The Black Eyed Peas singer believes she inherited the passionate side of her character from her Mexican grandmother.

She said: “Yes, I have Mexican in my ancestry. My Dad’s grandmother was born in Guanajuato. I’m very proud of it – that’s probably where I get my fire!”

“I love going to Mexico. Cabo San Lucas is my spot. I love to hang out by the pool, go fishing, shop for furniture, and I’ve taken painting classes over there. It’s beautiful.”

However, the 33-year-old singer admits she doesn’t like to put too much emphasises on her Latin roots.
She added to Latina magazine: “I don’t go around claiming it big time because there are many more full-bred Latinas that are out there to represent.”

Meanwhile, Fergie has revealed she is keen to start a family with fiance Josh Duhamel, and is planning to ask fellow pop star Gwen Stefani for parenting guidance.

She said: “I’d like to ask Gwen some advice about being a mom, because she’s done a really great job.”

Gwen has a 22-month-old son, Kingston, with husband Gavin Rossdale, and is currently pregnant with the couple’s second child.
