Her eyebrows give her away as East Asian.

i used to watch lizzie mcguire and i thought she was mexican. her filipino side must be mostly spanish with some asian. she looks mestiza but i guess it makes sense because most hispanics are spanish and native american (in the same family as asians)

Same, i thought she was a Mestizo from Mexico. She obviously has significant Spanish ancestry. I wonder how much specifically.

That’s exactly right. If you’re half Asiatic and Mediterranean you’d tend to look Mestizo.

“I say I have Spanish in me but I’m not just Spanish. I’m proud of my ethnicities and I will always be proud of being a Filipino.”

When Lalaine Vergara said that, it means she’s a Filipino but her parents or great grandparents had some Spanish blood line.

Like me, my parents are both Filipinos but both my parents have had grandparents who had a 1/4 Spanish blood. I hope this clarifies everything
