French term or phrase: frère et soeur
Bonjour,
Voici le contexte:

Il apprend que la maison familiale a été vendue et que sa mère, sa sœur et son frère ont déménagé dans une autre ville.

La personne concernée a un frère et une soeur . La formulation "ses frère et soeur" est-elle exacte? Ou doit-on nécessairement utiliser le pluriel "ses frères et soeurs" quand bien même il n'y a qu'un frère et une soeur?

Merci d'avance pour vos lumières (j'éteins les miennes car il se fait tard ici).
