BRITNEY Spears has a new relative, and it's someone she's called a friend for years.
According to Ancestry.com, Britney is related to NSYNC member Lance Bass.
During an episode of its web series “2 Lies & A Leaf,” the genealogy company revealed to Lance that he and the Toxic singer are indeed relatives…though, they are distant one.
Britney, 39, is the boy band singer's sixth cousin once removed.
Lance, 42, learned the startling fact when he played a game on the web series quizzing him about his family history.
After hearing the news, the Bye Bye Bye singer shared his joy: "That is so crazy though because I feel like she’s my little sister, and this whole time, she’s been my little cousin."
Lance and Britney were both born in Mississippi, about an hour apart from each other.
Brit even served as the opening act for NSYNC when they toured in 1998.
The new father confessed the revelation makes perfect sense to him: “For some reason, I always felt like we looked like family, even when we were kids.
"I mean this means so much to me. I mean, one: she is, she is like family to me, so the fact that we’re like blood-related is amazing."
BRITNEY'S BIG WEEK
The exciting news comes during a crucial week for Britney.
Her upcoming legal hearing on Friday could mark the end of her years-long conservatorship.
Late Monday night, the If U Seek Amy singer shared an optimistic message to Instagram: "This week is gonna be very interesting for me!!!
"I haven’t prayed for something more in my life!!! I know I’ve said some things on my Insta out of anger and I’m sorry but I’m only human … and I believe you’d feel the same way if you were me!!!
"Anyway it’s a new day and I can’t say I’m never going to complain again … cuz who knows!!! God bless you all and have a great day."
LANCE'S NEW ADDITIONS
Her new cousin Lance is also in a positive mood, as he and his husband Michael Turchin welcomed twins in October.
Lance shared the news on Instagram, introducing the world to his new boy and girl named Alexander James and Violet Betty.
Alongside photos of the birth certificates, Lance wrote: "The baby dragons have arrived!! I can not express how much love I feel right now.
"Thank you for all the kind wishes. It meant a lot. Now, how do you change a diaper??! Ahhhhhhhh!"
Violet was born at 17.5 inches long and weighed 4 lbs., 11 oz..
Meanwhile, Alexander was born at 18.5 inches long and 4 lbs., 14 oz.
He was born one minute before his twin sister, who arrived at 1:24 p.m. on Wednesday.
