Jennifer Aniston Is Still Not Pregnant

No matter how much tabloids want it to be so, Jennifer Aniston just refuses to cooperate and get pregnant. I will admit that it has been a few months since there has been a nice Jennifer Aniston is pregnant story. The tabloids have been so caught up in her engagement and wedding plans and debut of her ring and the infrequent sightings of Jennifer and Justin together that they have not really brought out the pregnancy stories. This week Star did bring one out and it has been denied by Jennifer's people. Considering the heavy use of surrogates in Hollywood and the fact that Brad Pitt wanted a lot of babies and Jen didn't, do we think Jen even wants kids? I know she has said in the past she does want kids, but, you would think she has had lots of opportunity and has not done so. Maybe she really doesn't, but just has not figured out how to broach that subject with her fans yet. Maybe she is waiting until she gets married.

Oy vey. Enough already. No one cares about the occupancy of her womb.

MISCH said...

It's her business....but if I were her I'd rent a womb...

auntliddy said...

Yes, why the obsession with her being pregnant? I think she likes her life the way it us, and thats fine. If she wanted a baby, she wld hv one. At leadt she takes it with a sense of humor.

donner said...

I know it sells magazines but why does her having kids mean she's a complete person? Can't she just be happy however she chooses to love her life? I mean why does this continue to be an issue? She's also "still not running for President". Does that mean we need to keep asking when she's going to do that as well? People need to stop asking. She's what, 45? Maybe she just doesn't want kids. Does that make her terrible?

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

Somebody apparently does, because it keeps selling tabloids...

Really, it's nobody's business but hers and that of whomever she's involved with at the time; yes, I know I'm saying this on a gossip blog, but enough is enough, please! Perhaps she didn't want kids earlier but does now, or maybe she's never wanted them, or possibly she'd love to have them but can't; in that latter case, can you imagine how hurtful the constant speculation would be?

There are plenty of things I enjoy reading and finding out about people, including celebrities, but the constant emphasis on Having Babies, especially where women are concerned, is frankly getting tedious. I like kids, and they can be just great, but for a variety of reasons not everyone has them, and that's OK--it's not as if humanity is in danger of going extinct, God knows. *shakes head*

surfer said...

Thank you Robin - you verbalized what I was thinking.

Not having children is often a choice, just like having them is.

And as Robin pointed out, maybe she doesn't want them or can't have them.

Not our business. Seriously - who the f*ck cares? Can you imagine if people, and worse, magazines, were constantly speculating about you.

It's enough already.

dee123 said...

Who cares? She's a has been. Flop film after flop film is all she makes now. Besides the only good Jennifer Aniston movie is The Iron Giant.

Patty said...

I am so over this one. All the hullabaloo over her personal life has passed the boring mark and is now becoming a sedative.

Whatever.

Amber said...

PLEASE JUST GET KNOCKED UP AND MARRIED ALREADY SO WE CAN BE DONE WITH THIS. I BEG OF YOU.

Chilie said...

I doubt she wants kids, but would be vilified if she came out and said so. Also, look at who her primary fan base is - middle class women. Most of whom have children.

People get very aggressive when they learn you don't have kids by choice and choose to never have them.

mygeorgie said...

I'm more weirded out by her boyfriend's hairstyle. Dude looks trapped in 1975 and it's such a signature look that changing it will be a shock a la Joe Simpson.

msgirl said...

She's never said a thing about it, I think she likes the constant speculation as it brings her attention. Remember she's quite the media manipulator.

That said, the tabloids are obsessed with "bump" stories, inferring that's the bottom line for all women! A woman who decides not to have kids? FOR SHAME. /sarcasm

Amber said...

@Chilie - they absolutely do and it's weird! In the past, I said I didn't want kids and this guy told me I was SELFISH! I said excuse me but wouldn't it be worse to have kids that I don't want anything to do with?

PuggleMommy said...

I'd like to see her get pregnant and give birth, under everyone's nose. Just to spite them. Reveal the kid when it has a beard and can drive.

SusanB said...

I chose not to have children. I have lived a rich, full life without them. I enjoy them and even worked in pediatrics for 20 years but was delighted to be able to leave them there (not that I wanted them in the hospital - you know what I mean) at the end of the day. Women who don't want children tend not to be good mothers (although there are certainly exceptions). Choosing not to have children does not mean you aren't a "real woman" or cruel, or selfish, or incomplete. Considering how difficult it's getting to feed, clothe and house the expanding population, women who choose not to have children should be celebrated, not scorned.

mygeorgie said...

and 45 y/o? The baby train has long gone. I imagine Jen enjoys any bit of tabloid fodder she can get these days. She gets to roll her eyes & give her standard response, but at least someone's asking. What other 'Friends' stars are even on the radar? Savvy broad.

Audrey said...

I'm 45 and happily without children. Let her enjoy her totless freedom!

Roman Holiday said...

Wow, Enty must be in a good mood today - I detected no snark whatsoever!

Agent**It said...

I used to get a pitiful "why" look until I would say - by choice and I wish more people would exercise the option to NOT have children in this overpopulated world. Then I rag them about their baby daddies and how much money they cost the taxpayer by slutting around and not wanting to work for a living and well, that ends that discussion. SoFla.

PuggleMommy said...

I was surprised by how many questions I would get about our future children, after getting married a year and a half ago. I'm in my mid twenties, and do not want little ones for awhile, I enjoy my freedom and ability to be immature at times. I now give the same spiel each time I am asked. I don't even have to stop and think of what to say, as it is burned into my brain.

Amber said...

LOLOL Agent. Brilliant!

@PuggleMommy - were people asking you at your wedding the instant you said "I Do"? People are so weird.

gloaming said...

@mygeorgie
I agree. I think her publicist's deliberately circulate these stories. The whole 'poor Jen' thing's been flogged to death. She needs something new...

Saffron said...

ditto @Audrey, extremely happy without kids. I adore kids but I adore my freedom even more. So grateful that women have CHOICES that we can made. We don't have to be breeders anymore, we can enjoy our talents and help other less fortunate children & grown ups instead.

Silly Girl said...

I think the obsession started when Brad said he wanted kids and either stated or implied that Jennifer didn't and Angelina did (I'm paraphrasing). Then Jennifer came back and said, but wait, I DO want kids, too! Love ME, Brad!
And from that point on, we've been waiting for Jen to show us just how much she wants to have kids.....

curlyhairslacker said...

@Puggle & Amber-Ha, you all are right and after you have your first child, people ask about having a second one!?! I'm child-free, but have seen this happen to my friends. It's really nobody's business, celebrity or not. Nobody owes an explanation for wanting/not wanting to have kids, IMO.

All about Eve said...

I don't think she wants them and that's her choice and should be respected! Doesn't make her less of a woman! I don't care much for her because I really do think she manipulates the media and maybe the reason she lied and said she did want kids is to keep the attention. As someone pointed out she's the most famous "Friend" out there.

lakeuniongirl said...

I have a whole bunch of kids and it's not for the faint of heart. Why is society so judgemental of women's choices? You would not believe the nasty comments I get from family members about when am I going get a "real job" how come all of your friends are so sucessful (and you're not), blah, blah, blah. Damned if you do and damned if you don't.

Cee Kay said...

I've got no issue with JA not wanting a baby. BUT, I do have a huge problem with her going around insisting otherwise, especially when she did have a hunky husband at home who was more than willing to make it happen. Liars don't sit well with me.

Alma said...

That is bullshit. I think it is selfish for people who don't want kids to have them just to appease society and some silly notion that every woman must obsess over motherhood.

This is another human being and normally when people tell you to have a kid they don't stick around to help raise them. Just ask my ex husband, "please can we have a baby! Please!" Now his ass is gone because children are there all day. They need and want all day every day.

I don't mean to say that all men are like that. There are some great dads out there.


Sugar said...

Add me to the happily married couple that doesn't want any kids list. I was a nanny for 6 years. I blame that. I know too much.

Alma said...

Exactly! I have two toddlers. This is something you better want with all your heart or you will go nuts.

goes in circles said...

I didn't want to have kids. I had an awesome swinging single life with an even more awesome job when I got pregnant by a guy I had been seeing on and off for a couple years. Oops.
Turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to me. I gave up my old life to be a stay at home mom.
And @SusanB
I would like to think I am an exception to your women who don't want kids make bad mothers rule....cuz I am a darn good mom. :)

JoElla said...

Alma and even the, sometimes you wonder why? LOL I'm kidding, but ya'll know what I mean.

I think it is great when a woman knows what she wants regarding kids. I don't get the whole 'oh noes you must have kids' stance.. never did.

Seriously, because I have kids that makes me/not makes me better than someone who does/doesn't have kids?

IMO it is just wasted energy fighting about it.

But what does bother me is when people go off on people who do have kids and call them breaders and such. *NOT* saying anyone here would do that. But we have all come across people who do. Of course I am talking about people who have a family, and not those who have a bazillion kids.

RedHeadMed said...

My hubs and I dated 10 years before we got married (high school sweethearts, I wanted to finish med school). First we got tons of questions about "when are you getting married?" and now it's "when are you having kids?"

I'm a surgery resident, I have 4 years left, and I don't want to be working 80-100 hours a week in a child's formative years. We aren't even sure we want kids, but when I say that, people look at me as if I have 3 heads and try to convince me why I should. It's frustrating.

Alma said...

Ha ha :) Right! To each his own.

hollywood dime said...

I really wish they would lay off of jen and the baby thing. I may not be as simple as "she doesn't want kids" but it could be possible that she like alot of other women is having difficulty getting pregnant. I'm sure hearing about the state of your womb every 2 weeks is tiresome.

NapAssasin said...

I was married 8 years before we had kids. We moved 5 times, acted like idiots with no responsibility and decided if we had kids, great. If not, we loved our lives. I was pregnant a week later and it's been totally amazing. I love my kid so much I want a second one.

In all of that time my husband and I never talked about our desire for a family, or not, to one single person in our family, or our friends. We brushed it off as "we'll see" or "haven't thought about it". Only two people who have to worry about the child for the rest of your fucking life should be involved in deciding to have children. It is no one's business. It's hard to politely tell people to stay out of your uterus, but it sure takes the pressure off. No one can ask if they don't know. Now that we're thinking about having a second one, same policy. We talk about it as a couple, not with our huge, prying families or inquisitive friends. It served us well, either childless or with children.

Jules_345 said...

Your life should not be defined by your children (or lack thereof). I have 3 boys and I would not trade them for anything...but that is only a portion of the person that I am. People that get into other people's business are idiots.

jennifer hansen said...

i've seen commenters on sites like people & usmagazine say how selfish she is for not having kids, like really? since when the fuck does having no kids make you selfish? some women don't want kids that's not a crime.

SusanB said...

@goes in circles - I certainly didn't mean that all women who don't want children wouldn't be good mothers. I know that some have turned out to be great mothers (including you). Unfortunately, the few women I've met who had kids when they said they didn't want them, definitely should NOT have had them. Just my personal observation.

And @lake union girl - my sister had 5 kids (they wanted more and can afford them). She put up with the same crap you do. Unless you have to pay for them or take care of them, how many kids people have is no one's business but theirs. But people are ALWAYS going to find something bad about people who don't totally agree with their take on things.

Mango said...

The obsession with this woman's womb, and the emptiness of it, astounds me.


Dee Lurker said...

I thought this was the general consensus post divorce? Enty...we get it.

But Cameron is older and she's never hinted at kids and no one hates on her...same with Charlize pre-adoption. I agree with poster who said it's more about her acting like she's really into having kids.

Wow, so many commentators with no kids-that is a very hard thing to imagine for Africans. Children are very much a refelection of status/identity/maturity/ambition...but I would never judge others; it is an interesting choice to make imho

PuggleMommy said...

When we start having them, I hope to pop out twins and be done! A girl can dream!

Silly Girl said...

I'll add my two cents here....I can totally relate to not wanting to have kids throughout my 20's and early 30's. Then, I did what everyone else thought I should do: got married and had a kid. Fast forward 9 years, divorced, remarried and now we, together, want to have kids. Guess what? I'm probably too old (44). Fertility isn't working, rhythm method isn't working, bbt isn't working....maybe I should have harvested my (presumably) good eggs when I was 25 so they would be available when I was READY to have a child! In a weird way, I want to encourage every woman who says they don't want kids to harvest their eggs, because what happens if/when you meet the guy, the RIGHT guy, and you want to have a family with him.... and it's too late. :(
You don't HAVE to use them, but their there if you do. (Please, no comments about the cost of harvesting eggs, that's not the issue here).

feraltart said...

When people ask me about children I am very open about our infertility so they maybe won't ask the next person.

Pogue Mahone said...

If I had a dollar for every time I heard she's prego I'd be a millionaire by now! Enough with the "Jen is prego!" stories already! Who CARES!

Sherry said...

Count me as another childless woman. Very very happy. When I was younger I got a little shit for it until I said I'd adopt if I changed my mind. Like breast feeding, breeding is a very personal choice.

therealjadedentrepreneur said...

Hasn't her expiration date passed for being pregnant?

Marie said...

I'm pregnant and I can totally understand why someone wouldn't want to go through this.

Hell, *I* didn't want to go though this, and was totally ok with the diagnosis of infertility given to me by 3 different doctors.

Turns out doctors are just people, and I'm due in 5 days. Luckily hubby has always wanted kids which has made this easier.

Also: GET OUT OF ME!

redronnie said...

@marie lol and congratulations....

Silly Girl said...

@Marie - awesome. good for you! I remember the 'get out' days....it'll all be over soon...oh, those baby smells and snuggles! MISS THOSE!!

Count Jerkula said...

Her ovaries are as black and dead as her soul. Emotionless, controlling fembot. All she is capable of feeling is anger, sadness and jealousy.

White lilly said...

I agree with everyone here. I applaud women who decide not to have kids because I know a few who had them cause they felt pressured and pretty much resent the kid. Not everybody was born to be a parent and that's ok.
And I hear the same lame comments all the f***ing time. I live with my bf and people are always asking me when we are going to get married and/or have kids. I'm still finishing my university and our list of priority is: house, honeymoon, wedding.
And there are also those who consider me already married and start asking about kids... ffs, I'm finishing school!!! I'm an intern, I make shitty money, how on Earth can I afford a kid???
I do want to have kids but it's not all I want in life, it took me 4 years to be able to study and I wanna try to have a career even if I decide to kick everything later to be a stay home mom.
But seriously, whenever I want to have them is just up to me and I wish people would stop asking those annoying questions. And I always think how inconvinient this is, imagine if we were trying to have a baby and wasn't being successful, how frustrating it would be...

JustMe said...

I never wanted kids, enjoyed entertaining my sister's kids and having a rollicking good social life through my 20's and early 30s. Then I met my husband. Decided to have 2 kids close together at age 36 and 37. Gave up my career and stayed home, no one could believe it, me included. Now they are 15 and 16, I totally understand people who never want kids....teenagers are SO much fun! But I wouldn't give them back for anything.

Kiki K said...

No one knows for sure she doesn't want kids. For all we know maybe she has been trying for years and its never happened. Maybe she doesn't want a surrogate or to adopt. Maybe she doesn't want kids. So freakin what, the tabloids need to move on!

Lucas said...

@goes in circles - I know what you mean (except for the actual giving birth part, seeing as how I don't have a uterus or anything). My son was a happy accident and it was the best thing that ever happened to me.
