Lisa Kudrow has shared the sweetest story about how her son Julian bonded with her Friends co-star Jennifer Aniston when he was a baby. Honestly, this is adorable.

Lisa and Jen starred in Friends together over the course of a decade until 2004, working on approximately 236 episodes and forming a lifelong friendship.

In a new interview, Lisa, now 57, has touched on how that bond also stretched to her son Julian, who was born in May 1998. The actress revealed he would often mistake Lisa's co-star for his mum, and crawl into Jen's lap.

Speaking on Literally! With Rob Lowe (via Hello), she explained, "When we were home and we would be watching something, the show was, and there was Jennifer and Julian my son would be like 'mummy' and my son couldn't see the difference.

"When he did see Jennifer, he would crawl into her lap," Lisa continued, before joking, "You prefer her, that's fine, a lot of people do. She's lovely."

Imagine having Jennifer Aniston as your fake auntie and Lisa Kudrow as your actual mother. THE BEST.

Lisa has been married to Michel Stern, an advertising executive, since 1995. Julian, now 23, is their only son, with Lisa sharing a picture of the pair to celebrate his birthday in lockdown. "Happy birthday my lovely son! @juls_magewls," Lisa wrote in May 2020.
