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.”
