Kudrow shares Julian with husband Michael Stern, 63, whom she married in May 1995. She was pregnant with Julian while filming season 4 of Friends, and her pregnancy was written into the show.

"The six of us would do a huddle backstage and just say, 'All right, have a good show, love you love you love you love you,' " she recalled to PEOPLE in 2018.

"And when I was pregnant, then they would say, 'Have a great show, love you love you — love you, little Julian!' " the mom of one previously raved. "Cause we knew it was a boy and that was his name. So sweet, they included my little fetus in the huddle."

"He was able to come to the reunion… and afterward, he came up to me and he said, 'Can I say that I'm really proud of you?' " she shared.

"That was one of the very emotional things that happened to me," Kudrow added.
