With two adorable little girls, James and Ines, a husband who praises his wife's empathy and gushes about his 'idiotic Hallmark-card cliche' love for his 29-year-old wife, it would be safe to say Blake Lively has one of the best families in Hollywood.

However, little did we know the former Gossip Girl actress has a family connection to Disney which is now making all our childhood dreams comes true.

According to Teen Vogue, the actress is related to Bart Johnson.

Doesn't ring any bells? How about if we say the name Coach Bolton?

That's right, Lively is sister-in-law to Johnson, who plays Zac Efron's pushy father in the hit Disney Channel franchise and is married to Lively's older sister, Robyn, in real life.

I mean, who can forget that floppy hair do?

Blake is also auntie to Robyn and Bart's three children, Kate, Baylen, and Wyatt.

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants star and her brother-in-law recently caught up at Ryan Reynolds' Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony, where Bart referred to his wife's sister as "my sister and bestest friend" and praised her husband's "hard work and dedication, vision tenacity and success'"on Instagram.

We have so much love for this family right now.
