The poster girl for singledom, Jennifer Aniston is back in the headlines today after it was rumoured that the 41-year-old star is going to be a mum – by doing a Sarah Jessica Parker and using a surrogate mum.
Dropping what seem like huge hints during recent interviews, the actress has made it clear that she wants to be a mum. However, after admitting that she wasn’t keen on IVF, she seems to be left with two options: adoption or surrogacy.
Poor Jen. After going through a very public divorce with ex-husband Brad Pitt (who is now the proud daddy to six children with Angelina Jolie), she now can’t leave the house without a new rumour or speculation about her private life! This latest rumour, as reported by Grazia magazine, claims that the star is on the brink of closing a surrogacy deal after secret meetings.
“Jennifer has spent the last few months discreetly looking into the technicalities of using a surrogate mother and has been talking about it very seriously,” the unnamed source told the magazine. “She has been holding private meetings with prospective mums to carry her unborn child. We think she’s narrowed it down to her final two.”
While being criticised by some as trying to “diminishing the role of the dad” after she said in an interview that she wouldn’t rule out artificial insemination, Jennifer has allegedly been inspired by Sarah Jessica Parker, who welcome twins last June by a surrogate.
“Jen is becoming more convinced that surrogacy is the right route,” the source told Grazia.
