As you've likely heard by now, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux recently called it quits after just two years of marriage.
Naturally, when word of Jen's separation went public, fans immediately began to spread the rumor that Aniston would be getting back together with Brad Pitt.
Some have even gone so far as to suggest that Pitt was the cause of Aniston and Theroux's breakup.
That doesn't appear to be the case, as the consensus amongst insiders is that Jen and Justin parted ways for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that he envisioned a life on the East Coast, far from the scrutiny of Hollywood, while she's still very much of that world.
So in all likelihood, the split had nothing to do with Brad, and things just fell apart for the myriad boring reasons that marriages usually fall apart.
And in all probability, Brad and Jen are probably not planning to reconcile - at least not yet, anyway.
But that doesn't mean Jen has no immediate use for her OG ex-husband.
According to Radar Online, Jen is hoping to have a child with Brad.
However, she seems to have no intention of welcoming him into her bed:
“Jen isn’t talking about getting back together with Brad — at least not now,” says a source close to the former couple.
“But she smartly had her eggs frozen years ago, and now she’s asked Brad to donate the sperm so they can finally have a child together!”
Yes, it seems Jen's name is on the very short list of women who could easily have sex with Brad Pitt, but are opting not to.
The actress' responses to those all-too-frequent "Jennifer Aniston is pregnant!!!" rumors have ranged from apathetic to annoyed, but those who know her best say that she entered into both marriages with the intention of starting a family:
“When they got married, Jen said she wanted to start a family, and for Justin, it was important to have kids,” says the source.
Brad famously ditched Jen for Angelina Jolie after meeting the actress on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith (which is probably still Jen's least favorite movie), but these days the former flames are both single and presumably ready to mingle.
And by "mingle," of course, we mean endure a series of costly medical procedures in hope of procreating.
We say go for it, you crazy kids!
That would be one ludicrously photogenic baby!
