Former FRIENDS star Jennifer Aniston has laughed off reports she is pregnant with Vince Vaughn's baby - despite declaring she wants to have children next year (06).

Since splitting with ex-husband Brad Pitt in January (05), Aniston has been dating her The Break Up co-star Vaughn since August (05).

Aniston says, "You know what? If all these (pregnancy rumours were true), I should have had 10 babies by now, married five times. I swear when it happens, you'll hear it."

In an interview with America's In Style magazine, Aniston admits it took nearly a year of "hard work and soul-searching" before she was ready to date again.

She explains, "You just wake up one day and you start to feel like, yeah, I think I'm open to that now. It's not mapped out. It just sort of happened.

"I hope to be on the road to having a family in the next year. Ideally, I'd like to have a couple (of children), but who knows? That's part of the unknown that I like."
