Singer Billie Eilish – born Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O’Connell – turned 20 on Saturday and received a loving tribute from her brother Finneas for the occasion.
Finneas, who is a musician in his own right and has contributed significantly to Eilish’s success, took to Instagram to wish his little sister a warm happy birthday.
The artist, who is four years older than his sister, wrote: ’20!!!!!!!!! Watching you grow and become the thoughtful, incredibly kind, talented, hilarious and hardworking person you are today was the joy of my life!’

The two photos – presumably taken by Finneas – show Eilish in a neon green windbreaker, black trousers and a gold necklace as she sits on the floor, leaning her back against the white wall behind her.
The singer’s blonde hair is in a messy bun and she holds a pink iPhone in her hand.
The brother also added a quirky video to his post in which Billie appears to playfully nibble on her mother’s hair while the two women are in a bathroom while he films them.

‘Ow! So weird,” Eilish’s mother lamented as her daughter burst out laughing.
“What just happened?” Finneas asked while filming the two.
“She bit my hair and pulled it out of my head,” Eilish’s mother replied, seemingly amused by the situation.

The Eilish family certainly seems to be close, and the siblings especially excel at being creative together.
Finneas has won eight Grammy Awards for his work on the debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? In an interview with NME in October, he revealed that their intimate connection helps during the creative process.
“I enjoy working with anyone you could name I’ve worked with,” he said. “I’ve never had a terrible experience with anyone. But I think just the intimacy of a relationship with a sibling is impossible to replicate or duplicate.”
He also added: ‘I don’t know that anything could get’ [as] strong as our creative bond.’
