    So she basically Spanish with 1/4 French. I kinda knew her grandma wasn’t full French judging by her full name…

    • anen87 says:

      Actually her grandma may not be half French at all since the surname Schüll is German. So she could be half german, half spanish born in France. So Belinda could be Spanish with 1/4 German instead.
