Nancy Cartwright, a longtime voice actress on The Simpsons, is indeed related to pop star Sabrina Carpenter.

Cartwright excitedly answered a fan question about their connection. “Yeah! Absolutely!” she replied.

“Isn’t that amazing?" she began. "Maybe you’ve known me for a little while, doing this little 10-year-old boy for 35 some years — and some of you guys for way less than that — and find out that I’m related to this superstar.”

“She’s pretty amazing,” concluded Cartwright.

“The rumors are true! Sabrina Carpenter is my niece! 🥰,” read her TikTok video caption.

Several fans of the two shared the surprise in Cartwright's comment section. "But why does Sabrina being related to Bart Simpson makes so much sense??? it really is a family attitude 🤣🥰🤣," wrote one user.
