Nadia has a flourishing family tree. Her father was an Ecuadorian rapper named Gerardo who had a hit single in 1991 named ‘Rico Suave’ – best name ever. Meanwhile, her mother was a Miss USA contestant in 1989. To say that Nadia has good genes would be a severe understatement, while she’s learned skills from both her parents – she sings, models and reached the Top 5 in this year’s Miss USA contest.
That’s a pretty solid effort when you consider how big the USA is, so we linked up with Nadia to have a little shoot on the sands of Venice Beach, where she shows you exactly why she took out the Miss California title in sizzling fashion.
