If Chavril has a baby, it will have Bieber blood.

Three of Canada's biggest superstars may be distant cousins, a new report suggests.

Pop stars Justin Bieber and Avril Lavigne, as well as actor and beloved Internet heartthrob Ryan Gosling, are distantly related, according to Ancestry.ca.

"Discoveries like this are rare, so the fact that some of Canada's top entertainment industry stars are all related is especially fascinating," Lesley Anderson, a genealogist for Ancestry.ca, said in a press release.

"There's something special about discovering a shared connection, and to be able to go so far back in history to do so is one of the most satisfying aspects of family history research."

The Cancon trio reportedly share a common ancestry that goes back 400 years to some of Quebec's earliest settlers.

Bieber and Gosling are 11th cousins once removed, while Bieber and Lavigne are 12th cousins, the site's family researchers found.

The Biebs is connected to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger's fiancee through a couple named Mathurin Roy and Marguerite Bire, who were both born in France in the early 1600s and later migrated to Quebec.

Bieber is also related to French-Canadian pop queen Celine Dion. The two crooners are 10th cousins three times removed through Jacques Vezina and Marie Boisdon, who also immigrated to Quebec from France in the 1600s.
