Meet Annie and Ruby

While their mother is familiar to many for her roles in TV and film, Annie and Ruby have opted to pursue careers away from the spotlight.

Curtis’ eldest daughter Annie is a dance instructor, having started teaching at the age of 16. Over the years, Annie has taught at a number of schools, including Windward School and Archer School For Girls.

Her most recent role was at MNR Dance Factory in Los Angeles as a team director, although her faculty page seems to have since been deleted.

Ruby is reported to be a computer gaming editor working for a popular unnamed gaming YouTuber. Ruby is a private person so not much is known about her online.

However, Ruby shared an insight into her personal life in an interview with AARP magazine in July this year, revealing she had transitioned from male to female.

Ruby also talked about her transition in a recent interview with People magazine as she opened up about how she felt coming out as transgender to her parents. She told the publication: “It was intimidating – but I wasn’t worried. They had been so accepting of me my entire life.”
