Ross Siblings Ranked Oldest to Youngest

Tracee Ellis Ross’s 5 Siblings Ranked Oldest to Youngest

Amongst celebrities who share the Ross surname, there are a few families we can point to that represent it well. Whether it’s Malcolm Ross, Bob Ross, or even Rick Ross of Maybach Music fame, there’s one Ross in particular that stands head and shoulders above the rest when we think about Hollywood icons, popularity, and lifetime achievements. Of course, we’re talking about the singing, entertaining, acting extraordinaire Diana Ross.

Diana Ross skyrocketed to stardom as the face and lead singer of the Supremes — unequivocally Motown’s most successful group through the 1960s. Thanks to their outstanding commercial success, they became one of the best-selling girl groups of all time. As of 2022, they are still the best-charting female group in music, and it’s a title we won’t see challenged for a long time.

With as much talent as Diana has, it’s no surprise that her offspring have had successful careers. That must be one of the luxuries of living and learning from one of the best to ever step into showbiz.

So join us while we learn more about the siblings that round out this iconic family who have left an indelible impact on American culture.

Tracee Ellis Ross is undoubtedly the most famous, eclectic, and exuberant sibling out of all six in the Ross clan! You might have recognized her showcasing her knee-buckling sense of humor on late-night talk shows or on Instagram sharing hilarious moments of her life and silly little dances she comes up with in her spare time.

If not, you’ve probably seen her portray Dr. Rainbow “Bow” Johnson in ABC’s Black-ish — one of the most popular television sitcoms of the last several years.

Tracee is much more than a successful woman with an infectious personality. She’s the owner and CEO of Pattern Beauty, a hair-care line that pays a little extra love to those with thicker, curlier, and harder-to-manage hair.

Tracee’s recurring role in Black-ish has netted her three NAACP Image Awards and a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress — Television Series Musical or Comedy. With her critical acclaim, she’s done an excellent job in doing the near-impossible of separating herself from her mother’s success as an individual worthy of her own.
