She wasn’t invited to Jennifer Aniston’s wedding to first husband, Brad Pitt, but Nancy Dow WILL be on the guest list to see her exchange nuptials with Justin Theroux, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
The estranged mother of the former Friends star was told by Jennifer’s half-brother John Melick that this time around she will be able to see her daughter’s big day, and it’s all thanks to her new fiance.
Justin believes strongly in family values and has managed to convince Jennifer that, despite their differences in the past, Nancy deserves a wedding invitation.
“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 insider revealed.
“She was told of the invitation by her son, John, which she was obviously delighted with.
“Sadly, the initial fallout between Nancy and Jennifer in 1999 meant that she wasn’t on the guest list for the 2000 wedding to Brad Pitt — something that always haunted her.
“But the pair has healed their differences and, with the help of Justin, Nancy will get an invite this time around.
“Justin comes from a tight-knit family, who he is very close to. He preaches family values to Jennifer and he said to her he’d love a private, low-key ceremony with all their family members present.
“She agreed, said she’d forgiven her mom for her past discrepancies and that Nancy should be a guest at her second wedding,” the insider divulged.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Jennifer and Justin became engaged last Friday on his 41st birthday.
His rep confirmed: “Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage.”
The couple began dating in early 2011 and recently embarked on a romantic European vacation stopping in Capri where they were pictured sunning themselves on the deck of the Liberty of Lymington boat.
Jennifer fell out with Nancy in 1999 over the tell-all book From Mother and Daughter to Friends: A Memoir.
But the pair have since reconciled and Jennifer was seen rushing to her mother’s Los Angeles hospital bedside in September, 2011, when Nancy suffered a stroke.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Nancy actually learned of her daughter’s engagement the same time the rest of the world did!
“Nancy is absolutely delighted Jennifer is going to marry Justin,” a family insider revealed. “The first she learned of the engagement though was last night after an official announcement had been made to the press.”
