The 57-year-old actress recently celebrated the National Siblings day by taking to her Instagram page to share a throwback photo that featured herself and her younger brother, Chris—the resemblance was uncanny.

The black and white picture saw the brother-sister duo seated in what she referred to as "Cinderella's pumpkin." She captioned the post:

Her brother, Chris Williams, who is also an actor, joined the celebrations when he shared several pictures of himself and his sister back in the day.

He also included a heartwarming throwback video clip that saw him playing with a toy guitar while his sister danced. Tagging his sister, he captioned the post:

"It's #nationalsiblingday! And I'm lucky to have my big sis as my sibling! Love you."

He has also starred in TV shows like "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," "Martin," "Californication," and "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation." Though Chris remains a bachelor, his sister Vanessa is somewhat considered an authority on the subject of marriage having made the trip to the altar three times.

Vanessa, who is a mom of four, has been married a total of three times: first to music manager Ramon Hervey II in 1987, then to NBA player Rick Fox in 1999, and currently to retired accountant Jim Skrip who she married in 2015.

Skrip and Vanessa celebrated their 4th wedding anniversary in 2018. The Grammy award winner had taken to her Instagram page to share a throwback photo of herself and Skrip during their wedding ceremony, which was held in Buffalo, New York—where they first met.
