"Friends" star Jennifer Aniston has managed to live a successful and fulfilling life despite not being a mother. For the actress, she is complete with or without kids as they do not determine her worth.


For many, being married with kids is the ultimate way to be happy, but for "Friends" star Jennifer Aniston, none of these things top the list of what makes her feel complete.

Aniston, 51, has been married twice. The first was to Brad Pitt between 2000 and 2005; second to "The Leftovers" star Justin Theroux for two years from 2015 to 2017.

In between her two attempts at marriage, Aniston never had any child. While this has not bothered the actress much, the media has been bothered by it.

In a piece written for HuffPost back in 2016, Aniston opened up about how the press had continued to stalk her in a bid to uncover if she was pregnant or not at the time. She added that this had gone on for years.


Aniston opened up about how media culture had glamourized motherhood while often making her and several others look incomplete for not having kids. She stated: "We are complete with or without a mate, with or without a child."

Two years after writing for HuffPost, Aniston shared similar sentiments in 2018 when she described the scrutiny about her personal life as cruel and misinformed.

Aniston is dealing with her fears and doubts already.


The actress explained that even though she is a celebrity, nobody really knows what happens behind closed doors, and it is often insensitive for the media to speculate.

The 51-year-old Aniston spoke about the pressure on women to have kids and added that they are often made to feel like damaged goods if they are not doing what society expects of them.


Still speaking about the pressure to have kids, Aniston noted that she might be one of those women whose purpose is to do many great things but not procreate.

Later that year, Aniston reportedly admitted that the thought of having kids frightens her. She added that while some people are built to be mothers, she was not sure it came naturally to her.


However, now two years later, it appears these sentiments have changed, and Aniston is dealing with her fears and doubts already. Earlier this year, she opened up about what her future would look like.

The star reportedly admitted that it might include being a mom to some little ones. While it remains unclear what the future holds for Aniston, there is no doubt that if she ever becomes a mother, she is going to be an amazing one.
