Sabrina Carpenter fans have known for years that she’s not the only famous person in her family: Her aunt is Nancy Cartwright, the voice actress who does the voice of Bart Simpson, among many other characters. But for some fans, this information comes as a big surprise.

Cartwright posted a TikTok of herself answering the fan question, “Is Sabrina Carpenter your niece?”  “Yeah, absolutely,” she responded.

She commented, “Isn’t that amazing, when you find out that somebody that — maybe you’ve known me for a little while doing this little 10-year-old boy for like 35-some years, and some of you guys for, like, way less than that — find out that I’m related to this, like, superstar?”

“She’s pretty amazing,” Cartwright concluded.

While some fans in the comments invoked the dreaded “Nepo Baby” phrase, others were delighted, with one asking, “Can we hear Bart sing espresso?! PLEASEEEEE.”  Several others begged for Sabrina to appear on The Simpsons. 

Another wrote, “Why does Sabrina being related to Bart Simpson makes so much sense??? it really is a family attitude.”
