LeBlanc, who played Joey Tribbiani, shares 16-year-old daughter Marina Pearl with ex-wife Melissa McKnight. He said in a 2016 interview that he is also involved in the lives of McKnight's two children, Tyler and Jacquelyn.

LeBlanc keeps his daughter mostly out of the limelight, though in 2016, he told PEOPLE that then 12-year-old Marina's biggest interests were "Horses and Rihanna." He added, "So that's what I'm into."

"Tyler's 25. He's a sound engineer," LeBlanc also told PEOPLE in 2016. "He works in a recording studio. And my daughter [Jacquelyn] graduates from FIT [on Thursday] ... She's in the design program. She's a really hard worker, and I'm proud of her. She's doing fantastic."

Kudrow's son Julian was technically also her costar — her pregnancy was written into character Phoebe Buffay's storyline on season 4 of 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 actress previously raved. "Cause we knew it was a boy and that was his name. So sweet, they included my little fetus in the huddle."

Kudrow told Conan O'Brien in May 2021 that her 23-year-old son supported her at the taping of Friends: The Reunion.

"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.

In 2011, Schwimmer (who played Ross Geller) and his then-wife Zoë Buckman welcomed their daughter Cleo into the world.

The Friends alumnus doesn't often make comments about his daughter, but in January 2018, he spoke with the Today show about how he discussed bodily autonomy with Cleo, who was 6½ at the time.

"With my daughter, it's more about just knowing it's your body and your space. It's more about personal space and building confidence in her to speak out and speak up if anything she encounters makes her feel uncomfortable, period," said Schwimmer. "Her body, her hair, it's hers. She owns it. It's giving her the courage and confidence to speak up and speak out."
