Becky G revealed on Friday she has a half-sister.
The 20-year-old singer and actress opened up about her family member for the first time in a long, emotional social media post. “Today is my half-sister’s 18th birthday,” she said. “Yes, I said it, my half-sister.”
“I learned about Amber when I was 13-years-old,” she explained, adding how her half-sister “hasn’t always been a part of our family for reasons bigger than us.”
According to Becky G, “we met for the first time this year. Her relations to the family in the past were always through my dad. At least up until recently.”
The “Power Rangers” star continued, “Although there has been an effort on both sides to move forward in a positive direction, it takes time to catch up on 18 years and to process it all. It’s not something that happens overnight. It’s all been an emotional rollercoaster.”
