The star's post on Instagram starts off with a photo from The Morning Show duo's time on the legendary show, where, while in character, Reese is in distress as Jennifer points out something and Courteney Cox, Matt Le Blanc, David Schwimmer and Lisa Kudrow stand in the background.

Jen started off her caption by endearingly describing the Big Little Lies star as: "My little sister > co-anchor > partner in crime." 

The behind-the-scenes video included in the post made it even cuter than it already was, as it showed the We're the Millers actress recording the set of The Morning Show and as her camera reaches her co-star, she says: "Reese, be my Valentine," and she blows her a kiss in return.

Fans flooded the comments with congratulatory messages as they fawned over the sweet pictures, writing: "Beautiful sisters! Happy birthday, Reese," and: "Aww love your friendship so much!!" as well as: "The best duo there is, I love you both sunshines!!!"
