Tracee Ellis Ross Posts Heartfelt Birthday Tribute for ‘Baby Brother’ Evan (Who Might Look Familiar)

Tracee Ellis Ross is offering a glimpse inside her selfie collection in honor of a super-special occasion.

This week, the Black-ish star, 48, shared a slideshow of never-before-seen photos on her Instagram account. The new post doubled as a birthday tribute for her brother, Evan Ross, who just turned 33.

The slideshow begins with a rare selfie of the sister-brother duo, which is followed by two candid shots with Tracee wearing funky glasses. The next photo is the most serious of the bunch, featuring the pair looking at the camera. In the last image, Tracee is sporting a velvet ensemble as she wraps her arm around Evan, who looks equally chic in a plaid coat.

The caption read, “Happy Birthday to my baby brother @realevanross. How you are 33 is beyond me. I love you soooooo much it’s bananas. Just bananas.”

If Evan looks familiar, it’s probably because he’s a talented actor (just like his sister). Although he’s appeared in titles like Supremacy, 90210 and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, he’s widely known for playing Ant in ATL. Oh, and did we mention he’s married to Ashlee Simpson? They share two children together: Jagger (6) and Ziggy (1).

One fan commented, “There is no way that’s your brother!!!!!! Omgggggg I love your whole family ! Lmao.” Another added, “I forgot he was your brother. I was like that’s dude from ATL [laughing emojis]. Happy bday Evan.”
