1-We're just distantly relatives
2-We're closely relatives. この表現は自然ですか?
A: Distant
"Distantly" is not a word.
"We're just distant relatives." - would be correct.
"We're distant relatives." - the "just" can be omitted, unless you're really trying the stress an unimportance of your relation to the other person because of how distant it is.

"We're close relatives." - though this could also imply relational closeness, instead of genealogical closeness.
"We're closely related."
"We're related." - the close could be omitted unless you are trying to stress the closeness of your relation

"We're immediate family." - typically just spouse and children (for insurance purposes), but otherwise includes parents (the children's grandparents).
