    Surprisingly I thought the mother would be more mixed, but she looks fully European. She might have a small percentage of Indigenous blood though, which isn’t out of the realm of possibility. The father actually has a more non-European look, even though he is 100% European.

    He mentioned his maternal grandfather was from Peru here, and on a video but I can’t find it.

    His paternal grandparents’ surnames were “Hammond” and “McCarthy”, so his father likely has Irish ancestry as well.
