31! I cannot believe it. Where did the time go? My birthdays used to be different in my 20s, and guess what? I like them better In my 30s now. Hanging out at home, going for a nice lunch, eating cake and watching American idol with my family is the biggest gift i can ask for. Thank you so much to all of you who have taken them time to wish me a happy birthday, via text, DM, phone call etc. I feel truly special. And to receive a phone call from my grandma and know I have her here one more bday just made me so happy. Thanks again to you all and Feliz cinco de Mayo
Zanella’s throwback pictures on Instagram show her childhood in Mexico. She grew close to her grandmother while being raised there alongside her younger brother, Steven Camberos Zanella.
After 10 years in Mexico, the family would return to the U.S. and settle in Southern California. Juan Camberos, who studied architecture at the University of Guadalajara, currently works at Windcell Corporation in California. Steven was a baseball player at the University of San Francisco.

Being your sister has been the coolest journey I could’ve embarked… I know when you came into my life when I was almost 6 I thought my throne was taken away from me, but I’m glad that we were able to sit in it together. Happy sibling day little brother @stevocamberos
Joanna embarked on her on-camera career as a 10-year-old, as soon as her family arrived in California.
Zanella Is a Model and Actress
From the time she was four years old, Zanella dreamed of becoming an actress. She got a head-start when she was 10 with the encouragement of her parents, and signed with an agency.
Within her first year, she did national commercials for Kraft, JcPenny, Nickelodeon, Wells Fargo Bank, and more. Her spokesmodel career for Umbrella Girls USA also took her all over the country.
During her modeling career, she dipped into the pageant world and won the title of Miss Mexico Fox Sports USA. It would also give way to her career as a Fox Sports anchor. And if her throwback Instagram posts are anything to go by, she covered UFC fights where a certain comedian used to be a fighter.
She would go on to act in Latin soap operas, winning the Voz Latina award in 2005 for her work. She has acted in Un dia en el banco, Reality Terror Night, Hold the Line, and Sleeping Dogs Lie. But her breakout role would come in 2012, when she snagged the part of Christina Salazar in Sin Vergüenza.
Zanella and Brendan Schaub Have Two Sons
It’s unclear when and how Zanella came to meet and date the former MMA fighter. After years together, they got engaged in 2017.
Before they’d walk down the aisle, they welcomed their first child together, a boy named Tiger, in February 2016. Their second son, Boston, was born on November 26, 2019.

My best friend, my everything. Thank you for helping me raise wonderful boys- you are the true definition of the best Grandmother and mom ❤️ @photosbymonika
In her many social media posts, Zanella has spoken about her difficult pregnancies, though she’s kept the details private. But it seems she got through it, especially with the help of her parents and Brendan. And the second time around, Tiger was an amazing cheerleader and older brother-to-be, too.
It’s not known if Zanella and Schaub have married. However, the model-actress refers to herself as Joanna Zanella-Schaub on Instagram, where her bio states “Married,” and she’s set her Facebook relationship status to “Married.” There’s no evidence of a wedding in pictures, but it seems they might have married on the down-low.
