Blake Lively's family is already pretty awesome, but the actress' family tree just got a little more attention after it was discovered that the mom of two is related to actor Bart Johnson, who portrayed Coach Bolton in the High School Musical films.

Eagle-eyed fans first made the connection when Johnson shared an Instagram photo of his son, Baylen, with Blake Lively on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The hashtag #coolaunt only furthered the confusion, until fans figured out that Johnson is married to Robyn Lively, who is Blake's older sister.

In fact, Johnson gets recognized for the role so often that he even made a note in his Instagram bio, which reads, "Yes, I play "coach Bolton" in the HSM movies," although he notes that he is currently starring on Amazon's Gortimer Gibbons.

Johnson and Blake recently caught up at Blake's husband Ryan Reynolds' Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony, with the actor calling his sister-in-law "my sister and bestest friend."

With my sister and bestest friend @blakelively at the Hollywood Walk Of Fame for an EPIC honoring of the hard work and dedication, vision, tenacity and success of a truly great man Mr. Ryan Reynolds @vancityreynolds who will forever be immortalized on Hollywood Blvd with official icon status. I think most young actors that comes to Hollywood with nothing but a dream and a few pennies in their pocket, seem to makes their way to this historic landmark and marvels at the legends that have come before them. Ryan, today you are one of the legends and forever recognized at this historic landmark. And that's dang cool! Congrats bro. You deserve this. #legend #deadpool #mybrotherinlawiscoolerthanyourbroyehrinlaw #littlesisterlegittoo
