Well my Mum is Brazilian but her family originated from Portugal and I think there’s some Italian in there as well. My dad is American but French on his grandmother’s side and there might be some Native American in there as well – so it’s really mixed up but the main part is European!

Her maternal grandmother is Deborah, possibly Gould.

stlucas January 25, 2017 at 10:50 am

Camilla’s mother is actually named Deborah Cristina, although I really don’t believe Gould is her maiden name. It isn’t Portuguese, nor Italian, but certainly British.

Her instagram account:

bablah January 25, 2017 at 11:44 am

She stated on her facebook that her grandmother is called Deborah.

About Gould, yeah, it doesn’t sound Portuguese, that’s why I said possibly.

Definitely see some Italian in her

Is it certain that Camilla doesn’t have any Jewish heritage?

This twitter post has me wondering:

follers November 22, 2015 at 1:41 pm

Well, she was evidently raised Catholic. Her father isn’t Jewish. I don’t know her mother’s genealogy, except for what Camilla said, “her family originated from Portugal and I think there’s some Italian in there as well”.

passingtime85 November 23, 2015 at 1:50 am

All I know about her mom, is her name, Deborah Cristina Gould. Gould sometimes can be a name Jews use to Anglicize names like Gold/stein/berg and the like, but that middle name makes me pretty dubious.

stlucas August 28, 2015 at 9:06 pm

She has those soft Portuguese features just like Nelly Furtado. Very pretty.

sparkles180 August 11, 2015 at 7:51 pm

She’s super pretty and I love her name. I thought she was italian or croatian.

M June 4, 2015 at 7:05 pm

Exotic looking. She’s pretty.

EuMesmo1986 October 13, 2014 at 6:04 am

Latinos are not a race, people. There are white Latinos, black Latinos, Native American Latinos, Mixed race Latinos, East Asian Latinos and Middle Eastern Latinos. When will Americans understand that? This girls is not passing as white, she IS white. A person of wholly European descent is not less white just because he or she is born in a Latin American country. Their DNA don’t change because of that.

eyaeyayooooo June 13, 2014 at 10:06 am

It’s amazing how beautiful she is. She can pass for any ethnicity.

person July 20, 2014 at 7:01 pm

she can only pass for white.

“Pass for white”? Brazilian is a nationality, not a race. There are millions of whites in Brazil. She is not passing as white, she is white.

thomas1987 October 16, 2014 at 4:06 am

She can only pass for white. Because she’s fully white and looks it. There are only 4 races in the human race(Caucasian, Asian, black, and native American) out of all of those she only looks white, particularly southern European.

cwm85 July 28, 2015 at 3:20 pm

Black is not a race. It’s a color… you Mean African?

Princess June 12, 2014 at 8:28 pm

She looks manly. She would be prettier if she waxed those eyebrows.

ihatemostpeople February 21, 2014 at 7:11 pm

She looks like she could have some Asian ancestry. There are a lot of Brazilians with Asian ancestry, so it’s possible.

andrew February 22, 2014 at 5:51 am

you see Asian everywhere, she’s not Asian

Check7t February 23, 2014 at 1:12 am

Ain’t nothing Asian about her, stop.

WTF June 3, 2014 at 4:01 pm

p.s. check7t, you’re a fuckin hypocrite. i see you bullshitting as well. saying people look like a race when they don’t. so stfu. you do the same exact thing as that person

WTF June 3, 2014 at 4:00 pm

lmfao asian?!? this trick looks 100% italian

shobohunter August 15, 2014 at 7:02 pm

types= trick
that chick. .not trick

EuMesmo1986 October 13, 2014 at 6:01 am

She looks much more Portuguese than Italian, in my opinion. Anyway, Southern Europeans look alike.

Rammer February 23, 2015 at 10:37 am

If “Southern Europeans look alike,” would you confuse Sophia Loren with, say, Manolo Garcia?

Humanid January 11, 2014 at 2:08 am

She is White and mostly Portuguese looking.

Why can’t this site stop using nationalities as an ethnicity?

German-Brazilian sounds bullshit,
native-Brazilian makes sense, not Italian-Brazilian.

notional October 28, 2013 at 1:39 pm

Brazilian isn’t an ethnicity her mother is just Portuguese and Italian

fbwfeiwb November 29, 2013 at 12:01 am

Most white Brazilians actually have at least some distant Native American or black ancestry.

J.J. October 23, 2013 at 7:31 am

correction; her eyes are forest green (green+brown) and her hair is dark brown (brunette) I think it should be listed

J.J. October 27, 2013 at 7:32 pm

correction; her eyes are just green not forest green

theropod June 24, 2013 at 2:28 am

Since when is “Brazilian” an ethnicity? So is American, Canadian, Argentinian, Australian, Chilean, etc (new world countries) ethncities too?

I’m guessing they mean Portuguese.

ann129 June 22, 2013 at 10:57 pm


Well my Mum is Brazilian but her family originated from
Portugal and I think there’s some Italian in there as well. My dad is American but French on his grandmother’s side and there might be some Native American in there as well – so it’s really mixed up but the main part is European!

Anita March 10, 2013 at 5:04 pm

She is Sephardi Jewish and Portuguese.

Affellay January 5, 2013 at 11:06 am

She should have Amerindian n Black African descent like majority of the “white” Brazilians? huh? I’ve heard tht there was a survey in which they found out most of the Brazilians r not pure Black, White or Indian they r all mixed

JSKaoru December 31, 2012 at 9:10 pm

I know a girl who’s of Spanish and Portuguese descent. She’s blonde and she told me that the entire side of her family that’s Portuguese is blonde. I’ve seen many people of pure Portuguese ancestry with green eyes or red hair or light brown hair. Some people here are ridiculous!
I’m of pure Portuguese ancestry and I’m pale as sh*t!

JSKaoru December 31, 2012 at 9:11 pm

“Pale as sh*t” sounds wrong… pale as milk, perhaps, hahahaha!

Nutella83 February 2, 2013 at 10:56 pm

People have a hard time grasping the concept that people in Southern Europe are also Europeans and are white.

andrew March 10, 2013 at 6:36 pm

yeah a huge part of Portuguese (expecially from the north) ppl don’t look Mediterreanean (you can say the same for Spaniards and Italians) because of the Celtic background. And Portuguese immigrants to Brazil came mostly from the North of the country

Jessica-Tere October 24, 2012 at 12:40 pm

She looks damn near perfect.

GeorgeJeanPierre July 6, 2012 at 7:36 pm

Shes American and Brazilian CULTURE wise, ethnicity wise i would think shes Portuguese English and Probably Native South American

Anita March 10, 2013 at 5:05 pm

She is not Native South American she is Jewish mostly but her mother is white. Her last name is Routh.

andrew March 10, 2013 at 6:38 pm

that’s a stage name as “Angelina Jolie”. Curiously both “belle” and “jolie” mean beautiful,pretty etc.. in English
