Jennifer Lawrence And Cooke Maroney Welcome Their First Child Together

J-Law is a mom! In September 2021, Page Six confirmed the news of Jennifer Lawrence's first pregnancy, and, a couple months later, "The Hunger Games" actress talked about it with Vanity Fair.

"Every instinct in my body wants to protect their privacy for the rest of their lives, as much as I can," she said. "I don't want anyone to feel welcome into their existence. And I feel like that just starts with not including them in this part of my work."

The news of her journey into parenthood comes a little over two years after she tied the knot with Cooke Maroney. She was first romantically linked with the art dealer in the summer of 2018, and their wedding took place on Oct. 19, 2019, in Newport, Rhode Island, per People.

Last year, a source told People, "Jen wanted a family for a long time and found an ideal mate whom she loves, respects, and enjoys being around. She loves married life, and they have a solid foundation for a baby. She is very happy and looking forward to being a mom."

Now, Lawrence and Maroney have welcomed their child into the world.

This is the first child for both Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney

On Feb. 23, 2022, TMZ reported that Jennifer Lawrence and husband Cooke Maroney welcomed their first child. While the official birthdate and the gender have not yet been revealed, public records show that the little bundle of joy was born in Los Angeles County.

When it comes to handling motherhood and her career in the entertainment industry, a source told People that Lawrence, who is "ambitious and craves her work," will keep acting.

"Like other actors, she will balance her career and her life as a wife and mom," they said. "She will do it well. Jen is grounded and ready to be a parent, because she loves family life."

In the past few years, Lawrence has been in films like "X-Men: Dark Phoenix," "Red Sparrow," "Mother!," and "Don't Look Up," per IMDb. She also has two projects currently in production: "Red, White and Water," about a soldier struggling with life back at home, and "Bad Blood," in which the star will play disgraced tech entrepreneur Elizabeth Holmes.
