A Closer source claimed that the emotions surrounding the reunion prompted Aniston to share with her costars the exciting news that she was adopting a child. The insider spilled that the 52-year-old Hollywood legend was adopting a little girl from a Mexican orphanage — but it turns out those rumors are well… just rumors.
Hollywood tabloid magnet TMZ is now revealing that the baby gossip is “false and never happened,” and that Aniston is not a mom (as of now).
Although it looks like we won’t be hearing any baby bombshell news on the special, OK! learned that fans can expect to see some of the original set, including the fountain in the opening credits, during the HBO Max reunion.
The spcial will mark the first time the entire cast — Aniston (Rachel), Courteney Cox (Monica), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe), Matt LeBlanc (Joey), Matthew Perry (Chandler) and David Schwimmer (Ross) — is back together (on TV, that is!) since the show went off the air in 2004.
The original cast will be joined by co-creators Marta Kauffman and David Krane. The special, set to premiere later this year on HBO Max, will be an unscripted hour-long event where the cast will revisit the set and talk about their memories.
As OK! previously reported, a spokesperson for the cable giant said, “In order to avoid any misunderstanding about what this special is, we want to make it very clear that this is not a new, original episode of the series. The cast will be appearing as themselves, not as their beloved characters.”
Friends ran for 10 seasons and consisted of 236 episodes. The comedy went on to become one of the most popular sitcoms of all time — snagging four Primetime Emmy Awards, two Screen Actor Guild Awards and 11 People Choice’s Award wins during its initial run.
As for Aniston, the actress has remained single since her split from actor Justin Theroux in 2018, but an insider exclusively dished to OK! that the A-lister may be looking to rekindle her romance with ex fling John Mayer (the former flames dated briefly in 2009).
Mayer set tongues wagging after he posted a TikTok video on March 23, teasing his new album, that showed him crooning with two canines — one of which looked suspiciously like Aniston's pup, Lord Chesterfield.
"Everyone knows John and Jen's physical connection was off the charts, so it wouldn't be surprising if they hooked up again behind the scenes," spilled an insider, adding that since her split from Theroux, Aniston and Mayer have “gotten closer” and that The Morning Show star is “open to something more.”
