She is with out a question one of the most beautiful celebrities. Sort of looks like Mindy Sterling in a way! Chloe’s grandparent’s surnames were Moretz, Morris, Duke, and Duggar. According to @Bearboy “Moretz” is a German and Dutch surname, “Morris” is usually English and Scottish but could be a Jewish name, “Duke” is English and Irish, and lastly “Duggar” is French and German. With that being said, @Bearboy thinks Chloe could have remote Dutch ancestry and of course like every person is very mixed if you go back far enough. But to answer @Bearboy’s friend @Follers question this is a very remote Judge Judy ancestor that isn’t Jewish. Duke Qing of Qi 齊頃公 Lü Wuye 呂無野
