Veteran actor, producer, and businesswoman Connie Ferguson penned a heartfelt message to her sister, Lorato Atosie Pilane, on her birthday on Women's Day.

In her caption to a post of several pictures of the two, Ferguson said she recently told her father that she was grateful her parents made sure she never had to navigate life alone. "Thank you for giving birth to my grandmother, my mother, my sister, my daughter, [and] my bestest best friend!"

Addressing her sister, who she referred to as her Benas in the caption, The Queen actor said saying she loved her sister was "the biggest understatement." "You have been with me and walked with me through so much! God uses you in ways only you can carry that assignment. I thank Him for you and your life every day! I pray he keeps you and grants you all the desires of your heart."


In May, Ferguson penned another heartfelt birthday message to her "pops, sterring, sensei, the goat" – her father – on his 86th birthday. She held a lavish birthday celebration for her only-surviving parent.
