Jennifer Aniston’s boyfriend Justin Theroux popped the question to his stunning girlfriend recently and RadarOnline.com has all the details about their secret engagement including the shocking fact that her new fiance reportedly still struggles with her fame.
Jen is arguably one of the most famous women in the world; with everyone interested in her every move, latest haircut and romance with Justin, and while Justin loves her and wants to marry her, he knows that by marrying her he’s signing up for a very public relationship.
“He struggles with her level of fame, but he’s not going to let it come in between them,” a source told People magazine.
Their engagement weekend began when Justin visited Jennifer on the set of her latest movie We Are The Millers in Wilmington, North Carolina on August 9, and shortly after she finished filming for the day the happy couple jetted off on a private plane to New York City.
Following Justin’s Friday, August 10, 41st birthday, his rep confirmed his client “had an amazing birthday,” was given the “extraordinary gift” of Jen accepting his marriage proposal and that the pair celebrated that evening.
The newly engaged couple dined at Manhattan hot spot Blue Hill restaurant where a source told RadarOnline.com “they looked like they were very much in love.”
She and Justin have been wearing matching chunky gold bands on their wedding ring fingers for months, but he proposed with a much more dramatic ring.
Justin gave Jen an eight-carat emerald-cut diamond and the beautiful sparkler is “a rectangle with tapered diamond baguettes on the sides,” Life & Style reported.
Jen’s first husband, Brad Pitt, proposed to her with a brilliant round diamond surrounded by spiraling smaller diamonds that he co-designed with jeweler Silvia Damiani and that rock was valued at around $500,000!
After Justin’s proposal, Jen immediately told her closest friends and family members and RadarOnline.com exclusively revealed that she will be inviting her estranged mother Nancy Dow to the wedding.
“Nancy and Jennifer have had their ups and downs, but they’re going to let bygones be bygones and she will be invited to her daughter’s wedding ceremony,” a family source said.
When Jen married Brad she legally changed her last name to Pitt, so she may be known as Mrs. Theroux after her second wedding!
