"I never in my life said I didn’t want children," Jennifer Aniston told Vanity Fair in 2005. "I did and I do and I will!" And now, with her 40th birthday less than a year away, Jen is on the hunt for a man to finally help her make that long wished-for baby a reality.

OK! has learned that the actress is focusing on two men in particular: Owen Wilson and Brian Bouma, a Vancouver-based key grip she met while filming Traveling in the Canadian city.

"Both men have some of Jen’s favorite qualities: Brian has the height and looks, while Owen can make her laugh," Jen’s friend tells OK!. "Either one would be a good choice for Jen."

Jen, 39, is currently with Owen in Miami shooting Marley & Me, and the pair have been getting along famously. But with rumors of Owen’s ex-gal pal Kate Hudson being back in the picture, is the Oscar-nominated actor and writer even available?

"He isn’t seeing anyone seriously; he wants to keep his options open," a pal of the actor tells OK!.

As far as Brian goes, Jen is keeping her options open about him! The hunky Canadian visited her in L.A. during Oscar weekend and is planning a trip to Miami soon.

"Brian’s a really good guy," a source tells OK! exclusively. "He’s a bit overwhelmed by all the attention since he’s been identified as Jen’s boyfriend. They still talk on the phone with each other."
