Jennifer Aniston representatives have spoken out following claims the actress revealed bombshell baby news on the highly anticipated Friends Reunion show

Jennifer Aniston reps have spoken out in response to claims the actress let slip some major baby news on the Friends reunion show which was filmed last week.

Jennifer, 52, who is currently filming the second series of The Morning Show, took time out from her busy schedule to meet up with her old Friends co-stars to film the reunion special of the US sitcom in LA.

Having shot to fame playing Rachel Green in the hit US sitcom, Jen joined Courteney Cox (Monica), Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe), David Schwimmer, (Ross), Matt Le Blanc (Joey) and Matthew Perry (Chandler) to film a special reunion show, which is yet to be aired on HBO Max, but wrapped filming just days ago.

And while many fans just cannot wait to see the six stars reunited on screen, reports started swirling that Jennifer had told her co-stars about her excitement over her new baby arrival during filming and that she is in the process of adopting a baby, but her representatives told TMZ that the adoption claims are 'false and never happened'.

It was claimed the twice-divorced actress has decided to adopt a baby girl from Mexican orphanage, Casa Hogar Sion and said Jen had been a long-time supporter of helping out the orphanage, and her friends are now saying the adoption process is set to be finalised by June.

An insider told Closer, "Jen felt the reunion was the perfect time to make her baby announcement to the whole gang. While the girls already knew – as they see each other regularly – she thought it would be special to tell the boys when they were all together, as she rarely sees them these days due to their busy lives and work commitments."

But these claims are untrue and follow the previous adoption rumours which have previously circulated involving the Hollywood star. Reports Jen was looking into adoption swirled back in 2011 before she married her second husband Justin Theroux. However, Jen had always remained tight-lipped on her baby plans and denied such reports but she hinted that she sees children in her future following 'reunion' with Brad Pitt.

The insider claimed, “Spending almost every waking hour together for a decade, they lived through every detail of each other’s lives and supported each other through all their hard times including Courteney’s fertility struggles and Jen’s painful divorce from Brad Pitt.

“Knowing how much they’ve always wanted this for Jen knowing her history, made it even more poignant for her to tell them her news so they could share and celebrate the milestone chapter in her life."

“They were all overjoyed when she told them – giving her parenting advice, which she said she’d happily take on once she was settled in," the source added.

But these claims have been rubbished by her reps who stressed they are 'false and never happened'. But despite the baby news confusion - it hasn't stopped fans from getting excited about the reunion.

Meanwhile, fans cannot contain their excitement for the reunion show as the official Friends Instagram account teased the show.

And Friends fans started asking Are Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer dating? after the pair admitted they were crushing on each other off-screen during filming in the 90s.

But his reps have denied claims that the pair are dating.
