Happy on Her Own! A Roundup of Jennifer Aniston’s Candid Quotes About Not Having Kids

A-list actress Jennifer Aniston has been married to some of the most handsome actors in Hollywood, so many fans have wondered throughout the years: Does she have kids? Truth is, the Friends star does not have any children of her own — and she’s explained her reasoning on a number of occasions.

Jennifer was married to Brad Pitt from 2000 until 2005, and she also wed Justin Theroux in 2015. In February 2018, she announced her separation from her second spouse after two years of marriage. Despite her two unions, Jen never had babies with either of them.

And even though she doesn’t have any little ones of her own, the legendary actress has opened up about the reason she has yet to become a mom in the past. In fact, she revealed it’s really easy to get fed up with the speculation around her being pregnant.

“If your body is in a normal moment of having had a bite or two, or you’re having a moment of bloat, then there are arrows circled around your stomach, telling you that you’re pregnant,” she told Glamour in August 2017. “And it’s like, actually no, it’s just my body.”

She added, “Not that it’s any of your business to begin with. Having a child, as we know, is no one’s business except the couple or individual that’s going through it.”

Right now, Jen is single and loving it. Her friends have offered to set her up with someone, but all the A-list actress wants to do is just enjoy her own company for a while. “Not right now,” she told radio host Howard Stern in October 2019 after he offered to find a great guy for her. “But listen, I just don’t like being set up. I don’t like it. Hate it.”

In addition to avoiding blind dates, Jen told People she’s “absolutely [not]” interested in using dating apps. “I’m going to just stick to the normal ways of dating. Having someone ask you out. That’s the way I would prefer it,” she dished in June 2021. The Morning Show star noted while she’s keeping her eyes peeled for a potential new beau, walking down the aisle for the third time is “not” on her radar.

“Oh God, I don’t know,” she joked. “I’m interested in finding a fantastic partner and just living an enjoyable life and having fun with one another. That’s all we should hope for. It doesn’t have to be etched in stone in legal documents.”
