Jennifer Aniston has always been in celebrity news when it comes to her love life. But she’s done batting away rumors and correcting celebrity gossip. According to EOnline.com, in her Huffington Post essay, she writes, “This past month in particular has illuminated for me how much we define a woman’s value based on her marital and maternal status.” Ever since she’s been half of a celebrity couple, Aniston has dealt with tabloids and paparazzi getting in her business. She continues, “The sheer amount of resources being spent right now by press trying to simply uncover whether or not I am pregnant (for the bajillionth time… but who’s counting) points to the perpetuation of this notion that women are somehow incomplete, unsuccessful, or unhappy if they’re not married with children.” Tired of all of the criticism directed at her and other women among her, Aniston proves that celebrities are people too.

According to celebrity news, this star is definitely not expecting! What are some ways to keep the pressure to have kids at bay?

Cupid’s Advice:

People seem to think having kids is on everybody’s mind, but it’s not. Not everybody wants to have kids or is thinking about having kids any time soon. Cupid is here to help:

1. Communicate with your partner: The only person that needs to know where your head is at when it comes to kids is your partner. As long as you two are on the same page, it doesn’t matter what other people think you should be doing. Don’t put on any additional pressure on your partner.
