Jennifer Aniston's rep reveals the truth behind her 'baby bump'

When you're Jennifer Aniston, there are some simple pleasures you can't quite enjoy. Take, for instance, the freedom of jetting away to a foreign country where nobody knows you, feasting on delicious food and then frolicking on the beach in a bikini.

The Friends star has been plagued by pregnancy rumours once again, after she was spotted on holiday in the Bahamas with husband Justin Theroux, showing off what some magazines were quick to label a baby bump.

According to InTouch, 47-year-old Jennifer's "miracle baby had saved her 10-month marriage to Justin" and they'd already "picked out names and a theme for the nursery." Which is all very nice, except that she's not actually pregnant.

The "baby bump" pictures went viral, forcing Jennifer's representative to comment. In a statement to ET, they explained: "She is not pregnant. Shame on InTouch for making up the whole story, but this is not the first time they have done so. What you see is her having just enjoyed a delicious big lunch and her feeling safe on private property."

But she'd simply enjoyed a big lunch while on holiday

Fans of the actress have commented negatively on the "body shaming" reports, and Jennifer has previously spoken out about the pressure women are put under to start a family.

She told Allure: "I don't like [the pressure] that people put on me, on women – that you've failed yourself as a female because you haven't procreated. I don't think it's fair. You may not have a child… but that doesn't mean you aren't mothering – dogs, friends' children." Jennifer added: "This continually is said about me: that I was so career-driven and focused on myself; that I don't want to be a mother, and how selfish is that."
