Jennifer Aniston is NOT pregnant. Us Weekly made a huge mistake on Wednesday, publishing a cover story that claims the actress is “finally going to be a mom at 44.” It’s 100 percent false, which might be why the outlet has been too embarrassed to put such a big alleged “scoop” on its website.
The story itself claims that Aniston and Justin Theroux are “waiting to share the news” about their “happy secret,” and uses tired tabloid tropes about a supposed baby “bump” and Aniston’s “curiously clear work schedule” to build the case that she’s pregnant.
At one point, Us Weekly alleges that Aniston “postponed a late September photo shoot for a Smartwater ad campaign” because of her supposed pregnancy. There was never a shoot that was cancelled, Gossip Cop has learned.
Us Weekly has tried to stir up drama with Aniston before — wrongly claiming she and Courteney Cox were no longer friends, spreading a false rumor about a photo op with Angelina Jolie, and publishing a bogus story that she and Theroux had broken up last spring. It looks like the outlet is still trusting some bad sources. A rep for Aniston tells Gossip Cop that she is “NOT pregnant.”
