While the Bad Boys actor Martin Lawrence proudly calls his family his squad, he remembers the fan-favorite feisty Sheneneh Jenkins of the 1992 sitcom Martin took inspiration from his sister Ursula Lawrence.

But that’s not it! Besides being an inspiration, the two sisters of Martin Lawrence even made a special cameo on the show. In Season 3, episode 25, titled ‘Bachelor Party,’ Ursula Woodland and Rae Proctor were a part of Gina’s friend circle.

As these two sisters looked alike, many even pondered if they were twins. However, it seems they are not twin sisters.

Martin Lawrence’s siblings work alongside him without hogging his limelight

Born on April 16, 1965, to parents Chlora and John Lawrence, Martin Lawrence has three siblings: Brother Robert and sisters Ursula Woodland and Rae Proctor.

Though Martin’s siblings haven’t been in the spotlight, they are monumental figures who support and work alongside the actor.

Robert, Ursula, and Rae have worked as Lawrence’s assistants in big projects like the Bad Boys trilogy and Big Momma’s House.

Also, in 2002, Martin released Martin Lawrence Live: Runteldat with his brother as executive producer. He said, “Working with Robert, my brother, on the film was really special.” Meanwhile, his sister Rae Proctor was also the associate producer of the movie Nothing to Lose, starring Martin Lawrence.

Besides their professional endeavors, not much information about the Lawrence siblings is available to the public.

In 2018, Martin celebrated his 53rd birthday with his family and shared a photo of his three siblings.

Also, in 2021, the actor took to his socials to wish his sister Ursula a happy birthday. He wrote, “Y’all gotta join me in wishing my sister Ursula the happiest of birthdays! May it be blessed with lots of love, laughter and family.”
