Jennifer Aniston is reportedly considering surrogacy in a bid to have her first child with actor Justin Theroux.
The "We're The Millers" actress is weeks away from turning 45 and a report claims she and Theroux are eager to have a child. While Aniston is open to conceiving naturally, she has reportedly not ruled out the possibility of using a surrogate in order to make her baby dreams a reality.
"Jen is currently exploring the surrogate option. Of course, she'd still love to get pregnant naturally, but she's under no illusion that it would come easily, as she turns 45 on Feb 11," a source told InTouch magazine. "Surrogacy is the perfect solution."
The couple, who got engaged in 2012, rang in the New Year in Mexico during a romantic vacation and it was there that they reportedly discussed starting a family. Aniston has previously been open about her desire to become a mother one day.
"The holiday was an opportunity to spend quality time together and discuss their future and plans for a family," a source revealed. "Now, they are investigating finding the right candidate to carry their child."
The report comes almost one year after insiders claimed Aniston, who was once married to actor Brad Pitt, sought child adoption advice from actress and single Mom Charlize Theron.
"Jennifer has been quizzing Charlize about the adoption process thanks to Chelsea [Handler], who put the two in touch with another," a source previously 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.
In May reports claimed the former "Friends" actress had postponed her wedding to Theroux in a bid to increase her chances of conceiving.
Aniston reportedly underwent Chinese treatments associated with fertility and doctors warned her that the stress often associated with wedding planning could jeopardize her baby plans.
"Jen's begun a series of Chinese medical treatments linked to fertility but she was told the stress of a wedding could decrease her chances of falling pregnant," a source told Now magazine U.K.
