National Geographic Channel’s Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan took a break from the canine world Thursday, March 12, to take the oath to officially become a U.S. citizen.
Millan, star of the Emmy-nominated series Dog Whisperer and best-selling author, was born in Mexico. He passed his citizenship test earlier this year, and attended a swearing-in ceremony with dozens of others in Montebello, Calif., north of Los Angeles.
His wife Ilusion and two sons, Andre and Calvin, were in attendance at the ceremony (they are already U.S. citizens).
“This is the ultimate culmination of living the American dream,” Millan said in a statement.
Millan is working on his fourth book, to be released this fall, and starts filming this week for the sixth season of Dog Whisperer.
