9 Celebrities That Prove Genetic Diversity Is Beautiful

Genetics work in mysterious ways. Sometimes children look more like one parent than the other or even more like relatives, grandparents, uncles, or aunts. In today’s compilation, we wanted to show how a multi-ethnic background gave these celebrities their unique beauty.

1. Mariah Carey

This beautiful singer is the daughter of American citizens, Alfred and Patricia. Although both her father and mother were born in the United States, her father is of African-American and Venezuelan-American descent, while her mother is of Irish descent.

2. Charles Melton

This handsome actor was born in Alaska. In addition to being an American, he also has European and Asian blood running through his veins. His father is of English descent, while his mother is Korean by birth.

3. Jason Momoa

Momoa has a fascinating ethnic mix. His father is of Native Hawaiian descent, while his mother is of German and Irish descent. He has also stated in interviews that his mother is also a descendant of the Native American Pawnee tribe, hence his strong connection and activism in defense of native peoples.

4. Zendaya

This young and talented actress is of African-American descent, with Nigerian roots on her father’s side and German and Scottish on her mother’s side. She has been walking around film sets since she was very young, and it was not surprising that one or both of her parents would accompany her. Interestingly, she doesn’t specifically look like either of them but is a perfect mix of both.

5. Chrissy Teigen

6. Dwayne Johnson

Known as “The Rock,” Dwayne began his career as a wrestler, later allowing him to star in action movies. His passion for wrestling also runs in his family. His father, an African-Canadian of Irish descent, was not just a wrestler, he was the first world champion of color in the tag team wrestling category. At the same time, this sport was also important on his mother’s Samoan side: both his grandfather and grandmother had a strong presence in the wrestling world.

7. Vanessa Hudgens

On her father’s side, Vanessa has Irish, French, and Native American ancestry. On her mother’s side, she has Asian ancestry. Vanessa’s mother is a native of the Philippines.

The unstoppable Halle Berry is also a mixed-race celebrity. Her father and mother met while working at the same hospital. He was an assistant, and she was a nurse. On her father’s side, Halle inherited African-American ethnicity, while on her mother’s side, originally from Liverpool, England, she inherited Caucasian ethnicity.

Bonus: the amazing Jesse Williams

If you can’t place him by name, we can give you some clues: for starters, he has been part of countless male beauty lists, including People magazine’s most attractive men, ranking twelfth. With a dark complexion and blue eyes, this actor stole the hearts of all Grey’s Anatomy fans when playing the role of surgeon Jackson Avery.

Still don’t know who he is? He is the perfect example that diversity can be a synonym for beauty. The ethnic mix of his parents, African American on his father’s side and Swedish American on his mother’s side, gave this actor a unique physique that is impossible to overlook.
