Jennifer Aniston has been spotted with a bump and rumour has it that the actress is six months pregnant with her first child.
The Friends star has not attended a number of big Hollywood events recently fuelling speculations that she is expecting.
Aniston, 42, has been dating boyfriend Justin Theroux for some time now and the couple share a place in New York.
Aniston, who has spoken frequently of her desire for children, was seen last week with a noticeable bump, which she tried to conceal under a wide coat.
“She wouldn’t have wanted to make a big deal but she must be so excited,” the Mirror quoted a friend as telling Look magazine.
“If anyone ever asked if she was worried about running out of time, she’d reply, ‘I’m absolutely having kids there’s not one doubt in my mind’,” the friend added.
The actress denied in October she was pregnant when she and Theroux were photographed leaving a clinic.
According to reports, the couple had fertility treatment last year.
She has also finally managed to quit a long addiction to smoking, but denied last year that pregnancy was not the reason, attributing her fuller figure to her appetite increasing since she gave up cigarettes.
Aniston was noticeably absent from the Golden Globes this week, where ex husband Brad Pitt was nominated for best actor.
She and Theroux have quit LA and have moved into an apartment in New York, where they prefer to keep a low profile.
According to Hollywood Life, Aniston’s breasts looked like those of a pregnant woman when she attended an awards bash.
