Jennifer Aniston is going to be an aunt! Star can reveal that the girlfriend of the actress’ tattooed half-brother, AJ, is heavily pregnant with her first child.
On July 3, AJ’s baby mama, Adriane Hallek, shared the exciting news via Facebook. Sporting pink highlights, the model and horror makeup artist confirmed the sex of the unborn child with a photo of her growing bump. “Sooooo, I’m having a son,” she captioned the pic.
The unconventional couple announced they had married in late January, via another online post by Adriane, which has since been deleted. On her social media page, Adriane describes herself as ‘married’ to AJ, while his only public post is a raunchy shot of them both topless and kissing with the caption, “I love you mother******.”
This news will probably come with mixed reviews from AJ’s big sis, who has been desperately trying for a baby since she and Justin Theroux got engaged two years ago. “It’s a bittersweet situation for her, because as everybody knows, she’s been longing for a baby of her own for years now,” an insider tells Star.
“Of course, she’ll be happy for AJ, even though they’re not particularly close, but it will likely trigger those hurt feelings, too, that she’s not yet been lucky enough to be a mom herself,” the source adds.
Last month, Adriane denied ever meeting Jen, and was coy about AJ, who’s the son of Jen’s famous soap star dad, John Aniston, and his second wife, Sherry Rooney. “He’s a great guy, but I don’t want to talk about him,” she told a reporter. “He likes his privacy.”
AJ lives a nomadic lifestyle, traveling around in a battered black van, in which he keeps a mattress to sleep on. When asked what it’s like to get grilled about his famous sister, he previously said, “It’s been happening since middle school. It’s ben a pain in my ass for years.”
