Coco’s parents are Rocky Ann Juanita Rocha and Trevor Charles Haines.

Coco can attribute both her dancing, which she practiced for twelve years, and her looks to her Irish ancestry. “My mom’s half Irish and my dad’s half Irish. We don’t know much about my mom’s side but my dad’s mom came from Belfast and married my grandfather, who was from Wales.” Her grandparents later moved their family to Canada.

Totally. It literally means “stone” in Portuguese. It is also a Sephardic Jew surname.
