In case you missed it, Miss California Nadia Mejía’s dad is a famous star from the ‘90s!
The 19-year-old, who competed in the Miss USA pageant on Sunday, is the daughter of Gerardo Mejía, who co-starred in “Can’t Buy Me Love,” but is best known for his 1991 hit song “Rico Suave.”
Nadia also has pageant roots. Her mother, Kathy Mejía, is a former Miss West Virginia USA 1989.
The entire family was featured in the VH1 docuseries “Suave Says,” which followed Gerardo’s life as a music executive and youth pastor.
While Nadia did not win the Miss USA competition, she did earn an L.A. models contract and scholarship with her Miss California win.
