It's not every day that you get a new sister, especially when that sister is Beyonce. But that was how actress Bianca Lawson's weekend went. Her dad, actor Richard Lawson, married Beyonce's mom Tina.

So, yes, now Beyonce will conceivably be enjoying the holidays with Nikki from Save the Last Dance. Score!

The gals became sisters by marriage when their parents tied the knot Sunday aboard a yacht in California. So far, it's unclear if Bianca attended the nuptials, but we know Bey, Jay Z, and Blue Ivy were all there.

Bey posted a pic of the newlyweds on her website Monday.

    She went to high school with Kim Kardashian.

    Both gals went to Marymount High School in Los Angeles (as did many Hollywood types). The gals were likely there at the same time, since they're only two years apart.
