Union wrote, "We've been on this journey called life together and I couldn't be more proud and grateful to share our birthday with the baddest of the bad, the sharpest of the sharp and the beautiful-est of the beautiful!!" She added, "Happy Birthday @traceeellisross."

In the photo Union shared, Ross can be seen posing under the sun in a black bikini. The birthday twins must have coordinated their posts, because the "Black-ish" star also shared a bikini pic of her Scorpio sister to her social media page as well.

"@gabunion you are a shining and beautiful light," Ross wrote to Union. "I love being your birthday twin. You are a force, an inspiration and one of the only people who can get me to turn up. I love inhabiting a world and an industry with you. Happy Birthday you glorious being!!"
