Jarah Mariano Family
Jarah Mariano was reportedly born to her family as Jarah-Evelyn Makalapua Mariano. Her dad is likely named Robert Mariano and her mom is named Renee Danok Loo.
During Asian Pacific American Heritage Month in 2021, Marian gushed about her heritage.
“I couldn’t be more proud to represent my community, I always get asked ‘Where are you from?’ or ‘What are you?’. I explain how I was born in Hawai’i, but also grew up in California.” She added further, “My mom is of Korean descent, but born & raised in Hawai’i. My father’s from Hawai’i as well, his mother is Native Hawaiian & we don’t know who his father is. He was adopted by the Mariano family, which is where my last name comes from.”
Jarah moved to New York City and enrolled at Pace University, where she eventually graduated with a degree in Speech Communications with a Media Studies specialization.
By trade, Jarah is a model that has been featured in multiple Victoria’s Secret catalogs as well as ads for MAC, Abercrombie & Fitch, Armani Exchange, and other brands. She has also modeled for Sports Illustrated, where she debuted in the Swimsuit Issue in 2008.

Milo Ventimiglia and Jarah wedded earlier in 2023 in a private ceremony attended only by close family and friends, according to Us Weekly. The magazine was able to secure images of the couple wearing matching white clothes and leis.
When the Instagram account Deuxmoi initially made their relationship public in 2022, fans were first made aware of Ventimiglia’s connection with Mariano. Deuxmoi posted a picture of Ventimiglia and Mariano together on their Instagram Story in response to a follower who inquired about Ventimiglia’s romantic partner. The couple wearing swimsuits appeared to be opening a bottle of champagne together and grinning at each other in the photo, which was initially shared by @johannacyn.
The post said, “Welcome to the hood @jaharm + mi,” implying that the couple had relocated to a new area. After Ventimiglia was spotted in pictures acquired by TMZ sporting a wedding band on his ring finger, the couple later gave rise to rumors of a marriage in October 2023.

Memories pics notes and anecdotes that iPhone and its cloud will never amount to. This is our old home in Kapa’a Kauai where my mom buried my piko (Hawaiian for navel/umbilical cord) from birth under the tree, forever connecting me to this majestic place.
