“Friends” alum Jennifer Aniston is not having a baby with husband Justin Theroux. The pregnancy rumor was pushed by OK! Magazine Wednesday and debunked on the same day by Gossip Cop, the website that regularly slams celebrity rumors.
The rumor made it to the cover of the magazine, but that doesn’t mean it’s true. To prove that OK! Magazine regularly regurgitates the same hoaxes, Gossip Cop compiled a list of all the times Aniston was supposedly pregnant.
There are at least four times Aniston was rumored to be expecting. Most of the stories claim she used in vitro fertilization and said she was expecting twin boys. The latest story is a little bit different because it says she is pregnant with a baby girl.
“The buzz is that the last cycle finally took, and she is about three months along now, carrying a girl!” an anonymous source told OK! Magazine.
This, of course, is nothing more than tabloid fodder. Aniston slammed the rumors herself when she wrote an essay for the Huffington Post in July.
“For the record, I am not pregnant. What I am is fed up. I’m fed up with the sport-like scrutiny and body shaming that occurs daily under the guise of ‘journalism,’ the ‘First Amendment’ and celebrity news,’” she wrote. “The objectification and scrutiny we put women through is absurd and disturbing. The way I am portrayed by the media is simply a reflection of how we see and portray women in general, measured against some warped standard of beauty.”
Aside from the constant pregnancy rumors, Aniston was thrust into the news cycle once more when Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt Monday. He famously started a relationship with Jolie after ending his marriage to Aniston. Even though the “Friends” star and Pitt denied it, many assumed he cheated on her with Jolie while they were still married.
