Hollywood golden couple JENNIFER ANISTON and BRAD PITT are "ecstatic" - Aniston is pregnant with the couple's first child.
TV bosses at Jennifer's hit show FRIENDS will write the pregnancy into the storyline, just as they did for co-star LISA KUDROW when she fell pregnant with son JULIAN.
WARNER BROS chiefs aren't keen to write gorgeous 37-year-old Brad into the storylines as the father due to his $13million (£10million)-a-movie fee - they've got their sights set on Chandler's transvestite father, played by KATHLEEN TURNER, as the daddy.
A source on the Friends set says, "Jennifer said she wants to carry on working right up to the birth. She doesn't mind what sex the baby is, but a blue-eyed boy for Brad would be just the cutest thing. " (AW/WNTST/PDD)
