On Mother’s Day 2018 in the UK, Nathalie Emmanuel posted a photo of her mother and grandmother on Instagram, taken in the mid-70’s. On the comments section in response to a follower on Instagram, Nathalie replied that her father and mother are BOTH mixed with British and Caribbean. Her maternal grandmother is/was white British, which would make her mother mixed race and only half Caribbean, not full Caribbean like you state Ethni. Personally, I think Nathalie looks completely mixed race, she does not look 75% Caribbean, more like 50% White and 50% Black. All of the above has come straight from Nathalie herself on social media, so make of it what you will…

So her mother is deffinitely from DR and not from Dominica?

Mother is from Dominica, not to be confused with the Dominican Republic

She’s got nice skin (I know that sounds a bit freaky). So, she’s more or less full Caribbean. Great mix from her parents.

Nothing wrong with what you said,She has a lot of nice things

she reminds me of ALICIA KEYS

Curly hair is beautiful on dark women, but she can’t pull it off. She should have straight hair. Would go very well with her.

fuzzybear44 March 23, 2016 at 10:58 pm

Disagree, she pulls it off just fine

phaedra May 15, 2016 at 7:07 pm

She has a Middle Eastern look. Their women predominantly have straight hair and it goes well with them.

Quote(She has a Middle Eastern look. Their women predominantly have straight hair and it goes well with them.)

Okay maybe she does have that look, and maybe the straighten hair works for the women over there. However speaking strictly as a man, I think she looks much sexier with her natural curly hair, and prefer her that way

Hill September 11, 2017 at 7:54 pm

Uhmmm. She does NOT look Middle-Eastern.

neiltennant September 20, 2017 at 2:00 pm

she does not look middle eastern

no wayy

30% black in my opinion. She is a beauty!

midori29 May 19, 2016 at 10:06 am

@slowdive no way she is at least 50-60% black African. At 30% African mixed people look dark Mexican, dark Indian or dark white ie. Jennifer Lopez types thats quadroon category, 30% or less would not have kinky curly Afro textured hair, thats black African hair. Singer Mariah Carey looks alot whiter than her and Mariah is 40% black African

It’s possible for a very dark African and a pale blonde woman to have 50/50 kids, black kids and white kids. There are no guarantees how black or white any kid will look. As it is, if I didn’t know her ethnicity I’d have guessed she had maybe a white mum and mixed race dad – she looks like she has more white than black in her.

midori29 May 19, 2016 at 10:10 am

@slowdive actress Rashida Jones is 30% black

ses101 May 30, 2017 at 4:48 pm

In that picture she looks more or less white, maybe with a bit of distant south asian, etc in her. Her sister looks closer to mixed race, which again shows how brothers and sisters don’t always reflect their ethnicity equally.

Peanut September 20, 2016 at 7:03 pm

yes. average saints lucians are genetically 74,5% black, 18% white, 7,5% amerindian. dominicans are 35,5% black, 58% white, 6,5% amerindian, so theoretically she would be 58,5% white, 36,375% black, 5,125% amerindian. seems about right, based on her looks.

flo April 18, 2017 at 4:17 pm

She’s Dominican from Dominica, not Dominican Republic.

fuzzybear44 April 19, 2017 at 1:01 am

I don’t know what her breakdown is, but don’t let the outward appearance trick you

fuzzybear44 January 10, 2016 at 12:06 am

Man, Caribbean people love moving to Europe. I thought she was African stock

fuzzybear44 March 6, 2016 at 12:29 am

Well she is very pretty. I like her hair natural like that, instead of when she straightens it

midori29 May 19, 2016 at 10:07 am

My family is Carribean there are TONS of black Carribeans in Europe
