Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have been entertaining their famous friends at their Mexican holiday home. The couple, who got engaged in August, welcomed John Krasinski, wife Emily Blunt, Jimmy Kimmel, and girlfriend Molly McNearney to Cabo San Lucas for a post-Christmas vacation and the three couples have been relaxing by the pool.
A source told Us Weekly “They spent the afternoon lounging around and having drinks at Jen and Justin’s house. They seemed to all be really good friends and comfortable around each other. Emily was lying in John’s lap, and Jen had her arms around Justin. They were there all afternoon until sunset, laughing and having great conversation.”
John, Emily, Jimmy and Molly all flew out for the getaway together from Los Angeles and eyewitnesses at LAX said they were in high spirits at the airport. An onlooker said “The whole group walked out of the Admirals Club lounge and over to the terminal. John’s arm was around Emily, and they were smiling – very couple-y and cute. [They're] clearly very happy. The group looked very excited to be vacationing together.”
Jennifer Aniston gave her first post-engagement interview to close pal Chelsea Handler on Handler’s talk show this week and couldn’t stop herself from getting teary as Chelsea gushed about what a great couple she and fiance Justin Theroux make.
The Chelsea Lately host said “He’s the greatest guy ever. You guys make the greatest couple ever.” Jennifer admitted she was overwhelmed, saying “I just got verklempt [Yiddish for overcome with emotion].”
Justin asked Jennifer to marry him on a romantic dinner date to celebrate his birthday at a New York City restaurant in August. The surprise proposal, which took place just over a year after they started dating, occurred while the couple were dining at Greenwich Village restaurant Blue Hill.
Announcing the happy event, Justin’s publicist said “Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage.”
After the proposal, an “overwhelmed” Jennifer – who was previously married to Brad Pitt – called her close friends and family to share the good news. A source said “Just after Jen got engaged, she called all her friends and told them about it. She was so happy and said she loves the ring. I think she was overwhelmed and overjoyed by the size and beauty of it!”
