Jane the Virgin

Jane the Virgin

All the years of watching telenovelas with the two women who raised her - her sexy, young-at-heart mother, Xiomara (known as "Xo"), and her still - devout grandmother, Alba - have given Jane a slightly unrealistic view of romance. Although she is determined not to make the same mistake Xo made - becoming an unwed mother at 16 Jane could not be closer to the two wonderful women who have shaped her life. They are very different people - Xo lives her life as a perpetual teenager, performing at local clubs and always looking for a new man, while Alba makes religion and prayer the focus of her life - but both women consider Jane the center of their universe and love the grounded, compassionate and ambitious young woman she has become.
