Yes, she had two daughters called Heanua and Lannosea. Little is known about them other than that they were raped by rogue Roman troops following the death of Boudicca's husband Prasutagus, who had been King of the powerful Iceni tribe and who had tried to ensure good relations with the Romans by making the then Roman Emperor, Nero, co-heir in his will. The Roman Governor of Britain, Gaius Paulinus, ignored this gesture and took advantage of Prasutagus's death to try and conquer the Iceni, imprisoning Boudicca, having her daughters sexually violated, killing or torturing many of the Iceni people, and siezing their land and assets.

Both daughters took part in their mother's revolt against Roman rule, but committed suicide alongside her by drinking poison after the rebellion had been crushed.

Did Boudicca have any brothers or sisters?

Boudicca's parentage is unknown, but she is believed to have come from Celtic Royal stock. Neither is it known who her siblings were (she probably had brothers and sisters, but their identities are lost to history). She was married to King Prasutagus, ruler of the powerful Iceni tribe based in the South East of England, and had two daughters by him, Heanua and Lannosea. The King died around 60 AD, and Boudicca's armed rebellion against Roman occupation began soon afterwards when the treacherous British Governor, Gaius Paulinus, ordered the Iceni's land and assets to be siezed, had Boudicca imprisoned and her two daughters raped by rogue troops. Both Boudicca and her two daughters committed suicide in 61 AD, following the collapse of the Celtic rebellion.
