This Celebrity Married His Cousin!
Kyra Sedgwick probably never thought the common game of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon would apply to her. She has been married to Bacon for 23 years and has 2 children with him, Travis and Sosie.
Finding Your Roots, a genealogy show on PBS revealed the couple are actually distant cousins. Harvard Scholar, Henry Louis Gates Jr., hosts the show and confirms they “are indeed distant cousins.”
This proves just how connected we all are and Gates thinks that’s a great thing saying, "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."
