Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick are cousins!

No need for "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" for this one: It's been revealed that husband and wife duo Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon have a bond that goes beyond husband and wife!

PBS's "Finding Your Roots," hosted by Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr., investigates famous Americans' genealogies, climbing their family trees to uncover surprising and sometimes shocking tidbits about their ancestry. According to Bacon and Sedgwick were guests on the show when it was revealed that the couple, married for 23 years and with two children, are in fact, distant cousins.

The couple took the information in stride, with Bacon tweeting, "Watch @FindingYourRoots Sunday 8PM #PBS me and @kyrasedgwick looking at our family history. And great Music by #MichaelBacon!"
