Dasany Kristal’s mother is a popular Dominican actress Dascha Polanco. Dascha was born to her parents, Ruben Dario Polanco and Janet Polanco, on December 3, 1982. She lost her mother when she was young and was consequently raised by her father, who made a living as a mechanic.
Polanco started her acting career in 2013 when she made her first big screen appearance in the movie GIMME SHELTER. Her journey to stardom, however, started in 2015 when she was featured in the indie dark comedy iCreep and also starred alongside Adam Sandler in Tom McCarthy’s The Cobbler.

Dascha Polanco Had Her First Child at 17
In 1999, Dasch had her first child when she was just 17. Because she was raised in a thorough Christian family, she said that having a child outside wedlock was a tough experience for her because her family and friends were all disappointed in her and considered her the black sheep of the family.
However, she was determined to raise her daughter against all odds, even though her baby daddy was not in the picture. She later had her second child, a son named Aryam. For Dasch Polanco, motherhood has been a wholesome experience with her two kids, although she had to do the work all by herself. She is very proud of her kids and of how well they have both turned. She does not hesitate to post beautiful pictures of them together at different events on her Instagram account.
Dasch was recently hit by grief following the death of her boyfriend Xtassy. On February 5, 2022, the Orange is the New Black star took to her Instagram to break the distressing news and thank everyone who had been reaching out to her since the unfortunate event.
