Not impressed yet? This is where it gets really nuts – the royal baby is also said to be the 27th cousin to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s six kids! Alas, you’re STILL not impressed? Jeesh. Okay, there’s more. Other celebu-offspring who are said to be related to the future heir to the throne are Celine Dion’s three children, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s kids, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard’s wee ones, and Uma Thurman’s children.
We’ll give you a second to pick up your brains that have likely just exploded all over the floor. According to the article on E!, family historian at findmypast.co.uk Debra Chatfield has said, “It's long been said that the USA and UK have a special relationship, and that is certainly the case between Hollywood's elite and the Royal Family. That's the understatement of the year!
As if we needed another reason to want to be a celebrity. While we’re not sure if the other celebu-kids are royally spoiled, we do know that Blue Ivy can give the heir a run for his money. Baby de Beyonce was given a $600K solid gold rocking horse. Top that, royal baby!
