Jennifer Lawrence, star of “The Hunger Games”, is expecting her first child with her husband, Cooke Maroney.
It seems to be raining babies this week. This news from the actress is coming a day after John Mulaney confirmed Olivia Munn’s pregnancy on Late Night with Seth Meyers. And also, a couple of days after Kylie Jenner confirmed that she is expecting her second child with Travis Scott.
The news of the 31-year-old actress and Maroney going to be parents was officially confirmed by the actress’ representative to People on Wednesday.
In 2015, Lawrence had an interview with Diane Swayer, where she talked about marriage. She said: “I don’t know if I ever will get married, and I’m OK with that. I don’t feel that I need anything to complete me. I love meeting people, men, women, whatever; I love people coming into your life and bringing something.”
Continuing, she then went on to say: “I don’t really plan on getting married. [But] I definitely want to be a mother.”
The actress and her art dealer husband began dating in 2018 and got engaged in February 2019. In June 2019, while speaking on the show “Naked with Catt Sadler”, Lawrence called Maroney “the greatest human being” she’s ever met.
When asked why she chose to marry Maroney, Jennifer Lawrence continued, “I don’t know, I started with the basics: ‘How do I feel? Is he nice? Is he kind?’ ”
“It’s just — this is the one, I know that sounds really stupid, but he’s just, he’s — you know. He’s the greatest person I’ve ever met, so I feel very [honoured] to become a Maroney,” she squealed.
In October 2019, a few months after their engagement, they got married at a potentially haunted estate in Newport, RI. They held a wedding reception for 150 guests. Guests at their marriage ceremony included celebrity friends like Bradley Cooper, Adele, Kris Jenner, Nicole Richie, and Cameron Diaz.
Photos of the Oscar-winning actress walking around with a baby bump has gone viral, with fans excited about her pregnancy.
