Despite not having children of her own, Jennifer Aniston, famously recognized as Rachel Green, assumes the role of Coco’s godmother. Expressing her love and amazement at Coco’s rapid growth in a heartfelt comment on a 2019 photo, Aniston fondly said, “Coco! You’re growing up way too fast. Or am I just being protective? I love you deep. ❤️❤️❤️❤️”
