    His very handsome though.A lot of Hispanics can pass as Arab though.That’s probably because Arabs and Hispanic have the same genetic mix if you remove native American ancestry(which not every Hispanic has)

  2. Jacklyn 224 says:

    He looks habesha,Somali,Saudi,etc.In Short he looks Arabic or of afro-asianic descent.

  3. Multiethnicchick says:

    Puerto Rican is a multiracial ethnicity so the Irish should come as no surprise. He’s likely as mixed as Alisha Keyes
