Justin Bieber is Distant Cousins With What Celebrities?

by at . Comments

Justin Bieber is a distant cousin of several other celebs you are quite familiar with. Call it a Canadian dynasty of music (and a little acting) stardom.

According to Ancestry (dot) com, Biebs is related to ...

... Celine Dion, Ryan Gosling and Avril Lavigne! Wow!

We're talking 10th, 11th and 12th cousins, but still.

Researchers begun tracing Bieber's family lineage about a year ago by paging through teen celebrity gossip magazines to find biographical tidbits from the pop star.

"The great thing about family history is that you never know what you're going to find," said Ancestry's Michelle Ercanback. "It was a very pleasant surprise."

Bieber, Gosling and Lavigne share common relatives Mathurin Roy and Marguerite Bire, born in France in the early 1600s. They later moved to Quebec.

JB and Celine are 10th cousins three times removed because they're linked to French couple Jacques Vezina and Marie Boisdon, also from the 1600s.

They moved to Quebec, where they died in 1687. Ercanback said she didn't know if these celebrity links are "sufficient to point to the existence of a superstar gene."

Either way, it's pretty cool.
