Her father is an American, from Pueblo, Colorado, and was in the U.S. Navy. He is said to be of Irish, Scottish, German, French, and Cherokee Native American ancestry. It is not clear if this Cherokee ancestry has been verified/documented.
Her mother is Japanese.
Her parents met during the U.S. occupation of Japan after World War II. Ann was raised in Sasebo, Nagasaki and Ashland, Oregon. She has said, “my face announces to the world that I come from a long line of very open-minded lovers.”
Ann has traveled to Japan to find her mother’s ancestry. Her journey can be seen here.
