He definitely has Native admixture — almost looks pseudo-Polynesian partially.

Irigoyen is a spanish surname, very common in the area around the basque country, so he’s probably of basque descendent besides other nationalities.

Cuban is a nationality. It’s doesn’t really specify one’s ethnicity as there are Cubans of European, African, and of course, Native descent.

I guess it’s hard to find out exactly, sometimes as Latin America is know to be very mixed in some places, but the Native in him is evident. If I had to guess, I’d say he was a mix of Native (Taino) and European.

Cameron Diaz has a cuban father, but she looks european, cuz her Father, like most rich people of
Middle America is of european (spain) descent and
isn’t mixed with coloured people.
Cuban is nationalita, but not an ethnicy
