This beauty is just plain English?

Don’t think so – she talks about her “English/Irish roots” in the article!

Interesting. I thought she looked more French but I’m not surprised she’s of English ancestry.

Evangeline is an Acadian French name. Nicole is also a French name. I’m pretty sure she is of English heritage (since her surname is Lilly) and French heritage. Acadian French is spoken in Canada, but not in Quebec.

She don’t look like the English I see around me everyday, so there must be more in there as I suspected. It’s the middle-name & her looks.
