No, the word 'their' is a pronoun.

The pronoun 'their' is a possessive adjective, a word that takes the place of a noun and is placed before a noun to describe a noun as belonging to someone or something.

The possessive adjectives are: my, your, his, her, their, its.

The possessive adjective 'their' takes the place of a plural noun or two or more nouns for people or things.

example: Jack and Jill came for a visit with their baby.
