Charlie Sheen has three siblings, Emilio Estevez, Ramon Estevez and Renée Estevez, share the actor’s interest in film and TV.

Born to Janet and Martin Sheen, the four kids are all performers in their own right, working in front of and behind the camera. “We share a lot of the same characteristics,” Emilio once told Bobbie Wygant.

The firstborn, Emilio, was welcomed by Janet and Martin in 1962 in New York City. A year later, Ramon joined the family. Charlie arrived in 1965, and the youngest of the Estevez/Sheen family, Renée, was born in 1967.

When the kids were younger, Emilio told Jon Foss that the family formed strong bonds as they traveled together while their dad, Martin, filmed movies around the world. “We’re a pretty tight unit,” Emilio said.

Martin and Janet welcomed their first child, Emilio Estevez, on May 12, 1962, in Staten Island, New York. Emilio was raised and attended school in New York City until his family moved to California when Martin was cast in the 1970 film Catch-22.

As a young teen, he traveled with his father to the Philippines while he filmed the Vietnam War film Apocalypse Now. Once he returned to Los Angeles, Emilio co-wrote and starred in a play called Echoes.

In the 1980s, Emilio was part of what was dubbed the Brat Pack in Hollywood — a group of young actors who regularly appeared together in coming-of-age movies — which also included Molly Ringwald, Rob Lowe and Demi Moore.

Emilio starred in The Outsiders, The Breakfast Club and St. Elmo’s Fire before being cast in The Mighty Ducks and its subsequent films in the ’90s.

In 1992, Estevez married Paula Abdul, but the couple got divorced two years later. He also shares two children from a past relationship with former model Carey Salley: Taylor Levi Estévez and Paloma Estevez.

On August. 7, 1963, Martin and Janet welcomed their second son Ramon Estevez — his father’s namesake — in N.Y.C.

From a young age, Ramon was interested in entertaining and was drawn to acting, singing and dancing, especially idolizing Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly. He even performed with Danny Daniel’s Dance America Company as a teenager.

“That was a great experience to be involved in it at that age,” he told Los Angeles Times in 1991. “There was so much technique involved. I was too young to realize how difficult it was because it was so much fun.”

He began acting in the early 1980s and was often billed as Ramon Sheen for his roles, including 1985’s That Was Then… This Is Now and 1987’s Turnaround. The rising actor also shared the screen with his dad and younger brother Charlie in the 1990s historical prison film Cadence, which Martin also directed.

In 2002, Martin and Ramon founded the independent production company Estevez Sheen Productions. Today, Ramon and Charlie run the establishment. Ramon also collaborated with his brother on Anger Management as a co-producer of the sitcom that ran for two seasons from 2012 to 2014 on FX.

While little is known about his private life, Ramon has three children from a previous relationship.

Martin and Janet welcomed their youngest child and first daughter, Renée Estevez, in N.Y.C. on April 2, 1967. Much like her parents and three eldest siblings, she pursued a career in entertainment, appearing in several roles in the mid-to-late ’80s, including on CBS Schoolbreak Special and MacGyver. She also held minor roles in films like Shattered Spirits and Heathers.

Renée has worked on several projects alongside her family. She starred in the 1996 film The War At Home, directed by her brother Emilio and featured their father as part of the cast. She was also a regular guest star on The West Wing, portraying the character Nancy, an assistant of President Josiah Bartlet, played by her father.

While Renée studied pastry and baking science at the California Culinary Academy, she met chef Jason Thomas Federico, who earned a degree in culinary arts. The New York Times reported that the couple tied the knot in 1997 at The Church of Our Lady of the Scapular–St. Stephen in N.Y.C. In 2011, Renée filed for divorce from Federico.
