The couple both have good parenting skills

It sounds like Jennifer Aniston thinks Justin Theroux would make a great dad.

The Friends star says fiancé Justin, 41, has always had very fatherly characteristics.

I know Justin, for instance, has extremely amazing paternal instincts,’ says Jen, 44.

Because [growing up] he had to sort of become the parent. I think when you have to become the parent when you’re a younger person, you learn those instincts.’

Jen, who got engaged to Justin last year, is full of praise for her man, calling him ‘beautiful, loving [and] open’.

In an upfront interview with We’re The Millers co-star Jason Sudeikis for Glamour US, Jason suggests that Jen also has good parenting skills.

The comedian says Jen was ‘very maternal’ towards fellow cast member Emma Roberts, 22, on the set.
