5 things you need to know about Daniel Miranda

Even before the news broke about Sofia Andres and Daniel Miranda being parents to their little daughter, we've already gotten a glimpse of Daniel through Sofia's social media updates.

And now that all eyes are on the 24-year-old hottie, here are some trivia about Daniel that you probably didn't know about:

1. Daniel is from Cebu

A member of the Miranda family, Daniel grew up in Cebu with his brother Enrique. His father Martin Miranda is a karter, motocross rider, and drag-racer, while his mother Angelique Lhuillier-Miranda is an entrepreneur.


2. Daniel is a descendant of the Lhuillier family

With his mom being a Lhuillier, that makes Daniel a descendant of the distinguished Lhuillier family from Cebu. His grandparents were Philippe Lhuillier and Edna Diago Lhuillier, the owners of the country's largest pawnshop chain, Cebuana Lhuillier Pawnshop.


3. Daniel's mother Angelique co-owns Casa De Memoria and Palacio de Memoria

The famous auction house and art center in Parañaque was co-owned by Daniel's mom Angelique, together with her sister Camillie Lhuillier. Palacio De Memoria even made headlines for its gorgeous restoration work in 2019.

4. Daniel has been fond of racing since he was a kid

In an interview with When In Manila in 2017 (HYPERLINK: https://www.wheninmanila.com/born-to-race-cebuano-racer-daniel-miranda-shares-how-it-is-to-live-life-in-the-fast-lane/), Daniel revealed that he has always loved cars and racing as a kid. He then asked his parents if he could try kart racing, and since then, he has been addicted to it.

Ever since he kickstarted his career as a racecar driver, Daniel has already brought home several awards from car racing, including the Philippine Karter of the Year in 2013, Vios Cup overall champion in 2017, and the TCR Asian Drivers' Champion in 2019.
