Unexpectedly-related celebrities / radio DJs married to yer man from Editors

Found out from the HGATR: Prince thread a while back that Maya Rudolph is the daughter of Minnie Ripperton, and thought that was pretty cool. Just found out today that Kevin Love (Kevin Love - Wikipedia) is the nephew of Mike Love (the worst Beach Boy), and thought that was pretty cool, too. Would never have guessed.

So yeah, that, basically. Bonus points for both the famous people being a GBORelatives

In politics:

Shimon Peres and Lauren Bacall were cousins. As were Stanley Baldwin and Rudyard Kipling.

Didn’t realise the Lily/Alfie Allen connection for a long time, having missed her early hit ‘Alfie’

Gary Numan and larger Mo?


Descended from royalty, too!

Awesome. Just read up, and her real name is Maureen, so Big Mo is closer to her real name than her actual stage name. About which…

Laila’s stage name “Laila Morse” was suggested to her by Italian actress Isabella Rossellini, whilst dating her brother, actor Gary Oldman. “Laila Morse” is an anagram of “mia sorella” which is Italian for “my sister”.


Just remembered Norah Jones and Ravi Shankar, as well as Rashida and Quincy Jones.
