Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence is expecting her first child with art dealer husband

Written by on 09/09/2021

Oscar winning actor Jennifer Lawrence is expecting her first child, a representative for the star said.

Lawrence, 31, is pregnant and expecting the baby with New York City art dealer husband Cooke Maroney.

The pair first met in 2018 and were engaged in February 2019.

They got married in October that year during a ceremony at a mansion in Newport, Rhode Island, with celebrity guests including Emma Stone, Kris Jenner and Amy Schumer attending.

Lawrence, who is known for the Hunger Games films and won the best actress Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook, previously described Mr Maroney as “the greatest human being I’ve ever met”.

Speaking in 2019, she was asked why she married him and said: “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 the greatest person I’ve ever met, so I feel very honoured to become a Maroney.”
