If you’re a fan wondering about the same, we’ve got you covered!
Megan Batoon’s Nationality: Where is She From?
Megan Alicia Batoon was born on March 29, 1991, in Jacksonville, Florida. Although she is an American citizen, the talented personality is half Filipino, part Irish, and part Polish (although she also called herself “a hint of insane” when asked about her nationality on Twitter). She attended a graphic design school when she was younger, but her interests always revolved around content creation and dance. Megan is quite attached to her Filipino roots and loves ethnic food, especially chicken Adobo, Pancit, and Lumpia. She always makes sure her Filipino fan base feels heard and acknowledged by her.
Megan Batoon’s Family
Megan was born to Hyderick Batoon (father) and Michele DePompeo (mother). According to reports, her grandfather, Nemeico Espiritu Batoon, was a Vietnam War veteran hailing from the Philippines. He entered the US Navy in the year 1955, and after serving twenty years, retired to settle in Atlantic Beach, Florida, where he reportedly served as a chef at the Ramada Inn, Holiday Inn, and the Mariott. Megan also has two siblings named Nicole and Armani, both hailing from the same lineage.

Michele’s mother attended Duncan U. Fletcher High School in Jacksonville, Megan’s birthplace. She then became a nanny and also worked at Beach Bound Photography. She seems to have been blessed with a loving family that persistently supports her. However, if reports are to be believed, her parents have gotten divorced, and her mother has probably remarried. Her father actively follows Megan on social media and is her biggest cheerleader.

After they split up in 2016, Megan began to keep her personal life out of public knowledge. Reports also suggest that she was dating content creator Andrew Siwicki at some point after her split from Ian. There were rumors of Megan being romantically involved with Filipino actor John Lloyd Cruz, but they remain mere speculations as the claims haven’t been substantiated. However, as of 2021, Megan is dating someone new, which she announced on social media around April 2021.
