Why are we hopping up and down on one foot at this news? We don’t really know, but it’s our way of expressing joy. Our girl Jennifer Aniston is engaged! You should be hopping too. Her boyfriend, now fiance, Justin Theroux had a double celebration on Friday, when he celebrated his 41st birthday, and asked Jen to marry him! His spokesperson spilled the beans to People, saying, “Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage.” Spokesperson … or poet? We’ve been hoping that these two would go the distance and every passing milestone in their relationship made us feel like it was going to happen. Like when they moved in together. Or when Jen and Justin sent out that joint Christmas card. Come on — she got her man to breakdance on the Ellen show in front of the whole world! If that didn’t indicate just how serious they were about each other, we don’t know what would. So, yes. We are thrilled she’s getting married and are going to keep our ears in flap mode for any wedding stuff including — and this is the big one — what she’s going to wear. And during this happy moment, can we please request that the world switches off snark mode? Let’s not go into the fact that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie may be getting hitched and just leave this to two people doing their thing without any other ulterior motive other than wanting to get married to each other. Okay? Cool.
