Rumors that Jennifer Aniston has a pregnant belly have upset the actress. While giving an interview earlier today, the star expressed fatigue with all of the chatter. However, she didn’t deny that she is sporting a baby bump in 2013.
In an interview with ABC News, the actress discussed what it was like playing a mom in her upcoming film and how the press reacted with questions about her own personal life, saying that reporters were "trying to relate it to the movie with, 'Oh, if I was to have a child how many kids do I want?' And 'do I want a boy or a girl?'"

The actress went on to praise her boyfriend and the people who surround her, for helping her get through these tough times:
"I surround myself with my amazing work, my amazing friends, my amazing partner, my beautiful dogs, and I tune that noise out. I mean, I think it's very sweet that people want everything for me,"
Dr. Gail Saltz, a psychologist and author, spoke with Fox News today and discussed why the nation is so concerned with whether or not Jennifer Aniston was pregnant. In her diagnosis, a familiar face was mentioned--Jen’s ex-lover, Brad Pitt:
“She is a very sexy woman, she is no longer 20-something (i.e. she is perceived as having a ticking biological clock,) she is famous for NOT having a child with Brad Pitt who went on to have children with another woman. Pregnancy is seen as this kind of feminine power, the ability to procreate. Jennifer is a well-liked celebrity that many imbue with a feminine power by virtue of her persona and being admired. These things unconsciously drive us to expect she will be expecting.”
Despite Jennifer constantly denying baby rumors, many magazines continue to report as if she is. In Touch, for example, claims that the actress is undergoing IVF, telling readers:
"She knows the clock is ticking--she’s well aware of it. She’s also done her homework. She’s explored all methods for having a baby and knows what her options are with IVF. She’s educated herself. There is no desperation. If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be.”
Those aren’t the only rumors Aniston is denying. She is also on the defense about her wedding, which keeps getting rescheduled, telling a group of reporters that:
"We just want to do it when it's perfect, and we're not rushed, and no one is rushing from a job or rushing to a job. And, you know, we already feel married. We have yet to set any dates. There have been no canceled weddings. There have been no postponed weddings. There have been no arguments about where to get married. Just clearing all that up.”
