“Cuban” is not a race. It is more correct to say that you have Spanish-Cuban, Afro-Cuban or Cuban-Indian ancestors.

Justinian October 30, 2015 at 1:48 am

She looks “white” although her Cuban is not.

Justinian October 30, 2015 at 1:48 am

*Cuban father

Cuban people are tri racial.

lelo4 October 15, 2015 at 5:22 pm

no, most Cubans are either very white or very black, with some being mulattos. Her had is part Afro-cuban though

luckystar December 13, 2015 at 7:42 pm

Tri racials are undefined. Her dad is part afro but also native cuban and spanish :)

loiro February 24, 2016 at 3:44 am

Her dad looks fully Spaniard: http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/multimedia/archive/00035/t2_leon_72181686_35047b.jpg

Saying Cubans are triracial is like saying Americans are triracial.. equally as stupid. Cuba has a large white, black, and mulato population… people with visible Indigenous descent are rare in western parts of Cuba and more frequent in the east, but still NOT the majority among mixed people.. only in two provinces maybe. So most Cubans are indeed Mulatos, not triracials but with a large white minority and a significant black minority.

her dad is ambiguous looking, IMO he’s not 100% Spaniard.

Capricious October 10, 2015 at 6:51 pm

She looks Armenian or Assyrian.

lelo4 October 15, 2015 at 6:00 pm

imo she looks more iraqi or iranian

loiro February 24, 2016 at 3:46 am

She looks European.. not Middle Eastern at all, Mediterranean Middle Easterners rarely look like European ones with the exception of Lebanese and Turkish ones. More European looking Iranians tend to resemble Eastern European people..

You need to get out more.

Most Middle Eastern women, especially Syrians, Lebanese, Kurds (or those from the Levant and Northern Mesopotamia) look exactly like this young woman.

God, what a stupid name

sparkles180 September 26, 2015 at 11:17 pm

She looks very italian.

andrew September 27, 2015 at 6:04 am

no, she’s exotic to be just Italian, because of her father who has an interesting look. He looks a bit like Joaquin Cortes who is Gitano (Gypsy)

Manila September 26, 2015 at 8:21 pm

Lourdes’ grandfather Silvio is still living.

Malefactor September 21, 2015 at 6:46 pm

Her father looks quadroon, she looks white.

loiro February 24, 2016 at 3:39 am

Her father looks fully Spanish.. not quadroon lol, having curly hair doesn’t make you look quadroon. Search the old anthropological term “berid”..

She is not prettier than her mom. Madonna was considered a beauty in her prime, Lourdes just looks like a cheap imitation of her mom.

neiltennant July 16, 2015 at 2:58 pm

madonna is an intelligent woman. Why should have she still have success while other 80s stars do gay pride shows (cindy lauper) :-)

and I’m sure that it was her wish to find hispanic man to make a baby with her

and the result is god-like

she is very good looking

M June 4, 2015 at 6:55 pm

She’s prettier than her mom.

Brigzzz98 January 18, 2014 at 10:31 pm

She looks nothing like her father……madonna just met some cuban guy so she could have a hispanic baby ….

J.J. September 14, 2013 at 9:06 pm

correction; her eyes are hazel (light brown) not dark brown

nnnnn May 24, 2013 at 12:42 am

Madonna is pathetic. She must pay a cuban immigrant for
making her a child

neiltennant May 11, 2013 at 7:17 am

she looks exactly like madonna, but only with a little bit darker complexions

madonna= brown hair+ green eyes

gndg March 24, 2013 at 8:29 pm

beyfox i dont know what is the diference between a spanish(people from spain european country) and the Italians, i went to italy and i don’t find a diference maybe the diference is that i come from europe and you from america

beyfox February 17, 2013 at 10:24 am

she looks very Italian, but when she was a child she looked more hispanic

exotiq February 10, 2013 at 7:18 am

She’s the spitting image of her mother, who is Italian after all. Italians and Latins look very similar.

marjanel August 16, 2014 at 8:10 pm

Italians are more Latins than any latin American. I am Latin American.

Affellay January 13, 2013 at 11:34 am

She looks like an average latina:)

Ali19 January 7, 2013 at 1:36 pm

She kind of looks like Penelope Cruz in that pic

andrew January 5, 2013 at 7:53 pm

she has to fix up her eyebrows. Btw she is an average brunette

mariian93 December 30, 2012 at 12:33 pm

I think she looks italian.

COOLGUY2012 January 1, 2013 at 4:23 pm

Lol, troll. She looks scandinavian.

nnnnn December 17, 2012 at 1:48 pm

She looks too old for her age

anakaren November 14, 2012 at 3:30 am

latina for me

loiro February 24, 2016 at 3:41 am

yes a latina of european descent, and european descent only.. doesn’t look mestizo, mulato, ect. just white.
