She is too average looking to be a Victoria’s Secret model. She has a basic girl-next-door appearance.

It’s not Irish. Almost everybody I can find with this surname is of Ashkenazi Jewish descent (and her great-grandfather Edward Bubley was born in Dvinsk, Latvia).

However, one of Erin’s maternal great-grandfathers, Jack Mann, was actually born in Ireland (to Russian Jewish parents).
