Jennifer Lawrence & Cooke Maroney are expecting their first child

Jennifer Lawrence Is Engaged to Boyfriend Cooke Maroney

There’s been a lot of baby talk this week, what with Cardi B revealing she gave birth to a boy, Alicia Vikander revealing that she gave birth to a Fassbaby at some point in the past year, Kylie Jenner confirming her pregnancy too, plus the mess with John Mulaney and his girlfriend. At some point, I did think to myself “I wonder if that’s why we haven’t heard from Jennifer Lawrence in a while, maybe she’s secretly pregnant too.” Yep.

Jennifer Lawrence is pregnant! The 31-year-old Oscar winner is expecting her first child with her husband, art gallery director Cooke Maroney, PEOPLE can exclusively confirm.

The actress’ rep confirmed the happy baby news to PEOPLE on Wednesday.

Lawrence and Maroney were first linked in June 2018 and the star and the art dealer, 37, were engaged the following February. The couple tied the knot on Oct. 19, 2019, in Rhode Island.

A Maroney Baby is coming! I feel like she only would have confirmed this if she was pretty far along and/or she was trying to get ahead of an inevitable “bump reveal” via paparazzi photos. She’s got some promotion to do in a few months for Don’t Look Up, which comes out in December. She already wrapped on another film, although she’s got two big projects yet to film, Mob Girl and the Elizabeth Holmes/Bad Blood movie. I guess those films will be delayed. Which is fine, sometimes stuff gets delayed. Anyway, congrats to J-Law and Cooke.

Oh, Netflix released their new trailer for Don’t Look Up! Don’t even say a word about J-Law’s wig in this movie. Just… don’t. I cannot.

    I’m very happy for them!

  3. Caro says:

    The dailymail has the paparazzi pics.

    • D says:

      I can’t believe they pictures right up in her face as she’s eating. As most people do in New York since Covid she’s eating outside on the sidewalk but it’s like the camera is right in her personal space. It’s unbelievable.

      • differen screen name. says:

        I really don’t like the Daily Mail. The way they talk about women and women’s bodies, and the clothes they wear grosses me out. “bump on display” “bumping” “flaunting her bump” etc. And those photos feel really intrusive. She’s just trying to eat and they’re taken from right next to the table. Bless her heart.

  4. Becks1 says:

    Aw, that’s exciting news. I’m happy for them.

    “John Mulaney and his girlfriend”—dying.

  6. Lucy2 says:

    Congrats to them!
    I like Jennifer as an actor, but just watching the trailer for that movie stressed me out. That might be one I have to skip.

  7. Jessica says:

    How do you pronounce his name? Cook? Coke? Cookie?

    Congrats to them, they seem sort of low key

    • iconoclast59 says:

      I’m pretty sure it’s pronounced “Cook,” but I always think of it as “Cookie,” because “Cookie Maroney” amuses me to no end. I’m a simple girl at heart. 😊

  8. Loretta says:

    I’m so happy for them. Congrats!

  9. MellyMel says:

    Lainey hinted at this back in July so I’m not surprised. Congrats to them!!

  10. Normades says:

    Happy for them. She is weathering her post it-girl stage well: Concentrating on doing the work and prioritizing her private life.

  11. Jezz says:

    There were pics of her in a tight yellow dress back in June. Her tummy was big (for a movie star) so this explains it.

  12. Case says:

    Good for them! She seems like she’s figured out the game/exposure thing as she’s gotten older and is enjoying her private life.

    • Lena says:

      I agree. She was thisclose to being overexposed then she dialed it way down. I wish others knew when to take time to themselves as well. It’s better for their acting especially when they get into it so young.

  13. Teebee says:

    I love Adam McKay! And look at that cast!

    And congrats to the two of them!

  14. Moxylady says:

    Omg wow! I always think she’s so so young but she’s as old as I was when I had my first. Children are so fun. Congrats to them both.

  15. AKA says:

    I expected her to be pregnant after the Emma Stone delivery news. Not that she is necessarily following Emma Stone, but this is pretty much what every Hollywood IT girl with a “good girl” image is doing – get married in their late 20s or early 30s and pop a baby. Congratulations to her though, babies are always wonderful news!

    • ama1977 says:

      In fairness, I think that’s a path that lots of people in general take. It’s certainly not the only valid path, but I think it is fairly common for both women and men to marry in their late 20’s-early 30’s and have a baby within a few years. I’m sure she’s not timing her life events around a work colleague/peer’s choices. Maybe I’m overly sensitive because this exactly describes my life: married at 28, first baby at 30.

      Anyway, congratulations to them and best wishes for a healthy little one and mom!

  16. Sof says:

    That movie trailer… are we supposed to understand what is happening?

    Also, congrats to her!

  17. SUNNYVILE says:

    Ugh these baby news are getting to me😭I’m sitting here eating my leftover lunch in my too tight stained pajamas feeling gloomy about being 31yr old with no real relationship experience😞I worry if I’m going to end up alone or pick the wrong guy in a hurry to have kids later in my life like my aunt!!
    Congrats to these ladies. I’m glad they’re prioritising their personal life which I guess was helped by the pause because of the pandemic

    • Arpeggi says:

      Could be worst… You could be 36 and thinking the same while you’re staying on your mom’s couch cuz you had unexpected renovations at your place that are taking forever to resolve. And now, you’re also unsure that you can afford trying to have a child on your own because of the cost of those damn renos 😭
      So big hugs to you, it’s all gonna be ok, I’m sure. And congrats to them, it’s awesome to have a kid when/if you decide to want one

      • Sally says:

        33 and it’s not just renovations that keep me at my mum’s place, work contract runs out in a month too and yay, I feel so accomplished and happy about my life choices rn! Not.

    • Chocolate cake says:

      I’m in the exact same position as you. 😥

    • Amanda says:

      I’m 34, and in a similar place. I don’t really want children though, so at least that isn’t an issue for me.

  18. Well Wisher says:

    Congratulations are in order.

  19. Liz version 700 says:

    Awww that’s great! Good Luck to them

  20. jferber says:

    Lena, she was totally overexposed, in my opinion. Anne Hathaway was more hidden. I thought Lawrence was quitting Hollywood when she married? Am I wrong?

  21. BigLifeSmallCity says:

    I’m just wondering why nobody here refers to Olivia Munn by her name, and just as ‘John Mulaney’s girlfriend’? I had no idea who Mulaney was until last week – I’ve known who Olivia Munn was for years. So I’m just wondering where the disconnect is.
