It’s Courteney Cox birthday and her best friend Jennifer Aniston made sure to make her special day more special. Aniston made sure to celebrate her friend’s 58th birthday on sharing a special throwback photo of the two hugging on her Instagram Story. Alongside the throwback snap, the Morning Show actress wrote, “Happy Birthday CC!” adding “I love you soo much” with several red heart and heart-eyed emojis.

Aniston also penned a second celebratory message to her former Friends costar, posting a GIF of Cox’s character Monica Geller saying, “And I can do anything I want! Because I am a grown-up.” “Cheers to being a grown-up,” Aniston penned. Cox and Aniston reunited in April, getting together to don matching “Friends Forever” shirts while promoting a clothing line focusing on the last four seasons of the beloved sitcom.

The two shirts worn by the longtime friends featured a set of six keys around the words, symbolizing the final moment of the series in which all six friends left behind their keys when Monica and Chandler (Matthew Perry) moved out of their apartment. “Friends forever link in bio @americares @ebmrf,” Aniston and Cox captioned the joint Instagram post.

Friends ran for 10 seasons on NBC from 1994 to 2004. Aniston played by Rachel Green, Cox starred as Monica Geller, Lisa Kudrow as Phoebe Buffay, Matt LeBlanc aka Joey Tribbiani, Perry played Chandler Bing and David Schwimmer starred as Ross Geller, all got back together for the HBO Max special, Friends: The Reunion, last year. During the special, which premiered in May 2021, Friends stars revealed a number of behind-the-scenes stories from their time on the show.

They also reflected about being a part of the hit series. “It was an incredible time,” Cox told her costars during the unscripted special. “Everything came together. We became best friends through just the chemistry, the whole thing. It was life-changing and it forever will be not just for us, but for people who watch it, and that’s such a great feeling to carry forever. I’m really thankful, and I love you guys so much.”
