Baby Emma From Friends Is All Grown Up And We Are Shook

Prepare to feel old.

Warner Bros.

Despite us approaching the 15th anniversary of Friends, the show remains as relevant and popular as ever.

Ever since Netflix added the sitcom to its catalogue, it opened the door for a whole host of brand new fans of the show – even if it has led to the odd issue through the dated storylines.

There has been so many characters over the show’s 10-year run, that it would be difficult to keep tabs on how they’d all faired since it came to a bittersweet end.

Remember Emma? You know, Ross and Rachel’s baby whose name posed a dilemma? Well, she was actually played by two twin girls (a common practice within the TV industry for working purposes), and those girls have both grown a lot since their time on the show.

Noelle and Cali Sheldon are the actresses behind the iconic character, and they recently celebrated their 16th birthday.

“A lot of people in our school watch it, and most of them know we were in it, so they think that’s pretty cool,” Noelle once told Bustle about playing Emma.

Gretchen Sheldon, their mother, also said the girls had a lot of fun playing the same part when they were just toddlers.

“Everyone was really, really nice to Noelle and Cali, and treated them like little princesses on the set,” she added to the publication. “[Friends] filmed before a live audience, and Cali and Noelle would come out, and they would be waving and engaging with the live audience. It was a lot of fun.”
