According to British tabloid The Daily Mirror, it's only a matter of time before Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux tie the knot.
The 43-year-old actress allegedly told a friend that Theroux was "The One" at an exclusive pre-Oscar party at Drai's in Hollywood on Friday, and jokingly revealed that she had given the actor an ultimatum.
"If he's not got down on one knee [sic], or we're not married by the end of the year, it's over!" Aniston reportedly said.
The actress also reportedly told her friend that things were "getting serious" with Theroux -- especially because their new "baby," a pitbull-boxer puppy named Sophie. "We have new responsibilities. She’s like a test run for kids, I guess," Aniston allegedly said.
In October 2011, she told HELLO! magazine that she had absolutely no plans to marry in the near future: "I am not planning to get married any time soon. This ring that I'm wearing is not an engagement ring. I've been married once and I don't know if I'll get married again, but I can tell you that as of this very moment, as of today, I have no plans to get married."
That hasn't stopped the rumors of couple's impending nuptials, though. A November 2011 issue of OK! magazine reported that Aniston and Theroux were were planning to elope in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico over the holidays (they didn't), and just a few months before that, OK! proclaimed that the couple was competing with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie for the year's best nuptials. Neither couple is married.
