She’s so beautiful

If she is mixed she is one of the least attractive mixed people i have seen (Facewise). She look like Amy from Below Deck…..

I don’t think she qualifies as ‘Manx’ and is purely mixed race. Her mother is looks Indo to me.

Her mother isn’t white (look at pic below).

She’s Manx and something else. Perhaps Fijian or Islander (her mother looked Polynesian).

She looks like a female version of Seth Macfarlane.

Correction: She not is Manx. She is Irish. Celtic people are Irish.

How do you know she is of Irish descent?

The Irish, Scottish, Manx, and Welsh are all of Celtic origin.

She wore an Ireland national rugby team shirt of her Instagram profile, perhaps she’s part Irish. What is certain is that her mother is not white. , For whatever reason she posted her father, her sister and her (paternal) grandparents’ pics on Instagram, but nothing about her mother.

her mom is a mulatto, if that’s her mom

She might be, the whole issue is confused.

That photo just confuses the situation more. The sister looks French or Persian.

andrew March 24, 2016 at 5:05 pm

French and Persians are very different people, you’re really confused.

Her mother isn’t white, though she’s never said what she is, so that’d be weird to speculate.

Her last name certainly fits her appearance. She looks like a dog.
