Ella was born in London on Oct. 4, 1996. Her parents are Jamaican-English chef and former model Lorraine Pascale and Polish jazz musician and entrepreneur Kazimierz Balinski-Jundzill. They split in 2000, but according to Ella, "they're still best friends."
Ella opened up about her mixed-race upbringing in a 2018 British Vogue interview, saying, "It was confusing, but I've since realized there's no real label that goes with it. It's more just about who you are and being true to yourself. Your people will find you."
