Aniston and Bendewald's matching tattoos have a magical meaning.
In her birthday tribute, Aniston reposted a photo of her and Bendewald showing off their "11:11" tattoos. Bendewald originally posted the photo on Aniston's birthday a few weeks ago. "Can't wait to celebrate and make more magical wishes! 11:11," she wrote in her message to Aniston.
Double 11s are meaningful in numerology and astrology, which is why some people make wishes if they see a clock that's struck 11:11. A source previously told People that Aniston is "very spiritual" and the numbers are meant to be good luck. Bendewald posts a lot about spirituality on her Instagram account, and she promotes mindfulness through hosting women's circles. She has referenced 11:11 in other posts as well.
The source who spoke with People also said the number could be significant to Aniston because her birthday is Feb. 11 and her dog, Norman, died in 2011 when he was 15 years old.
Aniston didn't just get an Instagram post in her honor from Bendewald: Jennifer Aniston Just Got a Sweet Birthday Wish From This Ex.
Aniston's other tattoo is in honor of the pet she lost.
Speaking of Norman, Aniston's other known tattoo is his name in cursive on her foot. When Aniston appeared on Inside the Actor's Studio in 2011, she talked about how thinking about her own dogs helped her tap into her emotions for the 2008 movie Marley & Me, which is about a family's connection to their dog.
"My Norman just passed away about a month ago," Aniston said on the show (via People). "And I remember thinking I had never walked through having to lose a pet. So just the idea of it. And Norman was getting up there at the time, so, again, easy access."
And when host James Lipton asked Aniston's favorite word later in the show, the star answered, "Norman."
