“IĀ also just found out that Iā€™m related to both Ryan gosling and Avril Lavigne this is the best day of my life.. it seems super legit itā€™s on ancestry.com,” reads the singer’s Instagram post.

The family tree has a few deep branches, suggesting that Lavigne could be Bieber’s 12th cousin and Gosling could be his 11th cousin, once removed.

Lavigne reacted to the post by commenting, “Iā€™ll host Christmas dinner this year” and Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, quipped ”Ā I always saw a strong resemblance.”

No word yet on whether or not Ancestry.com’sĀ genealogical traces are strong enough to prove if Bieber was ever a “Skater Boy.”
