And the answer is…so TRUE!

The revelation that the A-list married couple of 23 years are distant cousins (let’s stress distant) comes via PBS’s show “Finding Your Roots,” reports People.

Host Henry Louis Gates Jr. confirmed that Kev and Kyra “are indeed distant cousins. So talk about six degrees of separation, right?”

He adds: “I want … Americans [to] realize how united we are as a people. …There’s so much animosity…and one of the things that I want the series to do is to show that, deep down, we are all Americans. We’ve been sleeping together from the very beginning of the country.”

A united reaction of Aww and Eww seems about appropriate right now.

“Finding Your Roots” airs Sundays at 8/7c on PBS.
