Jennifer Aniston is not pregnant with Brad Pitt’s baby, despite an absurd new tabloid cover story. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk the false report. As we’ve already rightly reported multiple times, the former spouses are not even back together, let alone having a child.

But the latest cover of OK! features two separate images of Aniston and Pitt that have been photoshopped together with the declaration, “Jen: Yes I’m Pregnant — With Brad’s Baby!” Of course, the “Friends” star never made any such announcement. And the article inside the issue, which contends “sources are buzzing” that Aniston and Pitt are “finally on their way to becoming a family,” makes clear the magazine doesn’t actually have any confirmation that she’s really expecting.

The story begins with the outlet alleging the exes have been “secretly meeting up for months” at their respective homes, though no proof is offered to support that assertion. The publication then claims that it was “during one of their romantic get-togethers that Jen surprised Brad with a proposal — to have a baby with her.” A so-called “source” contends, “Of course he agreed.” It’s subsequently alleged the pair are now “blissfully, if quietly, happy and planning next steps.”

Notably, nowhere in the story is it actually alleged Aniston is currently pregnant, despite the “Yes, I’m Pregnant” line on the cover. Just as significant is that Gossip Cop already busted the tabloid’s sister outlets, the National Enquirer and RadarOnline, when they claimed in March that Aniston had asked Pitt to be her “baby daddy.” As we reported then, a rep for the “Friends” star denied the allegations were true, and People had already confirmed that Pitt and Aniston had not even seen each other in “ages,” and did not want to reunite romantically.

Other aspects of this new cover story are also untrue. For example, it’s wrongly alleged Aniston’s house is for sale, which was debunked by “Entertainment Tonight” back in February, and it’s falsely claimed that she and Pitt are “discussing moving in together,” a notion that Gossip Cop disproved in April. In other words, this article is actually an amalgam of old, disputed contentions with no evidence whatsoever that there is any merit to them. On top of that, Aniston’s spokesperson also denies this “baby plan” narrative is accurate, exclusively telling us that it’s “all made-up and completely false.” And while Pitt’s rep declined to comment on the record, a confidante literally laughed aloud upon learning of these ridiculous, off-base claims.

Gossip Cop must also mention that OK! has a documented history of falsely impregnating actresses. In fact, last August the tabloid insisted Aniston was pregnant with a “miracle baby.” We busted that cover story when it came out, and time has proven our reporting was correct. Time has also shown that the magazine has a habit of presenting the same storylines over and over, regardless of reality.

Conclusion: OK! announces on the cover of its new edition that Aniston is pregnant with Pitt’s baby, but inside the issue, there is no claim that she’s currently expecting. Instead, the article is filled with assertions that have already been debunked by their camps as well as reputable media outlets, such as People and “Entertainment Tonight.” Additionally, the publication has a track record of fabricating tales about Aniston having a baby, and her spokesperson confirms this latest one is just as “made-up” as those that have come before it. Furthermore, a Pitt confidante laughed off the claims as untrue. As a result, Gossip Cop has concluded this cover story is false.
