With all of the celebrity weddings, it’s easy to forget which stars are related. Did you know that these famous pairs are in-laws?

Cameron Diaz & Nicole Richie

Cameron Diaz and Nicole Richie became sisters-in-law when Diaz married Benji Madden, brother of Richie’s husband, Joel Madden. And not only are they close, now they’re neighbors. Richie recently bought a $6.7 million mansion in the same neighborhood as her sister-in-law so that the two families can be closer.

Jake Gyllenhaal & Peter Sarsgaard

These two actors starred in Jarhead together, and they’re related in real life. Jake Gyllenhaal’s sister, Maggie, married Peter in 2009, making these two brothers-in-law.

Daisy Lowe & Gwen Stefani

This relationship came as a complete surprise in 2004. That’s when model Daisy Lowe discovered that Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale was her father (and Gwen Stefani’s husband — at least until they officially declare their divorce).

Jessica Capshaw & Steven Spielberg

Jessica Capshaw isn’t only famous for her role as Dr. Arizona Robbins on Grey’s Anatomy. She’s also Steven Spielberg’s stepdaughter!

Diana Ross & Ashlee Simpson

What’s it like having Diana Ross as a mother-in-law? Apparently it’s amazing. Ross reportedly dotes on daughter-in-law Ashlee Simpson and even officiated the ceremony when the pop star married her son.

Jenny McCarthy & Mark Wahlberg

It’s easy to forget that these two celebrities are in-laws since you almost never see them photographed together. Mark Wahlberg reportedly can’t stand his brother Donnie’s wife. The blood is so bad that Mark skipped their wedding!

Ime Udoka & Sommore

Now that Nia Long is headed down the aisle, her fiancé, Ime Udoka, and her half-sister, Sommore, are going to be in-laws. That’s going to make for some entertaining family dinners!

Kelly Clarkson & Reba McIntire

The singers became related by law when Kelly Clarkson married Reba McIntire’s stepson in 2014. But you won’t find any classic in-law tension here. Reba McIntire said that Kelly Clarkson is “like a little sister to me” and that Clarkson fits in with the family “terrifically.”

Zoe Kravitz & Jason Momoa

This stepfather-stepdaughter pair is a good-looking one. You’d think having a hunky stepdad who’s only 10 years your senior might be awkward, but this blended family seems to make it work!

Casey Affleck & Joaquin Phoenix

It’s no coincidence that these two pranksters worked together for the I’m Still Here documentary. They’re actually in-laws. In 2006, Affleck married Phoenix’s youngest sister, Summer.

Jessica Simpson & Tracee Ellis Ross

Ashlee Simpson’s marriage to Evan Ross was no secret, but we forgot that it made these two gorgeous ladies sisters-in-law until they posted this cute photo recently.
