It was the best gift ever on Justin Theroux's 41st birthday on Friday (10 August). He proposed to Jennifer Aniston and she said yes! The newly engaged couple confirmed the news, with Justin's rep revealing in a statement, "Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage."
It's definitely an extraordinary moment for Jennifer, 43. The actress, who was earlier married to Brad Pitt and forever in the role of the one who lost out as Brad hooked up with Angelina Jolie after their divorce, now has her moment. It's probably just a coincidence that Jen's happy news comes at the same time that Brad and Ange are supposedly set to tie the knot, surrounded by their six kids. And we're totally not picturing Jen doing a victory dance while chanting 'Take that, Brad and Angelina!'
But back to the couple in focus. Jen and Justin have been dating for over an year now, after meeting on the set of the movie Wanderlust. While the film may have flopped, their bond just got stronger. They bought a 8,500-square-foot, Dhs77million mansion in LA’s posh Bel Air neighbourhood. Also, Justin was with Jen everywhere, from her Hand And Footprint Ceremony at Grauman's Chinese Theatre to cosy birthday bashes at Chateau Marmont.

The Friends star was obviously in love and told InStyle in March this year that she was at a "joyful and peaceful" place and knew what she was looking for when it comes to love.
There was a ripple in the happy couple picture when it was alleged in US tabloids a few days ago that Jennifer and Justin had split. But her reps were quick to dismiss the rumours, saying, "It's once again just another fabrication to sell magazines and has no relationship to reality."
Picking apart the story in Star magazine, Us Weekly reported that the "mystery blonde" Justin was spotted dining with recently was old friend Amy Sedaris. Another insider close to the couple revealed that Justin, a popular screenwriter in his own right, recently dined out with Jen's closest friends Laura Dern and Courteney Cox in NYC, while the actress was filming in North Carolina.
Now that's togetherness. And here's to Jen and Justin as they start on a new phase of their lives! We can't wait to check out her engagement ring and see how it compares to the sparkler that Brad gave her.
