Family always comes first.
On Friday, Becky G wrote an emotional post on Twitter revealing she has a half-sister named Amber who turned 18 that exact day. The Shower singer first heard about her sibling when she was 13, and the two finally met earlier this year.
Unfortunately, Becky says Amber “hasn’t always been a part of our family for reasons bigger than us.” While both sides have made efforts toward a reconciliation, it hasn’t always been easy.
The Power Rangers actress wrote:
“Although there has been 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 over night. It’s all been an emotional rollercoaster.”
The Inglewood native has also “made a promise to myself that the day that Amber turned 18 was the day that I would reach out├óΓé¼┬ª in hopes that we can move forward in whatever direction us two decided to move in.”
Ultimately, Becky wants Amber to know that there is no bad blood between them, and she only wishes her “happiness” and “all the best in life.”
“Amber, you are not forgotten, locked away in a closet, hidden or hated. I don’t know what your journey has been this far in life. But since I’ve learned about you I can tell you, I’ve always thought about you, I’ve always prayed for you, & I’ve tried to put myself in your shoes a million times. What happened between our parents was not our fault. I want you to know that I wish you all the best in life and that you find happiness wherever your heart takes you. What the future has in store for us two is unknown but I needed you [to] know this.”
