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 grandmother was Edna María Monge Verduga (the daughter of César Monge Serrano and María Lucrecia Verduga Zambrano). Edna was born in Manabi, Ecuador. César was the son of Bruno Fidel Francisco Monge Carrasco and Josefina Serrano Valdivieso.

Christina’s maternal grandmother was Delcie Mable/Mabel Dunfee (the daughter of Primrose Calvin Dunfee and Bertha Mae Allen). Primrose was the son of Oliver D. Dunfee and Elizabeth Josephine Holland. Bertha was the daughter of Joseph Earl Allen and Mary Elizabeth Brownlee.

Xtina looks white

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

Anyway, she looks European to me.

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.

Her father looks castizo with mostly spanish ancestors

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.”

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…
