Congratulations are in order for Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney!
Jennifer Lawrence, 31, and husband Cooke Maroney, 37, are expecting a baby together, the actress’ rep confirmed to PEOPLE! This will be the couple’s first child together.
Mere hours after the highly anticipated trailer for the star-studded Netflix film Don’t Look Up—the actress’s first film since 2019—dropped, reports circulated that the Mother! star is, well, becoming a mother.
Baby rumors first started surfacing before the couple’s wedding, when a source told Entertainment Tonight in June 2019 that Lawrence and Maroney were interested in having kids. “They both want children and have been discussing starting a family,” the source said. “Their families truly believe they are meant to be; his family loves her family and vice versa, so their parents are excited. Their parents get along so well and are all looking forward to big family get-togethers.”
In exclusive pictures obtained by DailyMail.com, the actress, 31, showed off her growing bump during a stroll through New York City on Wednesday.
Lawrence was pictured walking through New York wearing a pair of floral dungarees and a white T-shirt. She slung a leather bag over her shoulder and walked through the streets in her jelly sandals along with a friend.
Lawrence and art dealer Cooke Maroney started dating in June 2018 and married in October 2019 at a dazzling 150-guest event in Rhode Island.
“I definitely wasn’t at a place [initially] where I was like, ‘I’m ready to get married,’” Lawrence told the Naked with Catt Sadler podcast in June 2019. “I just met Cooke and I wanted to marry him. We wanted to marry each other. We wanted to commit fully. He’s my best friend, so I want to legally bind him to me forever. And fortunately the paperwork exists for such a thing. It’s the greatest. You find your favorite person in the planet and you’re like, you can’t leave. So I wanted to take that offer.”
Their 150 wedding guests included Kris Jenner and her boyfriend Corey Gamble, Amy Schumer, Emma Stone, and Ashley Olsen.
The couple has been careful to keep the relationship private from the beginning of the courtship.
Lawrence was last seen in the 2019 film ‘Dark Phoenix’, a prequel spin-off in the ‘X-Men’ film franchise in which she reprised her role of the mutant Raven Darkholme aka Mystique.
