Friends' fans are freaking out after releasing that Rachel and Ross's baby girl would be turning 18 next year.

Their on-screen daughter, Emma, was seen in multiple episodes from series eight of the hit show until the final season in 2004.

"Ok so I was watching Friends last night and Ross was filming a tape for Emma's 18th birthday and Chandler says the line 'Hi Emma. It's 2020. Have you woken up from your nap yet?' And it's just dawned on me that 2020 is NEXT YEAR. Emma would be 18 NEXT YEAR," one person wrote in a tweet, which went viral.

"That's insane. However I'm now trying to work out how many years I've been Friends obsessed for," one person replied.

"That can't be right? How did that happen?!" another replied.

The baby was played by twins Cali Sheldon and Noelle Sheldon, who have maintained their interest in the entertainment industry.

The pair will be continuing their acting careers by appearing on the big screen in Jordan Peele's new movie, Us.

"So excited to announce that @noelle.sheldon and I have been cast in the next @jordanpeele movie Us!" Cali wrote on her Instagram last year.

"So thankful for this opportunity and excited to work with such amazing actors and @jordanpeele."
