    born TO/ OF parents

    Hello,

    A question to native English speakers:

    Is 'born OF parents' as in 'I was born in England of both Polish parents' more common or equally common as 'born TO parents'?

    It would be much more natural to say "I was born in England but both my parents are Polish". You could say "I was born in England to Polish parents".
