Kate Middleton's Baby's Insane Family Tree: Beyonce, Angelina Jolie, Uma Thurman
Kate Middleton and Prince William's unborn baby already has star power. Apparently, the royal baby is related to Blue Ivy Carter the daughter of Beyonce and Jay-Z, due to their shared French heritage, according to Find My Past, an online genealogy resource.
If that's not A-list enough, the baby, currently dubbed HRH Prince or Princess, will also be the 27th cousin to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's six children, the 26th cousin (thrice removed) from Celine Dion's three kids, the 11th cousin to Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner's three off-spring, the 20th cousin (twice removed) to Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard's two daughters, and the 22nd cousin to Uma Thurman's three tykes.
"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," Find My Past rep Debra Chatfield told the Daily Mail. "The closest relation we found to the Hollywood children was the late Princess Diana. [Her] ancestry includes a number of early settlers on the east coast of the USA that can be traced right up to the modern family."
The news of the royal baby's red carpet roots come on the heels of reports that Kate Middleton, known for her humble background (coal miners, a road sweeper and even a prisoner are among her ancestors), actually has blue blood, having been descended from wealthy merchants and nobility. Middleton's family tree was uncovered in April by Australian history teacher Michael Reed who assigned his students a class project on genealogy.
Between Hollywood and the royal throne, this kid is ready for his close-up.
