She has Mexican heritage.
"My dad's family is originally from Mexico, but now three generations born in Texas. My mom is a mix of German and Native American. The Latin culture played a much larger role in our lives growing up, especially growing up in Houston. Anytime the family is together, even just my immediate family, there will be homemade Mexican food. Usually, we leave most of the cooking up to my dad, but I help make the tortillas from scratch, guacamole, and salsa."
