Unrelated to Rico, Gina owes all her “dramatic flair” and her confidence to her mom. Gina told Hello Magazine in an interview, “The consistent memory I have of my mother is always supporting me, always being there for me, always telling me I was capable of anything and everything. That I was beautiful just the way I was. That I can continue to open doors by being a sound character versus anything else.”
