The Emmy winner surprised fans on social media by revealing that she has a famous niece, saying, “Yeah! Absolutely!” when someone asked if she was related to the Espresso hitmaker.

“Isn’t that amazing?” she said. “Maybe you’ve known me for a little while, doing this little 10-year-old boy for 35 some years – and some of you guys for way less than that – and find out that I’m related to this superstar. She’s pretty amazing.”

Posting a video on Instagram, TikTok and X, in which she answers the fan question, she wrote: “The rumours are true! Sabrina Carpenter is my niece!”

Fans are having a cow at the news, and have taken to social media to exclaim their excitement.

Someone else said: “Mind is blown,” and another wrote: “Wait what??”

Another added: “Imagine being able to say your auntie is Bart Simpson 🔥”
