In what has got to be one of the most tired of all the celebrity rumour-mill stories, this week Jennifer Aniston was once again forced to deny that she is pregnant.
InTouch magazine in the US posted photos of the 47-year-old star enjoying a relaxing holiday with husband Justin Theroux and because the star was looking – shock horror – not a size 0, so she naturally must be pregnant, right?
"It is just another total fabrication," her rep tells Us Weekly. "Jennifer is not pregnant."
We can only assume, Jen’s rep now has that standard response permanently saved and ready to issue out in a moments notice.
“She is not pregnant. Shame on InTouch for making up the whole story, but this is not the first time they have done so. What you see is her having just enjoyed a delicious big lunch and her feeling safe on private property,” her rep added to Entertainment Tonight.
The former Friends star — who married Theroux in 2015 — has faced constant speculation about whether or not she’ll have kids dating all the way back to when she was married to Brad Pitt.
"This is continually said about me: that I was so career-driven and focused on myself; that I don't want to be a mother, and how selfish that is," she told Allure in January 2015.
"I don't like [the pressure] that people put on me, on women — that you've failed yourself as a female because you haven't procreated," she said. "I don't think it's fair. You may not have a child come out of your vagina, but that doesn't mean you aren't mothering — dogs, friends, friends' children."
Let the woman eat lunch and live her life, if one day she does have a baby, then great. And if she doesn’t, well that’s great too.
While we’re on the topic, stop asking any woman – famous or not - if they’re pregnant or planning to be, you don’t know what their situation is and what they are going through.
