Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez is the daughter of former stage actress Mandy Dawn Teefey (née Cornett) and Ricardo Joel Gomez.

Her father, Ricardo Gomez, is from Mexico, and her mother is of part Italian descent.

Regarding her Hispanic heritage, Gomez said: “My family does have Quinceañeras, and we go to the communion church. We do everything that’s Catholic, but we don’t really have anything traditional except [that we] go to the park and have barbecues on Sundays after church.”
