Grace Blake Hummel was born June 12th and is the eldest of the Hummel siblings. During her teen years, she had a hookup with Jo's brother-in-law Galen and conceived a child with him shortly after they broke up. She gave up the baby-a son-to a wealthy Texan couple. At some point in her life, she married Tommy Cunnings during her early years working at Cosmo Magazine and the couple had four children: two sons and two daughters. They later divorced when her husband ran off with their teenage babysitter, Jo-Jo Bernhardt.
Grace is produced with a tan skin tone to illustrate her Hispanic and Pakistani heritage. She usually dresses in bold print clothes and wears peeptoes that are usually black, floral print or animal print.
