35 times Jennifer Aniston has been totally, definitely pregnant, according to tabloid covers

Forget baseball. Making assumptions about the contents of Jennifer Aniston's womb is America's real pastime. This week, the actress took tabloid journalism to task in a blog post for The Huffington Post. She excoriated these junky magazines for their never-ending obsession with her love life and body (and the most loathsome phrase in the English language, her "baby bump"), particularly with regard to how this coverage negatively affects our perceptions of women in general:

This past month in particular has illuminated for me how much we define a woman’s value based on her marital and maternal status. 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. In this last boring news cycle about my personal life there have been mass shootings, wildfires, major decisions by the Supreme Court, an upcoming election, and any number of more newsworthy issues that “journalists” could dedicate their resources towards.

Sure, "bajillionth" is an exaggeration—but is it, though? For well over a decade now, tabloids have been obsessed with declaring the Friends star pregnant at every turn. We've rounded up dozens of she's-having-a-baby! magazine covers that, if true, would mean Jennifer Aniston's kid output would vastly outdo the Duggars.
