Jennifer Aniston is, allegedly, expecting her first child at 51 via a surrogate.
Last week, rumors swirled that Brad Pitt’s formerly rumored girlfriend, Alia Shawkat is pregnant. Now, New Idea is claiming that the Arrested Development star happens to be a surrogate for Jennifer Aniston.
A source told the tabloid that Pitt and Shawkat’s relationship never really progressed into anything romantic. And the two treat each other like they are siblings.
Jennifer Aniston, Alia Shawkat’s rumored link
Due to this, the Ad Astra actor, allegedly, suggested to his ex-wife, Aniston that they should hire Shawkat as their surrogate.
“He loves her and trusts her as much as any family member, which is rare for him. He usually keeps his card very close to his chest, but he let Alia in on his desire to help Jen have a baby,” a source said.
Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt allegedly got back together
Over a decade ago, Aniston was asked about the prospect of having kids with Pitt. She said that she and her then-husband wanted to have at least two children. But just a year after the interview, the A-listers announced their separation.
According to New Idea, Aniston’s dream of having a baby and sharing the experience with Pitt will finally come true. After all, Jennifer Aniston and Pitt allegedly got back together.
“Now that she and Brad have got it together again, her desire to have his baby hasn’t changed. Brad is anxious to make it up to Jen by making her a mom, but they both know that time is not on their side biologically,” the source said.
The insider also claimed that the Friends star would be more than happy just to have a child regardless of how it could happen. And Shawkat is, allegedly, a wonderful choice for a surrogate because she’s selfless and fantastic.
Is Angelina Jolie jealous?
And to make the tabloid’s story more convincing, the source mentioned Pitt’s other ex-wife, Angelina Jolie. They claimed that it is unclear if the Maleficent star is jealous.
But Jolie and Pitt’s children, most especially Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, is, allegedly, excited to welcome her dad and Aniston’s baby.
“Shiloh has already volunteered to babysit – she can’t wait – and the rest of the younger kids are busy helping to come up with baby names,” the source said.
However, one should take the claims made by the tabloid with a grain of salt. Shawkat is not pregnant. And she hasn’t been hired as Pitt and Aniston’s surrogate.
According to Gossip Cop, it is unlikely for A-listers like Aniston and Pitt to hire a fellow actress as their surrogate. While surrogacy is common in Hollywood, celebrities don’t usually do this for their high-profile pals.
The rumor-debunking site also reached out to a rep for Jennifer Aniston and was told that the tabloid’s claims are “ridiculous.”
