Andrea Salinas was born on April 18, 1993 in Texas. She has an older identical twin sister named Amanda who was born on the same day, two minutes before her. Both Andrea and her sister have Achondroplasia dwarfism. Before she and her sister were on Little Women: Atlanta, they were club dancers, and
performed together as the "Tiny Twinz", and became like legends within the little person performer community. They moved to Atlanta for more opportunities to perform at clubs. In season 3 of Little Women: Atlanta, Andrea and her sister decided to quit club dancing, and do things such as club promoting and hosting.
In 2016, Andrea and her sister were guests on The Rickey Smiley Morning Show, a syndicated radio show that is co-hosted by their fellow Little Women: Atlanta cast member Shirlene "Ms.Juicy" King Pearson.
Behind the Scenes
Andrea has a boyfriend named Chris Fernandez. They have been in an on and off relationship for over 5 years. They have three children together: André (5 years old), Aubrey (1 year old), and Anaya (5 mos.). All three of their children have
Achondroplasia Dwarfism. When their son André was born he was very sick, and almost died. He was diagnosed with Lung Disease. Thankfully, he pulled through his illness. He lives in Texas with his maternal grandparents Janie and Oscar so that he can stay close to his doctors. They adopted him, but Andrea does plan on having André move in with her, Chris, and her daughters after he gets his health together.
Salinas has one other sister and an older brother--who are both average-sized. She has at least one niece, who is the offspring of either her other sister or brother.
- Andrea and her boyfriend have a dog named blaze, and a chameleon named Pee-Wee.
- After giving birth to her third child (Anaya), Salinas got her tubes tied, which means she won't be having any more children.
