Ben is all grown up!

In honor of “Friends” 25th anniversary, it’s youngest star, Cole Sprouse, shared the ultimate throwback photo of himself on the iconic Central Perk couch.

Sprouse portrayed Ben Geller, the son of Ross (David Schwimmer) and his ex-wife, Carol Willick (Jane Sibbett) on the long-running sitcom which is celebrating 25 years on Sunday.

In a photo shared on Instagram, Sprouse, now 27, sits on the famous couch alongside Joey Tribbiani’s (Matt LeBlanc) stuffed penguin, named Hugsy.

Fans of the show immediately began to flip out, commenting on how many years have passed since the iconic show aired.

“look at little Ben,” one user wrote while another simply stated, “my heart.”

The new photo of Ben may be all “Friends” fans can expect as the show’s creators recently confirmed there won’t be a reunion or reboot series happening anytime soon.

“We will not be doing a reunion show, we will not be doing a reboot,” co-creator and executive producer Marta Kauffman said last week during the Tribeca TV Festival, according to Deadline.

She reasoned that a continuation of the series is “not going to beat what we did.”

Co-creator and executive producer David Crane agreed.

“We did the show we wanted to do. We got it right, and we put a bow on it,” he added.

“We never intended Monica and Chandler,” Kauffman explained. “But the audience reaction was so strong, and their chemistry was so good that we ultimately had to listen to the show. We knew there’s a real relationship here.”
