When it comes to celebrity gossip, this week was a doozy. Adoptions, baby names, baby bumps, walkoffs – we heard ’em all!
Of course, we have to take many of them with a giant brick of salt. A couple of the stories were the same hopeful speculation we’ve heard for months, and others were officially denied almost as soon as they broke.
But some had the ring of truth – like the sparkly bauble on Jennifer Aniston‘s finger that sure looks a lot like it came with a proposal. She and boyfriend Justin Theroux have also been seen around town looking awfully giggly and cuddly.
Speculation is also heating up that she’s finally pregnant. She’s looking just a little less than stick-thin in recent photos, and though she was spotted drinking wine early last month, reports say she’s been laying off alcohol since then. Jen continues to deny it, but only time – and her tummy – will tell for sure.
The double engaged-and-pregnant rumor gives her a slight edge over the rest, so we’re putting her at the top of this week’s rumor mill list.
