The 57-year-old shared a picture of her and her son hugging whilst still wearing his graduation robe. "Happy proud HAPPY. And a little crying. By me not him.. @juls_magewls," she wrote.

Lisa will soon be back on screens for the Friends reunion

As well as a busy personal life, Lisa has also been gearing up for the upcoming Friends reunion, set to take place on 27 May.

Last week, the official trailer dropped which saw all the regular stars such as Lisa, David Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Matt Le Blanc, Matthew Perry, and Courteney Cox reunite for a table read, an emotional discussion about the show and a game of Ross' iconic quiz.

James Corden will host the sit-down Q&A, which was filmed on the set where the credits were filmed.

The cast will be joined by many celebrity and well-known faces such as Lady Gaga and Malala Yousafzai as well as former guest stars from the sitcom like James Michael Tyler, who played Gunther, and Tom Selleck, who played Richard Burke.

Many, however, were saddened to see Paul Rudd, who played Phoebe's husband, Mike, missing from the line-up.
