Jennifer Aniston, who has been holding court on a number of talk shows recently, was spotted on the red carpet for the premiere of her new film, Life of Crime, looking a little plump around the tummy.
There’s no doubt that Aniston looked as good as ever, sporting a silver disco-ball dress and full of smiles and waves as usual — but what about the obvious weight gain?
Many people spotted the extra weight around the midriff which lead to reports in the media today that the Friends star might actually be expecting.
OK! magazine reported that an insider revealed to them that there is talk within Jennifer Aniston’s inner circle about a forthcoming baby, although nothing has been confirmed as yet,
“Buzz in Jen’s inner circle is that she’s nearly three months along but doesn’t want the news to come out until she knows for sure that the baby will be okay,” said the source.
Apparently, Jennifer is well aware of the potential risks involved with conceiving at the age of 45, but that reportedly isn’t stopping her from go ahead with her plans to become a mother.
The source explained what’s happening behind-the-scenes.
“Jen started having fertility treatments six months into the relationship. She knew the older she got, the harder it would be to get pregnant, so she had her eggs frozen. With regular attempts at in vitro fertilization, she was hoping to get lucky, but she didn’t dare think about it too much because of the chance for disappointment.”
Aniston herself has given mixed messages on the issue during her whirlwind round of talk show appearances recently. Firstly, there was the Today Show interview with Carson Daly in which Aniston got very emotional when she spoke about the pressure that she feels in life.
“It’s always such an issue: Are you married yet? Have you had babies yet? I don’t have this sort of checklist of things that have to be done… and if they’re not checked, then I’ve failed some part of my feminism or my value as a woman because I haven’t birthed a child.”
According to those comments, one might deduce that Jennifer Aniston feels stressed about the fact she is still childless as she enters her late 40s.
But another inside source claimed that Aniston said those things during that interview “to throw people off. Jen rarely talks that in depth about her feelings and personal life. She really does not want the world to know that she could be pregnant.”
Even though Aniston is still not a mom, she has been very vocal over the years in expressing the fact that she has a deep desire to have baby. Hopefully, the extra tummy weight she has gained isn’t due to ice cream and cookies but rather that, after all these years, she has finally conceived.
