Her maternal uncle, Antonio Flores, was a singer and actor, her maternal aunt, Rosario Flores, is a two-time Latin Grammy Award-winning singer and actress, and her maternal great-aunt, Carmen Flores, was also a singer. Carmen was the mother of football player and coach Quique Sánchez Flores.

When asked to what degree she is of Argentinian and Romani ancestry, Elena stated:

Half, half. My Argentinian family is descended from Italian immigrants. From them I got the family protection, the taste for meat and pasta. The Romani part is in the art, I enjoy rumba and flamenco, my family, and the little things. I love Latin America and feel happy there.

Elena’s maternal grandfather was Antonio González (born Antonio González Batista, the son of Antonio González and Antonia Batista), a dancer, musician, and composer, also known as El Pescaílla. Elena’s grandfather Antonio was born in Barcelona, Catalonia, and was Romani.

It is not clear if this is accurate. She is also described as being of only Spanish descent.
