Jennifer Aniston is reportedly having fertility treatment.

The actress has been engaged to Justin Theroux for almost a year and has recently been seen sporting a rounder looking stomach.

New reports claim the 44-year-old star has started In vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatment.

“She definitely seemed to have gained some weight,” an eyewitness from the set of Jennifer’s latest movie Squirrels to the Nuts, which is filming in New York City, told In Touch magazine.

“According to new reports, Jen has begun IVF treatments, and if all goes as planned, she will be pregnant by her 45th birthday on February 11. She held her script right in front of her stomach.”

Insiders claim Jennifer has started to show side effects from the IVF treatment.

The source added that the Friends actress is aware of her window of opportunity if she wants to have a baby naturally.

“She wasn’t as chipper as she has been,” a witness said about her on-set mood.

“She knows the clock is ticking – she’s well aware of it. She’s also done her homework. She’s explored all methods for having a baby and knows what her options are with IVF. She’s educated herself.”

Apparently Jennifer is handling the stress of conceiving well. The source added that Justin is also growing increasingly broody as time goes on.

“There is no desperation. If it’s meant to be, it’s mean to be,” the insider finished.

“Justin didn’t always want kids, but his life with Jen changed his perspective on being a dad.”

Jennifer also recently revealed she thinks she and fiancé Justin Theroux would make great parents.

The Friends star told Us Glamour magazine that she thought they had all of the qualities needed to bring up children well.

She said: "[Justin] has extremely amazing paternal instincts. Because [growing up] he had to sort of become the parent. I think when you have to become the parent when you're a younger person, you learn those instincts."
