Did you know that it’s National Siblings Day today!? It’s okay if you didn’t, we found out via social media actually…
You still have time today to show love to your brothers and sisters for being your first friends and road dawgs, even when you were squabbling with them over the years and trying to borrow their clothes. To help celebrate the day, we picked out 11 famous folks and the little-known brothers and sisters they’re close to (and look similar to). Don’t forget to show love to your siblings before the days is over!

Viola Davis And Deloris Grant


While Viola is an Academy Award nominated actress, sister Deloris is a teacher, but the two are close and work together to help young people reach success. Together, they started a scholarship program to help students in Rhode Island attend college. The two women come from a large family, as there were six Davis kids growing up together.


Alicia Keys And Cole Cook

In case you were wondering, Keys is Alicia’s stage name, but Augello-Cook is her last name. Cole is her half-brother, and the two have a pretty strong bond. He can be seen playing with her son, Egypt on Instagram, and has grown quite close to her husband, producer Swizz Beatz.


Omari Hardwick And Jamil Hardwick

Being fine runs in the family, right?  Younger brother Jamil is quite supportive of Omari, promoting his shows on social media and showing him love. But if you were trying to get into the family, sadly, it looks like cutie Jamil is off the market. Omari is still single though (last time I checked…)!


Nicki Minaj’s Brothers Jelani And Micaiah

Nicki loves her brothers so much, she name dropped them in her song, “I’m The Best”: “You could never understand why I grind like I do/Micaiah and Jelani why I grind like I do.”  

And did you check out the slamming 16th birthday party she threw Micaiah recently? She captioned this picture, from the party, with this about her siblings: “They can take it all. Just leave me with these two. Nothing else matters if u don’t have the ppl who hold your heart right by your side.” Best big sister ever!


Terrence Howard And Antonio Howard

These two could be twins, but Antonio is Terrence’s younger brother. He’s had some trouble with the law over the years, including that time he went to jail for threatening the police with his dog when they came to investigate a domestic disturbance at his home in 2011. Sadly, domestic drama seems to run in the family.



Penelope Cruz And Mónica Cruz

These ladies are so close, big sis Penelope even helps Monica make that money! The two worked together on a lingerie line and they also have done a collaboration with fashion brand Mango in the past. Monica, like her big sis, is also an actress and dancer.


Rihanna And Rajad

You’ve seen Rihanna’s mom, her dad, and probably even her brother Rorrey, but what do you know about her little brother Rajad? The 17-year-old and his pop star sister can often be seen being silly on the beach, out shopping together, or checking out NBA games courtside. Lucky guy!


Miley Cyrus And Noah Cyrus

Noah is of course the little sister of wild pop star Miley Cyrus, and if you check out her social media, you would see that the 14-year-old is probably going to be as wild and fun as her big sis. For example, check out the time she shaved her head and spray painting a diamond on it.


Brad Pitt And Doug Pitt

Doug became something of a star in his own right when he starred in those hilarious Virgin Mobile commercials a few years back. But he really is doing big things similar to his famous older brother, including being a Goodwill Ambassador, businessman and major philanthropist. Go head, Doug!


Michael B. Jordan And Jamila

Michael B. Jordan and his sister Jamila are so close, their relationship has inspired his dating life. He told Oprah during an interview for Oprah’s Next Chapter that he wouldn’t want to treat any woman he dates bad because he wouldn’t want a man to mistreat his own sister–it’s about karma:

“I have a sister. I never really wanted to do females wrong. Can’t act like that.”


Jhene Aiko, Jamila And Miyoko

Gorgeous gals, right? Jhene, in the middle, is the younger sister to Jamila (a singer known as Mila J), and Miyoko, who also have a love for music. Her older sisters were actually even in a music group called Gyrl back in the day. But as Jhene’s star rises, her older sisters have been a major support. Jamila says that people try to create sibling rivalry in the press, but there’s none of that in their family:

“I feel like our music is totally different. People are always going to create a sibling rivalry and there is none. Not at all.”

    Omari is married to a white lady. I have seen pics of them all over. He takes her to his movie premieres. He’s not trying to keep it a secret.

  • reality1

    I love to look into ppl eyes, so much u can see and nicky’s younger brother eyes melt my heart. He seems to have such kind eyes, seems to possess a gentle soul. I LOVE that, He seems to b a good kid.

    Alicia and Terrence’s brothers are FEO. Good Lord! Most of these entertainers/actors/singers don’t look like their siblings. So are we trying to make the siblings famous due to blood line or something?

    I don’t get it. Unless they have a talent or are working in entertainment there should be no write up on these people.

    • straight_up

      FEO? And Omari is married, just keeping it under wraps

      • PolkaDots

        UGLY – My bad.

    • alex

      Why are you being so rude…its not that deep…it was NATIONAL SIBLINGS DAY….thats the whole purpose of this article…no need to be rude and say ugly things about ppl who’ve done nothing to you….

      • PolkaDots

        There is NOTHING rude about what I said and I couldn’t care less than I ALREADY do about it being some IMAGINARY holiday that NO ONE RECOGNIZES….

        This isn’t about a fictitious holiday it’s about the media, YET AGAIN, attempting to make EVERYONE and ANYONE famous either because their alive and ridiculous OR are related to someone with talent.

        The latter doesn’t make you a celebrity and the former is just utterly RIDICULOUS.

        My opinion is just that and I stand by it.

        • alex

          I’m sorry but you sound so ignorant…MN Is not trying to make anyone famous but simply give you something interesting to read…your turning something so innocent into a something big…sibling day is not a holiday…but ppl DO use that day recognize their siblings… I don’t see how this article was written to make ppl famous….that’s all I’m saying…

          • PolkaDots

            Nawh, I’m not…This article is YET AGAIN trying to make famous NOBODIES….Don’t understand how? Look at SOLANGE…She’s TRYIN’ but no one really cares about her only the fact that she is DIM WIT’s sissy.

            And why do all you Black people use the same language – is “ignorant” you people’s favorite word or something? If you knew what that word meant you wouldn’t have used it as it isn’t applicable.

            National Siblings Day is YET ANOTHER DAY that does NOT get any attention nor will it ever. GTFOOH with the bullsh!t giving everyday and “special” name for a group of people that no one gives a f^ck about.

            It’s not Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, MLK Day etc. Stop REACHIN’.

            • alex

              1st of all, How do you know I’m black….2nd of all…your starting to sound racist and yet again rude so I’m done talking about this….goodbye!

              • PolkaDots

                Dude, you’re Black. And I could care less than I already do about what you think about my opinion. My opinion is just that and it STANDS.

                • elle

                  Ignorant is the universal word for ASSES

                  • PolkaDots

                    Yet another NEGRA who lacks decorum and the ability to comprehend. Say hello to the mailman when he brings your welfare check you G.E.D. recipient.

                    You will forever be a loser – hahahaha MUAH!

                    De nada!

                • alex


                  • PolkaDots
