Your family history can always be a little bit strange, but we're still wrapping our heads around this news.
Justin Bieber, Ryan Gosling and Avril Lavigne are all related. No, that wasn't a typo. The researchers at ancestry.com confirmed that Biebs is cousins with both Ryan and Avril. While they are far from immediate family, they're still related in a very distant way. This officially might be the most talented family in the entertainment business!
Biebs and Ryan are 11th cousins once removed, while Justin and Avril are 12th cousins through a common relative. And in even stranger news, he's also related to Celine Dion! The connection between Ryan, Justin and Avril dates back to 400 years ago among settlers in Quebec.
"Discoveries like this are rare, so the fact that some of Canada's top entertainment industry stars are all related is especially fascinating," says genealogist Lesley Anderson. Oh, what we wouldn't give to be a fly on the wall at that family dinner...
