blue ivy royal baby cousins Beyonce's daughter Blue Ivy and Kate Middleton's child will be cousins

It’s already well-known that Beyonce and Jay-Z‘s daughter, Blue Ivy, is hip-hop/pop royalty. But it turns out she’s actually going to have real royal connections. 

Once the royal baby is born — becoming the Prince or Princess of Cambridge — Blue Ivy will be the 23rd cousin twice removed from Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s child. The Daily Mail figured out — using — that the two children are connected via their shared French royal heritage. And if the royal baby ever needs advice on how to rock his or her crown, he/she can just turn to cousin Blue Ivy for advice: Beyonce recently posted this photo of Blue Ivy looking royal to her Tumblr.

However, Blue Ivy won’t be the most royally connected out of all the famous offspring of Hollywood. The royal baby will also be 11th cousins with the children of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, as well as 26th cousins with children of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, and will be distant cousins with Celine Dion‘s three children, Maggie Gyllenhaal‘s children, and Uma Thurman‘s children.

The royal baby has an expected due date of Saturday (July 13).
