Jennifer Aniston on Having Kids: Men? Who Needs 'Em?TheMommyologist
Jennifer Aniston’s role in her new movie, The Switch, definitely has her thinking about the possibility of being a single mom. In the film, Jen’s character plays a woman who decides that she wants to have a child, and opts for using a sperm donor to do the deed.
Jen is fully supportive of the method of conception that her on-screen persona took, and at a recent press conference she said that, “Women are realizing it more and more knowing that they don’t have to settle with a man just to have that child… 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.”
I couldn’t agree with her more. Personally, I think that it is better to a woman to conceive a baby through artificial insemination than to settle down with a man just for the sake of getting pregnant. Of course, raising a child is easier when you have an extra set of hands around the house, but for today’s confident and capable women, there’s no reason why they can’t manage on their own just as well.
Jen also went on to say that the definition of family does not necessarily mean a child having a mom and a dad. She said that, “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.”
Doesn’t her positive attitude just have you wishing that she would have a baby today? I for one, think that she would make an absolutely amazing mother. She is so warm and genuine, and would no doubt be a wonderful parent to any child.
Jen also added that she still wants a baby sometime in the future.
One thing is for sure, when the time comes for her to have kids, I am 100% sure she can do it on her own if that’s what she chooses.
