On Tuesday, August 9, McElhenney was joined on the talk show by his wife and fellow Always Sunny cast member, Kaitlin Olson.

Following her appearance, Kaitlin Olson’s last name also seems to have garnered attention as some have questioned whether she is related to the Olsen twins.

We investigate the actress’ relationship to the former child stars, the twins.

Is Kaitlin Olson related to the Olsen twins?

No, despite the fact that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and the actress from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia have surnames that sound similar to each other, Kaitlin Olson and the Olsen twins are not related.

If you hadn’t already noticed, the Full House alum’s last name ends in “sen,” whereas Kaitlin’s ends in “son.”

Elizabeth, their younger sister, who Marvel fans will recognize for her role as Wanda Maximoff throughout the franchise, and Mary-Kate and Ashley were born to parents David Olsen and Jarnette.

Mаry-Kаte аnd Ashley аre аlso relаted to their older brother Trent through their fаther’s second mаrriаge, аs well аs to their hаlf-sister Courtney аnd hаlf-brother Jаke.
