Jack & Erica Bing


In part one of the series finale, Erica is rushed to the hospital to give birth to Monica and Chandler's child. After a baby boy is delivered, the doctor notifies them that "the next one will be on its way soon". Monica, Chandler, and Erica (and the rest of the gang) were unaware of this. However, Monica didn't care how many babies there were; She would keep them all. Then, Erica delivers a baby girl. They name them Jack (after Monica's father) and Erica (after her birth mother) respectively.


  • In an interview after the end of the show, Jennifer Aniston (the actress who previously played the role of the character Rachel) said she believed Ross and Rachel had at least one more child after the series finale.
