    Alexa is only Indigenous Mexican, after weeks of researchers, her family members look 100% Indigenous Mexican. Her dad is half-Swedish and half-English. There might be some African roots somewhere too.

    The man Carole married, was Dennis Wilson of the Beach Boys. If Scott Michael Vanerstrom Wilson really is Alexa’s father (and by all accounts, it looks like he is), then I did get his parents right. He has a book about “what it’s like being the son of Dennis Wilson”. It says in a blog promoting the book that his bio father was John Robert Vanerstrom, and that his mother’s parents were from Canada and UK.
