Jennifer Aniston is reportedly seeking child adoption advice from actress Charlize Theron with a new report claiming the bride-to-be is eager to start a family.
The former "Friends" star is said to be weeks away from her wedding to fiance Justin Theroux, 41, and the actress has reportedly been researching different ways that the couple can start their family after their big day. Aniston. 44, is said to have turned to Theron, who is a single mother, for advice.
"Jennifer has been quizzing Charlize about the adoption process thanks to Chelsea [Handler], who put the two in touch with another," a source told RadarOnline.
"She's seriously considering that as an option, given her age and the fact that Charlize says it's the most rewarding thing she's ever done," the source continued.
Aniston has previously been open about her desire to have a baby, however the source claims that in addition to adoption, surrogacy is also being considered. The actress is currently undecided.
"...She hasn't decided entirely, with surrogacy another possibility for Jennifer because she definitely does want to have kids," the source revealed. "However, at the moment she's just concentrating on her wedding to Justin. After that, she will decide what to do next."
Aniston will reportedly marry Theroux shortly after she wraps up filming her untitled Elmore Leonard project on March 8. Aniston helped design her own dress, according to Grazia magazine.
"Jen and Justin want to make it a really special day and they're very excited. Apparently, Jennifer has been working with Valentino on a dress and has been heavily involved in the designing process," a source told Grazia. "Justin intends to wear an Armani tuxedo."
The couple is believed to have invited 50 guests to what will be an intimate ceremony followed by a small reception. Aniston's ex-husband Brad Pitt has not been invited.
"Jen and Justin's wedding will be an intimate affair with close friends and family, and Jennifer's ex-husband Brad Pitt is definitely not on the guest list," a source told Britain's Grazia magazine.
"They have also requested that instead of gifts, guests donate money to a children's hospice," the source explained.
