The wedding bells are ringing soon for lovebirds Jennifer Anniston,43, and Justin Theroux,41.
Last Friday, we were all sitting on the edge of our seats in anticipation of Brangelina’s wedding after the worldwide rumours surrounding the engaged couple. The rumours however, were proven untrue, at least until today. On the other hand, Jennifer Anniston surprised us all by saying ‘yes’ to Justin Theroux’s proposal right on his birthday last Saturday.
The pair, who has been going out for over a year, started dating in May 2011. Both Justin and Jennifer’s reps have confirmed the engagement news, with his rep saying that they are walking down the isle soon.
“Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage,” Justin’s rep said.
It was an on-set romance for the pair who acted in romantic comedy ‘Wanderlust’. Since then, the double Js have reportedly always been spotted together. Recently, they went on a beach vacation in Hawaii just days before Justin popped the question on August 10.
The engagement signifies that Jennifer, 43, is indeed ready to believe again in marriage after separating from Brad Pitt in 2005. She has not been too lucky in the love department afterwards; her relationships with actor Vince Vaughn, British model Paul Sculfor, and singer John Mayer fell apart and caused her to not believe in a thing called ‘perfect life’ anymore.
‘A perfect life? I think that’s sort of cliché, isn’t it? Like, if you want to be happy, you should have the house, the husband, the kid… Kids are messy!’
Jen was even reported to have turned down Justin’s initial proposal in June over their Paris and Rome trip. To the never-give-up Justin, we say: ‘kudos!’.
We do hope this will be everlasting for our utmost favourite girl next door Jennifer Anniston. Congratulations, Jennifer and Justin!
