Jennifer Aniston has finally found “the one” in True Blood actor Chris Gartin — even though he’s one of her best friend’s exes and she’s known his two kids for their entire lives!
Jennifer Aniston has reportedly finally found the love of her life in True Blood actor Chris Gartin and is thrilled to play mommy to his two young kids, Sydney and Flynn — but there’s only one catch: he the ex-husband of one of Jen’s best pals, Jo Gartin, a party planner to the stars.
Jen, 41, and Chris, 42, have been secretly dating since April, right before the Friends star started shooting her upcoming film Just Go With It in Maui — and friends tell OK! things have already gotten serious.
“Jen and Chris have a solid foundation as pals, so things are already natural and comfortable, and that’s helping it progress pretty quickly,” a mutual pal dished.
“Chris is the first one since John Mayer that she’s willing to put herself out there for. But unlike John, he’s not competitive with her, or out blabbing to the media all the time to further his career. Chris is mellow and relaxed in his own skin. He’s solid [and] has nothing to prove to anyone.”
Jen’s new relationship is everything a whirlwind romance should be — but sadly, she’s also breaking one of her best friends’ hearts. Chris is recently separated from ex-wife Jo and Jo is reportedly “devastated” that Jen is dating her ex and playing mom to their two kids, Sydney, 7, and Flynn, 4.
“This is a horrible situation,” Jo was reportedly heard saying at a July 7 custody hearing. “Jennifer has been my friend — our friend — for over 10 years. It’s a cardinal rule: You don’t date your friends’ ex-husbands.”
“It’s been difficult for Joanne,” Robbie Ahlfeld told Australian magazine Woman’s Day. “It just seems so bizarre to me because Jo and Jen are such good friends. I find it very strange that Jen would do that [to Jo].”
Apparently, Jen is too in love to care about Jo’s feelings right now and is even planning her future with Chris.
“Chris has that same gentle spirit that drew Jen to Brad, that sexiness that’s so effortless and natural” a friend said. “This is the happiest she has been in a long time.”
