Jennifer Aniston ‘has begun IVF treatments, seems to have gained some weight’?

Jennifer Aniston is 44 years old. I hoped that by now the tabloids would stop with the “Is she pregnant?!!?” covers, but not so much. It’s not that it’s completely unheard of for a 44 year old to get pregnant (although with each year, it gets less likely), but I just thought that after two decades of bump-watching Jennifer, we could all finally get over it and acknowledge that she only talks about wanting babies when she’s promoting a movie, and the rest of the time she just enjoys her Cabo vacations, her mojitos and her workouts. But Jennifer does cover this week’s issue of In Touch Weekly and it’s all about how she wants a baby and IVF something and BABIES. Just in time for We’re The Millers.

Jennifer Aniston has said that she definitely sees children in her future and it might be time for the Friend to become a mommy with a new report claiming she’s using in-vitro fertilization to get pregnant.

The 44-year-old star has been engaged for almost a year to hunky Justin Theroux and pictures shows her looking rounder than usual with a possibly baby bump are leading to the speculation that she’s having a baby.

“She definitely seemed to have gained some weight,” an eyewitness told In Touch magazine about the actress on set of Squirrels to the Nuts in NYC.

The magazine says “according to new reports, Jen has begun IVF treatments, and if all goes as planned, she will be pregnant by her 45th birthday on February 11.”

“She held her script right in front of her stomach.”

Longing for a baby since divorcing Brad Pitt, who has six children with Angelina Jolie, Jen is apparently showing signs of IVF side effects.

“She wasn’t as chipper as she has been,” a witness said about her on-set demeanor.

Jen also is reportedly trying to make sure that she has a healthy baby but is aware that she needs to get moving on having a baby.

“She knows the clock is ticking – she’s well aware of it. She’s also done her homework. She’s explored all methods for having a baby and knows what her options are with IVF. She’s educated herself.”

The magazine says that Jen is handling the stress of trying for a baby well.

“There is no desperation. If it’s meant to be, it’s mean to be.”

However, her rounder face and tummy hiding tactics are only going to be able to delay an announcement for a little while.

Her rep says Jen is not pregnant but a source told the magazine that her fiancé is ready for a family too.

“Justin didn’t always want kids, but his life with Jen changed his perspective on being a dad.”

[From Radar]

So the “proof” (of IVF) is that she looks “puffy” and she’s holding scripts in front of her midsection? Ugh. If anything, I think Jennifer’s daily pap stroll has proven that her body is in excellent shape – she looks the same to me. As for the alleged puffiness in her face… some days it’s there and some days not so much. I’ll think it’s boozy puffiness or fillers before I’ll think it’s pregnancy. But… whatever. This is like the 20-bajillionth story about Jennifer maybe being pregnant. Enough.

    She has been on a strict diet for years. It catches up to you. Plus her mother’s Scottish genes are really making an appearance now. Brits don’t age well.

    • DesertReal says:

      Honey…is that what “not aging well” looks like to you? Because I’m fit, 28, never had a baby (never want to/my fiance is fixed) & if someone told me that is the body I would have 16 years from now…I think I would be okay with that.

      • YuYa says:

        Right? I’ll take “not aging well” if this is the result.

      • Rosemary says:

        Yeah…I would love to look like that. But I do not. I have Scottish genes…but not the hot ones like she has. By the way, I am 44.

    • boredbrit says:

      ‘Brits don’t age well’ Err Ok then. I guess women like Helen Mirren are ageing horrifically in your opinion then. What a load of bollocks.

      • Ginger says:

        Precisely! Helen is a goddess and plenty of men still worship at her feet

      • Cameron says:

        I don’t think we should generalize. However, I don’t think Helen Mirren is the best example.. She has a killer body but her face does look 60’s.. Compared to Susan Sarandon , Meryl Streep and Phylicia Rashad.
        Jen A looks 40’s in the face… but she a has a good body. I don’t know what Nationality Shirley Jones is but she looks Fabulous for an 80 year old.

      • Mari says:

        Plus, although Helen was born in Hammersmith, she’s of Russian descent. Her real name is Ilyena Lydia Vasilievna Mironoff.

    • AllyUK says:

      Brits don’t age well…what! Thanks for insulting us. My mother’s 80 and looks incredible and have you seen Helen Mirren lately? It’s called aging gracefully, not everyone wants a ‘hollywood face’.

      • Anna says:

        About how well Hellen Mirren proves the enduring praeternatural good looks of the Brits: she’s half Russian.

        Mirren was born Helen Lydia Mironoff in Queen Charlotte’s Hospital, Hammersmith, London. Her father, Vasiliy Petrovich Mironov (1913–1980), was of Russian origin, originally from Kuryanovo, Smolensk Oblast, and her mother, Kitty (née Kathleen Alexandrina Eva Matilda Rogers; 1909–1996), was English

    • Ginger says:

      Interesting that you think this… I’m Scottish/Irish/British ancestry and have always looked younger than I am thanks to fabulous genetics. My grandfather passed away in his 80’s with a full head of hair that was barely gray. My mother is in her 60’s with a 40 something boy toy. And no one believes me when I tell them in my 40’s…seriously I’ve had people ask to see my ID. Just saying your theory is incorrect.

      • Evie says:

        My grandmother is 91 and looks fantastic for her age and she is a native Brit. I daresay she’d take umbrage at the generalization that the British don’t age well.

      • Lauren says:

        And modesty

    • Miss Melissa says:

      It’s the movie hair and styling. The body looks bumping, the face is not flattering. But once she goes back to her signature look, she looks great.

      The moral? Make the most of what you’ve got, make sure you have flattering hair and makeup (and not a frumpy mom cut), and even gals who aren’t actually pretty can look hot as shit.

    • Viv says:

      No, I think you’re wrong about the Brits. My Scottish blood line, even in the U.S. and well before 1776, lived to be very, very old, even with the harshest of conditions. My mother is constantly told how young she looks for her age.
      I guess it depends on who you’ve seen.

    • Anthea says:

      Brits don’t age well? Bit harsh…

      Go and google Francesca Annis or Vanessa Redgrave.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        God, I love Francesca Annis. I can’t believe that she is in her sixties….I thought mid forties at most, when I saw her in Jane Eyre. She is so beautiful….I hated that short, pixie haircut she had a few years back, but other than that she is the epitome of aging well. Doesn’t look like she screwed up her face with any work, but just took care of her skin.

      • Anthea says:

        @Virgilia Coriolanus yes – I know the haircut you mean, I’d agree but for the most part she looks amazing! Especially in The Libertine.

        The thing about people like her and Helen Mirren is that they’re good at what they do, so people view them positively. It’s not all about the hair and makeup

    • Andie B says:

      I beg to differ Nomorejennifers.. My Grandad did not age well, but he spent years down a coal mine in East Glasgow and liked Whiskey way too much. However, I am 41 years old and am constantly told I look a lot younger. Ageing well is largely down to lifestyle and genetics. Anyone can look good at any age if they treat themselves well.

    • Penguin says:

      If anything we probably age better here due to the lack of sun.

    • Azurea says:

      “Brits don’t age well.” Oh really? Tell that to my pure Scottish & English genes. I’m 55 & am told on a regular basis I look late 30’s. My dear old Mum always looked far younger than her years.

  2. Holt says:

    …and the tabloids keep the TRIANGLE alive and well! Such a BS story.

    • Cherry says:

      I know, right???
      ‘Longing for a baby since divorcing Brad Pitt, who has six children with Angelina Jolie…’
      Way to bring that up again, guys. Also: didn’t this marriage partly end because Pitt wanted kids and Aniston didn’t?

      • Jenn says:

        That’s what I thought! I swear I remember reading (on several occasions) that she had agreed to try for kids after “Friends” but kept putting it off after the show ended. That was part of the marriage breaking down and BP gravitating to AJ because Maddox was on set and he loved playing with the kid. IDK, It was a while ago, but I am certain I read that.

      • lisa2 says:

        I have to say; I’m very happy

        I think things worked out QUITE nicely if you as me 🙂

      • UsedToBeLulu says:

        I would say her instincts not to have children with Pitt were spot on (if that is indeed what happened. IF.) Seeing as how he later found his soul mate with Jolie.

      • Carol says:

        I thought she miscarried.

      • Sal says:

        Carol, she never miscarried, that was a tabloid story that was quickly forgotten it was that unbelievable.

    • Delilah says:

      I was watching Mr. & Mrs. Smith last night which took me right back to the whole circus. I joked to my husband that Aniston must watch that movie in sweats eating Haagen Daz when she’s feeling masochistic —sort of a mechanism to jolt herself into reality when she’s in danger of deluding herself about any circumstances…I do believe Branjelina are soulmates, but the whole affair coulda’ been better handled. Allegedly Vince Vaughn exposed the affair. He literally was her shoulder to cry on -cuz Vaughn & Aniston hooked up after. I can’t imagine she’s truly moved on b/c everything perpetuates the memory of their sordid histories. Ouch!

      • Jospehina says:

        OMG….. Really??

        Let’s put on our thinking caps….if there was no Jolie, do you really think Brad would have stayed with Aniston KNOWING how his life is now, knowing about his artistic boom professionally with the Plan B Production Company, that every movie that he played a role since 2005 has won an award…that Make It Right Foundation is a cross between his personal passion for architecture and his mission in life to help others?

        Do you see that he could have accomplished all of this PLUS 6 kids (3 bio and 3 adopted) with Aniston?

        On many interviews Brad has been consistent that he was bored with his life while married to Aniston. Some people like zero change and are creatures of habit (Aniston.) Others might find that to be a very suffocating way to live life long term (Brad.)

        Brad and Jen were good as boyfriend/girlfriend but disastrous as husband and wife. They should have never married.

  3. FLORC says:

    Ugh. Like we didn’t see this coming? It’s called bloat! Aniston will likely never be a mom. She enjoys her very controlled lifestyle and she’s vain.
    If she ever does a movie involving an adoption we’ll get the adoption stories.
    Aniston is so successful in her many ventures that acting is like a hobby for her and a way to get attention.

    • LadyJane says:

      Uh, that is a bit of an assumption. Just because she doesn’t want to have kids doesn’t mean she is vain. LOTS of women opt out of motherhood for a myriad of reasons and frankly, I don’t think you are privy to Jen’s. I am actually more team Angie (if we must declare) but I feel a woman has the right to do whatever the hell she wants with her uterus without be labeled as vain, selfish etc.

      • Emily C. says:


        Though I think she is vain. But that has nothing to do with wanting or not wanting kids. There are plenty of extraordinarily vain and completely selfish people who have kids, and plenty of generous, wonderful people who do not want them.

      • Ebbi says:

        She doesnt want kids AND she is vain.

      • YuYa says:

        I agree. I don’t want, nor have I ever wanted kids…how does that make me “vain”? Because I have a ton of friends who do not have, nor do they want kids, and none of them are vain either. I am so sick of the double standard. I don’t see anyone calling George Clooney vain because he hasn’t had kids.

      • Bodhi says:

        She doesn’t want kids AND she is vain. Not she doesn’t want kids BECAUSE she is vain.

      • FLORC says:

        Lady Jane
        Ebbi and Bodhi got it. I just typed it out fast. 1 of the lines floating around when Brad and Jen’s marriage fell apart was he wanted kids, but she didn’t want to ruin her figure and had a lot more she wanted to do in acting.
        Jen puts all this info out there through her publicist and in interviews. She leaves the possibility to have kids open in carefully constructed statements. She knows what she’s doing and he’s a master at it.

        And being vain and not having kids does connect for some people. Some women’s bodies don’t bounce back and some women will not risk this. Especially when they make a living off of their physical appearance.
        Personally, she seems to be playing the baby card like the victim card. And if we’re stating sides i’m on both. Angie makes great movies for the most part, does great charity work, and seems to be a great mother to her brood.
        Jen is an awful actress, but a savvy business woman. She’s flipped real estate for a profit in a down market and has provided enough seed money to many strong companies. She never has to work again if she likes. So, when Jen reaches menopause and can no longer hace her own children the new story will be how she will adopt or has frozen her eggs… It’s all just for publicity.

    • Monty says:

      I dont want kids either. Am I vain too? Comeon ladies, this is not 1930. Catch up.

      • Diana says:

        Perfect response!!

      • SuperStef says:

        Haha, exactly! I think if Jen really wanted to have kids, she would have done so already. We don’t know her and shouldn’t make assumptions about her personal life decisions.

        I’d much rather see people not have kids if they aren’t committed, instead of having them and not being a good parent.

        I’ve always known I wasn’t meant procreate. I’d always thought I’d adopt or foster – turns out its being a Stepmom to 2 kids whose mother didn’t want to raise them anymore.

        I’m certainly not vain, but I am sometimes selfish when I need to be. No shame – I own it. I think Jen does too.

      • Lauren says:

        People have different reasons for not having kids. For some people, vanity/not wanting to go through pregnancy plays a big role. This does not mean all or most women who don’t want kids are vain. Interesting how defensive people are about this topic. Mothers get slammed and judged for their choices all the time. It’s certainly not unique to not having kids.

    • Meredith says:

      Clearly Aniston doesn’t want kids. And that’s fine with me. If she had wanted them, she’d have kids by now. So her “maybe, maybe, maybe” comments from a recent interview (and now this) would indeed seem to be PR fodder for her fans and the tabloids! Boring. And yes, she does have a movie coming out soon!!

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I don’t get how people can say she wants kids when she’s with Justin-a forty year old who was in a long term relationship without any kids. With the exception of Vince Vaughn, none of her exes have kids or are married/have long term partners. I don’t get it. I suppose it’s possible that she feels comfortable to have one now, but if she’s worried about her weight-which is legitimate at her age, she could adopt a newborn. I’m actually surprised she hasn’t done that-if she wanted kids.

  4. epiphany says:

    Hasn’t she made in crystal clear, after all this time – she doesn’t want kids!!!
    If ITW is going to fabricate stores, at least make it about something on the edge credibility.

  5. Ellie66 says:

    The short hair looks terrible on her and those gold glasses are unspeakable! Blah!

    • UsedToBeLulu says:

      I so agree with the aviator glasses style on her. I want to do an eyeglass intervention. They are the worst style for her face shape.

  6. Bird says:

    I really want her linen shorts and that little summer dress. For reals, tell me where to buy them!

  7. littlemissnaughty says:

    She looks good. I wish she’d stop with the face “treatments” though. It’s never a good look. But if she likes it, fine. I’m so bored of the Jen preggo stories. It really has been 20 years, hasn’t it? Ugh.

  8. The Original Mia says:

    Next up…sexy magazine cover. Her movie PR is so predictable.

    She’s not having a kid. If she wanted one, she’d have one. If she wanted to be married, she’d be married.

  9. Kim1 says:

    So, she holds scripts in front of her stomach NOT because she IS pregnant but because she is on IVF.Oh yeah that makes sense SMH

    • Anguishedcorn says:

      IVF is a horrible experience, completely screws with your body and your mind, and yes, does cause your midsection to balloon up. So it’s conceivable.

      HAHAHAHAHAHA… see what I did there?

  10. Kiddo says:

    I don’t know. First, you have to buy the premise that she gained weight. I’m not seeing it, so the rest of the story falls flat for me at this point.

    • Sullivan says:

      To me, it seems obvious that she’s gained weight. It usually happens in middle- age, right? No big deal. I cannot imagine her being pregnant, though. It’s not for everyone. She seems as maternal as she is sexy. It’s just not there.

  11. Belle Epoch says:

    “The magazine says “according to new reports, Jen has begun IVF treatments, and if all goes as planned, she will be pregnant by her 45th birthday on February 11.”

    Did this strike anyone else as weird? Pregnancy and childbirth can’t be CONTROLLED like this. You can’t just write in your day planner “get pregnant by 2/11.” Especially at age 44!

    • LAK says:

      my sister is THIS controlling.

      Her life goals where mapped out and given deadline dates each of which she met. Including dates to have children.

  12. BooBooLaRue says:

    When she’s not “done” she looks pretty rough.

  13. dorothy says:

    God, go ahead and get married, get pregnant and go away. I’m so tired of reading about this B list, but beautiful woman.

  14. vennie says:

    Plus at 44 she could be in Perimenopause. that cause belly issues and bloat and all kinds of other fun issues. I am not a huge fan but I think body wise she looks great. She needs to amp up the sunscreen though.

  15. Lola says:

    I wish I were as fat as her!

  16. Pixie Witch says:

    Poor Jen, i really feel badly for her. first brad cheating and leaving and him and angie having hordes of kids when all Jen wanted was to have children. now she needs invitro. at least she has the money and resources for that. i think i would have just given up. how do u recover from brad pitt leaving you? I barely survived being dumped by no future a-holes. shes tougher then i ever could be.

    • Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

      Best comment 🙂

    • Maya says:

      Jennifer herself with her 3 BFFs all confirmed that Brad never cheated and that he told her the second he started to develop feelings for another woman. How about you start believing the people involved in this and stop writing lies?

      • Jaxx says:

        Amen. I get so sick of hearing the cheating stories when Jen stated from the very beginning that Brad did not cheat and was fully honest with her about his feelings. Couple that with Angelina’s vow that she would never sleep with a married man after seeing what that experience did to her mother. If the people involved say there was no cheating then why has so much ink been wasted on the eternal triangle?

    • Janet says:

      All she wanted was to have children? Then why didn’t she have them when she was married to Brad Pitt? He was desperate for a family and she kept putting it off. She said she would start a family as soon as Friends wrapped. Then Friends wrapped and what did she do? She signed up to make 4 movies back to back. She wanted children like she wanted a case of measles. She never wanted kids then and she doesn’t want them now but she thinks she has to keep the bullshit going to appease her gullible fans.

      • Cece says:

        I assumed Pixie’s comment was dripping with sarcasm. If it was not, no use arguing with someone who would think such a thing.

      • Ennie says:

        And even if it was true that she wanted children… Why not aving them when she was in Friends? Both of the other actresses got pregnant during the filming. One was heavily pregnant, and the other courteney, had miscarriages during the filming due to the treatments she was enduring, until she had a sucessful treatment at the end of the last season.
        Witnessing this that hapenned to her then BBF, , I very much doubt that Aniston would keep postponing having a child… Unless she did not really want one.
        I do think that she views herself as a young adult, or even teen, as a “girl”, even at 44. I recall and interview and she was really out of line with her real age and mentality.
        I can recognise it because I can relate, I am childless (not by choice), and over 40. She somehow seems age stunted.

    • LAK says:

      goodness. sarcasm is really lost on y’all!!!

      Pixie witch’s comment is the best ever.

  17. bowers says:

    She looks good. She doesn’t want a baby. That’s fine.

  18. Bird says:

    Rumor has it she had two miscarriages with Pitt. Wouldn’t all this conjecture about not wanting kids just piss you off if you were her?

    • truthSF says:

      It was a rumor started by a fan. There was never any confirmation from anyone involved. Plus, didn’t Brad admit to not wanting kids until he met Jolie?

      • epiphany says:

        Brad teared up during an interview in 2001, which included the entire ‘Ocean’s 11’ cast, and stated the thing he wanted most was kids.
        Mr. and Mrs. Smith was filmed in 2004, released 2005. She denied the miscarriage rumors long ago.

      • truthSF says:

        epiphany, that interview was done in December of 2004 by Diane Sawyer for Ocean 12, it was the same interview where they discussed Julia’s pregnancy (she was pregnant with her twins that year) and Mr.-Mrs. Smith started filming in January of ’04. It’s still on YouTube.

        That’s why ppl were surprise when a month later, he and Aniston announced their separation. Considering, Brad was just teary on tv talking about babies.

        I’m glad he wanted/had kids with Jolie. They seem like soulmates.

      • cs says:


        Not that I’m taking up for JA, I don’t even like her. But, Brad did say he didn’t want kids until he met Angie. When he had that interview with Diane Sawyer, he was clearly talking about Angie, not Jen.
        I also believe in that 2005 Vanity Fair interview, one of her friends said Brad never showed interest in having children with JA.

        I believe the reporter for that article said she thought something was up when she interviewed Brad back in 2003 and he talked about his marriage being a merger…”he will see how this thing plays out”. Who says that if they are in happy, committed relationship and after three years of marriage.

        That’s why I believe their marriage was on the rocks way before Angie came into his life.

        Although I don’t believe they cheated, He was blown away by her. She was a 29 year old single mother, making a difference around the world, adventurous, smart, confident and beautiful. He met his soul mate.

        Do I think he would have left JA even if he hadn’t met Angie? Yes.

        Just a opinion.

      • Bridget says:

        Brad talked about wanting kids for a long time with JA. Especially with the Rachel pregmamcy storyline it came up constantly. And if you remember, part of the allure of the Brad-Jen pairing was how badly he was burned by Gwyneth Paltrow. He was the one who was publicly enthusiastic about the whole idea of marriage and domesticity, and when Brad/Gwyneth fell apart and he eventually married JA there was a general sense that he was finally getting his trip down the aisle, and the chance to have a family that he had indeed talked about. And of course a lot can happen – she may have thought she wanted kids at one point, he may have thought he could change her mind on the subject. But even during the Aniston yeard he was quite publicly enthusiastic while she was always ‘uh, sure, yeah’.

        I’ve always wished that JA would just say she doesn’t want kids, I would have so much respect for her. I have children myself, by my whole personhood isn’t defined by the fact that I’m a mom (or how quickly I lost my baby weight).

    • Maya says:

      Jennifer herself denied those miscarriage rumours. She has said that she has never been pregnant so how could she have had miscarriages then? Plus she also made a Smatwater as where she is mocking those miscarriage and pregnancy rumours. Anyone who has had any miscarriage nor trying to get pregnant would never ever mock things like that..

      • Kim1 says:

        Her fans started that rumor,she has mocked pregnancy rumors for years.Starting with SNL about ten years ago and just recently in a commercial.A woman who has endured miscarriages is not going to JOKE about being pregnant IMO

      • Sullivan says:

        The miscarriage rumors are in really poor taste. Aniston said she never had a miscarriage.

      • jas says:

        Wait, she made Smartwater commercials where she made fun of miscarriages??? Where did you get that from??

    • Sal says:

      That was a concocted tabloid story that all involved denied and that died quickly because it was so ludicrous and unbelievable. I mean, think about it. Her bff Courteney was very public about her miscarriages and struggles and started a campaign to raise awareness and break down the barriers/silence on the issue. If Aniston had problems, she would have shared her experiences to support C.C’s breaking the silence/raise awareness. It was started by a rabid Aniston fan trying to turn around public opinion over Brad wanting children and it was a vindictive tabloid lie that has all been forgotten except by those who want to cause mischief by keeping the lie alive to skew public opinion.

    I can not take the Andrea 90210 look anymore. Please enough!

  20. Bobbi says:

    I Like the hair in the on set pics. She should keep it that way. Yep 17 yrs of bump watch on this girl. If nothing by 46 then no baby is my
    Guess. But women have had children at that age!

  21. Andrea says:

    Her body looks great to me. No problem there.

    If she is truly on IVF then I feel for her. It’s rough. And emotional. Whatever she does is her choice.

  22. lisa says:

    this is who simon cowell should be dating

    he wouldnt have to worry about a baby here

  23. Cara says:

    Helen Mirren is RUSSIAN. Not British! Mironov I think is her real surname. So many people assume she’s British.

    And she’s had good, subtle cosmetic surgery. So even if she were British she’s not the example of aging naturally. So annoying people act like she’s had zero work done.

  24. purpleunicorn says:

    By age 45, you can use donor eggs for IVF, but not your own. Success rates with 45 year old eggs are dismal.

    • Lady D says:

      If I was to donate eggs, would the future baby have my blonde hair/blue eye characteristics? I don’t know anything about IVF other than what I’ve read here. It sounds like IVF is heartbreaking, expensive, emotional, and painful. Would the resultant baby have anything of its womb mother in it? Ditto sperm donors. Will the baby have donor characteristics?

      • Part-time Snarker says:

        Yes. The baby would have the characteristics of the donors, rather than the person carrying the baby. The genetic material comes from the sperm and the egg.

      • Lady D says:

        Thanks for the answer Part-time Snarker. If I have say, sickle cell anemia the baby will too, right? Is there anything of the expectant mother in the baby? Whose blood type will the baby have? I really do not know anything about IVF. I’m assuming they implant the egg and sperm in the mother-to-be, or do they create the baby in a test tube and then implant? Do they implant several hoping one creates life, or one implant at a time. I can see where the expense comes in with implants. All I do know about IVF is my heart goes out to those that attempt it. Is there a high success rate with IVF?

      • Bridget says:

        With IVF (and all pregnancies in general) the genetic material comes from the sperm and the egg, and the sperm and the egg only. The person carrying the baby is just an incubator. That’s why the whole egg and sperm thing is pretty important. I might suggest a refresher on your human reproduction basics.

        IVF is invasive and is a last resort. The woman (or egg donor) is pumped full of hormones for a couple of months and then has her eggs extracted (which isnt easy). Then the viable eggs are fertilized with the sperm and implanted – I think it’s usually a few at a time, since its not responsible to put in more potentially viable embryos than that. IvF has about a 25 percent success rate, and costs thousands of dollars per attempt.

      • GeekLuva says:

        @Lady: My husband & I are currently about halfway thru our 1st cycle of IVF. Average cost with one complete cycle is approximatly $20,000. Some insurance will help or cover it completely. I’m not sure about donor specifics since we are both healthy enough to use my eggs & his swimmers. But yes its can be an emotional, tedious, & eye opening. I’ve broken down a couple times. I’ve been blessed with an amazing husband & supportive family so I think our experience is different. Hopefully we will be pregnant by the end of August! (Yes its planned down to the week of “conception”.) The short answer is they put you on birth control to “reset” your horomones & then you take horomones in various stages afterward (pills, injections, suppositories) to prepare your body to over ovulate. The best eggs are introduced to the best sperm in the lab, & after 3-5 days they put the best embryo(s) in the oven… and the family prays,hopes,dreams, & wishes their asses off.

      • GeekLuva says:

        @Bridget: You sound incredibly angry. Some pros about IVF
        1. My acne has cleared
        2. Ive lost about ten pounds
        3. My boobs grew a cup size
        4. And one of my a.m. meds gives me an energy boost akin to coffee
        5. We will be able to give my husbands parents their first grandchild & my parents the ‘revenge’ theyve been waiting for =]
        Look on the brightside! I mean its free and everything!

  25. Jazmin says:

    With that wig and makeup she looks like
    Dustin Hoffman’s tootsie!

    • Meredith says:

      Yeah, and I think Hoffman did that look better! That being said, I think JA has a great body and is beautiful.

  26. Jayna says:

    She stopped smoking, thus the weight gain, and sometimes when you settle into a relationship and are happy you gain a few pounds.

    • UsedToBeLulu says:

      Oh boy, is THAT ever true. *side eye to the husband who is always cooking for me* I would never think ‘oh such and such sounds so good, I think I will make that’. But if someone else makes it and gives it to me, you bet I’ll eat it!

    • Sal says:

      She re-started smoking.

  27. sophie says:

    In addition to quitting smoking, she had surgery on her knee which has to have an effect on how she works out.

  28. Macey says:

    The mags really need to get over the Jen pregnancy stories, they’re so full of it.

    I wish people would get over the idea that just b/c you have ovaries does NOT mean you automatically want kids. Like others above have said there are many women, myself included, that do NOT want nor have ever wanted kids. There is nothing wrong with that. I think there’s more of a problem if women are having kids b/c its expected of them even tho they’re unsure if they really want to be parents.

    • Jaxx says:

      You are so right. I’ve been greatly heartened seeing a generation of women decide that kids are not for them and aren’t ashamed to admit it. Raising kids is one of the hardest jobs in the world and not one anyone who doesn’t want it should even think of taking on.

      How much better would the world be if a generation of kids are born to people who truly want to be parents, who truly love having kids, and aren’t a bit resentful of the sacrifices that will be made during the 18 years of long hours, sleepless nights, and the mostly thankless tasks involved in the proper raising of children. That generation of kids would be a gift to the world and might put shrinks right out of business.

  29. mslewis says:

    The rags keep this story going because Jen refuses to come right out and say she doesn’t want babies. There is nothing wrong with not wanting children (I never wanted any and never had any) but she should just say so in an interview instead of saying vague things about kids. I cannot imagine she would want kids now, at her age because, if she did get pregnant, her body would NEVER bounce back, no matter how much she worked out.

  30. Cece says:

    I’m not a fan, but I don’t think wanting a baby is outside the realm of possibility. It is possible that she’s getting bored with tanning, drinking and redoing houses, and having a baby does give these celeb types a boost of publicity.

  31. The Original G says:

    I get the publicity angle. What I don’t get is why it’s targeted to the interests of mini-van moms?

    I know she’s got some tabloid support in that demographic, but they never buy tickets to her movies?

  32. ann valor says:

    Helen Mirren is Russian….

  33. chloe says:

    I would takes Jen’s fat and old body anytime, I think she looks great. Of course I think having some meat on your bones is a good thing and hers looks to be pretty good muscle tone without looking like a body builder. As for her face I think it looks great, I would think with her tanning and past smoking that she has definitely had some laser or chemical peels, but heck I’ve looked into that because of age spots, my years of tanning have caught up to me in my 40’s. As for the story in In Touch, do big name stars really give interviews to these rags or do mags take old interviews from other publications and Frankenstein them together to make whatever crap story they think might sell? Just wondering.

    • Thelma says:

      Are we looking at the same picture? Body looks okay… Ill defined waist and short legs but well toned overall. But that face! Mannish looking, thin lips and largish nose. Personally, I would rather have a beautiful face at the expense of a little weight.,but to each his (or her) own.

  34. Viv says:

    If she’s going IVF, I’d more likely think Aniston would get a Surrogate to carry any baby. Most women, IMHO, embrace the joys of carrying a baby, but this woman I don’t think is going to want any wear and tear on her precious body.

    • Bridget says:

      More like, most women endure carrying a baby bwcause they like the outcome. Some women do genuinely love pregnancy but they are pretty vastly outnumbered. It is not a fun experience – you’ree SICK for weeks or months, exhausted all the time, parts of your body are uncomfortable or hurt, and you have hormones raging that can easily make you: angry, sad, grumpy, crazy, happy, etc. Seriously, the word is ENDURE

  35. Assistant Rachel says:

    Oh God who the hell cares anymore!?

    She has more then enough money to make kids happen for her if she honestly wanted them. I think its pretty obvious to anyone with half a brain she does not want to be a mother. Which is fine, but for crying out loud, just say so!! Jeez!!!

  36. chaxlowkos says:

    c- soccer mom

  37. jessica says:

    If she froze her eggs then it is absolutely possible to get preggo via IVF at her age and well beyond. she’s loaded with money and I’m sure covered those bases a long time ago.

  38. Bea says:

    Every time there is a movie to promote she does the same song and dance and writes a check to her PR person.

    What I find sad is that right after her big Glamour interview is promoted, she allows herself to sit next one of the biggest bullies in Hollywood – Handler – and laughs as that awful woman perpetuates a horrible negative sterotype about African American men.


    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      I honestly don’t get why there wasn’t a greater backlash against Handler and Jennifer (by association) for the things Handler said about the JP kids. I just don’t get it. I mean, I wouldn’t have even heard about what she said, if I hadn’t read this site.

      The things she said were disgusting, to anyone’s ears, but especially to mine-as someone who is biracial, and whose twin brother (who is darker than I am) would come home crying from school, because none of the other kids would play with him-because of his skin color.

      And THAT is what makes me disgusted by Jennifer. The fact that she would still publically and personally have ties to someone who says that about children, and not only children, but the children of her EX. Which not only makes her disgusting, but makes her pathetic-by association.

      I don’t get it, at all.

      • Janet says:

        What you have to realize is that a lot of Aniston’s fan base is just as racist as Handler is. You should have seen some of the comments they spewed on the internet about the Jolie-Pitt children in the first couple of years after Aniston’s divorce. Handler’s remarks, despicable as they were, were tame by comparison.

      • Bea says:

        I don’t get it either.

        Now, the two of them are sitting there like mean girls picking on Katie Couric – who stood by Aniston during her almost 9 year long “pitt”y party, yet Aniston can spew her crap about bullies?

        I’m so disgusted by both of them.

        I’m more disgusted that Sandra Bullock and Charlize Theron would still call either one of them friends while raising black sons themselves.

      • Sal says:

        Agreed. Also agree with Janet, most Aniston fans are very racist. Its in their DNA.

  39. MistyNinja says:

    Things Jen says, blah blah hair blah blah beauty routine blah blah Justin-man at time blah blah blah blah oh honiiiiieeee blah sycophant blah blah never to late for babies

    Things said about Jen. blah blah 90’s hair blah blah she wants babies blah blah not over brad blah blah angelina stole her greatest love blah blah last shot of happiness blah blah.

  40. heidiho says:

    Hello people…..I’m like positive she doesn’t want kids cause she’d have one by now……… for not aging well…she’s doing better than 98% of 44 yr olds so bite your tongue….and I’m not a huge Jen lover so there.

  41. Jennifer says:

    I doubt she has eggs frozen. Egg banking just became non-experimental through a new flash freezing process called vitrification. Prior to this (the technology is less than 3 years old) she wouldn’t have been able to bank more than a few eggs, as few survived the freezing process. At 44, there is no egg banking. I’ve seen two assisted IVF pregnancies at 44 with own egg…most women who are infertile through inter course at this age will require an egg donor.

  42. palermo says:

    She looks really homely lately, face, body, everything

  43. evelyn apricots says:

    I think the world will do a collective cheer when Jen Aniston finally gets pregnant. We love you Jen!

    • Hillla says:

      Newsflash, most of the world does not care and has no idea who she is.

      “We” do not love her. And she is not getting pregnant.

  44. Norm says:

    A friend of mine gave birth to a very healthy baby at 49, so she’s got time 🙂

  45. Sal says:

    Oh, the pro-Aniston Outa Touch Weakly says Jen has been “longing for a baby sit Pitt left her”, seriously, what a load of rott!

  46. Paige says:

    LOL she is NOT gonna have babies. Why can’t people just accept it?

  47. Jayna says:

    Jennifer s on Jimmy Fallon tonight, and I knew it. I said I had been really looking forward to We Are The Millers. It just looks funny to me. Jimmy Fallon was raving about it. He said he loved it from beginning to end and loved the bloopers at the end. He kept cracking up in the interview just trying to talk about scenes. I can’t wait.
    He said it was like Vacation meets Hangover and is R rated.

    Jennifer’s hair looked great, trimmed up, nice layers. Healthy looking than lately. Nice dress. But as usual, she was orange. I just don’t get it, I really don’t. Who thinks an orange face looks good?

  48. ohyeah says:

    I hate this conversation and I have little respect to those who claim people who don’t have kids are vain.

    No one knows Aniston’s situation, it is all speculation and gossip.

    Maybe she does want children, but she is not able to. A friend of mine has been trying for years, but can’t go full term because of her fibroid.

    this discussion is disgusting and disappointing especially coming from mouths of women.

  49. Dagmar Unger says:

    Everyone forgets she gave up cigarettes, that’s the reason for her slight weigh gain.
