According to Catholic tradition, Mary was an only child. The confusion arises from a third Mary mentioned as the sister of Mary, the mother of Christ. She is thought to have been the wife of Cleophas who it is believed was the brother of St. Joseph. That would have made her the sister-in-law of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

The name of Jesus' mother's sister is not specifically mentioned in The Bible. Some scholars suggest that Jesus' mother, Mary, had a sister named also Mary based on John 19:25, where it mentions "his mother, his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene."
