Jennifer Aniston: I Still Want to Be a Mom

Jennifer Aniston got candid at a press conference this weekend for her upcoming movie The Switch, in which she plays a 40-year-old woman who decides to get pregnant via a sperm donor despite not having a husband.

We can’t help but think about Jen’s real life—she’s 41, single, and has never had kids. But according to People, she doesn’t believe she needs a man in order to have a little one.

"Women are realizing it more and more knowing that they don't have to settle with a man just to have that child," Jen told the press. "Times have changed and that is also what is amazing is that we do have so many options these days, as opposed to our parents' days when you can't have children because you have waited too long."

Jen went on to say what she loves about this film. "The point of the movie is what is it that defines family? It isn't necessarily the traditional mother, father, two children and a dog named Spot," she said. "Love is love and family is what is around you and who is in your immediate sphere. That is what I love about this movie. It is saying it is not the traditional sort of stereotype of what we have been taught as a society of what family is."

So does this mean Jen is finally thinking about becoming a mom? "Yeah, I have said it years before and I still say it today," she replied.

We’d love to see Jen with a little baby! We wonder if she’ll adopt or do it the way her character does in The Switch!
