What Ethnicity Are the Kardashian and Jenner Sisters?

Fans who have been keeping up with the Kardashians for years may think they know everything about the famous family from who’s had the most plastic surgery to who is the shortest sister. But one thing that stumps even the most loyal fan is what their ethnicity is.

For the Kardashians, their father’s side is the most obvious but what is Mama Kris‘ ancestry? And how about the Jenner sisters? What’s their ethnicity? Here’s the answer to where all the siblings can trace their roots back to.

What is the ethnicity of the Kardashians?

It’s pretty much common knowledge that the Kardashian siblings are Armenian on their father’s side.

Kris Jenner married her first husband on July 8, 1978, and gave birth to Kourtney a year later. The pair went on to have three more children together and welcomed Kim in 1980, Khloé in 1984, and Robert Jr., in 1987. 

Robert Kardashian Sr., who passed away from esophageal cancer in 2003, was a third-generation Armenian-American. According to the Daily Maila prophet warned the Kardashian ancestors, known then as the Kardaschoffs, that there would soon be famine and death where they lived. Following that warning, the family picked up and moved to America.

As for their momager, well contrary to popular belief over the years she is not Middle Eastern. She is of English, Irish, Dutch, German, and Scottish descent, meaning the Kardashian siblings are a mix of Armenia and Western European.

What is the ethnicity of the Jenner sisters?

When it comes to the Jenner sisters, they too share their mother’s English, Irish, Dutch, German, and Scottish roots but what ethnicity is their father?

After her first marriage ended, Kris wed Caitlyn (formally known as Bruce) Jenner. Together, they had two children welcoming Kendall in 1995 and Kylie in 1997.

The former Olympian is Canadian, Welsh and like Kris, has English, Irish, Scottish and Dutch ancestry as well. This dispels the rumor that Kendall and Kylie have Middle Eastern roots.
