Celebrity Couple Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon Are Related
While on The Late Show David Letterman earlier this week, actress Kyra Sedgwick revealed that she and her husband, actor Kevin Bacon, are 10th cousins once removed.
Sedgwick told Letterman on his show about the anxiety that she had initially felt over finding out that she and her husband were related.
Sedgwick found out about this connection while appearing on the PBS’s “Faces of America”, a show that traces back the genealogy and family trees of famous Americans. Not only did the Hollywood actress discover that she and her husband were related, but also that she has family ties with former celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe and President Jimmy Carter.
