Girls’ night out. Cheryl Burke recently reconnected with her half-sister Ina Burke following the death of their father in March — and the pair made their first outing together.
The Burke sisters attended The Private VIP Premier of Luxe Obscura at The Sayers Club on Saturday, July 21, in Hollywood, California, where they were on hand to watch a cabaret performance.
On July 9, the professional dancer announced on Instagram that she had found her long-lost sibling following the death of her father, Louis Burke. “With my father’s passing came a lot of darkness but there was also a lot of light – I found my sister who I had never known. We recently met for the first time and it was such a surreal experience to walk into a room to meet and walk out feeling like we had known each other forever. In her I see the same drive and passion that our dad had and there’s clearly a major family resemblance,” she captioned the post, alongside a photo of the pair — who bear a striking resemblance — together. “It may have taken 30 years to find each other, but I am so excited to have another sister for life.”
Ina shared that sentiment, captioning the same shot, “We only met yesterday, but it felt like we have known each other for a long time. Can’t believe it’s taken 30 years to finally meet my other half. #SisterFromTheSameMister”
Since connecting, the Burke sisters have been spending more and more time getting to know each other. On July 20, the pair filmed a segment for Good Morning America, where they goofed around and discussed their experience finding one another after decades of being apart.
