Gossip magazines love turning mildly unflattering photos of Jennifer Aniston into “proof” of a baby bump. As a result, Jen has been “pregnant” approximately 50 times over the course of her career — without ever having given birth to a baby. Weird, right?
Undeterred and with the odds of truth stacked against them, Star magazine is currently reporting that the 43-year-old actress is expecting a girl with her fiance Justin Theroux.
According to a source for the mag (via Gossip Cop), Jen “cried tears of joy” upon learning of the pregnancy, though she and Justin have “decided to keep silent” because she’s “scared to death that making a huge public deal over her pregnancy might jinx her.”
So, is Star finally not crying wolf?
Sorry to disappoint, but you really didn’t need to waste your money on that infant-sized “Rachel” wig. Per Gossip Cop, a rep for Jen has slammed the report as “totally made up.”
Jen even had a little fun with this phenomenon of false reporting over the summer, pretending to be pregnant with triplets in a viral ad for SmartWater. If you haven’t seen it, you should stop whatever you’re doing and remedy that, because it’s amazing.
