Jennifer Lawrence and Husband Cooke Maroney Are Preparing for Their First Child
The news that Jennifer Lawrence is pregnant has led many to wonder who her husband is, and how long the two of them have been married.
In the middle of the 2010s, Jennifer Lawrence was the biggest actress in the world. Although she's intentionally receded from that position in more recent years, it still caused a pretty major stir when she recently revealed that she was pregnant with her first child. The news was broken by People, and she was recently spotted with a baby bump in New York City. Now, many want to know more about Cooke Maroney, her husband of two years.
Who is Jennifer Lawrence's husband?
Cooke Maroney is an art gallerist who is native to New York City, and the two were first spotted together in 2018. The couple was married in October of 2019 in Rhode Island, and have kept their relationship relatively private since their nuptials. Cooke's parents apparently own a farm, and after attempting to raise him in the city, decided to move to Vermont for more wide-open spaces.
Cooke also has a sister, and he first met Jennifer through Laura Simpson, one of her closest friends. “They met through Jen’s friend Laura," a source told Page Six at the time. "The relationship has been going on a few weeks. But they have been very private and careful not to be seen together."
Much like Jennifer, he's not really on social media, which only enhances the privacy around the couple.
On Catt Sadler's podcast NAKED With Catt Sadler, Jennifer discussed planning their wedding, and how she know that Cooke was the one for her.
“I definitely wasn’t at a place where I was like, ‘I’m ready to get married,’” she said. “I just met Cooke and I wanted to marry him. We wanted to marry each other."
"We wanted to commit fully," she continued. "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.”
Jennifer recently announced that she's pregnant.
Now that she and Cooke have been married for two years, the couple have announced that Jennifer is pregnant with her first child. The news comes as she prepares to promote Don't Look Up, her first movie since 2019 and her first lead role since 2018. At the height of her fame, Jennifer was known for being remarkably frank about her own life, and now that she's pregnant, she may be brutally honest about that experience in interviews.
When is Jennifer's due date?
Although Cooke and Jennifer announced the pregnancy, they have not offered any clarity around when the baby is due. Based on the photos of her baby bump, some have speculated that she's in her second trimester, and may give birth in early 2022. Regardless of when the baby is born, though, the reaction online suggests that people are very happy for the soon-to-be parents. She's already played a mom on screen, but now, Jennifer has got to prepare for what it will mean in her actual life.
