They became engaged in September, 2005 and married in a private civil ceremony on December 9, 2005, at the Manhattan Marriage Bureau. The couple have three daughters: Isabella (b. 2006), Gia Zavala (b. 2008) and Stella Zavala (b. 2010). He also has a step-daughter, Alexia Barroso (b. 1999), from Luciana's previous marriage.
