OK! Magazine claims Jennifer Aniston is pregnant

It’s Wednesday so we’re being blessed with the covers of the upcoming weekly tabloids. OK! Magazine is making the spurious claim on this week’s cover that Jennifer Aniston is pregnant. This all seems to be based on a small “bump” she was sporting at the premiere of her new movie, Love Happens. The thing is, Aniston sometimes gets this very minor “pooch” when she’s gained a tiny bit of weight, and it doesn’t necessarily mean she’s pregnant. I can remember at least three separate instances when she gained 5 pounds (max) and outlets, including us, were quick to call her pregnant. This time, Fox News called her belly “sexy” in a kind of condescending way, and then tried to make it sound like they were complimenting her by declaring that “Real bodies are back in!”

OK Magazine takes that a step further by declaring that Aniston is pregnant. We have a Life and Style cover from 2006 and a Star Magazine cover from early 2008, below, that pretty much say the same thing using the same kind of photos. If this is somehow true, congratulations to Aniston, but I doubt that OK! has anything more to go on than some red carpet photos.


Jennifer Aniston has never hid the fact that her biological clock is a-ticking and who could blame her: She turned 40 in February and most of her Hollywood pals — like Courteney Cox and Sheryl Crow — are already mothers, a role she’s ready to embrace.

“I feel [motherhood is] in my future and I’m on the verge of it in some way,” the Love Happens star has said in recent months. “I want to have children. That’s my plan.”

And at least one Aniston insiders tells OK! that becoming a parent has quickly become a high priority for the actress, who has scheduled several months off before starting her next project in 2010.

“Jen’s made no secret of the fact she wants to get pregnant,” says the source. “Now, with nothing on her schedule for a while, she can relax and address the priorities that matter most — and motherhood is right at the top of her list.

“She wants to have a baby soon,” adds the insider. “And has set her heart on getting pregnant before her 41st birthday.”

For the complete story on Jen’s baby plans, including her plans for picking the baby daddy and how she’s reconciling with her own estranged mother — pick up the new issue of OK! — on sale everywhere Thursday!

[From OK! Magazine]

OK! is really turning into Star Magazine lately. It’s like Life & Style and In Touch have more integrity. I found this really funny segment from The Soup making fun of the tabloid coverage of Jennifer Aniston’s love life. This made me laugh out loud several times. The “pregnancy” angle from OK! is just a small variation on the ceaseless broken record we’ve been hearing from the tabloids on Aniston for years. It isn’t even an original one. Note to Aniston: never hold your hand over your stomach – ever.

    Oh please! That rag needs to be taken off the market!

    The story is so stupid I can’t even comment!

  2. HEB says:

    Um Life & Style and Integrity? WTF?!

  3. Beth says:

    This story doesn’t make sense. The cover makes it sound like she’s pregnant but article makes it sound like Jennifer is planning to get pregnant. Either way the story is false. Jennifer is doing another movie in January. Also she’s been saying for almost five years she wants kids but nothing indicates she’s trying to do that.

  4. Bodhi says:

    Twins for Jen? WTF? How in the hell can people write this crap?

  5. DD says:

    Beth perhaps she wants to have kids naturally.. so what do you suggest? She poke holes in the condom of her boyfriend of the week? Forget to take the pill? Usually both parties should agree to having children unless there is an accident or some scheming is involved… oh and many people believe it or not do have problems getting pregnant. I happen to know several of those people that others just assume are selfishly not having children when in fact they don’t openly discuss their troubles conceiving.

  6. Cheyenne says:

    If she wants to have a baby naturally, I would suggest she reorganize her priorities, put whatever plans she has for making another movie on the back burner, and make getting pregnant her sole priority now. After 35 your chances for getting pregnant from one month to the next decrease exponentially. The trouble with Aniston is she says one thing and she does something else. She said she planned to start a family with Brad Pitt as soon as Friends wrapped, but she signed up to do four movies back to back. I have a feeling that having a baby is no part of either her immediate or long-range plans. Which is fine; it’s her life. I just wish that for once she’d be honest about it.

  7. Rosalee says:

    Ha..I love it. I strongly doubt that she is trying at this point. She’s working and by all appearances having a fabulous time, why have a major upheaval like children and alter a life that is so obviously full, interesting and fun. Damn if I was her I wouldn’t change a thing..

  8. Best of British says:

    Loved the clip CB

  9. javelin says:

    If she wants a biological kid she could always use a surrogate. Who cares, anyway? I’m so sick of hearing about babies. They’re not that interesting.

  10. Ana says:

    As soon as I saw the way that silver dress hung over her belly, I knew rumors would start flying.

  11. crash2GO2 says:

    She can get quite a little pooch. I was convinced she was pregnant from the photos at the Oscars – she was holding her hand over her stomach, hanging onto Meyers, glowing like mad, sporting a melon sized pooch. It’s weird. Either she is sadly having a series of miscarriages or she just really bloats during her cycle.

  12. Sigh. says:

    She said she was going to “travel” during her 3 months break, so unless that’s code for “I’m going to get a baby from another country…”

    ::fanning the flames::

  13. joe says:

    I am so shocked at the comment that Jen needs to stop making movies and get pregnant. Women can have a career and children these days. Please name me one other actress who has stopped her career totally to “get pregnant”. What exactly is Jen suppose to do – lie in bed all day trying? To say that a women has to give up her career to have children is out dated thinking. There are many actresses out there that have worked during and after having children it hasn’t slowed them down a bit. Please in your dislike for Jen stop and think about what you are saying and how that impacts women as a whole. To say that a women has to give up her job/career to “get pregnant” sets us back a lot of years.

  14. Lem says:

    oh goody!!! baby number 5!! I bet she’s soo excited.

    I have to say; it’s just so rude for rags to comment on uterus action or after pasta pooch. Either way a star will announce when ready and you just can”t go around calling skinny girls fat for taking a deep breath.

  15. Hieronymus Grex says:

    Again ? What is this the 3rd time now, this year alone ?

  16. I Choose Me says:

    Great clip! Love the Soup.

  17. LuLu says:

    Who’s the Daddy, Chris McMillan? eye roll…

  18. LOL! says:

    LOVE. THIS. CLIP. Omg, seriously soo funny. I don’t get the media manipulation of her. She’s fine. I’d be fine too, sleeping with every hot guy in hollywood. There’s nothing to pity her for.

  19. whatever says:

    I guess when you make a ton of comments about wanting babies right away, the media takes notice. I agree, Cheyenne, she’s been saying one thing and doing something else for about 10 yrs now. Who knows what Jen really wants? And, who cares, anymore–as both she, the press and her fans are ALL SO ridiculous at this point.

  20. Mairead says:

    Congratulations on baby No. 86472.7 Jennifer!

    (at least according to the cod-news articles on the subject over the last 10 years or so – can’t a woman breathe out occassionally?)

  21. DD says:

    sorry for beating a dead horse but cheyenne seriously stop working to have a baby? I’ve never met anyone who quit their job to try to get pregnant. Not even your idol stopped making movies for a second to conceive child, heck she didn’t even wait for the divorce to be finalized.

  22. Firestarter says:

    For someone so barren and child desperate, she has certainly had a few this year!

    Who are the fathers? I know Mayer was the Twin’s dad, but I am not sure of babies 1,3,4 and now 5.

  23. Praise St. Angie! says:

    I have to wonder why people who allegedly “don’t care” about Aniston and “don’t hate” her would give a rat’s azz about her “saying one thing and doing another” in regards to her procreation plans.

  24. whatever says:

    Praise, I have to wonder why YOU CARE so much about what others say about Aniston. Sorry, I don’t worship your favorite celeb! We have right to b*tch about her if we want; she’s constantly in the public eye. AND NO, I don’t believe it’s NEVER her fault, as she’s talked enough about her private life to fuel the media fascination. Her movies certainly aren’t doing good, so that’s all she’s got I guess.

  25. Praise St. Angie! says:

    whoa…guess I struck a nerve there…

    how fun!

    first, she’s not my “favorite celeb”. I don’t have one. they’re people, just like you and I. I don’t act like they know me or care about what I think of them, like some people clearly do.

    second, yes, you have every right to bitch about her…but don’t then try to claim that you don’t care about her, or don’t hate her, when it’s clear that you do. if you actually feel like YOU PERSONALLY are being “betrayed” because some actress is not being honest about her plans for having kids, you need counseling.

    third, who said anything about something “being her fault”?

    the point, since you so obviously missed it (and I wasn’t really referring to you anyway) is that I don’t understand why someone who claims not to care about her would care that she “says one thing and does another” in regards to her plans for procreation.

    didn’t say you’re not allowed to comment on this or anything of that sort. just that it doesn’t make sense to me.

    was that clear enough for you, crabbypants?

  26. Firestarter says:

    Right on Praise St Angie! (love my retro lingo?)

    Anyway, I want to know who the fathers of all the other babies that she has had are! : )

  27. Lem says:

    I think CB should send eyes for lies all the video of Jenny saying she wants children. lol

  28. Mairead says:

    Jaysis no Lem – entire posts analysing her drifting off mid-sentence and mugging to the audience? She wants children, but it’s possibly not an all-consuming yearning for them. Just as she presumably likes the idea of travelling, but not enough to seriously visit anywhere in Mexico other than Cabo.

    I’m assuming it’s like the usual nonsense many people come out with “I’m definitely going to start my book/train for a marathon/take up painting/learn a language”, but just don’t get around to do it – the will is not stronger than the desire sometimes.

  29. Praise St. Angie! says:

    firestarter, I say “Right on!” too…and I get the strangest looks for it!

  30. Lem says:

    Mairead: I don’t think she wants kids. I think she just says it in interviews because she thinks it’s expected. It’s o.k. not to want kids but you have to really have a set to be a 40 y.o. woman and stand up to america & say I don’t want em or even I don’t want them right now. Shame others think they can dictate to your uterus
    I think it would be fun to have an expert saying ‘deceptors’

    St. Ang & Pyro: everybody in colorado says ‘Right on’ (with a Minn. accent)
    Dude, it’s the state motto
    as in: Right On Dude or Dude Right ON

  31. stacy says:

    She has been saying she wants kids for years and people give her crap because she hasn’t had any yet, but i say good for her for not having a baby with just anybody, because that would be the epitome of desperate, and i dont think she is. At least she is being an adult about it and not settling for any old thing. When she does finally start a family i think she will handle her career, family, and everything else with a good head on her shoulders and a heart full of love.
