Three of Mila’s grandparents are named Boris, Roza/Rosa, and Yitzhak.

A 23andMe DNA test taken by Mila stated that her genetic ancestry is:

*96%-98% Ashkenazi Jewish

Mila has also said:

The amount of guilt that I’ve perfected the use of – already on my 3-year-old – is magical… I took a 23 and Me test, where you find out… what’s your DNA… and I’m thinking “I’m going to be exotic… there’s going to be something wonderful about me.” No, ya’ll, I am 96% Ashkenazi Jew. You know what that means? I’m inbred. I am really Jewish, you guys. There is nothing about me that’s exotic. I am a Jew. You know what that means? Guilt.

    @tamtam — Her nationality (nation where she was born) is Ukranian but her ETHNICITY is Jewish. People often get the two confused. For example, no one is ethnically American. Everyone in America is ethnically something else, but their nationality is American. The same goes for all countries in Europe. They all have some immigrants (albeit it a small amount) from other countries.
