In the post's caption, Jane advised her followers to hug their kids while they can, no matter how tall they were, jokingly referencing her son's height. 

On October last year, Jane also shared a photo of her youngest child and daughter, who posed with her best friend, with both girls holding glasses of apple ciders, and in the caption, the actress counted her many blessings, writing:

"My happy girl & her bestie are away at college now, my eldest just got her new teaching degree, my son and his wife are also thriving. It's count your blessings day!"

Ruby Fink, the oldest daughter of Jane Sibbett, also made a post on last year's National Siblings Day, where she shared a throwback photo of herself and her younger siblings. 

In the caption, Ruby jokingly recalled the days when she was taller than her siblings. She concluded by saying that she loved them and was proud of how much they had grown within a short time. 

One interesting revelation they made, concerned what happened to Ben after series 8.

In "Friends," Jane Sibbett's character asides being Ross's ex-wife, also had a sassy girlfriend, Susan (played by Jessica Hecht). Both women combined to bring up Ross and Carol's son, Ben.

Jane and Jessica stopped by at London's Friends Fest to chill out at Central Perk, and revealed to "Comedy Central," some details of their time on the set of "Friends." 

One interesting revelation they made concerned what happened to Ben after series 8. Ben was last seen on the show in the episode titled, "The One Where Joey Dates Rachel."

It’s a curious thing growing older and watching my once bright blonde never dyed pigment fade. All my life friends would comment it was crazy I hadn’t lost my blonde “yet,” but age is a privilege of life, and I’m grateful I’m alive for all of it. Mom was all grey as long as I can recall, so I thought the white hair would come sooner, but no... first I have found I am fading ... as it is now. Someone called me dishwater blonde the other day and I laughed. That’s beige? Ha! It’s all good, though I was eyeing a unicorn masseuse with rainbow purple locks and wondered if I, at 57, could play that way. I just want kindness and us all to be nice to ourselves. #age #actress #writer #grace #prayerdancer #happy #blondehair #hollywood #friends #redcarpet #jammies #real #getreal #honest #comfy #grace
