Funny obviously runs in the family.

We bet you didn’t know Mike & Molly star Melissa McCarthy, the talk of the country Monday after her emotional win at the Emmys, is related to none other than stunner Jenny McCarthy.

“Congrats to my cousin melissa mccarthy on her Emmy win!!” the Playboy Playmate tweeted after her cousin’s heart-wrenching victory.

Melissa, 41, was born in Plainfield, Illinois, while younger cousin Jenny, 38, grew about about 40 miles away on the southside of Chicago.

Jenny also gave her cousin a break in 1997, giving the then-unknown comic an appearance on her self-titled MTV show.
