Us Weekly: Jennifer Aniston is “doing everything she can to have a baby”

These are some more photos from Jennifer Aniston’s appearance at the Directors Guild Awards over the weekend – we discussed the photos and their significance on Sunday. While it was clear to me that the tabloids were full of it when they claimed Aniston was well into her second trimester, some of you second-guessed me. Some of you think that these photos – which do show Aniston with a slight weight gain – are proof positive that Aniston is either A) preggo or B) on fertility drugs to get preggo. You may be right – I think the fertility drug theory has legs. In any case, Us Weekly reports this week that Aniston is definitely On The Path To Babies. But first she and Justin Theroux have to settle into their new mansion.

Ever since she settled down with Justin Theroux, 40, Jennifer Aniston has had a one-track mind: “She is doing everything she can to have a baby,” a source says of the actress, who just turned 43. “That’s really what she and Justin want more than anything.”

The pair of eight months also want to be prepared – they recently snapped up an 8,500-square-foot mansion in LA’s Ble Air – and they’re eager to put their stamp on it.

“They’re going to do some work to it before moving in,” says the source. “It’s exciting because it will be a project they can do together.”

[From Us Weekly, print edition]

I go back and forth on Aniston and the state of her womb, obviously. I think Theroux is probably the “best” boyfriend she’s had in years, and he damn well makes a better candidate for “baby-daddy” than someone like John Mayer. But, do I really think Aniston even gives a crap about having babies? In the past, my answer was always “Hell no.” She likes her life – drinking, free time, dogs, vacations, working out. A baby might put a crimp in that. But I also think Theroux has changed Jennifer – and maybe babies are part of the plan now?

    it kinda looks like she is hold back some kind of emotion on those pictures

    • Mari says:

      She looks more like she doesn’t want to show her teeth for some reason. My sister dentist told me that people force their mouth close when they do nor want people see their smile. Haven’t seen more pics from the event, or maybe those photograpghs captured in bas poses.

  2. LeeLoo says:

    Jennifer Aniston should not be a mom. I mean really can you imagine Chelsea Handler as that poor kid’s godmother? Plus I just have visions of Jen teaching that kid about how to get through life as a victim.

    By the way, before the Jennifer Aniston supporters jump all over me and accuse me of being a Brangeloonie. I have my qualms with them too. Mainly about how they need to not share every detail of their life with the press. But I cannot stand (and never have been able to stand) Jen’s “woe is me” attitude and how the media always portrays her to be this victim.

    • whatthehell456 says:

      Thank you!! You took the words right off my laptop 🙂 Couldn’t agree with you more.

      • autumndaze says:

        @leeloo and wth456,
        I agree with the concerns on parenting when there are years of evidence of intense dedication to oneself. This does not mean she would make a poor mother, however.
        I guess my primary issue with Aniston is the weekly if not daily photo ops coupled with the fact that she hasn’t any discernible talent.
        I don’t know anything about her, am not invested in either her or the Jolie-Pitts; but at least there is talent in the Jolie-Pitt camp.
        Flame on, people! This post will ignite!

      • Heine says:

        Autumndaze: What daily photo ops? Until the Director’s Guild awards (which she went to because she was nominated) there had been one new picture since well before Christmas. And that picture was the one at a screening that looked like it had been taken on someone’s cell phone. There were no photos of her skiing. No photos of her New Years plans (whatever they were).

        So, no. No daily photo ops. No weekly photo ops. I don’t know why people say she’s always being photographed when the evidence points to the fact that she isn’t.

        Thinking someone is talented is subjective, of course. I think she’s a talented comedic actress. She’s not the best at drama but comedic timing and physical comedy are extremely difficult to get right so I think she’s quite talented at that.

      • autumndaze says:


        There have been very few photos between last Christmas and now, which is why so many are speculating that she is possibly pregnant. We were used to seeing her a great deal more often.
        Her career extends significantly further back than this Christmas, however, and historically there were weekly photo ops and at times, daily.
        If the definition of talent means that you can play the same person in every role over and over again, then you are correct.
        She is very talented. ;0)

    • Reel Wheel says:

      I’m not a major fan of either “side” of this long standing MEDIA feud- and the fact that there are “sides” to this is in and of itself quite laughable. But, if we are going to call a spade a spade, the playing field between these two “sides” has always been uneven – heavily weighted in the Pitt/Jolie “side” who have the looks, movie studios and heavily pushed humanitarian agenda behind them. Big whoop. Jennifer is the “girl next door victim” and Angelina Jolie is the “femme fatale with the heart of gold” and Brad Pitt is….actually, I’m not even sure what he is…he’s pretty much the equivalent of the teddy bear the two archetypes above are fighting about. He’s the Archie to the Betty and Veronica – the guy I still can’t figure out what all the fuss is about…

      As you say “the media portrays her as the victim”. Big Whoop. So the media portrays this woman as a “victim” and, if she’s savvy (which I think they all are), she uses that to her advantage. Again, big whoop.

      I am the total opposite of Jennifer Aniston, with kids and daily grind job etc., but I could give a crap about what choices she APPEARS makes, how she APPEARS to live her life or the games played between her and the media.

      I can say the same for Pitt and Jolie.

      What I can’t figure out is why people so vehemently hate either side – but seem to especially hate Jennifer Aniston – which to me amounts to hating a MEDIA image. So, I guess in this way, the MEDIA has been very successful – because they seem to make a lot of people actually CARE.

    • Eleonor says:

      I don’t care about Jennifer Aniston, but I find saying someone “shouldn’t be a mum” unfair. Being superficial is not a good reason for not being a mum.
      Look at Nichole Richie, before being a mother she was bff with Paris Hilton, and now she is a totally different person.

      • Sara says:

        I have to agree with you. I get really annoyed with people who say others shouldn’t have children. Who are you to judge?

    • Wow says:

      How dare you say to any women that she should not be a mother (unless she is abusive)?!

      She has funny and entertaining friends, and that’s your excuse for saying something so offensive?

      A women who went through her husband cheating and leaving her 2 seconds before she hits the 40 years old mark, is definitely a hard time and she will be able to teach her child that she found a good guy and was able to pick herself up and have a family.

      It sounds like you don’t want her to move on and rebuild her life.

      • kira says:

        WTF? Her husband left her like 7-8 years ago when she was in her mid-30’s not “2 seconds before 40”!

        She went through a hard time?

        Oh please! She went to the Vanity Fair and cried her eyes out for PR. Then, continued to ride that gravy train, name-dropping Brad/Angelina for yrs. She beat that dead horse so much even CNN called her on those lame PR tactics.

        Found a “good guy”?

        Right. She cheated with a guy who was in a 14 year live-in relationship. There are pics of them dating in May of last year. His girlfriend moved out in the middle June and releases a statement noting the over-lapping timeline, and she also said she won’t say more unless the two cheaters talk about her first.

        Yep, she’s an amazing woman who has overcome such hardships and the true horrors of life–eyeroll–.
        When will her fans stop creating this crazy story of victimhood and survival for this woman?

      • Josephina says:

        Your ENTIRE response reeks of victim hood….AND irresponsiblity, and lack of understanding why the demise of ANY marriage actually occurs. Aniston’s divorce did not send her into a toilet bowl to be flushed away. She’s fine, damn it, and it’s about time people start believing her when she says she is happy.

        Her choices AFTER her divorce say the most about who she really is. You should accept her for who she is AS SHE IS TODAY and stop pontificating about what never occurred. Brad was NOT the love of her life, and she said as much WHILE she was married to him.

        He left her just before 40, huh? So it’s his fault that she does not have children today? Do you really think that if she had a child, they would still be together today? Shouldn’t there be a functional relationship existing BEFORE you have kids?

        Clearly Brad and Jen were not on the same page about many issues, having children was only ONE of them, yet somehow you expected that marriage to survive? Have you NOT been listening to ANY of Brad’s latest interviews where he clearly explains his position in the marriage? GMAFB.

        She was with the man for 7.5 years and NO baby. I am sure there were discussions and attempts but nothing came of it. Now we know why. They were not right for each other. Moving on….

    • jensational says:

      Ppfft, so she shouldn’t be a mom because of chelsea handler?! what makes you think the baby will have her for a godmother, or anyone else for that matter? If people shouldn’t have babies because of who their friends may or may not be, there wouldn’t be many babies born, don’t ya think?

      • Tara says:

        Well said. I think she wanted to have at least one baby. When the family unit thing didnt seem happening she bode her time exercising drinking and hanging out with party people. That will probably change if she has a baby.

    • BELLA says:


      • Sunny says:

        For the love of tebow!!!! wtf has this woman done to all of you?!?! U all sound crazy and bitter….. Jus let her be……. Noone knows if she wants a kid or not, only her!! It IS her business!! Maybe she has been vague about it because she does not believe its any of our business?!? Just because a tabloid printed this makes it gospel? Ugh! It’s a friggin tabloid…..why is everything printed about her true? But for others u demand proof?!? Ugh x10

    • LeeLoo says:

      I will defend my comment. There are a million reasons Jennifer Aniston should not be a mother that I didn’t feel the need to list. Sure motherhood changes you but in Jen’s case I think it would change her for the worse. I think she would be that celebrity mom we all hated who trots her kid out for their daily photo op. Lastly, her high maintainence demands, Jennifer Aniston is notorious for being ridiculosly high maintainence in relationships and pitches a fit when she doesn’t get her way (remember when she got shot down by Bradley Cooper? Yeah). So what happens when her kid does what kids do and exercises free will? I don’t see Jen being able to handle that very well.

      So yeah, she’d probably be a functional mom but what she would ultimately have is another messed up Hollywood kid. And I am so done with messed up Hollywood spawn. So yeah, I don’t think she should be a mother.

      Also do any of you honestly believe her relationship with Justin is going to work out? I doubt those stories of her having problems is true but let’s be real. Who has the most to benefit from this relationship? Who’s going to get kicked to the curb when he’s gotten everything he can out of her? If they have a kid I guarantee you it will be Halle and Gabriel all over again and I am so sick of hearing about Halle and Gabriel.

  3. Isadora says:

    That face! I just can’t find it attractive. I took a poll of my make mates and they agree. Hopefully she isn’t looking fir a 25 yr old Australian boy next.

    • Tapioca says:

      Yes, but that’s a big part of why she’s popular – because she’s got average genes, but learned to make the best of herself and landed the hottest guy in Hollywood (when he was the hottest guy in Hollywood) in the process. She’s what you or I could look like if we had a nose job, a professional blow-dry and a super-healthy lifestyle.

      Only Charlize Theron can look like Charlize Theron, but JA is achievable, dammit!

      Unless you think only the genetically-blessed have a right to be famous?

      • Isadora says:

        Of course that is not what I;m saying. That is ridiculous as me asking you if your saying that you need a ‘nose job and professional blow dry’ to be considered beautiful.

        I’m just baffled at how she became such a popular entertainer when she is so bland (in both aesthetics and personality). Surely that is not something to aspire to.

      • Tapioca says:


        Bland is money! She’s “relatable” and demonstrated good-enough acting chops and comic-timing to become arguably the lead character in one of the most successful TV shows ever, so her films generally make money – even if they’re panned by the critics – which is why she’s still getting work.

        It’s the same reason porn generally features average-looking men.

      • Josephina says:

        Very well said, Tapioca.

        I have always thought that she dresses neatly, is well-groomed and takes care of herself. That does not make her a beauty. We know she wants to be a movie star and has sacrificed everything to get the status. She still has an acting coach.

        But she is not on the level of Elizabeth Taylor, Katherine Hepburn, Sophia Loren, Meryl Streep, Marilyn Monroe, Bridget Bardot, Angelina Jolie, Charlize Theron, Kate Winslet, Julia Roberts, Anne Hathaway, Penelope Cruz…ie, she is not as versatile in range in acting, even after 20 years of “film work,” nor is she glamorous nor genetically blessed as the aforementioned.

        There is a lot of competition in the romcom department. Aniston should be compared to Sandra Bullock, Sarah Jessica Parker, Reese Witherspoon, Katherine Heigl, Cameron Diaz, Kate Hudson, Jessica Alba and newcomer Kristen Wig. Being attractive is not enough, you have to be very talented in the face of a large pool of talented, pretty actresses. Even here these women will be offered roles before she will.

        BTW, watch out for Jessica Chastain. She is pretty, very talented and in just about every movie that is in the theatres.

      • Heine says:

        Isadora: She’s popular because she was Rachel on Friends. She was the most popular character on the most successful show on American television. She parlayed that into a movie career.

        For some she isn’t bland. I think she’s funny, and seems like she is really nothing like the media portrays her to be. Plus, as Tapioca says, she’s relatable. She isn’t astonishingly beautiful. She’s attractive and has a great figure and pretty hair. She has great casual style and seems like she likes to have fun. She seems like she’d be fun to hang out with.

      • Heine says:

        Josephina: There is no shame in having an acting coach and continuing to try to work on and improve your craft.

      • Josephina says:


        No, there is nothing wrong with working with an acting coach. But, considering 15-20 years of film work PLUS acting on a very popular and successful TV comedy series from which 90% of your notoriety comes, some lessons should already have been mastered.

        What am I really saying? It is up to the actor to breathe life into the character that they play. She has had many opportunities, at this point, to ignite the roles that she already has played and none of her film roles were remarkable.

        When the movies ends, we don’t remember her lines, that she was in it or what she said.

      • Heine says:

        Gah, comment fail.

      • Heine says:

        Josephina: So why bring it up like it’s a negative if there is nothing wrong with it?

        ‘She still has an acting coach.’ So? She’s continuing to work on her acting as many actors do. Acting is not just something you master and then you never work on it. There are always things to work on-like your voice or hearing yourself or feeling yourself in a new character.

        You not remembering her doesn’t mean no one remembers her, clearly, since she keeps getting parts.

  4. Isadora says:

    That face! I just can’t find it attractive. I took a poll of my male mates and they agree. Hopefully she isn’t looking for a 25 yr old Australian boy next.

  5. watchingyoubitchh says:

    Close up are not your friend aniston .such a manly face

  6. Courtney says:

    Us Magazine are Idiots if they think the public believe Jennifer Aniston is doing everything she can to have a child she’s not the maternal type at all what so ever and at this point she’d be more likely to have twins than a single baby anyway. with mutiple pregnancy comes more chances for life threatenning complications like a hernia gestational diabetes and toximia which lead to a medically neccessary c-section delivery weeks earlier than actual due date and the babies spending time in the Nicu ask Mariah Carey who is 13 months younger than Jen and due to those complications and more had to deliver her beautiful twins Moroccan & Monroe at 35 weeks after being on bed rest from 22 weeks because they kept trying to come earlier than they were suppposed to which also meant she was on daily steriod injections to keep them in but thankfully now 9 months later they’re healthy and thriving

      Punctuation is your friend.

      • Noi says:

        is this for school
        is this for work
        no right so why should he/she punctuate
        comments like this are annoying

      • Heine says:

        Noi- Because you want to be properly understood. I didn’t even fully read that comment because it was a mess.

      • Sophie says:


        Trying to read through incomprehensive word soup is pretty annoying. No one’s getting graded and I don’t judge anyone over typos or mistakes. But grammatical rules exist so that we can properly organize and effectively communicate our thoughts to others. A block of words TOTALLY devoid of punctuation reads like the scrawlings of a crazy person. But if we’re being real, it’s entirely possible that was from a crazy person, given the number of overinvested nutbars on all sides of this saga.

  7. samira677 says:

    I know sites posts stories because they get hits but it’s annoying that every day “Jennifer is pregnant”, “Brad and Angelina are breaking up”, “Lindsay Lohan is a mess” are posted. It’s not even as if the details are different. Yes I know if I don’t like it don’t read it.

  8. Toot says:

    Everytime I see her I see one of the Real Housewives of Orange County. Her look is the same as theirs.

    She is just so average.

  9. says:

    Oh for f*ck’s sake, get knock up already so we can move on to something else!

  10. lem says:

    i’ve suspected for quite a while now that JA was putting off having kids until she found someone she thought it would work with (including Brad). Maybe she’s finally on board with having babies because she feels like she’s got a guy who will be around forever? I dunno– she’s harmless in my opinion and if she’s preggo, awesome. If she’s just gaining some weight and relaxing her workouts, kudos as well.

    • Deltona lakes says:

      Are you talking about Mariah Carey because I don’t apply those same sentiments to JA. Didn’t she date Vince and John just as long?
      I mean she’s 43 years old, she doesn’t have much time to spare
      What happen to that 5yr plan to be married with kids back in 2005?

      • lem says:

        I’m not sure what you are referring to with MC (honestly, i’m just clueless) but my only response is that plans don’t always work and you made my point– maybe she knew those guys weren’t going to work in the long run, and therefore wasn’t about to rush into having a baby with someone that wasn’t right.

    • deltona lakes says:

      You’re absoutely right. Plans do change and what you may say one year may not apply the next or 5 years later. All I’m saying is that Mariah Carey is quoted as saying she always wanted babies but until she met Nick Cannon she didn’t consider it with other men she dated.
      Since you brought Brad in the mix along with the 5 other men she’s dated since they divorced I just thought I would bring up her comments from 7 years ago. See, people like to comment about things Angelina said over a decade ago when she was in her early-mid 20’s, pre-UNCR, Pre-adopting Maddox,Pre-Brad and more kids but no one wants to bring up what JA said in her late 30’s.
      It’s glossed over..She can change her mind, plans changed.

    • deltona lakes says:

      We are talking about people changing plans in their lives. However, it’s only reserved for JA.

      • lem says:

        Then yes I guess similar to MC. Everyone seems to think bc she didn’t have babies with Brad it means she does want them. I just don’t think that’s entirely fair to say.

        I don’t mean that you said this — its just an observation from reading gossip blogs over the years

      • Heine says:

        Actually, deltonalakes, Aniston regularly gets held to the things she’s said years and years ago. She’s allowed to change her mind or change her plans just like anyone else. I don’t understand your point.

        Are you saying that Jolie and Carey get their comments from years ago brought up and they are held to them and Aniston doesn’t?

        If that is the point, that is patently ridiculous. Aniston is constantly being hounded, on this very thread, about stuff she’s said in the past and not followed through on.

        Everyone is allowed to change their plans for life. Everyone is allowed to change their opinions and feelings and thoughts as they live their lives.

    • deltona lakes says:

      @ Heine
      That’s exactly what I’m saying. If JA decided to change her plans to get married and have kids so be it. But lets extend that same coutesty to other actors that change their plans. Ie. Brad and Angie regarding marriage.
      I had never heard about about JA other than her hair from women in my office back in late 90’s. She peaked my interest when she starting dating and eventually Marrying Brad. But I never followed them as couple.
      So I have no clue what she said during those years.

  11. toto says:

    another scenario for pity party despite the truth?
    14 years he did not want children now Mr. hipster want some? get real

    • sukienow says:

      they is an old article he did years ago where he said he might like to eventually have kids someday …. he didnt rule it out, but he did seem in a hurry about it either

      • Paloma says:

        He had an interview with Diane Sawyer in which he stated he really wanted a child and seemed to shed a few tears. This was right before Jolie. I think part of the attraction of Angelina was the fact she had a little boy without a father.

  12. amanda says:

    Maybe she doesn’t want kids. Maybe she will do something cool and adopt as a single mom like Sheryl Crowe. There are options in life other than desperately trying to pop out a child before the clock runs out!

  13. Sisi says:

    I think she’s comfortable in her relationship, gained a few pounds because she let herself go (in a good way, she looks less severe now imo) and that’s it. No pregnancy, no attempt at pregnancy. Nothing newsworthy.

    • Happymom says:

      I’m with you. I will be totally shocked if she does end up having a child. It just doesn’t seem like something she wants-but that’s fine. If sunning, working out, partying, being in crummy romcoms is your thing-go for it.

    • Paloma says:

      I honestly do not see any difference in her except maybe her arms are not as toned. She had better be working on a child now if she really wants one. Her age mitigates against a successful conception and pregnancy.

  14. ruby says:

    I just see a discrepancy between what her fans and tabloids want to see (omg behbies !!) and what JA wants for herself. She has never seemed that fussed about having kids. She regularly gives quotes and interviews saying she’s not particularly eager “it will come when it will come” which is really non committal, and at her age if she doesn’t actively make lots of efforts chances are slim that she’ll just conceive with that sort of attitude. I’m not criticizing her in any way : it’s her life and her choice to make, and I suspect she loves things just the way they are.

    tl;dr people should stop shoving their baby fantasies on her, it obviously isn’t her priority in life and there’s nothing wrong with that.

    (Veiny feet 😮 And her foundation doesn’t match her skin tone, she looks like she’s wearing a mask)

  15. Marjalane says:

    I wonder if this Justin guy knew what he was signing up for with J.A.. I’m sure it’s probably good for his “career”, (does he have one?) but being newly “in love” with a 42 year old who’s all, “Hey! I needs to get pregnant NOW” has got to be a little weird. I agree with the fertility drug theory. My friends who took them got kind of chubby/puffy depending oin how long they took them.

    • sukienow says:

      of course he has one.
      this is a guy that fox network just brought his animation series, he co-wrote rock of ages which is coming out this year.
      he co-wrote and apparentely would be directing zoolander 2 soon, and also wrote the screen play for a movie staring ben stiller and vince vangh which would go into production soon.

      the man clearly has his own career

      • spinner says:

        He has a great career & he’s hot. They make a good match. I am not concerned if they procreate or not.

      • deltona lakes says:

        He’s so great. But, no one heard of him before or he was never mentioned in mainstream media before he dated JA.
        BTW, he’s not hot, he’s creepy looking.
        But that’s subjective.

      • Marjalane says:

        What are you? His agent?

    • Wendy says:

      @deltona: I’m sure you’ve never heard of quarks, red shifts or blue shifts either and possibly have no idea who Stephen Hawking is. Doesn’t mean any of them don’t exist, it just means that unless you interest yourself in the field that includes them, you won’t have heard of them. I’ll bet that 99% of us wold be hard pressed to name one successful scriptwriter without looking it up on Google. Who did the script (as opposed to the book) for Gone With The Wind? To Kill A Mockingbird? Any of the Stephen King movies?

      We all know who Kim Kardashian, Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton are, does that mean they have successful careers? How many of us can name off the top of our heads who wrote “Black Swan” or “The King’s Speech”?

      Yeah, so whether you, me or Mr. Magoo have heard of a behind the scenes person has no impact or measure on their success or not. It only highlights our own ignorance whereby we think that if we haven’t heard of it, it doesn’t matter. And by “our” and ” we”, I mean you. Because obviously if I’m making this comment, it’s because I get it.

      • Lucy says:

        thats true, but maybe he wanted the fame (as in the public knowing his name, media following him) that he did not have in his successful Hollywood career…

      • deltona lakes says:

        Yes, I don’t know every screenwriter in HW. However, the last thread on this subject you implied that he’s a very sucessful screenwriter and has made upwards to $20 mil for Ironman.
        So, if that’s true we would have heard of him. Like Aaron Sorkin, Steve Zallian.
        But what I gather you hadn’t heard of either until he started dating JA and you pulled up his IMDB.
        BTW, I have heard of Stephen Hawking since there’s been several TV specials over the years highlighting his life.
        Most recent special on The History Channel.

    Nice hair extensions

  18. Maritza says:

    If she can’t get pregnant she can always pay a surrogate, I’m surprised she hasn’t done that by now because it seems to be the new thing among celebrities.

  19. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    Maybe people are more eager to see what she would look like pregnant. Do the yoga everyday route or binge a la J Simpson route? hmmm…

  20. Wow says:

    What makes you think she doesn’t want kids?

    She didn’t have a normal/ good boyfriend for years, her husband left her right when it was time to have some kids, so most normal women would try to find a partner first, before they have kids.

    I think she really wants to have kids and is at least trying.

    I hope its not too late for her.

    To be abandoned by your husband 2 seconds before you are 40, is cruel.

    Having to see him with his lover splashed all over the magazines, on the beach and everywhere is really humiliating and must have been painful.

    I have no idea how she managed to even date after going through that.

    This guy looks like a nice guy. I hope it works for them and that they will get to start a family soon.

    That is a great inspiration for women to see that you can find love and have kids at 43, even if your husband cheated on you and humiliated you in public.

    I love it that women can see that a good guy can come along and offer you love and a family.

      oh God not again with this….

    • Overrated says:

      Meh, I would totally believe her and Brad had serious problems way before Angie came into the picture. Jen had how many? Seven years with her ex husband? Plenty of time to have had a kid then. To me she gives the “kids? no way” vibe.

    • islandgirl says:

      7 years has passed already. Let it go honey

    • islandgirl says:

      And she had 7 years to find a man and have babies. Stop pitying this woman

    • ruby says:

      Read her own interviews before putting words in her mouth. You’ll see she is really vague and non-committal, and clearly says there is nothing in the plans and she isn’t particularly trying.

      • Paloma says:

        I agree with the vagueness. She is being savvy and knows keeping the child issue alive brings attention to her.
        I think she does not want to end up being a single mom with a child; the situation in which she grew up.

    • Julia says:

      What makes you think she doesn’t want kids?
      Because she said during her marriage to Brad that he will be lucky if she gives him even one child.

      So according her own quoteS, ONE child was already too much to ask for her, and children in plural something out of question.

      Don’t undesrtand why she married someone who publicly claimed he wanted children even during his Gwyneth days, someone she dated two years to know where he stands in that dealbreaker questionb before marrying him when she knEw firsthand that one child was already too much of a sacrifice for her, let alone several.

      May think someone got punk’ed and emotionally cheated it when it cpomes to that babies question and it ain’t Aniston!

    • Josephina says:

      She “did not have” a good boyfriend?

      He “left” her just before 40?

      Can you say “pity party”… “victimhood?” Ugh!!!

      She picked those fools, these “loser” boyfriends. Who would ever say John Mayer is a good catch? Blame Aniston for getting on that train in the first place, getting dumped and then returning only to get dumped again. How about Vince Vaughn, Paul Sculfor, Gerard Butler? It’s their fault too, huh? Again, people, ACCEPT Aniston for making poor choices in the men department, INCLUDING Brad.

      She needs to pick a man who loves her for who she really is, who wants to spend and plan the rest of his life with her.

  21. ladybert62 says:

    I think she wants that elusive ring before she has any baby – even then, if you are so determined to have one, adopt.

  22. Carol says:

    If she wanted kids, she would have had one by now. She chose a career over a family and that’s one of the reasons Brad moved on. I remember seeing him in an interview while they were married, saying how much he wanted children and with tears in his eyes, spoke about his love for baby girls. Jenn is 43. Does she not know the implications of having a baby this late in life? Miscarriages are much more likely to occur, eggs are old, and complications while pregnant are very high. There is nothing wrong with not wanting children. I’m just tired of hearing how much she has wanted them for years & years.

    • ahoyhoy says:

      Right when ‘Friends’ was ending, She & Brad did an interview and she BALKED when asked if now she would try to give Brad the kids he had been waiting for, since she had publicly at least claimed that her t.v. role was the reason they were waiting. You could see the sadness & confusion in Brad’s face when she was so non-committal. I think it was on Oprah, but it was so long ago (ahem).

      When I saw it, I knew she didn’t want kids (not as much as a big film career), and if Brad was smart, he’d leave. Her stammering answer to the baby question and the look on Brad’s face—I knew that marriage was over.

      • allenpoe says:

        Brad and Jen NEVER did any interview together at that time and she NEVER “balked” about kids. Go back and watch her interviews on Oprah in November 2003, Primetime with Diane Sawyer in January 2004, Friends ending special with Matt Lauer in May 2004 and Oprah Friends Farewell in May 2004. She repeatedly says how much she a) wants children, and b) that she and Pitt are trying. She actually told Oprah in 2003 that if she could she would have a baby right then and there on the set.

        I have no idea what Brad and Jen’s problems were and don’t care. But this revisionist history that his fans have of their time together and the topic of children infuriates. If you go back and read and watch interviews of theirs during the marriage and shortly thereafter you will see that it was Pitt that consistently said he wasn’t ready for kids when they first got married and “wanted Jen to himself a little longer.” In 2003/2004 they BOTH started talking seriously about children. They BOTH said they had set aside a room as a nursery in their home, and in People in April 2004 Jen said they were actively trying to get pregnant. Pitt confirmed this to Oprah in May 2004 and in Marie Claire in fall 2004. Whether they had trouble getting pregnant or keeping pregnancies, we have no idea (and simply because they never publicly talked about that doesn’t mean it wasn’t an issue).

        What we do know is that they never had a kid together, and they split in early 2005. After that time Pitt stated twice that the idea that Jen didn’t want kids was “utter BS.” She has also said that the most hurtful rumors about her were the ones that she didn’t want a child.

        Since they are the only two people who were in that marriage perhaps people on both “sides” of this ought to believe them that they know what did and did not go down between them.

      • Anni says:

        I remember all of this as well. I don’t think it was necessarily that she didn’t WANT kids but she was very vocal about it not being the right time for her and Brad was very much eager to start a family. I don’t think these people who claim otherwise were paying attention to celebrity gossip back then. I was 16 and I remember being all “why won’t this crazy woman give him babies, he’s gorgeous”.

    • Toot says:

      I agree. Brad was always talking about wanting a big family and Jennifer was wishy washy about even two and wanted to work on her film career. Add into that they were both getting older and I can see the rift happening the longer the delay. I understand Jennifer claiming she wanted to concentrate on her career but still wanted kids, but I also won’t knock Brad because he realized he was already in his 40s and he probably wanted to be active with his future children so he moved on.

      Jennifer made the decision that was best for her, and Brad made the decision that was best for him. They both got what the wanted so people should move on, but I know they won’t.

  23. Jen34 says:

    I get offended by all this womb watching. The media really ought to piss off. Nobody’s fertility should be scrutinized as much as JA’s has been.

  24. Julia says:

    The way she publicly used to mock her then husband decorating a nursery or wanting children “He will be lucky if he has one” famous sentence makes me beleive that this woman is not he motherly nuturing type.

    The way she told a few years back that it was a misery for a parent to birth a not beautiful baby or something along the line convinced me that this woman has zero motherly instinct when she infer her own shoking view about abies and how mothers feel.

    No mum, no mum to be, no woman who want a child will even think about that. All a woman think of is having a healthy baby.

    I think it’s other people, especially the nostalgic of the fake golden couple who have lived that marriage iby proxy n a fairytale Barbar Cartland love story type thinking about little Jens, when at the time Jen was mocking her own husband’s eagerness to have children, are the ones who infer those so called baby penchant that Aniston has never, ever from her own quotes and behaviour shown.

    She is not mother material and has never been committed to that. Ain’t nothing wrong with that. Just stop infering some maternal instinct in her.

    As long as there is no baby news from her, i will just beleive that she let herself go to her former natural chubby self…her true self without diet and exercises !

    • Asli says:


    • Tapioca says:

      Women have had abortions for trivial aesthetic reasons like cleft palates – who wouldn’t want a beautiful baby who’ll sail through life on their looks?

      If you don’t think people are cruel about children, think about how many celebrity kids are called variations of “unfortunate looking” on this site alone!

      • Julia says:

        Again, no woman who has a maternal instinct will say that she will be miserable if her bab to be is not beautiful.

        A woman who has baby instinct will say that she will be miserable if her baby is NOT healthy before she even think about looks, let alone telling it to the world.

        You can say whatever you want, all quotes of Aniston regarding children, the ironic, sometimes shoking way she said those things are not quotes a motherly wsoul will say.

        If a woman during her marriage time already admit while laughing at her husband face saying he want children that he will be lucky if she gives him even one, then that wolman has demonstrated without a doubt that she is not into babies. If you marry, it’s for the long haul and if at that stage you almready feel that one child would be too much to ask for you, trhen you are not into cxhildren, period !

        You don’t use that type of rehtoric Aniston used about babies if you have the slightest penchant for children, and you certainly don’t talk publicly saying something out of nowhere about a baby looks before his/her health in relation to how miserable a motrher would feel.

        She just infered her own immature, totally unmotherly feelings about children looks before their health. No mother to be does that, ever.

    • mln76 says:

      I think that comment about having a ‘beautiful baby’ had more to do with her famous insecurity about her looks and the fear that her kid would come out with her pre-surgery features. A person with crippling insecurity can sometimes be a good mother but on the other hand they can screw up their kids colossally. Maybe (This is JUST MY OPINION) she doesn’t want the kids whether consciously or subconsciously because doesn’t want to project that kind of stuff onto her kids???

    • allenpoe says:

      Please stop lying about things she did not say.

      I have no idea if she is or isn’t trying for a child. But I do know she has ALWAYS maintained that she wants children.

      No one on here knows what type of mother she would be, but several of her friends and co-workers over the years have commented about how maternal she is. This idea that because she likes the sun, or hanging with friends she can’t possibly be a good mother is insane. Most people live different lives before and after children, so if it’s something she wants and is trying for, who’s to say she won’t take to it like most other new mothers do?

      • mln76 says:

        She definitely said the ‘he’ll be lucky if he has one’ comment on Oprah go to Youtube it’s there.
        There are many maternal and caring people who don’t have children.

      • Heine says:

        Mln76: It was clearly a joke. It boggles the mind why people trot out that quote like she was deadly serious.

      • mln76 says:

        @Heine I don’t like how Jen gets beat up for not wanting kids but there was a striking difference between Brad stating rather emotionally that he wanted at least 7 and Jen caustically saying he’d be lucky to get one. It seemed like one of those ‘funny’ moments that is rather telling of the actual state of the relationship.

      • Tiegan says:

        I think she said “he’d be lucky to get two”, which is one more than I’d ever have myself. Not being a broodmare for your husband because he wants ‘a soccer team’ of kids isn’t a crime.

        God, are we in the 50s? Does her vote count for nothing? If he wanted to pull a Dugger and have 20, does she not get a say? This thinking is so gross.

      • mln76 says:

        I’m not saying she should be a broodmare for her husband. NEVER HAVE. BUT if two people aren’t agreeing on having children (which they weren’t) it’s a sign of a fundamental incompatibility.

      • Tiegan says:

        So if Jolie won’t give him a seventh kid, they’re fundamentally incompatible too? It was the AMOUNT of children they disagreed on publicly, and everything else that happened privately is pure speculation.

        I get why people prefer to say she never wanted kids, and that poor Brad was tricked from the start while she cackled behind his back and downed contraceptive cocktails. It makes the Brange look less bad, but it’s just selective thinking.

        Relationships are all about compromise and it works both ways, it’s not making sure you keep your other half happy all the time at your own expense.

      • Heine says:

        Mln76: she did not ‘caustically’ say anything. She was clearly joking. Like, really clearly joking. I can see it in my mind’s eye. But I might be wrong. I’ve been trying to look it up but I don’t know the year in which she said it. All the Oprah videos are recent and I’m not slogging through a bunch to prove a meaningless point. If you can give me a handle on when she said it or provide a link to the video, I’d be glad to be proven wrong.

      • mln76 says:

        @Heine like many Oprah videos it’s no longer there (she don’t like youtube ;)). I’d say if it were one ‘joke’ of Jen’s that it would be something but there are several odd comments about their marraige from both of them that indicate they weren’t on the same page on a lot of things. At a certain point you get the picture that no matter what amount of care or affection they may have had for eachother they didn’t want the same things out of life which is the real reason why it didn’t work out.

        Hopefully Justin and Jen want the same things whether or not that future includes children.

      • Heine says:

        Mln76: Hey, you said it was there-‘She definitely said the ‘he’ll be lucky if he has one’ comment on Oprah go to Youtube it’s there.’

        So I checked and it wasn’t. And you are clearly misquoting her because I also looked up that comment, in a few iterations, and it never came up either.

        So unfortunately I am going to conclude that you either don’t know what you’re talking about or this is another one of those misquotations that Brangeloonies hold as true in order to despise Aniston like the ‘I don’t do charity’ nonsense. I remember her saying something like that as a joke years ago. I have zero proof of this except what I remember and I’m cool with admitting that.

        Does anyone know the actual quote or when she said it? What the context was? How the joke actually came about? Because I don’t remember.

      • mln76 says:

        @Heine conclude whatever you want. I believe the ‘one maybe two’ comment was made on the Friends finale interview that she did on Oprah. Brad made taped a video and in it amoung other things he said he wanted 7 kids. Jen looked taken about and said something to the affect of ‘he’ll be lucky if he gets one maybe two.’ It made a big enough news at the time that Dianne Sawyer asked her about it in their interview which is on Youtube.

      • Heine says:

        Mln76: Yea, no. Just watched that whole group interview and she never said it-not in that interview anyway.

        Watched the Diane Sawyer interview as well and found out that the ‘Brad isn’t the love of my life’ quote is also crap. The quote about babies?

        Diane:’Is there still a duel about his seven and your two to three?’
        Jennifer:’Oh I think that that’s gotten blown way out of proportion. We’ll probably, you know, who knows? We’d definitely love to have two, at least…’

      • Shay Kay says:

        Well said Allenpoe! JA has never had any press that said she is falling out drunk at parties, getting arrested for drugs, getting “sources” say that she has substance abuse issues, and in fact seems to be an independant, responsible person who shows up for work and does her job. Now some people are going to question if she’d be a good mother based on the fact that as a single woman she enjoys her friends, her vacations, her work, and exercise. Wow I wonder what some people would have to say to reformed alocholics and drug addicts, people treated for mental illness and healthy, people with eating disorders but recovered having children?
        Probably nothing but “Good for them for getting help and I hope they stay healthy for their children”. People who don’t like JA really take things to another level that you just don’t encounter with most celebrities.

      • Dede says:

        @Heine idk about the baby quote but jenn dief said she didnt know if brad was the love of her life
        “Is he the love of my life?…I mean, I don’t know, I’ve never been someone who says, ‘He’s the love of my life.’ He’s certainly a big love in my life.” —Aniston to W, February 2003″

      • Josephina says:

        @mln 76 AND @ heine:

        Let’s keep this simple: What proof is there that Brad wanted to stay?

        It is ALL OUT now and there is nothing to defend. Brad wanted out. Brad stated he was depressed during his marriage.

        Aniston DID say, and I am paraphrasing, “one or two kids”…PLUS she made it a POINT to correct an interviewer and stated Brad was a love IN her life and NOT THE love of her life. My point? Both comments allowed viewers like myself and countless others to question her and showed a lack of cohesiveness between the two… right in front of the camera, for the world to see and judge…FAIR GAME.

        The end result– a divorce–should have been your sober moment of truth.

        Often married people keep their disagreements out of the camera’s eye. We know more about what Aniston and Brad did NOT have in common than what they actually had going for them. Brad took an axe to the “golden couple” illusion because he did not want to pretend anymore (his words.)
        BTW, all it takes is ONE to dissent in a relationship for it to break.

        I believe Brad when he said it reached a deadend for him. It is near impossible to keep a man that does not want to stay. His actions, statements, interviews and very engaged and consistent behavior towards his new life and family supports what he says.

        I don’t think there is anyone on this blog that believes they were a good match. Some of us could see it before Aniston.

        Brad is now fulfilling his dreams, living the life he wants, is very happy with his family and owns it.

        Again, let’s hope Aniston does a better job choosing a better mate that is suitable for her. And THAT is exactly how you own up to a failed marriage and MOVE ON.

      • Julia says:


        I will add that one must be blind or hypocrit to the core to not see right aWay the deep rift between those two.

        I mean couple counseling and therapy sessions are the LAST resort to save a marriage in DEEP, DEEP trouble. If you need a professional help to manage to go through a crisis that directly jeopardize your marriage then you have hit a deadend point where no compromise is possible and you are finding a last way to save what can be save.

        Aniston and Pitt went that route of counseling and therapy within a year into the marriage and it lasted two years ! what does that tells about the health of that marriage ?

        This plus the quotes BOTH said painting their non optimistic view about THEIR own marriage and how they see themselves in the future, always having opposing views on main subjects give more grounds to the deep discrepancies in needs and what was important in terms of personal project in life.

        7 years after their divorce it is even more prevalent that they were never into the same thing, Pitt chosing right away a woman who was into kids; Hell he was the one convincing Jolie to carry his children while she was just into adopting…he often make reference to her motherly side when telling what he loves most about her…the timing, the quickness into which he decided to adopt Jolie’s son and was often see playing with him, his cries when he first discovered Zahara’s picture, the rapidity with which he then pressured Jolie to carry his own children is more than revealing about his eagerness to become a father that was deeply rooted. Aniston at the same time chose notoriouss immature younger players instead of a father material type because that was never her priority while married, nor after that.

        Case closed.

      • Heine says:

        Josephina: Way to completely miss the point.

      • Maya says:

        Seriously? She could have had five children by now but she makes out like she is a poor little princess, needing a ‘man’ to have a ‘family’.
        Her behaviour so contravenes her supposed family values.
        A woman without a job, gets off her arse and gets fertility treatment, to become the ‘Octomom’, and yet Aniston has whined for the last few years or so, when she has the means (financially, etc) to have a child (even via adoption or a surrogate – like Kidman).
        But no, instead the publications are given the standard ‘I desperately want to have kids’ story.
        I don’t really care either way. Pushing out children doesn’t necessarily make someone a saint – raising children well proves more, in my view.
        What annoys me is that it seems that she feels that she has to say that in order to get approval.
        Yes, she can be maternal and not want children. Still though, I don’t think she wants children, or wanted children. If she did, she would have had a child by now, like January Jones, like Rod Stewart’s daughter, etc etc. So many examples.

  28. mln76 says:

    I guess she could be trying but I kinda doubt that either one wants kids. The girl likes the party life. She’s rich and she had a rocky relationship with her own mother. As mentioned above when married for several years she kept putting it off, she has all the resources to be a single parent. Some people just don’t want kids there’s nothing wrong with that.

    • allenpoe says:

      “She likes the party life” – what do you even mean by that? You never see Jennifer out at a club or a bar. You never hear about her partying. So she’s friends with Handler…she’s also friends with several other women and men who are parents (as is Handler). She and Justin have been out on double dates several times with parent couples, so they are just as or closer to these people then single friends.

      She and her mother are also on good terms now and have been since 2005. Other people (celebs included) have had rocky relationships with a parent, but I fail to see what that has to do with their ability to parent.

      From her own words, she’s always maintained she wants kids, but she has also said very clearly that she would prefer to have them with a partner. Maybe she is now in a position for that to be the case. Time will tell.

      • mln76 says:

        She isn’t just ‘friendly’ with Chelsea Handler she regularly goes on vacation with her…What do you think Jen knits in the corner while Chelsea snorts lines????

      • Heine says:

        I’m friends with some potheads and I don’t smoke pot. Just because someone you’re friends with likes something or does something doesn’t mean you do too. I also have a friend who is a recovering alcoholic but I drink alcohol. Does that mean she’s fallen off the wagon?

        Sorry but Chelsea doing whatever she does =/= Aniston doing the same things.

      • mln76 says:

        Pot isn’t the same as Coke. Have you ever spent time with a cokehead??? They aren’t people you voluntary vacation with unless you plan on partaking especially once you hit your 40’s the point when you don’t have time for other peoples’ B.S.

        Jen doesn’t just have one famous cokehead friend she has several. At a certain point a pattern forms. Now I don’t think she has a problem per se but I do think anyone who doesn’t think a girl who calls Handler, Joe Francis, and Sue Mengers BFFs doesn’t like to do some lines is a bit naive.

      • Heine says:

        Yes I have actually. Many people who I’ve come across working in the entertainment industry use cocaine, others are attempting to recover from addictions. You can’t swing a cat in this industry without hitting half a dozen people who have used or are currently using. I have never used cocaine and don’t want to because I’ve seen what it does to people.

        By the way, being a ‘cokehead’ and being someone who can function while using cocaine are two different things. I’ve seen people do lines and then go to work. I don’t get it and would never try to do that but there is such a thing as a ‘functioning’ cocaine user. They aren’t all jumping through plate glass windows and slapping themselves on the toilet.

        And yes, you can be in the company of cocaine and not use it. No one presses your face against the table and says ‘snort it!’ most users are glad you aren’t using so that there is more for them.

        EDIT: And is she actually friends with Joe Francis or does she just rent his house from time to time?

      • Tiegan says:

        I have several ‘cokehead’ friends and I’ve never touched the stuff, but then I don’t think previous drug use or lifestyles BC should be held against one if they want to have kids, do you?

        Edit @ Heine, that Joe Francis line is pulled out as evidence that she’s trash by association, which isn’t true at all. She rented his house many years ago and that’s all. I don’t think I’ve ever even seen a picture of them together.

      • mln76 says:

        OH PLEASE!!! Handler is so off the deep end with her substance abuse that even Courtney Love is calling her out. Chelsea isn’t just a work friend she’s a friend who she regularly is seen going to bars with and going on vacations with. I’m not saying Jen is herself in the throws of a major addiction but she’s long been rumored to throwdown. Now if she does want kids that would mean getting rid of toxic people like Handler and cutting back on her partying lifestyle. I personally don’t think that she wants to do that.

      • Heine says:

        Tiegan: Thanks for that-I don’t recall seeing any pictures of them together either.

  29. Lauren says:

    There is a lot worse than Jen, when it comes to mothering. Crackhead, alcoholic, welfare moms. Moms with mental illness, poverty. Jen is self sufficent, can afford to hire an Army of Nannies..i live in a wealthy suburban area (in probably the smallest house in the neighbourhood)…and believe me..there are much worse women than Jennifer. Their children come over to my small house because their mansions with housekeepers “have no food”. Meanwhile, their moms are tanned, botoxed, dyed to perfection and drive expensive vehicles. Selfishness is everywhere. I am quite certain Jen would buy her child food! Have some faith.

  31. Shay Kay says:

    If JA is on fertility drugs and trying to get pregnant than I would understand that she doesn’t want to advertise that information. If the fertility drugs don’t work and she can’t have children than the best option is to just be vague about wanting children now. I know some of you will totally disagree but IF she’s trying to get pregnant and can’t than I doubt she wants to answer questions about so sensitive a subject if things don’t work out. Please note that I am talking about what she may want NOW. I am in no way referring to her PAST.
    That said I would have to hear the “I’m on fertility drugs or I’m pregnant” from JA herself before I’d believe it. I feel like the time for wanting children may have passed for her and that’s just fine.
    Frankly I always wanted children but if I didn’t have them by 40 years old and was happy with my life I don’t think I’d consider having children at that age. Of course, JA would have more of the pleasures of motherhood without all the work (nannies, no money problems) but I can’t even imagine her lifestyle so that’s hard for me to factor as part of the decision. I also would never have considered being a single mother so I can understand that she’s waited on the right man with whom to have children if she is actually trying now.

      My uncle’s fiancée is around that age (definitely over 40) and she’s almost 4 months pregnant right now, without any fertility treatments (she was lucky, they just tried for around a year and finally got pregnant).

      That just goes to say it’s quite possible. Also, another obvious example is Michelle Duggar ?

      • Dee says:

        Its not IMPOSSIBLE but its rare. Get off the gossip blogs and read a medical journal once in a while or even the NYT which did a story last year about all the celebs who did a disservice to women pretending as if it was ok to wait to have a baby naturally in their 40s when most need IVF.

      • Adrien says:

        It’s easier for 40-something women to conceive if they have given birth in their 20s or early 30s. If they haven’t, it’s too risky, also there’s a huge chance the baby will have autism or Down’s syndrome.

    • allenpoe says:

      Tell that to Rachel Dratch and Jane Krakoski who both got pregnant naturally last year at the age of 44.

      • Dee says:

        How do you know their pregnancies were natural? Celebs don’t always say the truth , surprise, surprise!

      • Katherine says:

        Hee Hee, Dee.. I think we’re sharing a mind meld tonight. My first thought was how in hell does someone posting on CB know if Jane K. or Rachel D. got pregnant naturally? That’s really no one’s biz and I doubt they would admit to it. Can you imagine admitting that you’re child is not biologically yours? Not so sure I’d ever admit such a thing.

    • ruby says:

      @ Dee : Your answer is really funny because biology, especially mammalian biology is my field and my vocation and I have studied it for years now. So yes, ever since my childhood I have read medical publications for my own enlightenment and probably know a lot more on this subject than most people reading this blog.

      And yes in my free time I do read a couple of gossip blogs – and so do you apparently so I don’t see what makes you think you’re so above me ?

      Anyway the point I was trying to make – and that you missed entirely – was that what the person above posted was technically untrue : yes, it is possible for a 44 year old person to conceive a child from her own eggs. I used two real life examples to show this to people with no scientific background. Did I ever say conceiving so late was easy ? No, because I damn well know it isn’t, but that wasn’t relevant to the point I was making.

      It is really annoying to be told I don’t know about something when it’s actually my field and a subject I do know extensively about. Of course I know it’s very difficult for a woman over 40 to have biological children ! Implying otherwise is ridiculous.

      As for the whole “celebs do a disservice to women by giving them unrealistic expectations” subject well that may be but that has nothing to do with what I was discussing.

    • Katherine says:

      “She’s 43 — if she bears a child it’ll be with another woman’s egg.”

      Dee, you’re absolutely right about that. It isn’t about whether one can get pregnant at that age. That is another issue. The problem with a 43 year old’s eggs is that they are 43 years old. It’s not like sperm which is constantly reproducing itself. The risks of 43 year old eggs is quite high for neural tube defects as well as other birth defects. For someone who will probably have one child the temptation to make sure you have a healthy baby can be overwhelming. And who’s to know?

      I remember reading the NY Times article and others that said women weren’t even telling their husbands or partners about their use of someone else’s eggs. Which I found quite appalling.

      So I agree if she gets pregnant now or later then she’ll use someone else’s egg(s). It’s done all the time now.

    • Maya says:

      I disagree and agree.
      Most women who aren’t actresses or let’s say, those who don’t smoke (as Jennifer does) and party, as well as be on ongoing diets to maintain an unhealthy weight, have a better chance at pregnancy at 40, but still it’s a declining chance, but I wouldn’t say that all would need an egg donor.
      Yes, the chances decrease and the risks increase as well – if a woman is pregnant beyond forty, and has had children before, she may be at risk of premature labour, which is dangerous, in addition to the usual risks (Down’s Syndrome).
      But these celebrities aren’t the standard representation of the average woman. So in that sense, I do agree with you. Aniston, with the way she smokes (she says she has stopped recently, but as a former smoker, I can say that it takes smokers more than one attempt to get there) and smoked, her weight and her age: she’ll need a donor egg and a surrogate.

  33. Mac says:

    Forty-four does seem a tad late to be starting a family with a newborn child. She’d be into her 60s and the kid would still be in High School.

    Jennifer also has a history of Adult Somnambulism which probably isn’t conducive to raising a child if she intends to be the primary caregiver.

    • JudyJudyJudy says:

      my mum had my brother when she was close to 50. It wasn’t a party but he and she were fine.

  34. Sunny says:

    For the love of tebow!!!! wtf has this woman done to all of you?!?! U all sound crazy and bitter….. Jus let her be……. Noone knows if she wants a kid or not, only her!! It IS her business!! Maybe she has been vague about it because she does not believe its any of our business?!? Just because a tabloid printed this makes it gospel? Ugh! It’s a friggin tabloid…..why is everything printed about her true? But for others u demand proof?!? Ugh x10

  35. nan says:

    I would never even THINK of having a baby with a man whose forehead is the size of a football!!!

  36. Jess says:

    JA is the most boring “celebrity” on the planet. All she does with her fame is yoga and facials and blowouts. Kudos to all those above who point out how very average she is. I think she has to very strictly control her appearance and environment in order to pull off looking decent. (I once spoke to someone who worked with her assistant on a movie set, who related a story about how JA’s assistant had to return some Pinkberry froyo JA had ordered bc it had more than the THREE almonds she had requested as a topping. ‘Nuff said.). Anyway it will be fun to see her preggers (if she doesn’t go surrogate like Nicole Kidman) bc I think she will blow up like a blimp!

    • Reel Wheel says:

      why is it ALWAYS, someone spoke to someone about something and THEY SAID…blah blah blah blah blah…

      I don’t particulary care for Jennifer Aniston, but this woman gets more vitriol than any 4 celebrities combined! Including Victoria Beckham who (as far as I can tell) has actually done nothing but be married to a soccer player. Sorry, as far as I am concerned, there is no way in hell the Spice Girls count. LOL

      • autumndaze says:

        Oh, you are very wrong. Victoria Beckham is my favorite dress designer. Absolutely gorgeous dresses. Google them.

  37. skuddles says:

    I dunno about this story… Why would someone, in their right mind, try to have a baby with a partner they’ve only been with for 8 months? They’re still in the “getting to know you” stage… seems like a recipe for disaster if it’s true (and Aniston actually conceives).

  38. kelly says:

    She’s the one that picks out crappy boyfriends/poor dad material. I think her current fling is a crappy choice, too. Low morals…leaving a woman after 14 years and all of a sudden agreeing to have a baby – liking the new life he has in the camera and all the money.

    • Mac says:

      Jennifer obviously realized that Brad Pitt would be unsuitable to father her children.

      Perhaps there’s more to Justin Theroux than meets the eye.

      • pamela says:

        LOL, so that’s the spiel now…that Brad was not suitable to have her kids? OKKAAYY NOW. You people really amuse me at the lenghts you will go to to defend this woman. LOL.

      • Kara Ann says:

        Hey Pamela,

        I thought the one thing everyone could agree on is that it is a good thing that Brad and Jen didn’t have children together. 🙂
        School of thought on this may be different i.e. Brange fans think that Brad begged for children and Jen said no but that’s great because he’s better off with AJ and Jen fans think that since he cheated on her and/or was a pot smoking couch potato then she made a good call in realizing that they weren’t going to stay together.
        Either way, Brad wouldn’t have been a good father for HER children either because she didn’t/doesn’t want them or because he wasn’t into sticking around and she knew it.
        Hey, I’m just glad that she didn’t try to do a band-aid baby because I still don’t think he would have stuck around.

  39. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    When I saw that thumbnail, for a minute there, I thought I glimpsed Blake Lively twenty years from now.

  40. Cerulean says:

    I wish she would go away. I’m tired of her photo ops and bad movies. Her same hair and clothes. The same headlines.
    I don’t believe she wants children. Until I see a real baby bump I am not buying it.

  41. ccoop says:

    Jennifer dear, go buy a Birkin instead. They’re cheaper than a baby and you can park them in a closet at a party.

  42. Original Chloe says:

    U-um. No. I don’t see it happening. This – still VERY fresh – relationship was life-changing for them both (for different reasons) and I just don’t see them jumping into parenthood like that. He dumped his gf of 14 years less than a year ago, she – after repeatedly attaching herself to complete douchebags – seems to have found a guy who’s into her. I just don’t see the effort and potential complications of fertility treatments, in-vitro, a pregnancy and birth in this picture in the nearest future, unless the pregnancy happens by a total accident. I also think that if a baby was her priority, she’d already have one.

  43. meh says:

    wow! you people are crazy.. I’m glad you’re all stored safely way in cyberspace…

    Imagine having the entire world sit in judgement of your life and making comments about your life’s decision based on questionable articles in less than reputable tabloids…

    I don’t know who to feel more sorry for… you guys or Jennifer Aniston

    • spinner says:

      Hi meh…so nice to have a voice of reason here. I truly mean that. I can’t believe the level of hate for a person that no one on this thread knows personally. So many Moms on this thread that I am sure are trying to teach their children not to hate. To not hold bitter thoughts for others. You can only lie to your children for so long…they see & hear.

    • Profi says:

      speaking for the rest of us, it’s we who feel sorry for you, Meh – not knowing how to spell judgment at your age is all kinds of embarrassing!

      • Kara Ann says:

        Oh Profi,

        I’d rather have an intelligent post with a misspelled word (even several) then some of the other craptastic (not a real word) stuff that gets posted on here.

      • patw says:

        ??? She spelled it correctly actually. Profi – what are you on? nm – just ready your other posts. Explains it all.

  44. Original Chloe says:

    Side note:

    “The pair of eight months also want to be prepared – they recently snapped up an 8,500-square-foot mansion in LA’s Ble Air – and they’re eager to put their stamp”

    Ble Air?

    I think it sums up the quality of US Weekly reporting.

  45. ann h says:

    Jen having an acting coach is equivalent of being on a diet for 20 years and not losing any weight.

    • Heine says:

      Actually it’s more like a ballet dancer still doing barre work with a teacher or a singer doing warmups with a coach.

      They see things you don’t and are objective observers. And reinforcing the basics and fixing bad habits is very important.

  46. Profi says:

    she’s a self-absorbed, attention-starved, talentless, man-chinned, lumberjack-jawed, middle-aged skank. It should be illegal for her to reproduce in all 50 states.

  47. Elena says:

    I really want Jennifer Aniston to be happy. I’m not a faaaaan (I loved Friends but it’s as far as it gets) but I feel like people are being so judgemental it’s crazy!
    It’s like Brad found happiness so she has to be the evil witch in the story.

    I really don’t get the hate. Anyway…

    • Josephina says:





      A BABY?!?!

      • Profi says:

        Jen –
        If you already. were. happy. you wouldn’t feel the need to monitor these sights and post under fake names like Josephina with your caps lock on, wouldja dearie?

        Truly happy people don’t need to hire publicists to shout their happiness to the world; it comes from inside.

        Sorry, Jen, nobody’s buying it. In fact, we all think it just makes you look more pathetic (and we didn’t think that was possible).

  48. Barbara says:

    So sick of her overrated and overexposed ass! Can’t avoid seeing her..

    • patw says:

      uh yes you can. it’s called not clicking on the post.
      Aniston has been low key for the last two months – 2 blurry pap shots, and an industry event (which wasn’t even televised). How has she been overexposed compared to the rest of the celebs in CB posts today?

  49. CHRISTIAN_GIRL says:

    For those weak stories that maybe Brad was not being suitable to father her kids, but he WAS suitable for her to marry. What kind of sense does that make? Why even marry him?

    Brad seems to have proven his worth as a father to her YET proven capacity as a mother. Brad’s kids mother is the one and only Angelina Jolie. Really, no one else matters. Jen’s kids father will have to be someone/anyone else. That is the entire deck of cards on the table. She gets NO do overs and probably does not want one. That ship has sailed.

    As to Justin, again he still does not factor into the picture, no matter how many films he has a hand in writing, directing or acting. He is so not going to blaze a trail for Jen or her fans. He can’t be spun into greatness without IMDB and he won’t matter in the big picture. He fits in like all the others after BP. Once gone, out of the pic. Where’s her great friend Gerry Butler? TBH promo is over so, they moved on. No more Vacations together either. John M, done. Vince V done. It’s how she likes it. Purposed served then next.

    You don’t have to watch her womb unless you like watching paint dry. If she gets preg she will let us know. We’ll also know if she does not. Why bother? Time will tell. It’s pretty simple. She owes no one a child, a marriage or a happy ever after. Let her live as she see’s fit. That other couple sure is. That’s how it is supposed to be.

  50. Pat says:

    Mln76 and Julia. You guys have posted multiple times on a person you say only has time to go to mexcio, tan and worry about her hair. Why all the engery on someone who you think is selfish? You guys need some help.

    Honestly it is one thing to say on a blog that someone is too skinny or you hate their hair. However it is a very different things to state that certain people are on drugs and use cocaine. Aniston has moved way beyond all this. She is in a good spot and very happy. Confident in her body and herself. Whatever she decides to do with regards to personal life – the press will be the last to know. Good for her!

  51. Maya says:

    I have never believed that she wanted to have children. Her sympathy crap following her breakup with Pitt was just bad acting.
    If she really wanted to have a baby, with all her money (she probably is wealthier than Brad and Angelina combined), she wouldn’t need a husband or a boyfriend and she isn’t that ‘old fashioned’, to publicly feel comfortable about romping with a moron who publicly proclaimed he had a white supremacist penis.
    So yeah, I doubt she ever wanted kids and I wouldn’t be surprised if she was a closet lesbian or something.
    Sorry if that’s extreme, but I’m tired of her having her people put out baby stories about her.

  52. Sara says:

    She’s def preggo. she’s got roots!! And two minor pinstripe highlights around her face that were probably painted on to avoid her scalp. Also her hair has all over tone which could have been achieved via a non toxic method. And her dress is fugs and not her usual attire but an all over raised beading draws your eye from the midsection.
    Also I really think Reese W is preggers as well as she had horrible roots( like someone rubbed dirt in her scalp) and she looked pudgy at the GG’s . In summary always check a bitches roots for preggo signs!! : ) p

  53. mummy says:

    The only people who think Jen isn’t happy are the loons … at least they pretend to think she isn’t for some insane reason. I saw lots of better pictures of Jen at the event. She looks great and I’m glad she is a good place right now.

  54. micha says:

    well her little boyfriend is not ever in a frame with her unless he is caught off-guard. Even then he always looks pissed. You wanna bet after their movie comes out within one month Justin will move on. She portrays innocence, yet her fans allow her to portray doing drugs, having casual sex as well as orgies in this movie and say wow, she’s awesome. Angie does this and they crucify her.

  55. I liked up to you will receive performed proper here. The cartoon is attractive, your authored material stylish. nevertheless, you command get bought an edginess over that you want be handing over the following. unwell certainly come further earlier once more since exactly the similar just about very continuously within case you shield this hike.
