Star claims Jennifer Aniston is adopting a baby boy


Star magazine is reporting that Jennifer Aniston is in the process of adopting a baby boy. Let the Aniston v. Brangelina insanity ensue. Star claims that Aniston has wanted a baby for years, and is no longer willing to wait. And unlike her nemesis Angelina Jolie, Jennifer is sticking with the ‘go local’ movement and taking home an American baby. I can actually hear the Brangeloonies screaming through the tubes of the interweb as I write this.

After years of yearning for a baby, Jennifer Aniston is finally doing something about it: she’s taking her cue from arch-rival Angelina Jolie and adopting.

Star has learned that 40-year-old Jen has already started the paperwork with an agency in California and is planning to take home a baby boy. “She doesn’t want to wait,” says a friend.

“Her best friends all have kids, and Jen sees how much motherhood changed their lives for the best,” says the source. “She’s dying to have that!”

Jen has already started planning a $250,000 nursery at her home in Beverly Hills, and has even picked out her nanny. Unlike Angie, she wants a baby from the USA.

Jennifer is getting help from close friends including Sheryl Crow, who adopted a baby boy two years ago. “Sheryl is walking her through the process step by step,” says another insider.

Of course Star had to take an adversarial approach to the story with the Angelina jibes. Unlike the Enquirer, Star is rarely correct. They’re still following their old school tabloid model of “I dreamed it last night so it must be true” style investigative work. That said, it wouldn’t be crazy if Jennifer were adopting. She’s more than financially secure and perhaps at a point in her life where she’s ready to settle down and focus on a child. I honestly don’t think she’s as man desperate as the tabloids try to make her out to be. So it makes perfect sense to me that she’d want to raise a child on her own.

But she’s no J-Lo. I’d like to know how it’d even be possible to spend $250,000 on a nursery. Even in Hollywood. Even if you had the whole room coated in a layer of gold (maybe it’s antimicrobial? Dial gold soap is), I don’t think it could come to more than $150,000 max. If there’s any truth to the story, then congratulations to Jen. If there isn’t, I think she should go ahead and consider adopting, because a version of this story is going to come out every month until she does.

    what’s she naming it. aaaahhhh tease!

    don’t adoptions still take years. how many times has star had her adopt now. I’d be interested in the count.

  2. GMAFB says:

    What happened to the twins Star claimed she was having with John a few weeks ago and the baby she had with Paul?Where is she hiding those kids? JA told Larry King that adoption was not “her thing”.She is still young she can have a baby with Courtney was 42

  3. darya says:

    Uh huh…how many times is this now? I’ll believe it when I see it and so should everyone else who’s been sucked in so many times before with this baby BS.

  4. aleach says:

    like, OMG you guys! she TOTES wants to be angelina! only angelina can adopt babiez!!!

  5. Zoe (The Other One) says:

    I don’t believe a word of it until I see it.

  6. PJ says:

    Thanks for sharing this story with us, it made me laugh at the headline.

    “Last-minute advice from Brad!”

    Right! The tabloids just won’t let it go, will they. They’ve got to add a Brangelina angle to every Jennifer story. If they had a picture of Jennifer eating lunch, they’d write a caption that said “Jennifer eats lunch, thinking about how she used to have lunch with Brad.”

  7. kris says:

    if she did… ill find her funny..

    i mean why only now if she yearned it for years?

  8. kap says:

    I actually though she really didn’t want children but could never come out and say so without jeopardizing her minivan fan base. Of course Star had the same headline about 2 yrs ago, but then it was a little girl (I think). I know a couple who’ve been trying for about 5-6 years to adopt a newborn (up to 2 years old was their criteria). They finally were able to adopt 2 brothers, 10 and 12 yrs old. Understand it’s really hard to get a newborn baby, unless you find a Juno somewhere, or have lots of money, and that’s a shame.

  9. geronimo says:

    I hope this is true and that she names him Bradley Pitt Aniston.

  10. Sauronsarmy says:

    geronimo: LOL! I hope its twins and names the other one Angelina Jolie Voight.

  11. Codzilla says:

    geronimo: LOL! Just imagining the resulting furor makes me smile inside.

  12. Hanh says:

    I don’t think she really wants to have children of her own considering how tough she works to keep her body. And I don’t think she wants the responsibility of a child until her career is where she wants it to be. There’s nothing wrong with that. I think she’s just one of those women who are happy not to have children.

    I think if she ends up adopting, it will be because she gave into the pressure. Because if she really wanted a child, she would have had a child by now. Adopting is pretty easy for a celebrity.

  13. kris says:

    she will call the boy angelino julio bradx p. aniston (silent d)

    latin, with x, two names.

  14. Tia says:

    Best of luck to her. I know two daddies who just adopted baby girl twins… they are so beautiful. There are so many children out there who need wonderful parents… she will make a wonderful mom !!

  15. Leah says:

    I hope this is true! I would be really happy for her if she were to adopt.

  16. HashBrowns says:

    LOL@ geronimo, Codzilla and Sauronsarmy!

    But you know she’ll have to invite Brad and Angie to an adoption party and be devastated when they don’t show up but Brad will call her at 1am to tell her that he still loves her and Angie will have a fit and throw knives at him while Maddox watches and cries and Jen will be devastated to hear the news and will desperately try to get a hold of them but they won’t return her desperate phone calls and then she’ll throw a pity party for herself in her gold-covered nursery and then cry her pitiful self to sleep because baby Brad can’t come home because the adoption agency thinks she’s a “pitiful, desperate, pathetic hag who doesn’t deserve a baby”.

    Then John Mayer will write a d**chey song about it.

  17. someone says:

    Im a Jen fan, but I will wait and see what happens..I don’t believe anything STAR writes.

  18. boo says:

    What a crock. Why are the tabloids so stodgy and old fasioned???? Why don’t they manufacture these stories about George Clooney? I’m single, 40s and the last thing I want is a kid, husband or steady boyfriend.

  19. PJ says:

    Brad and Angelina could name their next kid “Jennifer Aniston Jolie-Pitt.”

    Better yet, Jennifer Jolie. That has a nice ring to it.

  20. daisyfly says:

    Yay, someone who won’t be able to run away and twitter about her.

  21. Maritza says:

    I wish it were true (I doubt it)and she should name the baby Brad, the magazines would have a field day if it happens.

  22. Valensi says:

    Even if she was considering adopting a baby and some process was in the works, I’d think it’d be pretty funny if she put it off for a bit to get Star to shut the hell up.
    Good for her, though. And yeah – someone really needs to pitch Brad as the baby’s name!

  23. Magsy says:

    And she’ll probably name it Marley. I guess adoption is perfect for Jen since she’s sooo body conscious, no baby fat and no stretch marks.

  24. JEN says:

    Jen, fire your make up artist.They give you too much make up You don’t need red cheeks, red lip. deep blue eyes. Go back your own original beauty.
