Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston reportedly told a child before their marriage collapsed. Aniston has been adamant about her desire to have children several times throughout her career, and an insider now claims that she and Pitt were actively preparing to have a child together. But their family plans were set indefinitely when Angelina Jolie came into the picture.
Jennifer Aniston on having children while she was married to Brad Pitt
There has been much speculation as to why Pitt and Aniston’s marriage did not work out. While some fans blamed Jolie for their split, others claimed they divorced because Aniston did not want any children.
But Aniston has pushed back on these reports on several occasions. In an interview with The Guardian in 2004, for example, Aniston admitted that the time was right to have a child with Pitt.
“It’s time. It’s time. You think, I think you can work with a baby, I think you can work pregnant, I think you can do anything. So I’m really looking forward to slowing down, she shared.

Aniston did not provide a timetable for when she wanted to have a child Fight Club star. But it sounded like she was thinking about trying to get pregnant at the end of that year.
The actress pointed out that she would be done with friends and that Pitt submitted his latest film, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, which gives them some free time to find out things.
An insider claims Pitt and Aniston planned for a child
Unfortunately, Pitt and Aniston’s plans to have a child together have never been picked out. In 2005, the couple confirmed that they would get a divorce and Pitt created a romance with his Mr. and Mrs. Smith

Pitt would continue to share several children with Jolie. Aniston married Justin Theroux in 2015. The couple divorced two years later and had no children together.
Although Aniston has not yet joined the motherhood, an insider claims that she and Pitt were very serious about starting a family together. The source says they prepared their home for a child by adding a playroom and a room for a grandchild.
“I saw the old plans,” the source told @deuxmoi. “They were planning to have a baby. Bc they had a children’s room, grandchildren’s room and playroom. “
Aniston still wanted children after her split from Brad Pitt
Despite Aniston’s interview in 2004, people still accused her of not wanting any children of her own. In response to the reports, Aniston has claimed that she has wanted to become a mother in several interviews.
During a sit-down with Vogue 2008, friends star shot back at rumors and assured fans she would have a baby one day.
“I have said it so many times: I will have children. I just know that, ”she explained.
She added that the reports that emerged after her divorce from Pitt “really cursed” her. She also stated that some of her biggest idols who grew up were women who juggled raising families with careers.
Although Aniston has been adamant about her desire to become a mother, the actress has changed her plans in recent years.
Jennifer Aniston changes her tune about starting a family
In 2018, Aniston was again asked to have children in an interview with Elle. Despite her previous comments, Aniston acknowledged starting a family was a “scary” opportunity and that she has no regrets about her previous marriages.
“I do not feel a void. I really do not. My marriages [to Brad Pitt and
Justin Theroux], they have been very successful, in [my] personal opinion, ”shared Aniston.

Pitt has not commented on the reports about his marriage to Aniston. Pitt and Jolie divorced in the fall of 2016.
