Is Jennifer Aniston pregnant? Rumors surfaced after the actress was spotted on the beach with a maybe baby bump. Aniston and her husband, Justin Theroux, were claimed to be expecting, according to a faulty report by Hollywood Life.
Thanks to Gossip Cop, the rumors regarding the television and film star’s pregnancy have come to a halt. According to the celebrity myth busting website, Hollywood Life went to town with speculation regarding Jennifer Aniston’s supposed baby bump. The headline was filled with sensationalism and outlandish statements.
“Is Jennifer Aniston’s alleged bump the biggest mystery of 2016? With all eyes on her mid-section for a hint of pregnancy, the actress opted to wear nothing but baggy clothes for an entire weekend in NYC. Suspicious much?”
The Jennifer Aniston pregnant rumors only became progressively crazier as the story continued. Hollywood Life backtracked on their claim about her baby bump, asking “Is she or isn’t she” expecting. The website then writes that Aniston has been fending off pregnancy rumors for years on end. This all reaches a high point of crazy when the online tabloid claimed that Aniston isn’t “fighting back against talk that she might be pregnant!” Well, that’s false. Last week, Jennifer Aniston spoke out almost immediately after In Touch decided to join in on the baby bandwagon.
Jennifer Aniston’s pregnancy rumors were initially sparked once again last week when In Touch published an entire cover for their print edition, accompanied by a spread congratulating the couple. The tabloid made the insane claim that they could “exclusively confirm that the 47-year-old is pregnant with baby No.1.” The magazine also decided to include their usual inconspicuous friend, who not only acts as a source, but elaborates on the lengthy claim.
Jennifer Aniston’s pregnancy “announcement” was accompanied by a fake source that very blandly states “She’s pregnant” and then proceeded to use the usual trope about how happy the couple was to have a child.
“She and Justin are ecstatic. Jen has wanted to have a baby with Justin for years. Their baby news came at a bad time in her life, too — she just lost her mother, and she and Justin almost broke up. But now this surprise pregnancy has turned the worst of times into the best of times.”
Jennifer Aniston pregnant rumors were finally debunked by Gossip Cop. A rep for Aniston told the website point-blank that Jennifer “is NOT pregnant.” The heroic representative even went on a tirade shaming both Hollywood Life and In Touch for perpetuating such outlandish rumors. The online myth-busting magazine went for the jugular and referred to Hollywood Life as “HollywoodLies” and said the publication “deserves that same shame, particularly since this is the second time it has run such a speculative story in the last five days.”
Jennifer Aniston’s pregnancy possibility has always been a hot topic amongst the tabloids. In early 2015, Aniston told the Hollywood Reporter in an interview that starting a family has “been a want,” according to a recent report done by Headline & Global News. Still, Jennifer Aniston claimed that she felt that there was something bigger she was interested in at the time. Aniston also said something greater was calling out to her. The celebrity also addressed her frustration in how she is constantly accused of putting her career before family life.
“The accusation that I’ve put my career before the want, the desire to be a mother. This continually is said about me: that I was so career-driven and focused on myself; that I don’t want to be a mother, and how selfish that is.”
It is unknown if Jennifer Aniston is trying to get pregnant or if she wants to have children.
