The former Friends actress has allegedly begun filling out the required paperwork with the adoption agency that dealt with Sheryl Crow's adoption of baby Wyatt last month, according to OK! magazine.
An adoption agency source tells the publication, "The process has 100 percent started," and the New York Daily News reports friends of the star have confirmed Aniston's plans.
A friend tells the newspaper, "She is happier and more excited than she has ever been in her life."
Another pal adds Aniston had been considering adoption for a long time: "Jen has been thinking about adopting for a while. But after seeing Sheryl and her son, Wyatt, together, Jen didn't know why she was still waiting."
