This has actually blown our minds.

After Justin Bieber started fan-girling over Ryan Gosling on Instagram heaps yesterday, there has been some news that may shock you like it did us.

Justin started posting photos of Ryan with the caption ”what a beast” over and over, yesterday for no apparent reason, or is there?

We are not sure if Bieber is aware of the distant cousin but what we do know.. is that he is in complete awe of his new cousin.
