Personal Life
Makenzie Jade Vega was born on February 10, 1994 in Los Angeles, California to Baruch Vega, a former photographer, and Gina Rue, a former Miami model. She is half-Colombian from her father’s side.

Relationships
Makenzie Vega was in a relationship with American actor and singer Logan Henderson, who is a former band-mate of her sister Alexa's husband Carlos Pena from the Big Time Rush band. The two reportedly started dating back in October 2014 when they were first seen together shopping at one of the local markets in Studio City, California. They subsequently began appearing together at various awards shows and events, including the 2015 Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party in Los Angeles. In September 2015, they were seen cheering for Alexa and Carlos PenaVega from the audience during their performance against each other on 'Dancing with the Stars'. The next month, after it was announced that she would not be a regular cast on the final season of ‘The Good Wife’, rumors spread that the two were planning to get married. However, sources close to them refuted the rumors saying they were still too young to get married. They broke up in July of the following year.
Soon after her 23rd birthday in February 2017, she announced her marriage to Australian fashion model Blair Norfolk at a private ceremony on a beach over the ‘Super Bowl’ weekend. She shared his picture on Instagram captioning it “This is My Husband”, while her husband shared another image of them showing their wedding rings. Taking cue from her older sister Alexa, who and her husband had legally taken the joint surname ‘PenaVega’ following marriage, she and her husband changed their Instagram surname to ‘Vega Norfolk’.
