Adding the throwback Thursday hashtag, #TBT, Aniston captioned the post: "Christmas with one of my creators. Then and now." The actress also shared a recent photo with her father. She added, "Love you, papa."
With more than 35.7 million Instagram followers, it was no surprise when the actress's post received more than five million likes and numerous comments. Many fans noticed the resemblance between Aniston and her father.
As reported by Daily Mail, Aniston underwent years of therapy to cope with the abandonment issues she suffered after her father, John, left her as a child.
John is best known for playing the role of Victor Kiriakis on "Days of Our Lives." Recently, a source revealed to the publication that the actress has already forgiven him.
Aniston also had a strained relationship with her mother, actress Nancy Aniston.

Realizing that life is very short, Aniston wanted her relationship with her dad to be the best it can be, the source explained, adding that Aniston and John often talk on the phone amid the current global crisis.
Aniston also had a strained relationship with her mother, actress Nancy Aniston. The "Friends" actress reportedly refused to talk to her mother for fifteen years.

She did not even invite her to her wedding ceremony with Brad Pitt in 2000. However, Aniston and Nancy had reconciled just before the latter's death in 2016, Mirror reported.
Since June 14, 1984, Aniston's father has been married to actress Sherry Rooney, who is known for "The Fall Guy," "Love of Life," and "Search for Tomorrow." The couple has a child together, son Alexander.
