Is Jennifer Aniston Pregnant? Hoax Originates From Fake Facebook Page

It was “announced” this week that actress Jennifer Aniston and her betrothed Justin Theroux were expecting their first child. The announcement, however, was a hoax.

The rumor came from a fake Facebook page, which claimed to be “official,” despite spelling the actress’ name wrong (“Anniston”).

Shortly after the fake announcement, the bogus Facebook page disappeared, but by then the rumor had already begun.

US Weekly 2013

This is not the first time pregnancy rumors have circulated in Aniston’s name. Supermarket tabloid US Weekly featured Aniston on its cover in September 2013 with the headline, “Jen’s Big Secret: PREGNANT!”

Aniston’s rep, Stephen Huvane, quickly dismissed that rumor, “None of this ever happened and shame on US Magazine for once again getting it all wrong. Jennifer is NOT pregnant.”

Conan O’Brien

In mid-2013, as rumor swirled about the possibility of an Aniston pregnancy, the actress appeared on Conan O’Brien’s talk show. She poked fun at the pregnancy rumors by giving O’Brien eggs laid by her own chickens.

Aniston has been the target of several other rumors in recent months. A “Friends Reunion” rumor has been going around for over a year, and last month a fake photo allegedly showing Aniston with a bald head made the rounds for several days.

Bottom Line

Jennifer Aniston is not pregnant. The source of the current rumor was a Facebook page which has since been removed.
