Jimmy Kimmel and Martha Stewart have more in common than just both being well-known figures in Hollywood. If you can believe it, the two are actually distantly related! Kimmel discovered the connection during a 2019 appearance on the PBS show “Finding Your Roots.” In the episode, Kimmel sat down with host Henry Louis Gates Jr., and Gates asked Kimmel to guess to whom he’s related. At first, he jokingly wondered if it was Hitler, but once the late-night host flipped a page to reveal a cousin, he saw Stewart’s photo. “You gotta be kidding me!” he exclaimed with a surprised look on his face. The star also pointed out one similarity he has to the DIY guru — his ability to make his own vinegar. “Well, this is great news for the holidays. I mean, it’s very bad news for her, but it’s very good news for me,” the father of two added before he cracked another joke. “Bad news Martha, you’re a Kimmel!”
It didn’t take too long for Kimmel to reveal the news to Stewart during an appearance on “Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner.” On the show, he chatted with his distant cousin, and she seemed pretty pleased about the connection. “It’s a pleasure being related to you,” she told him before he cracked another joke. “Yes, I would love to see what our connection is, if I could get a urine sample.” Gotta love these fun cuzzos!
