On Friday, the Power Rangers actress took to social media to share a vulnerable subject with the world. In a lengthy sentimental post, the 20-year-old singer exposed she had a half-sister, Amber and it was her 18th birthday. 

The Mexican-American singer captioned the post "with love..." as she informed her followers on why she kept it under wraps for so long. She explained how she knew about her step-sister since she was 13-year-olds but promised she would wait until Amber turned 18 to reach out in hopes of reconnecting. 

According to People, Becky G and Amber met for the first time this year. "Her relations with the family in the past were always through my dad. At least up until recently,” said the Mayores singer to the outlet.
