The Mirandas are from Cebu.

The son of Martin Miranda and Angelique Lhuillier, Daniel grew up alongside his brother Enrique in Cebu. Daniel's mother, Angelique, is an entrepreneur while his father, Martin, has been a karter, motocross rider, and drag-racer.

"Daniel and his brother Enrique used to ride with me with their pocket bikes, but when I got really busy, I couldn't join and teach them anymore. And since it's a dangerous sport, I decided to have them do karting instead, but it was Daniel, who picked it up at a competitive level, while his brother loves it just as a hobby," Martin Miranda told the Manila Standard in an interview.

Daniel is a descendant of the Lhuillier family.

Through Angelique's parents, Daniel is a Lhuillier. He counts Philippe Lhuillier and wife Edna Diago Lhuillier as his grandparents. Philippe is a diplomat, businessman, and philanthropist who is best known for being the Philippine ambassador to Spain, as well as the former ambassador to Italy and chairman of Cebuana Lhuillier Pawnshopthe Philippines' largest pawnshop chain.
