Jennifer Aniston recently talked about her struggles with infertility after years of being accused of not wanting to give her ex-husbands' children. During her interview, the Friends star also revealed that she tried IVF for years.
"It was a challenging road for me, the baby-making road. In my late 30s, 40s, I'd gone through really hard [expletive,] and if it wasn't for going through that, I would've never become who I was meant to be. I was trying to get pregnant." I was going through IVF, drinking Chinese teas, you name it. I was throwing everything at it," she told Allure.
Jennifer Aniston Adopting A Baby Girl After Years Of Being Encouraged By Her A-List Pals?
During the same interview, Aniston also admitted that the baby-making ship has already sailed for her. But according to In Touch Weekly, the actress decided to go a different route by adopting a baby girl.
A source claimed that Aniston's friends, Reese Witherspoon and Sandra Bullock, have been encouraging her to adopt a baby, and she finally did.
"Her friends like Courteney Cox and Reese Witherspoon have been urging her to adopt for years. She obviously has the means to adopt and give a child the best of everything. She could hire multiple nannies. But that's not what she wants. She wants to be hands-on – changing diapers, doing school drop-offs, all of it. If she's going to do this, she doesn't want to miss out on anything," the source said.
Jennifer Aniston Will Raise Her Baby Girl In Her New Farmhouse?
The source added that Aniston would most likely raise her daughter in the new property that she bought.
"She bought a Tuscan-style farmhouse in Montecito. It's the perfect place to raise her daughter, out of the spotlight and away from Hollywood. This is an amazing new chapter in Jen's life. She's excited about the future and couldn't be happier," the source said.
Aniston allegedly decided to finally adopt a baby because of the death of both her parents. Growing up, Aniston had a fraught relationship with her late mother, Nancy Dow, and father, John Aniston.
"It really brought up a lot of feelings. She didn't want that to hold her back. Also, Jen made peace with her mother before she died, so now Jen has no hesitation about raising a child of her own," the source said.
Jennifer Aniston Reveals Her Frustration Over Comments Made About Her Not Getting Pregnant?
Years ago, Aniston was accused of putting her work as an actress over her marriage and motherhood.
"I got so frustrated. Hence that op-ed I wrote [for The Huffington Post in 2016]. I was like, 'I've just got to write this because it's so maddening and I'm not superhuman to the point where I can't let it penetrate and hurt.' I have zero regrets. I actually feel a little relief now because there is no more, 'Can I? Maybe. Maybe. Maybe.' I don't have to think about that anymore.' I feel the best in who I am today, better than I ever did in my 20s or 30s even, or my mid-40s. We needed to stop saying bad shit to ourselves," she said (via Yahoo! News).
