Her sister is actress Mackenzie Vega (Mackenzie Jade Vega). Her father, Baruch Vega, is Colombian, and her mother, Gina, is American. Her mother’s maiden name, Rue, could indicate some French ancestry.

Alexa’s husband Carlos was previously credited as Carlos Pena. Alexa uses the name Alexa PenaVega professionally, as the couple have merged their surnames together. The couple has had four children.

    According to her actress sister’s Wikipedia. Their father is named Baruch Vega. ‘Baruch’ is one of the must-be-Jewish first names along with Mordechai, Pessach, Shlomo, and Yehuda.

    You might want to check up on that.
    Also, maybe add her sister to EthniCelebs as well, after you find out more details.
