Jennifer Aniston is reportedly spending Thanksgiving with boyfriend John Mayerâ€™s family in Boston, which suggested that their relationship is still going strong after a recent split.
The couple dated for around six months from February to August this year before splitting after John realised it wasnâ€™t working and he didnâ€™t want to â€œwaste somebodyâ€™s time if somethingâ€™s not rightâ€œ. However, they reconciled in October, with John determined to make a go of things this time.
A source, which was close to the couple, claimed Jennifer Aniston has already introduced the singer to her dad John and previously estranged mum Nancy, and now John is returning the gesture: â€œHe knows his mom worries about things, particularly the stuff she reads about it being a sham relationship. He wants to take Jen home to show his mom how much theyâ€™re in love.â€
The source added that the trip also shows a new side to the Friends star: â€œIn the past Jen would have resisted. She got really close to [ex-husband] Brad [Pitt]â€™s family and it made it worse when they split. But sheâ€™s decided she canâ€™t keep holding back. Sheâ€™s giving this thing with John her all.â€
Another report suggested that John Mayer apparently found favor with Jennifer Aniston’s mum after presenting her with cake when they met. A friend revealed: “Jen and John visited her and stopped on the way to pick up a coconut cream and an apple pie.”
The on-off couple recently reunited after splitting in August, with Mayer hinting that a marriage proposal could be on the cards.
