After their surprise last minute wedding earlier this month, reports are out that Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are now ready to start an instant family. There may be the patter of possibly not-so-tiny feet in their home in the very near future.
While it took a while for them to tie the knot since getting engaged in 2012, the couple is now ready to take the next step in their lives together. However, media reports vary on from which country Jennifer and Justin want to actually adopt a child or two.
There were previously rumors that plans were afoot for the couple to adopt a certain baby girl after their wedding and that this was the cause of the sudden nuptials, but those rumors proved to be false.

However, according to Stuff.co.nz, a source close to the newlyweds said, “Jen and Justin are itching to have a baby and wanted to marry first so they can have their perfect family unit. They’re planning on adopting from the [U.S.], as Jen’s always felt strongly about giving a child from her own doorstep a home.”

The source continued by saying that Jennifer Aniston has always had a strong maternal instinct but realizes at the age of 46, she may not easily be able to fall pregnant naturally, so adoption seems to be the perfect option.
While that report says Aniston and Theroux want to adopt a U.S. baby, another report in Britain’s Sunday Express is talking Mexican. In that report, it states that Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux hope to create an instant family by adopting at least one child, but possibly even two children, from a Mexican orphanage that Aniston has been supporting for around five years.
In this story yet another close source, apparently one of Jennifer’s closest confidants and pals, confirmed that Jennifer Aniston has already been in talks with staff at the Casa Hogar Sion hospice and care home for children in Tijuana. The source said, “They both want this to happen as soon as possible.”
The confidant went on to say that Jennifer has always longed for a daughter, “possibly because her relationship with her own mother has been a lifelong emotional roller-coaster.”
However, they added that Justin Theroux has said he would love to have a son.
“They are undecided whether to adopt two youngsters at once or apply for legal custody of one and wait a while before adopting a second child. It is a complex process involving international laws but they are ready to get going.”
Aniston visited Casa Hogar Sion some years ago and after visiting the youngsters there, co-founded a charity together with her friend, Leigh Kilton-Smith, to help support the orphanage.
The Sunday Express quotes Kilton-Smith as saying Aniston “has come to the rescue so many times to save the kids from falling into positions of desperation.”
According to Jennifer Aniston herself, “Going there is an extremely moving experience.”
“When you drive up to this place, you see these kids running out. They have been given a lot of love and they are getting educated. If there are times they need a little help, I’m so grateful to be able to do that.”
Reportedly Aniston has since been to visit the children on numerous occasions, especially when en route to one of her favorite vacation destinations, Cabo San Lucas.
So, while reports vary and it is unconfirmed whether newlyweds Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux will be adopting a home-grown or Mexican child (or two), it sounds like the couple is more than ready to create an instant family. This could be the perfect way to continue their happy life together after their romantic honeymoon in Bora Bora.
In other recent news, a Facebook fan page fooled its followers by posting was what allegedly Jennifer Aniston’s wedding dress. Only thing is, after the image was shared thousands of times on the Internet, it turned out to be a fake.
