‘The Chi’, created by Lena Waithe, is a drama series set in Chicago. In a tough neighborhood where any decision could be life-or-death, an unexpected sequence of events throws Kevin into serious trouble. Kiesha and Kevin are siblings who belong to a loving family. They are both very close and protective of each other. Birgundi Baker portrays Kiesha Williams, and Alex Hibbert appears as Kevin Williams. Aside from the fact that both actors have compelling dynamism as brother and sister, fans of the show can’t believe how similar they are. It’s no wonder people think they’re siblings in real life. Is that really so? Here’s what we know!

Are Kiesha and Kevin siblings in real life?

No, Birgundi Baker (Kiesha) and Alex Hibbert (Kevin) are not siblings in real life. In fact, the two aren’t even related. Baker is a 29-year-old actress who is much older than her 17-year-old co-star, Hibbert. According to sources, Baker was born in Raleigh, North Carolina, on March 6, 1992. She graduated from Howard University, where she studied the Musical Theater Program. She reportedly became pregnant with her first child in her senior year of college. But Baker’s young daughter became the driving force that inspired her to get serious about acting. You may recognize the actress from “Chicago Med,” “Empire,” “Station 19,” and “Black Lightning.”

Baker comes from a family of entertainers – her grandmother used to be a musician, her mother a dancer and her aunt is an actor. Baker is not only an actress, but also an accomplished dancer and musician. It seems that the actress does not have a brother, but she does have three sisters.

In contrast, Alex Hibbert seems to have taken a very different life journey. Born on July 4, 2004 in New York, the young actor is best known for his touching role in the Oscar-winning film ‘Moonlight’. He even received a nomination for Best Young Actor at the Critics’ Choice Award in 2016. Hibbert landed the part when his theater teacher Tanisha Cidel encouraged her students to audition for the film. His family moved to Miami when he was about seven years old, which opened up many opportunities for the young actor. We know that Hibbert has an older half-brother and a stepsister (on father’s side).

So even though Baker and Hibbert aren’t related, Showtime didn’t pass up the opportunity to celebrate their on-screen sibling. Plus, Baker seems really involved in her comparison to Hibbert’s character in “The Chi.” She took to social media to express that her on-screen brother Kevin needs to move away from Jemma, and fans couldn’t help but agree. It’s unbelievable how casting directors find the right people to portray the characters, especially if they have to look alike. But this team takes the trophy for casting Birgundi Baker and Alex Hibbert as siblings, because the resemblance between the two is uncanny!
