When Horrible Bosses actress Jennifer Aniston revealed she was taking a year off being in front of the cameras, we many assumed it was because she wanted to spen more time with new boyfriend Justin Theroux…
Apparently the reason behind Jen’s sudden withdrawal from movies and the lime light was because she is desperate to settle down and finally stat a family of her own.
A friend close to the actress spills: “Jen talks about kids and babies all the time – about her friends kids, about Courteney Cox’s sever-year-old daughter Coco, to whom she is god mother – and about how, if she ever had a child, she’d do this or that with them.
“If she announced she was pregnant in the next couple of months, no one will be surprised.”
Despite not being together very long, it is not just Jen who is excited about having a baby. The Hangover star Justin is keen to star a family as well, fearing he will soon be too old for the father gig.
“He’s turning 40 and is as ready she is,” continues pal.
Wrapped up in her whorl wind romance with Justin, Jen 42, has only been dating him since May but reportedly the happy couple are already discussing baby names, and the Friends star has confide in a friend that she is hoping for a boy.
With her biological clock ticking Jen is putting any potential wedding plans aside and focusing her energy on starting a family.
Her plays say: “Frankly, we think she is less focused on getting married and much more focused on having a baby. She’s finally in a relationship she adores and wants to do nothing else but hang out and be loved.”
The timing is perfect as Jen feels she’s had her day in the spot light and is ready to take a back seat. After being on screen for over two decades she is tired of being in front of the camera and exhausted with all the traveling it takes to promote a movie. She’s keen for her work life to slow down.
“She wants to star directing,” an insider reveals. “She’s over being ‘the star’. She wants to direct and take time to be back home with her family, that would be her dream.”
If that isn’t enough proof the star is keen to hang up her acting clogs in bid to star a family, Jen recently stated: “I think people what to see me as married, a mum and barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen. And I just want to say, ‘Everybody relax! It’s going to happen!’”
