Is Justin Bieber related to Avril Lavigne and Ryan Gosling? According to the pop star’s report, that may be true! Justin, 25, took to Instagram on Saturday, August 31, to share the results of his family tree, which apparently revealed that he is distant cousins with his fellow Candian celebs.

“I also just found out that I’m related to both Ryan Gosling and Avril Lavigne. This is the best day of my life … it seems super legit, it’s on,” Justin wrote in the caption of a screenshot of his family tree. According to the “I Don’t Care” singer’s genealogy chart, actor Ryan is his 11th cousin two times removed, and singer Avril is his 12th cousin.

Fans took to the comments to reveal how they feel about learning this piece of information. “Not even lying all three of you kind of look alike even if you are distant relatives,” one fan wrote, and another commented, “Talent runs in the family I guess.”

It’s nice to see that Justin is having a little fun on social media and keeping himself busy, especially after the “What Do You Mean?” singer recently opened up about his struggle with a difficult time in his life.

“Sang at church last night. God is pulling me through a hard season. Having trust in Jesus at your worst times is the absolute hardest. But he is faithful to complete what he started,” Justin wrote on Instagram on Friday, August 30. “I also want to thank my wife for being such a huge support in my life through this season … it says in the bible count it ALL JOY when you face trials of various kinds. Sounds insane considering when u face trials u feel terrible. But if we are grateful and worship god for what we do have in that season there is so much power in that … whatever pain you are going through just keep telling yourself THIS WON’T LAST! Love you guys we in this together.”
