Ned Fulmer is an American internet personality. He is part of the comedy group The Try Guys, along with Keith Habersberger, Zach Kornfeld, and Eugene Lee Yang.
Ned has said that he is “50% Italian, 9/32 Welsh, 3/32 English, 3/32 Irish, and 1/32 that we don’t know.” While Ned’s mother is of Italian descent, his other fractions are not precisely accurate. It is not clear what fractions of Welsh, English, and Irish he is, but they are likely not specifically what he mentioned. He also has German, Dutch, and Scots-Irish/Northern Irish ancestry from his father’s side.
Ned is married to Ariel, with whom he has two children.

Could he actually be more Welsh than what it appears? To me, it doesn’t look like he is even near 9/32 Welsh. But his paternal grandmother’s sister was a member of the Welsh Society of Western New England. So I don’t know.
Price and Reece are common surnames in Wales. And Jones, of course.
