Jennifer Aniston & Justin might elope, and “Jen loves babies” of course

As I said in today’s earlier Jennifer Aniston-Justin Theroux post, prepare yourselves for the onslaught of elopement, wedding and baby stories from the tabloids about these two. But for this week, the magazines are just trying to figure out how the engagement went down, and when Justin gave Jen this huge, remarkable and alleged “emerald-cut diamond”. People Mag predictably put Jennifer’s engagement news on their cover, and here’s part of the story:

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux hopped a private jet to New York City last weekend to celebrate Theroux’s 41st birthday – but he had a little something else up his sleeve: an engagement ring.

On Aug. 10, Theroux’s birthday, the pair of 15 months sat side by side at a corner table at Blue Hill restaurant in Manhattan, enjoying a quiet dinner and looking “like a long-term couple in love,” a source tells PEOPLE in its new issue.

But the celebration was just getting started. As his rep exclusively revealed to PEOPLE, Theroux proposed that day – and Aniston, 43, gave him “an extraordinary gift” by accepting. “He’s been dying to do it,” says a Theroux pal of his popping the question. “His friends knew it was coming.”

Immediately after Aniston’s heartfelt “yes!” the couple called their families – including her father, actor John Aniston – and close pals to share the good news.

“Everyone is really excited for them,” adds a source. “It’s amazing to see how happy Justin makes Jen, and everyone was always hoping that he would propose.”

Friends say that the couple got serious about each other fast, and that actor-screenwriter Theroux is a perfect match for the laid-back Aniston. “They have the same low-key attitude about life,” says a member of their inner circle. “They just click and complement each other.”

“I wouldn’t be surprised if they eloped,” the source goes on to say that they may start a family too.

“Jen loves babies. They would be great at raising a family together.”

A friend goes on to say: “They’re in it for the long run. Those two are madly in love.”

[From People Mag & Hollywood Life]

Ah, yes. Elopement and babies. How predictable! Next week it will be that Jennifer is already pregnant and that’s why Justin proposed, shotgun-style. As for the whole New York proposal thing… does anyone else find that odd? Jennifer was in North Carolina working on her film last week (and she’s on the NC set this week too). Justin was photographed in North Carolina on Thursday of last week – he made a point of going down there after they had spent several weeks apart, and after Star Mag claimed that they had gone on a break. So, Justin flew down on Wednesday or Thursday of last week, then he and Jennifer boarded a private plane back to New York on Friday and the first thing they did was go out to dinner (for Justin’s birthday) and he proposed to her? Of course, it’s all completely possible, but is it reasonable that everything went down this way? Eh. Oh, and a rep for this restaurant, Blue Hill, told Page Six this morning, “We are thrilled about the news of their engagement, but we cannot comment on any guests.” So maybe the restaurant people are like, “Seriously, Jennifer Aniston was in here on Friday? I don’t remember that.”

As for the sketchy, passive-aggressive timing of Jennifer and Justin’s announcement and how it coincided with reports about a Brangelina wedding, a friend (“friend”) of Jennifer’s huffed to HuffPo: “That is absolutely not true. Jennifer doesn’t follow gossip at all. She doesn’t tweet or have any interest in social media, so she probably didn’t even know about the wedding rumors. Plus, Justin proposed on his birthday, which is a date that has nothing to do with Brad or Angelina. She is happier than I have ever seen her and so is he. It’s not easy dating one of the most famous people in the world.” Cough.

    Dying at your last paragraph.

    Looking forward to the onslaught of Jen stories to come. NOT.

    One of the most famous people in the world who doesn’t read gossip? Oh yeah, sounds like her.

    • Bad Irene says:

      Ugh it really is never ending isn’t it. The next round of stories will be comparing husbands, how JT is hotter, smarter and more caring and can make love to her for soooooo long it makes epics like Ben Hur seems like a one minute infomercial.

    • Eve says:

      The “cough” remark always makes me laugh :) .

    • jace says:

      Never reads gossip? What a liar. Yeah, that¨s why the paparazzi has a picture of her with a gossip magazine in hand.

      She really is a piece of work with her never-ending thirst for PR, tabloid-feeding PR agent, and all the non-stop lies. Not to mention the sad way she cheated with her current piece after publicly complaining about Pitt missing a sensitivity chip. I can´t believe I actually felt sorry for this chick after the Pitt split. Now I think she is a total fake.

      And, wait, Wedding of the Century? So, her wedding is more important than that of Princess Diana? Will and Kate? Yeah, right.
      This sounds like something her PR would cook up along with the “hottest woman alive” bs.
      Wow, just wow.

      • Marie Antoinette Jr. says:

        I agree that she probably knows everything that is said about her in the rags. And I also think that Justin proposed to her on HIS birthday precisely so they could make the point that HIS birthday has nothing to do with Brangelina.
        That said, I don’t think there’s anything really wrong with working the press the way she does. They all do it to some degree or they wouldn’t be famous for very long. There are millions of talented people in the world. The ones who make it to the top are the ones who are best at the spin game.

  2. He doesn’t strike me as the type who wants kids. Who knows? He’s done a complete 360 being with Jennifer Aniston.

  3. Birdie says:

    Gosh, let me see the ring!! That’s all I care about right now.

    • Lauren says:

      Where is the bloody ring….i hope Jen is finally happy. She is not perfect, but I`m not either. I am in no position to be judgemental. Sometimes you do not find your soulmate till your late 30`s or 40`s. I do not take sides, and hope Jen & Justin have babies -they would be funny & cute. I think Justin is sexy, takes care of himself. Is that wrong?

  4. sup says:

    i’m so f’ing sick of hearing about her or her imaginary babies.

    • HulaHoop says:

      I know! Not everyone wants or even likes babies. I have always suspected that the reason she and Brad got divorced is because she didn’t want a family which is FINE! Kids are hard work and not everyone is cut out for it.

    • Miffy says:

      Co-sign. It’s such a kick in the uterus that the likes of George Clooney never wanted babies and he’s painted as a loveable scamp for it, but if a female doesn’t pop ‘em out it’s because she’s sad and lonely and secretly pining for them. JA has made no secret of the effort she puts into her figure and seems to enjoy a busy social life, why spoil that with a child? (I speak as a mother, not everyone HAS to have a baby)

  5. Amelia says:

    Personally, I’m working with Liberty’s hilarious dialogue about how things went down on the last JA/JT thread about the ring.

  6. Amy says:

    I never understand why people seem to think that its going to be so easy for a 43-year-old woman to get pregnant. As someone who had to go thru infertility treatments to get knocked up I can tell you that she’s got less than a 5% chance of conceiving even if she uses IVF. I guess she could use donor eggs and just not tell anyone. Or adopt.

  7. Janet says:

    Oh please elope and spare us all another Wedding Of The Century. You went that route the first time around and we all know how that turned out.

  8. GirlyGirl says:

    Jennifer Aniston is so boring she makes Kristen Stewart look like the life of the party

    When will she be done? Wasn’t friends cancelled like 100 years ago?

  9. CG says:

    Don’t you love how People made sure to include that JT and JA did tell actually her dad about the engagement, and he didn’t find out about it 48 hours later from a tabloid website that called him for comment? So obvious.

  10. sophie says:

    Well, ever since the Brand got together there has been an onslaught of reports of their upcoming marriage, her dress, the ring, the kids being flower girls and ring bearers – for 7 years. It is still going on. Jen just now got engaged so of course there will be speculation, but we have been hearing about the Brand wedding for 7 years – so when is it going to be?

  11. Joyce says:

    It’s not easy dating one of the most famous people in the world.”

    Another joke of the day.

  12. marie says:

    this is ridiculous.. if she (or someone close to her) doesn’t read gossip then the tidbit about her dad finding out wouldn’t have mattered or been mentioned… say it with me “Hi, my name is Jennifer Aniston, and I’m a famewhore.”

  13. sophie says:

    We have been hearing about the Brand’s wedding for 7 years now. The dress, the kids as flower girls, the boys as ring bearers, etc. Not to mention the pregnancy stories. This has been going on for 7 years, 6 kids, and still no wedding. Jen just got engaged so of course the mags are going to be speculating on it because it is new.

  14. lassie says:

    Is she wearing Keds in the first picture? ‘Cause we’re the same age, and those were my shoe of choice in 1990. After pegging my acid washed jeans.

  15. judyjudy says:

    I’m so tired of seeing these boring ass people!

    • DreamyK says:

      Boring, boring, boring. Isn’t she considered to be box office poison now? I have zero desire to see her act in anything. She lacks the ability to transform herself into her character. All I see is Jennifer playing Jennifer.

      Her biggest and most successful gig since Friends ended is being papped carrying her Smart Water.

  16. Chatcat says:

    Stay on topic…stay on topic…stay on topic!

    Kaiser, a Fassy fix PLEASE! Anything but Jen and her uterus.

  17. Maritza says:

    I just wish they were married already just so we wouldn’t have to hear more about these two.

  18. ladybert62 says:

    My opinion is that she twisted his arm in order to get this engagement – I base this on the fact that he was with his former girlfriend for 14 years and never married – I think he is not the marrying kind; thus, I would love to have heard this conversation (argument is such a negative word – ha ha).

    I really wonder if this is going to be long term.

    • mewmow says:

      Or maybe, just maybe, Heidi was the one that didn’t want to get married and this is exactly what he has always wanted. Just saying….since we don’t REALLY know them and their personal lives. ;-)

      P.S. I think he’s a creep, so not defending him, just pointing it out that these are all rumors. ;-)

      • Becky says:

        I wondered about this as well, but Heidi has stated a couple of times that she wants a marriage and children. I find it so odd to marry someone after 14 yrs with someone else, but it has been known to happen…

      • Becky says:

        I read upon on Heidi a while ago, when my curiosity was sparked by her insane beauty (girl looks stunning with brown, red and blond hair!) and I found her to be very cool, articulate, and passionate about her job. her and Justin seemed to run in a hip social circle that is so NY and not at all Jen’s style…
        anyways, what is also odd is that, to me, it doesn’t seem that Jen would mind not marrying again, so the proposal just doesn’t seem necessary…

    • joyce says:

      She’s the one with the money & the one who’ll get him notice. He was w/Heid for 14 years. He didn’t get anywhere with his career or the attention he seeks. Seriously, most of the people who like him have never heard of him until hooked you with this woman. So, he got more out of her than Heidi. He’s no dummy.

    • Violet says:

      ITA. I suspect Jen wanted the engagement, and Justin agreed in order to keep his sugar mama happy. I’m not even sure these two will even make it to the altar, nevermind last long enough to celebrate a silver wedding anniversary.

    • Katherine says:

      Did anybody really this this guy was going to let this gold mine slip through his fingers? No way. He has been planning this since he got the chance to hook up/connect/whatever with her on the set. This marriage was a foregone conclusion from day one.

      Will it last? Who knows? I have a feeling she’ll grow impatient with his weirdness. Having said all that I think he can do her a world of good just by getting her out of her constipated mindless world.

  19. Green Is Good says:

    Lord, will JA never escape the shadow of Brangelina? It’s been how many years since she and Brad divorced?

  20. Bite me aka aniston says:

    A little ot: but I f–king love us magazine cover story about Jen engagement

  21. sunmoonstars says:

    No 1 currrrrrrr any more! I hate them all, barren catlady Jen and her bought and paid for greasy bohunk cheater boyfriend, Skeletor “the Leg” Heroinface and real life Goomba from the live action Super Mario Bros movie…aka Brad Pitt the smelly unwashed hobo. And mustn’t forget the PR person’s dream, the rainbow nation child army, JUST GO AWAY ALL OF YOU! But give me your heroin first, I need it after…what’s it been, 8 YEARS of this now? Just stick it in my vein!

  22. Sirsnarksalot says:

    If she didn’t read gossip and really doesn’t care what people think and her relationship with Justin was REAL and not part of some PR campaign then they wouldn’t even BOTHER to release “statements” to the press. Seriously, why do you need to have his PR person (the clue is right there in their title) announce this in the first place? Plenty of Hollywood folk keep their business to themselves until they can’t deny it or they get caught with an obvious ring or baby bump. She wants us to care and believe her narrative deperately. She will continue to feed the wedding info frenzy until her last breath. I’m just stunned that he is such a loser that he wants to play the game too.

  23. Imelda says:

    Yeah wanna see the ring, wanna see the dress but babies c’mon can we not do that one.
    Jen just dont drag the thing out for 7 years like u-know-who, do it already (to both couples of the quadrangle!)

  24. Violet says:

    I wonder if Jen actually plans to go through with a wedding. After all, she’s made a career of being Brad’s ex-wife. That marriage has been over longer than it lasted and Jen’s had a string of lovers over the years, yet she still manages to milk the “forever alone, forever betrayed girl next door” image. That’d be impossible to do if she got remarried. Then again, Huvane is a master so maybe I shouldn’t underestimate the man.

    In any case, I don’t think Jen has any interest in having children. She and Justin are in their 40s, and seem to be very content being childfree. (Which is not a judgment, just an observation. I’m still on the fence about whether to have kids myself, and certainly don’t think there’s anything wrong with choosing not to.)

  25. Nicolette says:

    Bitch is pathetic. Now would be the time NOT to get engaged, it just shows how desperate she still is. And as far as kids are concerned, I don’t see it. She is too in love with herself to ever put a child first. Can’t she just go away already and live off the fortune she’s making from “Friends” being in syndication?

  26. obm says:

    I share my birthday with Justin. I want to kill myself.

  27. tmbg says:

    I was kind of hoping Jennifer would state she doesn’t want kids. She could bring a little attention to this tiny group of us who choose to be childfree.

    Oh well. That emerald cut ring sounded suspiciously like AJ’s when I read about it on the UK Marie Claire site. I really want to see it.

  28. Mac says:

    If they decide to elope does that mean that Justin needs to come over with a ladder in the middle of the night?

  29. Josephina says:

    Agreed. Remind me again WHY Squiggy needs a PR person… or an escort, for that matter?

    I didn’t know he was in such HIGH DEMAND for acting, writing, AND directing… Oh my, what a star he is. Cough.

    Refresh my mind…when did he WIN an OSCAR? Get out of the way, Scorcese, Squiggy is comin’ through!! SMDH….

    Anyway, did Aniston tell her MOTHER? Again, what was the purpose for the rush to the press? We should not know before her own mother. She forgot her mother again. “Oh, I forgot my mother because…?” Wow, JustJen are SO family-oriented. GMAFB.

    According to reports Nancy Dowe first found about her daughter’s engagement re tabloids. Watch out now. There will be ANOTHER press release from the Ticky/Squiggy camp that the mother “knew all along,” but had to sign a nondisclosure statement of confidentiality…

    There are more recent picks of Ticky in a gray jersey dress dramatically covering her left ring hand. LOL!!! Where’s the beef (ring)!!!!

    Goodness, she loves the attention. She had no problem cheesin’ for the paps when she and Squiggy were walking around NYC last year wearing matching Cracker Jack rings while Heidi was still packing her suitcases to leave the NY apartment and staying the hell out of dodge.

    Sigh…When oh when shall we see “the ring?” Oh, I know… she’s gonna UPGRADE it to try to overshadow she-who-will-not-be-named…that, or she just hasn’t decided yet which ring she’ll purchase…

  30. mln76 says:

    I love that this woman gets it both ways and for the most part the minivans swallow her B.S. whole. She’s released about a dozen press releases about her engagement in the last 4 days about which rumors are correct and which are false yet she doesn’t pay attention to the tabloids. She plans to elope just in case you wanted to follow her around for the next 6 months just to make sure she’s not married yet. Why exactly does Stephen Huvane get several millions from her a year and why all the endless clarifications about whether or not she eats baby food. Why did she chase Perez Hilton down in a parking lot???? Because she doesn’t care…

  31. DB says:

    She and Brad were going to have kids – or so Brad thought. She balked, he moved on. Don’t blame him one bit, if she went back on a commitment to have children.

    It’s great that she’s engaged, but if she still does not want to actually give birth, just say so up front. No harm, no foul.

    She looks fantastic for her age – maybe she doesn’t want to lose that pristine body. As an actress, that seems ok to me too.

    She can adopt and provide one or more children with a good home if she wishes. Win – Win

  32. flutters says:

    All you people who think this engagement has anything to do with Brangie have completely missed the point.

    The timing is so obviously about there finally being a worthy heir to Aniston’s tabloid throne for the lonely single rich girl. Congratulations Taylor Swift, you have been officially crowned!

  33. dorothy says:

    Just elope already. Not looking forward to weeks of speculation regarding the wedding.

  34. skuddles says:

    Something always niggles at me when I read how happy these two are and what a great, perfectly matched couple they make. Don’t know why exactly. Often I think these statements are more for the sake of PR than the actual reality of the relationship. But maybe I’m just overly skeptical because of all the times Aniston has exploited a romance angle to try and sell a movie…

    And totally agree with other folks who don’t want to be bombarded with pre-wedding (or post wedding for that matter) stories. Just elope already.

  35. G says:

    Oh, I see…stay tuned for Baby of the Century.

  36. didoodah(france) says:

    As I said in a previous message (sorry), if Jen looks at Brad’s pictures now, she can’t have regrets, he really ages so badly… With long hair and botox, what a mix. & Angelina looking as if made of plastic. As they are, JustJen are hotter, in a more natural way. Or perhaps it is just my french taste.

  37. G says:

    It’s French to think that looks are everything?

  38. pamela says:

    Have you REALLY looked at Justin’s face? I imagine he is a mini George Hamilton in the making.

    And I know that Brad and Angie wouldn’t trade their 6 kids for all the “hotter and natural” looks you so admire. Superficiality at it’s finest.

  39. pamela says:

    BTW, where is NM6084? Why isn’t she here calling out JustJen on their PR antics for their press release on their engagement? You know the same way she lambasted the JPs last week for “announcing” their engagement, (which they didn’t)? Someone needs to put on a missing persons bulletin. LOL

    • lisa2 says:


      Glad someone else noticed. I haven’t posted on the engagement at all..

      anyway I think her and Olivia only get that GPS ping when it is a story about Brad/Angie.. its like they get a shock or something because they are here in a shot. but Funny how silent when it is someone else doing what they accuse the JPs of doing.

      You got to love that double standard logic.

    • pamela says:

      Since you seem to take my comment literally, I will rephrase. Brad and Angie will not trade having their kids for “all the hotter and natural looks”that seem so important to some.

  40. Newtsgal says:

    ” Jen loves babies”…..Shouldn’t that read ” Jen loves Beanie Babies”?

  41. Jackie O says:

    would like to know if she is desperate enough to get married without a prenup?

    wonder how much he will get out of all this…on top of the publicity.

  42. KellyinSeattle says:

    I wonder if they had a daughter, how would they style her hair? hmmmmmm Would she be cheesy cute or Shiloh cool??

  43. shay kay says:

    A few thoughts

    ..Justin actually announced the engagement which was very direct..THEY ARE ENGAGED TO BE MARRIED AND HE IS HAPPY ABOUT IT.Should JustJen forfeit the right to announce and be happy about their engagement because the JP’s haven’t set date or married yet?I don’t think so.

    ..I personally said to min76 that I would allow Jolie her victory lap over her engagement and accompany it with “We are the Champions.”Why not let Jen have the same?

    ..I also said to min76 that (HI MIN) I’d give the JP’s until the end of the year to actually get married before beginning the snarking. JustJen get the same amount of time.If the marriage isn’t a done deal after so many months than I reserve that right to say STFU until you’re actually MARRIED, not thinking about it, not engaged, not almost married, and not sure you’re going to get married but actually married. That’s fair right?

    ..If it makes a Brangeloonie feel better to think that Justin is Jen’s kept man than go with loonies!I also can’t go with the JenHens “Brad still pines for Jen” BS but evidentally that floats some people’s boats.I think sometimes Brad pines for peace and quiet but what parent doesn’t?

    I hate to fly in the face of loon logic but have you considered that just like Brad found his life partner in Angelina Jen has found hers in Justin?

  44. Imelda says:

    Shay Kay – I’m with you in principal, lets allow both couples an interest in their engagement time equallly before we all get a pain in our rocks with it.

    I’m all for equality thats why I dont get why JA gets crucified for her PR antics (and while I’m a fan I can see stuff for what it is) but the Brange gets a pass on theirs because they are so noble & talented & charitable etc.
    People they are in the business of selling themselves in movies i.e. selling themselves – period.

  45. Elj says:

    Does anyone else think ‘I bet they just have really boring sex’?

    Just me?? K…
