Is Selena Gomez Mexican ?

There are many people who wonder about Justin Bieber's girlfriend, Selena Gomez, what is her nationality. So, the question is: "Is Selena Gomez Mexican?"

Selena Gomez is an American actress and singer. 

To be more exact, Selena Gomez was born in Grand Prairie, Texas. She is the daughter of former stage actress Amanda Dawn "Mandy" Teefey and Ricardo Joel Gomez. Selena's father is of Mexican ancestry; her mother, who was adopted, is half Italian

Regarding her Hispanic heritage, Gomez has claimed: "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." 

Gomez's birth parents split when she was five years old and she was raised up as an only child by her working mother. In 2006, Mandy remarried Brian Teefey. She was named after Tejano singer Selena, who passed away almost three years after Gomez was born.

Conclusion: Selena Gomez's mother is half Italian and her father is from Mexico which means that she is a mix of the two.
