my younger sister

a. I saw that movie with my younger sister.
b. Betty is my younger sister.


Could one use those sentences if one had more than one younger sister?
Do they necessarily imply that one has only one younger sister?

Many thanks.

1. Yes
2. No, they may suggest, but do not necessarily imply only one younger sister.
