Justin Bieber has been making big announcements lately, both serious and playful, from wanting to set up an MMA themed fight with Tom Cruise, to candidly discussing his past drug abuse and his life as a child celebrity. Amongst the seriousness, he's also gotten playful in possibly the most Canadian way ever. Justin Bieber discovered and announced that he's related to Avril Lavigne and Ryan Gosling

In an Instagram photo of an Ancestry.com screenshot, a diagram shows Bieber's relation to the other two Canadian celebs. In his announcement he wrote, "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 ancestry.com." 

According to the website diagram, Justin Bieber is 12th cousins with Lavigne and 11th cousins with Gosling. While Bieber obviously posted the announcement as a joke it's still pretty amazing to think about how much talent came out of one lineage. 

The best part of the reveal may actually be the responses to his announcement. Lavigne herself responded with, "I’ll host Christmas dinner this year 🎅🏻 🎄 ⛄️🇨🇦."

Justin Bieber's controversial manager Scooter Braun even got in on the fun saying, "I always saw a strong resemblance 😄."

Ryan Gosling has yet to comment on his newfound relatives but it's possible he doesn't even know about the revelation yet, he's not on social media! 

I think we all know how happy Bieber must be to know he's related to one of his heroes. Just a few weeks ago he was begging for more Gosling on the big screen

I think the most amazing part of this is no one is questioning it, or classifying it as bizarre. It's just another thing that makes Canada so unique!
