Los Angeles - Jennifer Aniston has become an aunt for the third time.

The Cake star's half-brother, Alex 'AJ' Aniston, and girlfriend Adriane Hallek reportedly welcomed a baby boy, Ryat Aniston, into the world last week in Los Angeles, according to Australia's Women's Day magazine.

It is not yet known if Jennifer, who has been promoting her new movie, Cake, around the world recently, has met the tot yet, but AJ previously admitted he found it difficult being related to her.

Check out a trailer of Jen's latest film:

When asked about his relationship with the former Friends star last year, the 25-year-old said: "It's been a pain in my a** for years. No comment."

Jennifer and AJ share the same father, Days of Our Lives star John Aniston, and she also has an older maternal half-brother, John Melick, who has two children with wife Shannon Melick.

The actress recently admitted she feels pressure to start a family of her own with fiancé Justin Theroux.

She said: "I don't like the pressure that people put on me, on women - that you've failed yourself as a female because you haven't procreated. I don't think it's fair.

"You may not have a child come out of your vagina, but that doesn't mean you aren't mothering - dogs, friends, friends' children.

"This continually is said about me: that I was so career-driven and focused on myself; that I don't want to be a mother, and how selfish that is."
