In season four of “Friends,” the people who wrote the show decided to use Lisa Kudrow’s real-life pregnancy to make a story on the show. They made her character, Phoebe Buffay, have a surrogate pregnancy.
In the show, Phoebe’s half-brother, Frank Buffay Jr., comes to visit her. He tells her that his girlfriend Alice can’t have babies, so Phoebe offers to carry the baby for them. This means Phoebe becomes pregnant with triplets, and this whole story takes up most of season four and some of season five.
The show had an episode where the whole cast went to London, but Lisa Kudrow, who plays Phoebe, wasn’t there. This made fans curious about where she was in real life.
