Gabrielle Union and Rapper Saweetie Are Cousins

Beauty, brains, and talent run in the family! Actress Gabrielle Union has been having tons of family time as a new mommy to she and her husband Dwyane Wade‘s baby girl, Kaavia.

Speaking of family, Gabrielle’s #WomanCrushWednesday post revealed an icy member of her family. Her caption reads:


“Today’s #WCW is @kehlani. This Bay Area force of nature creates music that heals AND bops. She is an original that hasn’t lost her soul. Maybe it’s because she reminds me of my homegirl @mrsmiawright (both rep Cali to the socks), or that she collabs with other great talent like my little cousin @saweetie… or maybe it’s watching her on her journey to motherhood that has me rooting so hard for her, but I really respect and like her. Seeing her smile literally changes the trajectory of my day. She is truly a light in dark times. Please let us all lift her and her family up in the light of goodness and hold her there.”


Did you catch that? Gabrielle Union and rapper Saweetie are cousins! But Twitter user, @brazyyyjojo, needed confirmation. She asked Gabrielle:


“Wait, so you & @Saweetie are cousins? Frfr.”


She replied:


“Yup. Her father and I are 1st cousins. Her grandma is my aunt Joanne Glass who I based Eva from “Deliver Us From Eva” on. #FunFact #DozensOfCousins”


Saweetie’s Grandma Joanne must be one tough cookie! Check out Gabrielle’s Joanne impression in the “Deliver Us From Eva” trailer.
