by ethnic on December 27, 2007

Birth Name: Eva Jacqueline Longoria

Place of Birth: Corpus Christi, Nueces, Texas, U.S.

Date of Birth: March 15, 1975

Ethnicity: Mexican [Spanish, Indigenous/Mayan, small amount of African]

Eva Longoria is an American actress, director, producer, businessperson, and activist. She was the star of the series Desperate Housewives.

Her parents, Ella Eva (Mireles) and Enrique Longoria, Jr., are of Mexican descent, with ancestry that traces back to Southern Mexico. Many of her family lines have lived in Texas for generations. Eva is married to businessperson Jose Antonio Bastón, with whom she has a son. She has also been credited as Eva Longoria Parker, the surname of a former husband, Tony Parker.

A DNA test whose results were displayed on the show Faces of America (2010) stated that Eva’s genetic ancestry is:

*70% European
*27% Asian/Indigenous
*3% African

Eva’s ancestry can be traced back to Lorenzo Suarez De Longoria, who was born, c. 1592, in Asturias, Spain. She also has many other traceable Spanish-born ancestors from the same period.

Eva’s paternal grandfather was Enrique Longoria, Sr. (the son of Mateo Villareal Longoria and Maria Sabina/Savina Zarate Solis). Enrique was born in Texas. Mateo was the son of Ponciano Noel Longoria Villarreal and Maria Rita Ramirez Villarreal. Eva’s great-grandmother Maria Sabina was the daughter of Narciso Longoria Solis and Agueda Zarate.

Eva’s paternal grandmother is Micaela De Luna Perez (the daughter of Viviano De Luna and Juana Perez Bazan). Micaela was born in Texas. Viviano was the son of Encarnacion Concepcion De Luna and Maria Rafaela Martinez. Juana was the daughter of Ponciano Alvarez Perez and Maria Antonia Gonzalez Bazan.

Eva’s maternal grandfather was Juan Mireles (the son of Gabriel Mireles and Luisa Barriente). Juan was born in Texas. Luisa was born in Mexico.

Eva’s maternal grandmother was Eva Salinas (the daughter of Cecilio Salinas and Eulalia Perez). Eva’s grandmother Eva was born in Texas, to Mexican parents. Cecilio was the son of Cecilio Salinas and Teodora Barrera.

Eva is a seventh cousin, once removed, of musicians A.B. Quintanilla, Suzette Quintanilla, and Selena Quintanilla, and a seventh cousin of their father, Abraham Quintanilla, Jr. Their common ancestors were Juan Diego Longoria García and María Clara Chapa Benavides.

she is not a spaniard, she is “part” spaniard, she has 30 % non White.And spaniards dont have NATIVE AMERICAN or BLACK dna.Spaniards are a mix of Celtic, west european, british, italian, irish sometimes scandinavian, and dont have north african or subsaharian african, no mix with this people and there were expeled, its a mith and not true.

23andMe usually tends to increase the White percentage of latin americans, especially mexicans.

I dont understand why her father and many mexicans of Texas claims that they are spaniards when are very mixed, like her father, who looks more native and nothing european,shame.

Hill October 1, 2017 at 12:17 pm

Spaniards often have 1-5% black ancestry sorry. Not just Anthony Padilla.

blue October 7, 2017 at 10:58 pm

Thats not true, spaniards dna results don´t have african dna, i see scientifics research and individual results and don´t have african dna, this is a myth from people who hate spain like mexicans and south americans or english , the africans invasors were expelled of iberian península and repopulated with German people.

Spaniards dna is the same as the rest of european, but the main percentage is Iberian, and also the rest of european have iberian dna, you can ask ancestry, and they dont have african dna.

Eva has african dna because there was a lot of africans in mexico.

luckystar November 20, 2017 at 4:59 pm

Youre wrong. You see this Portuguese results and he scores African and North African
https://youtu.be/CGD5oRs6zSQ
And hes not even an atypical case. But yes, in Evas case is due to the fact shes Mexican because 3% black is too much. Most Europeans with black blood scores less than 0.9%.

Based on DNA results, the avg one does

cwm85 November 10, 2015 at 1:40 pm

She is mexican American with higher European mixture. That’s the majority of mexico. Linda Chavez also mexican American was higher. 80 precent European. She thought she was more native than she is… probably like a lot of Mexicans.

luckystar November 22, 2015 at 1:59 pm

Minority* The majority of mexico looks indigenous.

luckystar November 9, 2015 at 4:42 am

OK, I’m from Uruguay and all my great grandparents came from Italy I’ve done DNA testing and have small Arab genes and consequently, 0.3% sub Saharan appeared, so I’m afro Uruguayan?

cwm85 November 5, 2015 at 8:48 pm

Less than 1 percent of the population of Mexico have African ancestry. And estimate 200,000 slaves were brought over. And about 450,000 people have African ancestry today. Mostly in the range of 1 to 8 percent admixture. Eva is actually one of rare mexican Americans with African ancestry. Albeit 3 percent. Wish is less than a great-great grandparent and not visible to see in terms of phenotype. Her percentage of European ancestry is a bit higher than average Mexican mestiza. The average range is like 55-65 European. She is 70 percent European.

Actually that wiki page said Less than 1 percent of the population ,450,000 with mostly or visibly significant black ancestry. In other word those who actually look black. The government doesn’t ask about peoples their African Ancestry. They ignore it completely. My information come from DNA tests done all over mexico. This is where it states the avg mestizo is 3-8% African. With places like Veracruz and Nacimiento, Coahuila being higher. I have put the Dna results on here before

Those people looked a mixture of native, european and African. The first pic the woman look mostly Spanish with native. The last two looked more admixed with African and native. I don’t deny the African mixture of mexicans all I said was compared to European mixture and native american mixture it is a lot lower. DNA test show the dominate mixture is European and native. The majority are mestizos meaning native and European mixed, with African dna a distant third. Those are the facts. Mexico is not the Virgin Islands or Haiti where the majority are African descendant people. I’m sure you can agree with that right Fuzzybear?

xoxo October 18, 2015 at 5:29 am

“African Mexican”?? Never heard of that shit in my life. There aren’t any “African” Mexicans, they’re MESTIZO.

fuzzybear44 October 18, 2015 at 10:39 am

@xoxo

MESTIZO simply meant mixed-blood. It was later on that people started to put stipulations on what it meant. Even in the 1700’s in the U.S slave laws, MESTIZO meant a black indian mix.Another reason why Mexico stopped using mestizo in the late 1800’s, is because everyone was calling themselves mestizo. Black Mexicans or Afro-Mestizos would be more plentiful if it hadn’t been the usual deal, where they were the bulk of army, and fought most of the battles, because they had the most to lose. Also overtime mixing has minimize certain visual traits. on top of that, you’ve had new black people coming into the place, for the past hundred yrs.

marjanel November 6, 2015 at 8:04 am

Sorry but there are mexicana who are 100 % blacks.

abbracci October 10, 2015 at 8:14 pm

Mexicans are mixed with Black? I thought they were just Spanish and Native American.

fuzzybear44 October 10, 2015 at 10:25 pm

Nope, black was always a potential part of the mixture. The avg mestizo is said to be on the avg 3-8% black( with some being higher while others show no recent ancestry). Also as for the Spanish, you can add other European heritages also(French, Irish, German etc.). Possible Asian heritage as well.

xoxo October 18, 2015 at 5:31 am

They’re not mixed with black. The only Latinos that are mixed with black are Dominicans, Puerto Ricans, and SOME Panamanians.

There were some Africans slaves in mexico but far less than the carribbean. Mexico is a mestizo nation. Native and European mix with majority being more European because of the slaughter.

fuzzybear44 November 3, 2015 at 10:18 pm

Well I do agree that there were more in the Caribbean. However by the 1800’s,at least 10% of the Mexican population was visibly black. That’s not what I would call some African slaves. Plus, you had other blacks coming in from the north(African Americans both free and slaves, Creoles, Black Seminoles).Actually, there would be more blacks, but they were the bulk of army(fighting the battles). A mestizo nation, well they have worked very hard to promote that, while ignoring the other possible ancestries(African and Asian). Which are two of the ancestries Jose Vasconcelos wanted in the cosmic race or La Raza. I wouldn’t used the word slaughter, more like tidal wave of Europeans coming in, and going after the local population.

cwm85 November 4, 2015 at 11:13 am

The Europeans slaughtered the natives fuzzybear. We know that’s what happened. Not only in mexico but in America, south America and central. They mostly died from disease and killed by the European invasion. History is clear on what happened to some of my ancestors.

fuzzybear44 November 5, 2015 at 10:04 pm

I know the Euro did a number on the Indians here In the states. However unlike the ones in the u.s, Mexico population bounce back. That’s why there is such a big Mestizo nation, couldn’t get that without an native population being there. I also have some native ancestors to(verified), so I don’t play around with the information

cwm85 November 4, 2015 at 11:14 am

Mexico is a mestizo nation. Predominant, like 90 percent.

fuzzybear44 November 5, 2015 at 10:12 pm

I did say, that they have worked very hard to promote that image. However Mestizo is a tricky word. There are pure Europeans listed as Mestizo, because of that image. The government forgets or doesn’t teach about the African bloodlines or that those black mestizos mixed into the bigger population. That’s all I’m saying. However this is getting old , so you guys believe what you want

marjanel November 6, 2015 at 8:08 am

That is true fuzzybear.In Mexico mestizo is identity that they built to identify the nation”we are all mestizos”.In México there are Also many indigenous that are listed mestizo because”they are culturally” although they are not,in many other latín Americans countries they would be considera indigenous.

She’s castiza but without all the makeup (and before her nosejob) she had prominent náhuatl features. 70% european my ass, I demand a dna retest lol

marjanel October 9, 2015 at 2:10 pm

You say that she is a castiza but want a retest because she must be for you less 70 %? To be a castiza she must be at least 75 % European.

MadBadDog October 15, 2015 at 2:15 am

*I meant she looks mestiza, not castiza (don’t know how to edit comments)

anen87 February 16, 2016 at 4:15 am

True. She not a castiza but a Harniza and looks it too.
Castizo (father) + mestizo (mother) = harnizo ( her)

luckystar September 29, 2015 at 2:58 am

She is not african mexican. Her only 3% of african heritage could also came from SPAIN
did you see the 23andme of people from spain???????????

lelo4 October 2, 2015 at 10:14 am

Spaniards score 0% African on 23andme, she’s part African because slaves were brought to Mexico

Malefactor September 21, 2015 at 5:59 pm

Is a Harniza

ihatemostpeople July 24, 2015 at 1:39 pm

It’s a fact that she’s a whore and a bitch. I feel so bad for her ex, I’m sure he’s no angel but she definitely screwed him over. It seemed like he was so in love with her, I liked them as a couple.

You sound deranged and too invested in someone else’s personal life…

cwm85 July 20, 2015 at 4:33 am

Mostly spanish, mestizo that’s what I thought. She’s also 3 percent African so she is African American too. She’s tri-racial technically. She doesn’t look Italian. Lol. She has clear mestizo features.

fuzzybear44 September 22, 2015 at 8:47 pm

It wouldn’t be African American you idiot . It would be a Mexican of African ancestry, who was most likely the contributor

did you see the 23andme of people from spain???????????
and 3% isnt too much to look tri racial.

fuzzybear44 September 29, 2015 at 11:51 am

@ lucky

While that is possible, I don’t. Think so.3% would put it within the last 3-4 generations, meaning probably a black Mexican was the donor. Mexico had a lot of black people( both African American, Louisiana Creole, black Indian, and Afromexican or Afromestizo)

luckystar October 1, 2015 at 12:27 am

@ fuzzybear44

You are wrong. 3% Is distant, and im sure it came from europe. The genes cant die if you mix with others people that have one too. Many southern europeans does have negroids genes because the moors were arabs, and many arab does have at least 5% sub saaharan genes in north africa/middle eastern.
Ive saw many 23andme from argentines too and guess what? some people does havene groids came from SPAIN
black people was killed in Argentina before Italian immigration

Well I did say it was possible. However to me 3% isn’t that distant. It’s like within 150yrs or 5 generations, and I’m sure her family has been here longer than that. However to me, it doesn’t really matter seeing how no matter what, the original source was some black person

Quote:

Well I do agree that many Europeans have Negroid /Congoid ancestry. also that the majority of moors were black /arab. However you might want to up the amount of black ancestry the north African/middle eastern people have. Many North Africans as well as middle Eastern people are straight up black, while many of the rest are mixed with black(of varied degrees)

Quote:
(black people was killed in Argentina before Italian immigration)

You’re partially right about this. The majority of the black males were killed, because of (Operation GET BEHIND THE DARKIE). This is when Argentina freed its slave , but made the males join the army. Which they quickly put them on the front line, while the whites stayed safe. then there was the yellow fever problem, which did its damage. This left the black women and children alone, to the new incoming Italian men. Who quickly went after those women, getting rid of the black color.

luckystar October 1, 2015 at 10:08 am

12% is supposed to mean great-grandfather. But things aren’t always this way, many Blacks have more than 12% of white genes and they have no white great-grandparents or something. Genes are complicated.

This is interesting that you brought this up, and yes Genes are very complicated. This could be one reason, it’s called the( Brown Baby Project).Thousands of half black kids were send to America from Europe to be adopted by black families in the late 40’s early 50’s( most never knowing they were adopted). This would give their grandkids 12% euro blood. However maybe they were like me, (out of sight , out of mind.). I never knew one of my grandfathers was white, or that the other one wasn’t from this country. The reason is. I never asked about my grandfathers. They both passed away, before I was born. My father talked a little about his father, but he never once mention he was white. I saw his picture all the time, but I didn’t know who that white man was, and I never asked. My mother never once stated, that the man who she called father , wasn’t her biological father(she knew, but never told us, and we never asked). So you could imagine my surprise, when I found all this stuff out ( and I’m still finding out things).I don’t know about, but a lot of the black people I know, don’t talk about family members who aren’t there anymore. To hear it, most black people couldn’t tell you anything about their great grandparents

@fuzzybear44

North Africa had recent European invasion
few North Africans even have more than 30% of black genes, and these are part of the miserable society of the countries
The upper class is exclusively European and Semitic

fuzzybear44 October 30, 2015 at 12:06 am

@Lucky

Yes , I’m very familiar with the European tidal wave that rolled into north Africa. however I’m pretty sure there are far more than a few who are more than 30%. Also Semitic is just a language group, that many different people speak(it has no color restriction)

@luckystar

Semitic is part of a language group, that’s it. Yes Arabs speak it, but so do Ethiopians and a number of other people. Now as for your 23andme results, ok that’s one Moroccan, I never said they were all the same. Even your blogger states at least half of their ancestry comes from Iraq and Syria plus Euro DNA, so I don’t know about that both my parents are Berber stuff. The avg African American has Euro Dna. However Oprah Winfrey has no European dna , while Whoopi Goldberg does. Yet aren’t both of them African American?

anen87 February 16, 2016 at 4:24 am

Fuzzybear44 is correct. Unlike spaniard DNA The fact that mexican’s subsaharan african% is higher than MENA% means they inherited extra black blood from elsewhere (fresh slaves brought from africa)

Eva Longoria is 70% EUROPEAN, which makes her mostly White. You don’t have to have light eyed or haired to be White you stupid fuck thick fuck. Hispanics derives from “Hispania” of Spain just like Latino derives from “Latium” in Italy which are all White people. You racist fucking cunt.

Firstly I don’t think many people find Beyonce and Rihanna that attractive, in fact they are below average.. especially Beyonce. A lot of people can agree on that, secondly I can easily find a list of Beautiful White Woman anywhere in the world that would beat your narrow minded opinion… I can find some that come just as close as what you listed…

These White Woman are just a few.

lisa78419 May 10, 2014 at 5:18 pm

to say she’s beautiful because she is not white as if it’s a fact is a little offensive. you shouldn’t state your opinions as if they are facts. you should’ve maybe said “I think she is beautiful because..” I think color doesn’t matter when it comes to beauty.
