It seems like Jennifer Aniston’s baby dream is coming true! Jen missed an important appearance at the Annual Television Academy Honors on May 2nd and indications are that her absence could be due to morning sickness caused by pregnancy. Jen has been using clever techniques to cover up any baby bump and she has been keeping an open working schedule both indications of a possible pregnancy.
Jen waited years to receive such an honor – as a director and producer of the TV movie ‘Five’ – so it came as a surprise when she dropped out of the ceremony at the last minute. “She’s sick!” Jen’s co-producer Marta Kauffman explained to Life and Style. “Bummer.”
But the catch is that Jen is not bummed out at all since a friend says she might be pregnant! The friend went on “I’d be shocked if she missed the awards for a virus – I thought she probably had morning sickness.”
Jen is not the type to miss commitments – especially red carpet events. But the friend goes on to explain Jen’s absence: “The greatest commitment of all, motherhood, is Jen’s number one priority now. And the actress is cautiously letting her inner circle in order baby plans.” Jen has recently told friends: “I’m going to be a mom one day!” reveals an insider.
Life & Style Print Edition of May 21 reports:
Her joyous news has been a long time coming. Although she and her boyfriend Justin Theroux, 40, just celebrated their first anniversary, becoming a mom he has been on Jen’s agenda for years. “I’ve never in my life said that I didn’t want to have children,” she’s confirmed. “I did and I do and I will.”
But as the years passed and she remained single, Jen knew she had to take precautionary measures to ensure she got her fairy-tale ending. Besides making regular visits to OB -GYN doctor Robert Katz to check hormone levels, “Jen froze her eggs,” elaborates the source. “She did in the three years ago. She decided to do it around her 40th birthday.”
And now that she’s finally found Mr. Right in Justin and switched to a new high profile OB-GYN, Dr. Edward Liu – there’s nothing holding her back from getting pregnant.
“Having experienced everything you don’t want in a partner over time,” muses Jen, “it starts to narrow down… what you actually do want.”
And now the overjoyed couple are daydreaming about 2 AM feedings and first words. But Jennifer and Justin are also being extra careful, taking back doors into restaurants and cutting down on appearances to keep Jen away from the stressful crush of fans. In fact, Life & Style itself can reveal it’s been an astonishing 75 days since Jennifer has stepped foot on a red carpet or shown up for a TV interview. “Jen has not even seen many of her friends for months,” A second pal notes. “She says she’s too busy to get together.”
Is Jen pregnant? Is she waiting as long as possible to make the announcement? Does she want to upstage Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s wedding? What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
