Latin music has a special place in the actress' heart because she was born in Mexico to Kenyan parents. She holds dual Kenyan and Mexican citizenship and identifies as a Kenyan-Mexican. 

"I was born in Mexico because my father was teaching at a school in Mexico City," the 30-year-old actress explained in Spanish during an interview with CNN en Español. "I was born during the third year he was there. And when I was 16, I returned to Mexico to learn Spanish. I lived in Taxco, Guerrero and attended the UNAM, the Education Center for Foreigners. [I] lived there for seven months, and I loved it."
