She was born on October 22, 1998 and is part Portuguese, Russian, German, and Canadian, per her YouTube Q&A video.

She documented the whole experience via Instagram, which included videos of her and Sprouse flying in a helicopter.

Silva's photoshoot with Sprouse was just one of many gigs she's landed over the course of her modeling career, which has included trips overseas to China and Australia. In her YouTube video, she opened up about the pressures of being a model and some of the misconceptions about the job. She explained that many believe all models are confident, but that's not the truth. "You're constantly being compared to other girls, all these expectations," she said before revealing she overcame an eating disorder over the past year. "It really does play a big part on your self-esteem and your self-confidence."

Reina Silva struggled with an eating disorder

During a candid YouTube Q&A video, Reina Silva opened up about overcoming an eating disorder after becoming a model. Silva explained that before going into modeling, she had no idea what she was getting herself into. "I was just a kid. I had so much confidence and I was always so happy. Ever since I got into it, it just went downhill from here," Silva said, adding that the industry has "definitely" affected her self-confidence. "I honestly struggled this past year," Silva said. 

"I'm finally better now. Everything's okay," she confirmed, but, "I just felt so tired all the time, just not myself," she said. Silva revealed that her family and friends' support helped her overcome it and that she's now comfortable talking about this difficult time in her life. "If people around you are telling you that there's something not right and that you need to make a change to better yourself, just trust them," the model said. "I know it's not going to be easy at the beginning, but trust them because they just want what's best for you."

These days, it seems Silva has turned a new page, focusing on staying healthy and maybe dating a former Disney Channel star.
