Cindy Kimberly has been gaining popularity since Justin Bieber posted a photo of her on his Instagram account five years ago. As she juggled school and her £3-an-hour babysitting job in Spain, the rising Spanish model was a relatively obscure figure. However, an incident in December 2015 changed her life forever, and she has since amassed a massive fan base.
Questions about her race and ethnicity have arisen as a result of her celebrity, which the model apparently finds funny
She, on the other hand, takes it all in stride as she mingles with celebrities and travels the globe while remaining grounded beside her Spanish mother.
Cindy Kimberly’s Incidence That Catapulted Her Into America’s Eyes
Justin Bieber, enamored by Kimberly’s beauty, released a photo of her on Instagram in December 2015 and requested his fans to help him find her. To any fan, having their photo shared by one of the world’s top stars would mean the world, but little did she know that her life as she knew it was about to change.
She was signed by the Spanish modeling agency UNO Models in Barcelona and Madrid shortly after her discovery in 2016. She was sought after by many additional events, including the 2017 Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week in Madrid, after being signed by the agency and participating in a few catwalks that year.
What’s even more intriguing is that corporations rushed to sign her. She was signed by the famous cosmetics manufacturer TRESemmé to become the company’s face after appearing in a Madrid fashion show, and she was just 17 years old at the time. Her Instagram followers increased as well, and she currently has over six million.
Misconceptions about Cindy Kimberly’s ethnicity arose as a result of her celebrity
As if having a great appearance wasn’t enough, her ethnicity generated a lot of interest and even some misunderstandings. Some websites stated her ancestry could be traced back to Asia, while others claimed she was Dutch, and yet others claimed she was White.
This wasn’t entirely false, as it turned out. Her claim to being Dutch was somewhat genuine, but she admitted that she was not Dutch at all, save from the fact that she was born in the Netherlands. As for her Asian background, she revealed on Twitter that she is half-Indonesian.
“This is my favorite remark on my instagram bc im literally Asian,” she commented on January 16, 2019. Cindy Kimberly responds to frequently asked questions from her fans.

She’s also talked about her Indo ancestry on her Instagram page. Her Facebook bio describes her as “Spanish Indo” (as in Indonesian), meaning that her father was also an Indo.
Cindy Kimberly offered to babysit for £3 an hour to assist her mother
Kimberly was still in high school when Bieber shared that life-changing photo of hers, and she supported her mother financially by babysitting for £3 an hour in Costa Blanca, Spain. According to the Daily Mail, Kimberly herself revealed this. In 2015, she even advertised her babysitting services to potential families on her online CV resume.
She put in her CV, “Cindy Kimberly is my given name, and I am sixteen years old. I’m willing to go shopping and assist with homework. Please contact me if you are seeking for a babysitter and would like to learn more about me. I enjoy working with youngsters and can assist them with English because I am fluent in the language.”
Ironically, it was the same photo she used to promote her babysitting services that drew Justin Bieber’s attention. She’s made a name for herself after five years and a slew of modeling jobs and endorsements.
She made news just a year ago, in February 2019, when she was photographed with British racer Lewis Hamilton as he disembarked from his private plane at Barcelona’s El Prat airport. As they departed the airport, the Spanish model was photographed grasping Hamilton’s hands and peering into his eyes. However, the model, who is also a painter, quickly debunked the claims, claiming that they were only friends. She claims to spend the majority of her time with her mother and cat. “All friendships are open to love,” he continued sarcastically.
Despite her current lifestyle of private jets and traversing the world with prominent celebrities, she is incredibly grounded—a characteristic that her mother undoubtedly helped develop in her.
She never misses an opportunity to offer a particular tribute to her mother. She obviously thinks her mother is so cute that she wants to protect her by putting her in her pocket.
Her father, on the other hand, is never acknowledged save to say that she derives her part Indo heritage from him, hinting to their parents’ divorce.
