Justin Bieber and Ryan Gosling are both Ã¼ber famous mega stars with huge fan bases comprised of mostly female fans. But the two superstars have something else in common. They’re related! A recent genealogical study revealed that the Teen Dream and the Drive star are cousins.
The genealogists at the highly advertised website, Ancestry.com have unearthed “a fascinating new celebrity gene pool.” And it looks like Selena Gomez’s “boyfriend” and fellow Canadian, Gosling are “11th cousins…once removed through their ancestors Mathurin Roy and Marguerite Bire.” Apparently, Ancestry.com had to go back some 400 years to find Biebs’ and Gosling’s more than 6 degrees of separation connection.
Interestingly, Justin Bieber is related to a couple of other famous Canadians as well. He and Celine Dion are “10th cousins three times removed, linked through Jacques Vezina and his wife Marie Boisdon, French emigrants who died in Quebec, Canada in 1687.”
As if all that’s not enough, the JB is also related to Avril Lavigne. They’re 12th cousins linked though the same French couple.
So there you have it. Wouldn’t you love to be at that family reunion?
