Jennifer Aniston, the actress, has achieved considerable success. She shot to popularity as Rachel Green in the popular television show Friends and has enjoyed a dazzling career for the past 30 years.

And whether or not you’ve followed Aniston over the years, you might not be aware that her adored father is a legendary actor in his own right. Jennifer is the child of John Aniston, a renowned soap opera performer.

Aniston was spotted honoring her father at the Daytime Emmys in June of this year. On Days of Our Lives, John received the Daytime Emmys Lifetime Achievement Award for his portrayal of Victor Kiriakis.

Since 1985, John Aniston has portrayed Kiriakis. In a post on Instagram, Jennifer stated that he was 89 when he passed away.

“Sweet papa…⁣ John Anthony Aniston ⁣

“John Anthony Aniston, you were one of the most beautiful people I’ve ever known, Jennifer said beside various images of her and her father throughout the years.”

“I am very happy that you flew into the heavens in peace and without suffering,” she continued. And on 11/11! Your timing was always impeccable. Now, that number will always have even more significance for me. I promise to adore you forever. Don’t forget to stop by.”

His exact cause of death is yet unknown.

Jennifer has been open about her difficult relationship with her mother, but it appears that she and her father have always been close. You might even remember the numerous Easter eggs throughout Friends that honored John Aniston and his illustrious career as a soap opera actor.

For instance, Matt LeBlanc’s character Joey Tribiani was a soap opera actor who frequently appeared on Day of Our Lives. Alison Sweeney, John’s co-star in real life, appeared as herself in a special appearance on the show.

In this incredibly trying time, our thoughts are with Jennifer Aniston and her family.
