Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer are rumoured to be dating, and fans are freaking out as it looks like Ross and Rachel might just be a real-life couple.
Co-stars of the hit TV show Friends have previously confessed their secret feelings for one another during Friends: The Reunion earlier this year.
But have they made moves on each other? Well, a source has revealed that this might be the case because the pair are now rumoured to be dating – FINALLY!
The actress, 52, and the actor, 54, who are best known for their roles on Friends as Rachel Green and Ross Geller are believed to be together in real life.
Ross Geller and Rachel Green were the popular on/off couple in the hit 90s sitcom, and now they are said to have made fiction reality.

Ross and Rachel were and still are firm favourites from the hit show Friends.
With their realistic relationship, the couple endured everything from break-ups to pregnancies, marriages to drunk hookups.
Ross and Rachel went through many trials that included hectic work schedules, the girl from the copy place, Pheobe’s hot bald friend, Mark, Julie, Paolo, falling pregnant, drunk hook-ups and marriages in Vegas.
Known as the will-they-or-won’t-they couple, they can be seen throughout the show having an on/off relationship, which ultimately begins as an innocent high school crush to falling head-over-heels in love in the series finale.

In The Last One, also known as The One Where They Say Goodbye, Rachel decides not to go to Paris.
The episode that aired on May 6 2004, brought in around 52.5 million viewers in America alone.
The final instalment of the 10 season sitcom saw Erica giving birth to Monica and Chandler’s twins as well as Rachel getting off the plane.
Rachel boards the plane for Paris and Ross tells her he loves her, but she is unable to deal with his confession and gets on the plane anyway.
A rejected Ross returns home and finds a message from Rachel on the phone where she explains her actions and decides to get off the plane.
Rachel then arrives back home and the couple reunite and rekindle their romance for good.
The unspoken rule
Jennifer Aniston, 52, thrills as she flaunts never-ending pins in sultry slit dress
Although Jennifer and David had a massive amount of chemistry, they never actually dated while they were filming the show.
This is thought to be because the Friends cast had an 'unspoken rule' not to date one another.
In the reunion show Lisa Kudrow insisted that the cast's chemistry never left the screen and made it into their real lives.
Lisa claims that this was because they were determined not to 'mess with' the bond they had on screen.
On the reunion show Matthew said: "There was a rule, it was really important to the six of us, that we kept a friendship. Hooking up could have caused a strangeness that might mess with things. And we are really good friends to this day."

Despite the 'unspoken rule' Woman’s Day recently claimed in a report that Jennifer and David secretly dated for four years while they were filming the hit sitcom series.
In 2019 Mirror looked back at the cast’s secret flings and reposted that in 2005, there were rumours that the real life Ross and Rachel were dating after Jennifer split from Brad Pitt.
And in 2010 David married British artist Zoe Buckman and in 2015 Jennifer married Justin Theroux – but things didn't go Schwimmingly.
Both couples ended up splitting up and it was reported that David was 'keen' on reconnecting with his former on-screen lover.
“David's always held a candle for Jen and has never stopped loving her,” an insider said.
“But it was a case of never being the right time as one of them was always in a relationship after their fling all those years ago.”

Fans were overjoyed when David and Jennifer revealed that they had feelings for each other while filming season one of the show, recalling how they flirted a lot and got cozy on set.
They even revealed that they cuddled and spooned on the famous sofa during rehearsals.
"The first season, I had a major crush on Jen," Schwimmer said, 27 years after the first episode aired in 1994.
Jen then dropped the bombshell that got fans rather excited: "It was reciprocated."
Before David then continued: "We were both crushing hard on each other, but it was like two ships passing. One of us was always in a relationship and we never crossed that boundary."
During the reunion back in May, James Corden who was hosting the show said it was “inconceivable” there were no off-screen romances.
