His grandfather was a farmer, and just like many children his age, he followed suit and would take care of animals. Out of the many animals on the farm, he was most natural with the dogs. That earned him a moniker el Perrero which means the dog herder.

He was born together with Erick Millan, Monica Millan, Nora Millan and Mireya Millan. Later, the family left Culiacán, Sinaloa for Mazatlán. Cesar didn’t leave Mexico until he was 21.
