After receiving countless questions about motherhood over the years, Jennifer Aniston set the record straight in a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal. She opened up about her IVF battle and revealed that Adam Sandler sends her Mother’s Day flowers every year after learning what she went through.
Aniston and Sandler starred in several movies by each other’s side, including the 2011 rom-com Just Go with It and the Murder Mystery franchise. Their bond became pretty strong over the years, and Sandler and his wife Jackie have a habit of surprising Aniston with a special present every Mother’s Day.
Friends star told WSJ that the Sanders send her flowers every Mother’s Day, after learning about her fertility struggles. Aniston faced public scrutiny over the years for not having children over the years, but she later revealed it wasn’t for the lack of trying.
“I was going through IVF, drinking Chinese teas, you name it. I was throwing everything at it. I would have given anything if someone had said to me, ‘Freeze your eggs. Do yourself a favor.’ You just don’t think it. So here I am today. The ship has sailed,” she told Allure last year.
Even though her IVF journey was unsuccessful, Aniston told Allure she has “zero regrets” about the way things turned out. The only thing she regrets is the harmful narrative that she was selfish and only cared about her career, pushed by the tabloid media over the years.
