    She has a varied background as maternal great-grandmother was from Gibraltar who then married a British soldier stationed in the country at the time.

    The star also has Irish ancestry on her father’s side of the family as well as has Italian from her seven times great-grandfather who emigrated to Gibraltar from Genoa.
