Kendall Jenner is an American socialite, model, and television personality.

Kendall is the first daughter of athlete Caitlyn Jenner (born William Bruce Jenner) and socialite Kris Jenner (born Kristen Mary Houghton). She has a younger sister, Kylie Jenner, and eight half-siblings, including socialites Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, and Rob Kardashian (all through Kris), and Brody Jenner and musician Brandon Jenner (through Caitlyn). Kendall’s nieces are Penelope Disick and North West.

Kendall’s ancestry includes English, as well as smaller amounts of Scottish, Irish, Dutch, German, and Welsh.

Kendall’s middle name, Nicole, is after her mother’s friend Nicole Brown Simpson, who was murdered in 1994.

Kendall’s paternal grandfather was William Hugh Jenner (the son of Hugh Burton Jenner and Bertha Mary Cunningham or Yarn). William was born in Canada. Kendall’s great-grandfather Hugh was born in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada, the son of The Rev. John Hugh Jenner and Mary Fisher MacIntyre. Bertha was also Canadian, from Newfoundland and Labrador, and was the daughter of George Yard and Charlotte Day.

Kendall’s paternal grandmother is Esther Ruth McGuire (the daughter of Walter Sherman McGuire and Kareen Maude Wright). Esther was born in Ohio. Walter was the son of Daniel Ebenezer McGuire and Martha Day. Kareen was the daughter of Thaddeus Lincoln Wright and Lola Dell Reynard.

Kendall’s maternal grandfather was Robert True Houghton (the son of True Otis Houghton and Mary Lee Pickens). Robert was born in California. True was the son of Otis Sewall Houghton and Lula Laura Bernard/Barnard. Mary Lee was the daughter of Charles/Charlie Luran A. Pickens and Lizzie/Elizabeth Mae/Mary A. Douglas/Douglass.

Kendall’s maternal grandmother is Mary Gorden/Jo Campbell (the daughter of Gorden/Gordon Lowe Campbell and Lou Ethel Wyatt). Kendall’s grandmother Mary was born in Arkansas. Gorden was the son of Jefferson Davis Campbell and Freedonia/Fredonia/Fredom May Teaney. Lou was the daughter of Walter Alba Wyatt and Mary Tiny VanZandt/Van Zandt.

Kendall’s matrilineal line can be traced back to her great-great-great-great-grandmother, S. Margaret “Maggie” Gray, who was born, c. 1833, in Mississippi.

A DNA test whose results were displayed on the show The View (2017) stated that Caitlyn Jenner’s genetic ancestry is:

*99.8% European
——–*66% British and Irish
*.1% Middle Eastern & North African
*<.1% South Asian

It’s funny how, when a white person has dark hair, dark eyes and a little tan (in that case, fake tan), some people start to say they can’t be 100% European. As if every Europeans looked the same. She looks white, which she is. Period.

jstv2015 November 10, 2015 at 6:24 pm

she doesn’t look full white

midori29 November 11, 2015 at 12:06 pm

I read her mother has native american indian blood at 10 to 15 percent. So Kendall wpuld be 6 percent native american. Her sisters Kim and Kloe had a dna test that showed 6 percent indian.

luckystar May 29, 2016 at 11:00 am

That high percent is fake as sh*t. Kris Jenner does do have native american blood but is from hundred years ago. Kris jenner parents doesnt look even half native american, they all look white.
The same dna test showed that kim is more than 90% armenian, since what??? her mother is not armenian and armenians are a mix of many things. Kendall is caucasian, get over it.

midori29 August 11, 2016 at 12:25 pm

You sound stupid. I am black and Native American South American. Its really called Amerindian and both my grandparents are black and Amerindian so yes I have seen plenty of people mixed with Indian. And her mother Kris did say that she is mixed with native American as Americans would call it.

luckystar August 19, 2016 at 1:15 am

Kendall looks european
And all kris jenner looks british before plastic surgery
Fake dna test, because it says kim is more than 90% armenian
And, the pseudo cherokee is lost in their family tree because all of their grandparents loooks white, get over it
Kendall fits in many euro countries
she could be even greek

luckystar June 7, 2016 at 1:18 pm

I think you never saw someone 10-15% native american lol.

Hill April 5, 2017 at 12:58 pm

yeah everyone here thinks no white person can have dark hair and eyes. it took me a while to comprehend how stupid some people are.

neiltennant December 9, 2017 at 10:22 am

she looks part Iranian or armenian

like her kardeshian sisters

blue September 1, 2015 at 6:41 am

she looks like Sandra Bullock

Capricious October 9, 2015 at 9:16 pm

More like Emma Watson though

neiltennant August 8, 2015 at 6:14 am

nice to see that some dictator here has deleted my posts again

i said that she is much darker than her father bruce jenner and that she looks like her half brother

and her half brother is the son of the blue eyed LINDA THOMPSON and the british or german looking bruce jenner

follers August 8, 2015 at 1:05 pm

Are you crazy? Your post hasn’t been deleted, it’s still right here below Sparkles’.

sparkles180 August 7, 2015 at 9:22 pm

Wow I thought she was italian or greek and possibly native. She doesn’t look english at all. She’s very pretty though!

midori29 November 11, 2015 at 12:08 pm

She has native american dna, on her mother’s side. Those eyes are slightly mongoloid.

neiltennant August 5, 2015 at 8:57 am

very interesting

one thing i didn’t get

BRUCE JENNER is very white and i know pics of him from olympia 1976. He was just german or english looking guy

but he has very dark eyed and dark haired son

and the mother of his son is the blue eyed linda thompson

on the other hand KENDALL looks also very dark typed european
her mother is not as dark

KENDALL and her HALF BROTHERS look the same

on the other hand i talked to some people who are reading people and other stuff and they know kendall jenner and said all


but i corrected them and said she is not the daughter of ROB KARDASHIAN and they said what ??

GypsyQueen July 19, 2015 at 1:18 pm

Caitlyn Jenner is the prettiest Jenner.

M May 31, 2015 at 6:33 am

Even though I hate the Katrashians, I have to admit that Kendall is pretty. Her attitude is ugly and repulsive, same with her other whorish sisters.

TheLord May 3, 2015 at 10:50 pm

In my opinion out of her other sisters she’s the only I find attractive

fuzzybear44 April 12, 2015 at 4:52 am

Isn’t she supposed to be knock up by her sisters man?

fuzzybear44 April 12, 2015 at 5:00 am

wait it’s supposed to be the other one

theropod April 1, 2015 at 7:30 am

I kinda get the “English” part. She looks like Emma Watson.

For me she looks French.

WTF November 28, 2014 at 2:40 pm

She’s prettier than Kim.

neiltennant October 18, 2014 at 2:23 pm

on this picture she looks like SANDRA BULLOCK :-)

shahram September 17, 2014 at 2:42 pm

what!!!!!!!! English, Dutch, Irish or Scottish. it is ridiculous.
I thought/think she is Persian or Turkish or Armenian or east-european.

follers September 17, 2014 at 2:45 pm

Kendall Jenner is as WASP as they come in modern-day America. She isn’t even significantly Irish or anything, just mostly English.

angrygirl19 September 17, 2014 at 7:48 pm

Wtf r u talking about. Kris is WHITE. Robert was the Krdashian girls’ father. Kendall’s father is Bruce, who’s WHITE. Wat r u talking about. And Kendall’s grandmother from Bruce’s side is Irish

follers September 17, 2014 at 8:22 pm

Kendall’s paternal grandmother wasn’t fully Irish, just a bit.

angrygirl19 September 18, 2014 at 3:35 pm

Gotcha! I was snapping at Shahram

shahram September 22, 2014 at 8:34 am

WTF are you saying?! I didn’t say her father is kardashian. just look at her face, her nose and her skin color and… . don’t be stupid, this girl is not related to yellow ( XD ) european. (@follers said: she looks like to english people, I doubt about it, I never be in england but she is not like english peoples I have seen on TV. maybe a remote village in england has these kind of faces and skin color. :D
just search “sedef avci” in google. she’s a turkish actress. I didn’t mean she is certainly persian/turkish/armenian/easteuropean but I mean she is from this side of the world not that side. XD

thomas1987 October 17, 2014 at 6:58 am

She looks very Dutch to me. So I don’t know what your talking about.
not all northern Europeans are blonde with pale skin .
I think you should travel more to learn about the diversity in Europe, there are quite exotic looks there.
and so many people in England, ireland, have black hair with olive skin . Have you ever heard of Collin Farrell for example who is quite tan. and Kendall actually looks alot like Sandra bullock, who is German. Fix your definition of “white”….

stonelord October 18, 2014 at 1:03 pm

well said, Thomas. Nearly half of native English people are not blue eyed and almost half of the Irish have dark brown hair. There has been a variety of looks since 3000 BC…

Check7t October 24, 2014 at 9:51 pm

Looks very English to me.

Dogg November 22, 2014 at 12:15 am

East Europeans look nothing like Persian, Turkish and Armenian people.

FTBy5q April 11, 2015 at 9:48 pm


sparkles180 August 7, 2015 at 9:23 pm

Same here! I thought she was ethnic or south european. She doesn’t look english to me.

J420 August 14, 2015 at 8:23 am

I have been to England, Scotland, Ireland and the Netherlands and I’ve seen people who look like Kendall Jenner before. She looks very English so I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Very average looking.

SEEXYPUREBLOODLATINA July 5, 2014 at 8:56 pm

Y’all crazy! She’s a typical looking white grl, black roots my ass, yea when shes on her back like ugly kim then she’s part black lol!!! Oh yea did y’all know ho runs in blood haaaa I cracks me up! Hate them kracker kardash!

Princess June 8, 2014 at 10:49 pm

Kendall has African roots on her mother’s side.

Shawn January 17, 2014 at 12:13 am

She the best looking sister.

eldiablo1313 January 9, 2014 at 6:09 pm

She looks like a lighter version of Kim

cecile September 29, 2013 at 3:26 pm

I am dutch and she looks like she could be dutch in face shape and eye shape but her hair and eyes are quite dark so she could also be scottish, irish, english

theropod June 26, 2013 at 1:04 am

Interesting and rather ironic…Kylie and Kendall Jenner look more Armenian than the actual Kardashians. Armenian girls, who are not as dark as Kim/Kourtney:

Kim looks very Arab. Kourtney looks like half Filipino. Khloe looks plain European (Romanian, Serbian…)

loveliya1998 August 4, 2013 at 6:16 pm

you’re right!


Kendall Jenner (as well as Kylie Jenner) is only white on her father, Bruce Jenner’s, side. Her mother (as well as her three older sisters Kourtney, Kim and Khloe) is Armenian, which is a country in the middle-east. Therefore she and her sister Kendall are half-Armenian, half-English/Scottish/Irish/Dutch. Just for the record, Armenian is not white, nor is it in europe.

unicornsx September 18, 2013 at 4:26 am

Her mother is not Armenian, shes white. Kim stated this herself

andrew September 18, 2013 at 5:23 am
Jrose10 January 18, 2014 at 11:59 am

ONCE AGAIN, Armenia is a European Country! Omg the ignorance. Look up an actual list of the countries which make up Europe! Yes it is right on the border of the middle east but it is considered Europe. And what makes someone “white?” Did you know that almost all european countries have mixed with Asia and or Africa at some point? It is very possible for people in Armenia, the middle east, or anywhere for that matter to have mixed features. Light hair, dark skin. Dark skin and hair, light eyes. All very possible. And Kris Jenner is not Armenian. Sorry.

ihatemostpeople March 11, 2014 at 3:43 am

Kris Jennifer is not Armenian. She’s white. Omfg… Some people are so stupid.

Me myself and I January 15, 2013 at 6:30 am

25% Scottish, 25% Dutch from mom and 50% English (or maybe 48% since there is some Irish) from her dads side so yeah mostly English

Jessie March 11, 2014 at 2:39 am

Actually it would be 25% English and 25% Irish since Esther McGuire is his mother has only Irish ancestry.

AllyG.Rdz13 December 15, 2012 at 7:13 pm

Isn’t her mother of Mexican descent?

nnnnn January 15, 2013 at 2:16 am

I wouldn’t call that person a “Lady”

ihatemostpeople March 11, 2014 at 3:42 am

Um no! She’s white… Doesn’t look Mexican at all.

marjanel April 17, 2014 at 9:39 pm

Do you know that there are white mexicans? Mexican is not a race

J420 August 16, 2015 at 3:29 am

Correct, Mexican is not a race but how the f**k can a White person be of Mexican “descent?” that’s also like saying that a white person is of American descent. Whites are from Europe so grow a brain you idiots.

midori29 November 11, 2015 at 12:29 pm

Yes her mom said on Keeping with the Kardashians that she was part Native American Indian

Holly12 November 20, 2012 at 6:36 am

I think when Kendall reaches her prime she’s going to be nicer than her sister Kim. Kim must be so annoyed she didn’t get the tall gene like Kendall, as Kim always wanted to be a Catwalk model.

Hope Moretti June 29, 2012 at 1:36 pm

what about her italian side?

Valaina June 16, 2012 at 9:06 pm

shes very pretty..hopefully she doesnt turn into kim kardashian with all the fake breast and fake tan

M March 21, 2012 at 2:48 pm

She looks very Scottish to me.

yeah March 10, 2012 at 9:12 am

someone said she was russian….

eee February 27, 2012 at 11:12 am

she does looks more english than ducth she kinda looks like emma watson

Scarlett February 10, 2012 at 2:12 pm

She is definitely Scottish and Dutch from Kris Jenner, but what proof is there that she has English roots when Jenner can be a French, Scottish and English surname. Her dad hasn’t said he is of English origins!

anen February 7, 2012 at 4:57 pm

I’m just curious what do you think she looks more like: Scottish, Dutch, or English?

Anisa Ali February 7, 2012 at 10:30 pm

I think her Scottish side overrules :)

Allicat February 12, 2012 at 11:17 pm

Probably Dutch

Pasqal April 13, 2012 at 3:32 am

If she was blonde, had lighter skin and eyes ..yes she’d look like Dutch girl.. So and Kim lmao.

Aria February 6, 2012 at 9:49 pm

Lol, why is it that on almost every thread someone will mention a “mongoloid ascent”?!! xD

storm January 28, 2012 at 1:43 am

i think she is distant mongoloid

aka stormfront? January 29, 2012 at 3:51 pm

go crawl back under your rock…… racist!

SparkleTime January 6, 2012 at 6:07 pm

She looks like a prettier version of her mother.

Eva January 2, 2012 at 11:23 am
