Ned has said that he is “50% Italian, 9/32 Welsh, 3/32 English, 3/32 Irish, and 1/32 that we don’t know”. While Ned’s mother appears to be of entirely Italian descent, his other fractions aren’t quite accurate. It’s not easy to determine exactly what fractions of Welsh, English, and Irish he is, but it’s likely not what he mentioned. He also has German, Dutch, and Scots-Irish/Northern Irish ancestry, from his father’s side.
