Musician and former Disney Channel star Miley Cyrus has been in our lives since she was a tween, but her siblings aren’t as well known. And our curiosity about them has only increased over the years.
Though the 24-year-old has secured her place in pop star history, her little sister Noah Cyrus has emerged as a force of her own in 2017. The 17-year-old was born on Jan. 8, 2000, and has been singing almost as long as her sibling.
“My dad [Billy Ray Cyrus] always had me sing alongside him while he played guitar. He taught me how to harmonize to an old song of his, ‘Missing You,'” she revealed in an interview. “Writing is the best way to get your mind clear. It’s also a great way to explain your past or what you hope for the future.”
And for anyone who’s followed Noah’s transformation, it’s hard to believe that she’s now old enough to be dating! The brunette beauty is currently in a serious relationship with boyfriend Tanner Drayton. The cute couple cozied up to one another at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards in August.
But it was her messy split from an unidentified ex that inspired much of her upcoming debut album, NC-17. “During the process of making NC-17, I had a boyfriend, so a lot of the songs are about my breakup,” she explained. “I was really sad after and realized it was a big mistake, because I didn’t realize how happy I was in the moment and that I took it for granted.”
It looks like someone’s trying to steal Miley’s crown! Get to know the rest of the “Wrecking Ball” hitmaker’s brothers and sisters in the gallery below, including the half-sibling we never knew she had!
