Christina’s mother has said:

Fausto [Christina’s father] and I both have brown hair. And as for why Christina’s came out blonde, well, the Aguilera side of the family says that they believe she got it from Fausto’s deceased brother Walter, who was blonde haired with blue eyes (see guys!! And he was 100% Latino!!). It’s not as uncommon as people seem to want make it out to be.

Christina’s paternal grandfather was Fausto Aguilera Calderón (the son of José Antonio Aguilera Masías and Zoila Calderón). Fausto was born in Quito, Distrito Metropolitano de Quito, Pichincha, Ecuador.

Christina’s paternal grandmother was Edna María Monge Verduga (the daughter of César Monge Serrano and María Lucrecia Verduga Zambrano). Edna was born in Manabi, Ecuador.

Christina’s maternal grandfather was Lowell Marley Fidler (the son of Marlie Alfred Fidler and Pluma Violet Osburn). Lowell was born in West Virginia. Marlie was the son of Minor Lough Fidler and Ivy Luvela/V. Wyant/Wiant. Pluma was the daughter of Emory Porter Osburn and Emma Louise Radcliff.

It explores her father’s side too

neiltennant December 25, 2017 at 10:35 am

i do live in europe and i can tell you

AGUILERA looks like the average GERMAN or POLISH girl

nothing exotic

if she were here everybody would talk to her on german language

When I looked into Christina’s paternal ancestry, here are some additional ancestries so far: Ecuadorian (Spanish [Andalusian, Castilian, Extremaduran, Leonese], Galician, Sephardi Jewish, remote Indigenous [Quechua])

madman December 1, 2017 at 5:04 am

Can we please stop listing Spanish and Italian regions in ethnicities? No one cares about them, and if they do, they can check the genealogy themselves.

ashash December 1, 2017 at 10:01 am

People seem to care if someone is Sicilian.

madman December 1, 2017 at 6:21 pm

Sicilian is different. My exceptions are: Sicilian, Sardinian, Galician, Catalan, and Corsican.

follers December 1, 2017 at 1:32 pm

I think they’re hilarious.

andrew December 1, 2017 at 4:32 pm

I believe at least 30% of Italian-Americans have ancestry from Sicily. I would be curious about Jackie Sandler, all her 4 grandparents’ surnames appears to be common in Sicily. She surely has a lot of Sicilian ancestry.

follers December 1, 2017 at 2:12 pm

Who was Aguilera’s Sephardi Jewish ancestor?

neiltennant December 25, 2017 at 2:32 pm

YES that is very interesting

who is the Sephardi ancestor ?

luckystar March 20, 2017 at 3:53 am

she is mostly white but doesnt look fully white, she had clearly mongoloid admix due to native american ancestry on dad’s side
here she looks clearly indigenous admix

and never looked someone spanish plus british combo

neiltennant December 25, 2017 at 10:36 am

you are a joke

of course she does look 100 percent white

she has pale skin, blue eyes and is the prototype of a white girl

xteena February 8, 2017 at 8:57 pm

Xtina looks white

Ardor February 8, 2017 at 6:26 pm

I could’ve sworn that she claimed Lebanese ancestry on one side of her family.

Anyway, she looks European to me.

neiltennant January 4, 2018 at 2:48 pm

that would explain why she had gain so much weight

Libanese kitchen is very addictive and they fry everything

Daron November 20, 2016 at 8:34 pm

She must have Spaniard or other European ancestry on her father’s side to explain her complete Anglo features. Ecuador was a Spanish Conley so they might have been interracial marries between Whites and Native Eudoreans on her Dads side. There are some Spaniards with blue eyes and blond hair tough.

neiltennant December 25, 2017 at 10:37 am

correct

she looks like the average white girl

luckystar June 16, 2016 at 8:25 am

Her father looks castizo with mostly spanish ancestors

you are a stupid idiot

Fausto Aguilera and Edna Maria Monge Verduga -> Fausto Aguilera Calderón (the son of José Antonio Aguilera Masías and Zoila Calderón) and Edna María Monge Verduga (the daughter of César Monge Serrano and María Lucrecia Verduga Zambrano). César was the son of Bruno Fidel Francisco Monge Carrasco and Josefina Serrano Valdivieso.

REMARK: I think César and Lucrecia either divorced or did not marry according to César’s genealogy: http://gw.geneanet.org/ferneche?lang=en&p=cesar&n=monge&oc=1

Her mother also wrote in another post: “‘Fausto (Christina’s father) and I both have brown hair. And as for why Christina’s came out blonde, well, the Aguilera side of the family says that they believe she got it from Fausto’s deceased brother Walter, who was blonde haired with blue eyes (see guys!!

Her mother answering a fan about her German heritage, from about 2001-2002:
“I am German from my father’s side. My mom is predominantly Irish / Welsh and some Dutch, and my dad’s side of the family is almost all German. His grandpa (my great grandpa) couldn’t speak any English at all.”

jasper2015 October 19, 2015 at 7:27 am

she’s definitely white to me ….

andrew October 13, 2015 at 10:39 am

Her uncle is Johann Aguilera, and that Wagner in Christina’s father full name: German ancestry?

Devotion October 13, 2015 at 6:08 am

Meh she’s basically half spanish and english…..very typical to look like that when you’re southern european mixed with northern

hotline-bling November 3, 2015 at 3:57 pm

You mean that she’s half Latina and European.

AW March 18, 2017 at 10:59 pm

Pretty normal too when you consider the fact that there are also some blonde and blue-eyed Spaniards and Italians…

neiltennant December 25, 2017 at 2:33 pm

no she does look German or Polish

believe me I’m from Germany and in Germany she would be average

labird August 18, 2015 at 9:33 am

She has Dutch ancestry as well.
