Happy birthday to sisters from another mister, Kelly Rowland (40) and Brandy (42). The soulful singers who started their careers in their teens are now grown moms in their early 40s — and looking every bit of fabulous, might we add.

In true Aquarius style, their charm defines their personality. We’ll always love Kelly’s impromptu throwback performance singing Brandy’s classic song, I Wanna Be Down.

These birthday twins have shared some fun times together and even share some similarities beyond their birthdays. Here are our top 11:
