The Word: Is Jennifer Aniston refusing to move to NYC?

A sign of affection, or a hint at a baby bump? Whatever Jen (in Valentino) and Justin were doing, they looked hot doing it.

The house is renovated. The chicken coop is furnished. So why don’t lovebirds Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux seem any closer to the altar?

Location, location, location. A source claims that Justin misses his New York City lifestyle and friends, and he’s pushing hard for the couple to spend part of each year here, but Jen wants to stay in Southern California for good.

“He suggested the couple could live in New York City part-time, no more than six months a year (and L.A. the rest of the time),” the source told Radar. “Justin misses the Big Apple, and his friends. His entire life was in New York, and he uprooted his entire life to move to L.A. to be with Jen.”

Well… he is an actor and screenwriter. L.A. may not have been his home base, but it’s not like she dragged him to Abu Dhabi. Still: Come to NYC, Jen! It’s great. We have, like, a bunch of Shake Shacks now.

Then again, Jen’s swanky Bel Air mansion has everything: a pool, a guesthouse, spacious grounds, and also some chickens.

Construction on Jen’s new home includes a chicken coop, according to aerial photos obtained by the Daily Mail. Chickens aren’t particularly cuddly, so it’s a little hard to see what Jen gets out of the arrangement. Fresh eggs are nice and all, but isn’t the whole point of being a movie star that you will never, ever have to be a farmer?
