Two of pop’s iconic characters may very well be related. Louise Veronica Ciccone and Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, better known to the world as pop phenomenons Madonna and Lady Gaga are reported to be ninth cousins once removed.

Celebrity Genealogist, Chris Child, decided to go digging and found that the queens of pop are descendants of a French immigrant couple who landed in Quebec in the 1600s.

Child’s said of his findings to the Boston Globe:

“When I saw that Lady Gaga had French Canadian ancestry I thought there might be something there”.

Gaga recently came under fire for her single “Born This Way” having strong similarities to Madonna’s huge hit, “Express Yourself”. Maybe this is why…it’s in the blood!

Wouldn’t you just give anything to be a fly on the wall at this pair’s holiday celebrations!
