Congratulations are in order for Jennifer Aniston!
The 45-year-old actress’ half-brother, Alex “AJ” Aniston, has reportedly welcomed his first child, a baby boy, with his girlfriend, Adriane Hallek.
According to Australia’s ‘Woman’s Day’ magazine, Alex and Adriane, both 25, became first-time parents to little Ryat last week in LA.
While it is unknown if Jennifer has met her new nephew, she and her half-sibling — the pair share the same father, actor John Aniston — have allegedly had a rocky relationship in the past.
In fact, AJ has previously spoken out about how frustrating it can be to have such a famous sister.
Jennifer with her father, John, in February 2012.
“It’s been a pain in my a** for years. No comment,” he told ‘Mail Online’ when asked about Jennifer’s fame at the 2013 ‘Burning Man Festival’ in Nevada.
Unfortunately, the ‘Cake’ star’s estranged relationship with AJ isn’t her first strife with family — she once had complicated ties with her mother, Nancy Dow, though the duo have since reconciled.
Hopefully AJ and Adriane’s new addition will bring the Aniston family back together so Jen — who also has a maternal half-brother, John Melick — can take on her new role as an aunt!
