Hot Topic Tuesday: Baby Bump Watch Or Engagement Watch?: Jennifer Aniston

I can't believe we are doing this again, Jennifer Aniston is sure keeping me on my entertainment journalist toes this summer.  I want to thank all of the amazing Aniston fans that have emailed, tweeted, commented, and Facebooked me over the past few days.  Jen's trip to Europe with Justin Theroux has been filled with paparazzi photos with the final set of pics coming from Capri.  Jen is rocking her bikini, but some of you speculated that while she looks great, her body is a little less in shape than usual.  (I am treading  carefully on this because I hate to criticize someone's weight if they just gained a few pounds versus pregnancy pounds. Hey, my body has never looked like Jen's body, so I'm always envious!)  Here's a photo from her fantastic outing in Capri on a boat with her man.  What do you think?

Oh, but let's not stop here with the speculation because Justin and Jen arrived back in LA and guess who is wearing a ring--a diamond ring?  Yes, she's got a rock on her right finger which really can mean everything or nothing.  It could be a ring she has had forever.  Have you ever seen this ring before in her wardrobe?  I know some of the Aniston sleuths out there are on the case.  The interesting thing I noted is that she reaches up for sunglasses in the photo.  Many celebs will do something like this to make an "unofficial" official announcement. Jen isn't one to make statements through the press like "I'm pregnant!", "I'm engaged!" unlike some celebrities. So, is this just a ploy to throw us off or is our gal, Jen, officially engaged to Justin Theroux?  Expect some heavy press on this one because there are going to be a lot of "sources" coming out of the woodwork on this story.  The press has been trying to marry and impregnate Jen for a decade.

Okay, your turn.  Tell me what you think!  Let's start the debate.  This is also NOT the time to tell me she just got engaged because Angie and Brad got engaged.  Sorry, that ship has sailed and Jen and Brad have moved on.  No love triangle arguments, please.  Thank you!  You know what to do:  comment below, on Twitter, or on Facebook.  

June 28th, 2012:  So this rumor is a bust since even E! hopped on the Jen engagement rumor mill and featured it in their segment, "So True, So False".  Thanks for all of your comments and helpful links.  We are all in this together.  Have a great weekend, kids!

July 20, 2012:  The Spreecast is officially happening!  If you have questions, make sure to RSVP and get your questions in here.  The live chat will happen Monday, July 23rd at 6:30PM PT/9:30PM ET for 30 minutes.  I will be covering the entertainment news of the day and answering your Aniston questions that I haven't been able to get to lately because I have 
been working.  See you on Monday, this should be fun! 

July 24, 2012:  If you missed the live chat, the archive is here.  We will be doing another one 
on Monday, July 30th, same time, same place.  I hope to see you there!

July 25th, 2012:  I used one of Emmy's questions in this week's Behind The Red Carpet (taped) episode.  See it here.

July 29th, 2012:  Remember, Monday is another LIVE broadcast at 6:30PM PT/9:30PM ET.  All of the information is here.  I also have several of your email questions that I will answer 
and address.  I will see you tomorrow!

July 30, 2012:  I made an official call on the Baby Bump Watch on the show last night.  Here is what I said:  Spreecast archive.

August 12th, 2012:  Darn it!  I should have kept the Engagement Watch going, forget the Baby Bump Watch.  Congrats to Jen and Justin who are OFFICIALLY ENGAGED!  See the Gossip Cop item confirming the news.  


  1. She was already wearing that ring at the begining of the trip: http://imageupper.com/i/?S0200010020071U13397109572285415
    plus it's on the wrong hand...I don't know what to think.

  2. Hi Kristyn,

    Love the new post, and once again thank you for being one of the very few respectful and polite entertainment reporters!

    Jen's rep has already denied the ring story to this site, and they have photos of her wearing it dating back to February 2011:


  3. Kristyn, check out these photos of them from Capri from the UK weeklies where Jen is often covering herself with her bag:





  4. Kristyn love the new post: you're a doll!

    As the posters above have noted, she's had the ring for awhile. I did think the same thing as you about her displaying it for the cameras and that maybe meaning something, but those photos from Wonderwall confirm she's had it for more than a year.

    Still her rep never said they aren't engaged, just that she's had the rings for some time:



    1. People has a story about the rings today and it's the same thing: nobody is saying they aren't engaged, just that the rings have been worn by her in the past. Is it possible that they've been engaged (or just got engaged) and are trying to keep it private...and the rings don't have anything to do with it at all? There is a new blind item (that could be made-up or be true and about a lot of celebs!), that could fit with them being engaged and planning a wedding soon:

      "These two celebrities (one more famous than the other) will be getting married this summer. The wedding will be held at a resort, and all the top-secret preparations are being made using code names.

      The bride is concerned about the weather (she has other concerns too, but this is the one on which she is currently focused) . She doesn’t want it to be too hot to hold the ceremony outdoors. Right. Good luck controlling the weather.

      The ceremony and party will be rather small and intimate by Hollywood standards (under 200 people), but the couple is definitely not scrimping on the arrangements. They are paying for more than one private plane to whisk guests in for the event, and the resort will be practically shut down to allow for total privacy for the bride and groom and their guests."


      While other guesses include Berry and Martinez, Biel and Timberlake, and Cyrus and Hemsworth, I think Jen and Justin fit the "clues" better than the rest for a few reasons. They both fit the "both are celebrities, with one more famous than the other" part of the clue better than the rest of the couples mentioned who are more evenly matched fame-wise. The clue also alludes to the celebs being fairly private since they are planning the "top secret" wedding using code names (something Jen did when marrying Brad), and this fits Jen and Justin exactly, whereas all the other couples mentioned have made their engagements public and don't seem to be that private, other than perhaps Biel and Timberlake.

      The clue also says the wedding is to be held at a resort and notes the bride is concerned it would be too hot to hold the ceremony outdoors, which implies somewhere tropical. Jen is known to love Mexico (specifically the One & Only Palmilla Resort) and both she and Justin also love Hawaii...both tropical locations sure to be quite hot this summer. None of the other celebs mentioned seem to have strong ties with tropical climate resorts, and Biel and Timberlake have been rumored to be having their wedding in either Santa Barbara or Europe, neither of which would be areas to be concerned about really hot weather. The clue also notes that the wedding will be small and intimate by Hollywood standards which also fits Jen and Justin better than the other guesses.

      And the part of the clue that points most to Jen and Justin for me is the part noting that the couple are not scrimping on details, will pay for more than one private jet to bring guests, and the resort will practically shut down for them. This part means that the couple have to have quite a lot of money and power and the only ones I see fitting this are Jen and Justin. I'm not even sure if the others travel much or at all by private jet (or would have need to in order to maintain privacy), but Jen only travels privately on domestic flights or flights to Mexico.

      Plus, if this is about Jen and Justin maybe the "other concern the bride has" could be a pregnancy? What do people think?

    2. This blind item reads as Justin and Jessica to me versus Jen and Justin. I know the Timberlake/Biel wedding is imminent.

  5. Posted this on the Bump Watch thread, but it's relevant here too. Some scans of two UK tabloids that are carrying photo of Jen and Justin in Capri...really cute photos!



  6. Kristyn have you seen these new photos of Jen outside George Clooney's home in Lake Como last weekend? Check out her side profile:




    There certainly seems to be a little bump there, right?

    1. Hmmm......baby bump or eating too much good food in Europe? We are nearing a deadline. If she's pregnant, she would be entering her second trimester by mid-late July. We will have to watch the photos carefully!

    2. Check out this photo too - Justin is taking her picture on their balcony in Capri and she is posing smiling for him with her hand on her tummy:


      If that's for sure her in the Lake Como photos (as the sites carrying them are saying), it looks more like a little beginning bump then a "food baby" to me." She isn't bigger anywhere else, and the shape looks very much like a tiny baby bump. She would probably be around 11 to 12 weeks along in those photos if she is pregnant. So one would expect she would start showing now or soon. But then, Megan Fox is reportedly several month along (as much as 7 according to some sources) and only started showing a few weeks ago. She wasn't showing at all at 4 and 5 months along. The point: every woman carries differently!

    3. What the Hell, I want to be hanging out with George Clooney at is home in Lake Como, who cares about Jennifer Anniston. (feeling jealous)

    4. sorry, AT Lake Como, and sorry for saying H#*% it was a knee jerk reaction. ;)

  7. Kristyn what do you think of the new photos from x17 of Jen with Justin and Shirley MacLaine out to dinner last night? There seems to be a bit of bump there:


    1. It could be the dress or it could be a little tummy. Her tummy is not as in shape as much as it has been in the past. (Again, she still has an awesome body.) I think we need to look carefully at photos the next few weeks.

    2. I think you're right! You can really see that her tummy is rounded on the video if you pause it as she walks out and turns to show her side. Plus, she usually gets really in shape when she's about to film a movie (loses weight and tones up even more than usual), but that's not the case right now since she's going to be filming We're the Millers starting this week. Hopefully we will get more photos of her on set once she gets to Wilmington.

      We have to remember though that she might only be just around the 3 month mark now and many women don't really show until even further along in a pregnancy. It could still be a few weeks before a real "bump" appears if she is pregnant!

    3. Also you interviewed Reese Witherspoon when she was about 3 months along according to the rumors of how far along she is now, and you didn't think she was pregnant at all at that point! Plus, Reese is on her third pregnancy and usually women show sooner in subsequent pregnancies. So it's quite possible that Jen might not truly show until a few more weeks.

    4. Yes, everyone carries differently or shows at different times......or she could be undergoing some type of fertility treatments which sometimes cause similar effects.

    5. That's true too! Though I wonder would she really be doing that sort of thing right now as she's about to start a new movie on location? Seems like an odd time, but I guess it's possible.

      I went and looked at your February interview with Reese and she's even wearing a form-fitting dress and doesn't look at all pregnant really, despite being 3 months along on a third pregnancy. In fact, she looks less pregnant at that time then Jen seems to at the moment! And she fluctuated in her first trimester looking more and less pregnant at times too, so I guess it is hard to tell. We'll have to wait for the next photo set to pour over I guess!

    6. At her age, any time would be a good time because she doesn't have a lot of time. LOL--I used the word "time" a lot in that sentence.

    7. Good point! Time really isn't on her side, so she probably was or is doing everything she can to make it happen for her, regardless of work projects. I don't know if you've heard this interview of hers, but back in March she talked to an Australian radio show (the Kyle and Jackie O Show) and Jackie O asked her if she had any pregnancy news to share at the end of the interview (around the 17 min point), and she agreed with Kyle to, "give me a chance [to get pregnant], exactly" and that "you know you'll hear it straight from me WHEN that does happen," so it does seem like she was working on it at the time:


      And I saw this scan from an Australian tabloid that covered her and Justin's trip to Capri and thought it was interesting in this discussion too. Grain of salt and all given the source, but they do mention that despite there being wine on the table during their yacht trip lunch, Jen didn't have any:

      "They looked happy," an onlooker tells NW, adding that there was a bottle of wine on the table, but Jen didn't have any.


      I thought that was interesting since the photos that the Daily Mail had of them on the yacht showed Justin picking the wine (and Jen looking pretty disinterested), and you can see that Jen has a glass of water in front of her, while Justin is the only one with an empty wine glass in front of him:


    8. she also said when she was with Tate she wanted to be a young mom, she also said i do i will about 7 years ago..give it up..she is NOT pregnant and as far Reese she has had TWO children already, are you really comparing her pregnancy to jens supposed pregnany, not to mention aniston is set to play a stripper AND she is signing on to a few other movies, do tell when exactly is she suppose to have this baby, you ppl are hilarious, keep waiting for the baby that will never come..yes aniston who just showed her bikini bod is 3 months preggers LMAO

    9. I'm thinking about doing a live webcast on Monday, July 23rd at 6:30PM PT/9:30PM ET. Is anyone interested? Let me know and we can talk about Jen and the possible baby bump.

    10. Yes, that would be great!

    11. Get ready for another live broadcast tomorrow! All information is above!

    12. I made an official call on the Baby bump watch. Scroll the article to see my July 30th post in this article. :)
