    • Manila says:

      Include Andalusian and Castilian as part of her Spanish ancestry. Also, add Basque as part of her Colombian ancestry.

      Paulina’s matrilineal ancestry can be traced back to her seventh great-grandmother, María Marta de Urueta.

    I am not sure if ? Gómez was Clara Elvira Gómez Tamara because the article below is likely inaccurate for the relationship between Paulina and Clara.

    Here’s the source, however it’s in Spanish: http://www.telemundo47.com/entretenimiento/destacados/Sofia-Vergara-y-Ariadna-Gutierrez-Arevalo-Miss-Colombia-podrian-ser-familia-363250061.html

    She is related with Sofia Vergara by her maternal side.

  5. Nick Quiroga says:

    ‘Correction’, Paulina also has French heritage from her mom’s side, their last name ‘Dieppa’ is a disambiguation of ‘Dieppe’ which is clearly a French last name.
