had African ancestry making him just 1/8 or less black
Many Mediterranean men have a similar looks to his, so his looks alone do not necessarily hint he might be a mestizo or have native ancestry. Also, many predominantly white mulattoes have a similar looks as well. In any case, this guy is very hot. I find him better looking than Ronaldo.
When you are 1/4 black you don’t look black ! Michelle Rodriguez doesn’t look black and she is 25% black, Nahlà, Halle berry’s daughter is 1/4 black and she is blond !
you don’t have to look black to be part black. look at Sofia Richie. at first glance you most likely would assume she’s just a regular white girl but she’s in fact 50% black.
Lionel Richie is not African and has also more European ancestry than average African-American, that’s why his daughter with a white woman turned out to have white skin.
