6 Pairs of Female Celebrities That are Actually Related Through Marriage
To have one talented celebrity in your family is pretty cool. To have multiple? That’s freakin’ AWESOME. Like… talk about winning the genetic lottery (even if the bloodlines are fairly distant). Melissa & Jenny McCarthy are cousins, Brad Pitt & Barack Obama are reportedly ninth cousins, Ryan Gosling & Justin Bieber are, like… 11th cousins, once removed. Distant, yes… but still incredibly interesting.
And it’s not even always the bloodlines. Sometimes, talented
and/or rich AF humans marry into other talented and/or rich AF families, making a whole bunch of other talented and/or rich AF people relatives, too. Here are six such instances; pairs of female celebrities that are actually related through marriage:
Kendall Jenner & Gigi Hadid
Did you know that the supermodel besties are also distant, uhh... well, distant relatives of some sort?
"My mom married David [Foster], who was married to Linda Jenner [now, Thompson], who was Bruce Jenner's ex-wife [now Caitlyn Jenner]," Gigi told Vanity Fair. "We're related through divorced marriages."
Understand? Gigi's now-ex-stepfather was married to Kendall's dad's ex-wife. Technically, Brody & Brandon Jenner are a little closer in relation either, since Linda's their mother... but that still doesn't make them very close in relation. Like... the elder Jenners have the same former stepdad as the Hadids.
This tangled web means that Kylie Jenner, Bella Hadid and the rest of the two clans are distant relatives, too.
