She isn’t fully Caucasian but there aren’t reliable sources to prove that.

“She isn’t fully Caucasian but there aren’t reliable sources to prove that.”

She looks mixed to me, but as you said I have no proof. She reminds me of Eva Mendes a little bit.

English people have been mixed over the years with alot of different things its an international place now and there are tons of interracial couples. England is full of Indians, Africans and Middle Easterners. To say you are English is not fully accurate anymore at all. You have to actually say white European.
