American actress Jennifer Lawrence has been married to her spouse, Cooke Maroney, since 2019 and the couple have one child together. Details about her husband and son explored.
She is known for starring in both action film franchises and independent dramas, and her films have grossed over $6 billion worldwide.
She started in successful films like the X-Men series, Silver Linings Playbook, and American Hustle. The Hunger Games franchise launched Lawrence into stardom, making her one of the most sought-after and profitable actresses in Hollywood.
Away from her fame as a screen goddess, Lawrence is a wife and a mother. When not on-set, she is mostly home to her family. So, who is she married to or dating right now and how many kids does she have? Here’s what we know about her personal life.
Who is Jennifer Lawrence married to?
Despite being a high-profile star, Jennifer Lawrence is notably private about her personal life, and unlike many celebs, she doesn’t have any public social media pages.
But one thing about her personal life which is no more private is her marriage. She has been married to her husband, Cooke Maroney since 2019.
Lawrence and Maroney met through a mutual friend in the spring of 2018. The pal who played matchmaker was reportedly Lawrence’s best friend Laura Simpson.
In June 2019, Cooke proposed to Jennifer less than a year after they started dating. They reportedly hosted an engagement party for their family and friends at the River Café in Brooklyn.
Cooke and Lawrence officially tied the knot in October 2019 when the actress was 29 and her husband was 34. Their nuptial took place in front of 150 of their closest friends and family members at the luxurious Belcourt of Newport mansion in Newport, Rhode Island. Celebrity guests included guests Adele, Amy Schumer, Kris Jenner, Emma Stone, and Ashley Olsen.
The pair keep their relationship private. The actress does not often speak out about her relationship with Maroney, and the couple tends to stay out of the spotlight. In fact, Lawrence moved her dog Pippi to her parent’s farm in Kentucky because the paparazzi so often followed the pair when they went on their daily walks.
During the summer of 2022, however, the pair stepped out for several outings in N.Y.C. Cooke and Maroney were spotted wearing matching outfits while on a breakfast date in July, and were later seen holding hands while grabbing dinner together in August.
They have remained scandal-free in their marriage and are parents of one.
Who is Cooke Maroney?
Cooke Maroney is famous as the spouse of movie star, Jennifer Lawrence.
He was born in New York City in 1984 to parents James Maroney (father) and Suki Fredericks (mother).
When he was young around age 2, his family moved to Leicester, Vermont.
His parents owned a farming business back in the 1990s where they reared animals and currently operate a bed and breakfast.
His father also worked as who was previously an art dealer and the head of American paintings at Christie’s auction house.
He has one sibling, a sister named Annabelle Maroney.
As a teenager, Maroney returned to the Big Apple, where he studied art history at New York University.
By profession, Jennifer Lawrence’s husband, Cooke Maroney is an art gallery director in New York City. He is the Director-At-Large of Gladstone Gallery, a collection of galleries that house pieces from artists like Richard Prince, Anish Kapoor, Matthew Barney, and Lena Dunham’s father Carroll Dunham.
Before Gladstone Gallery, Maroney previously worked at the acclaimed Gagosian gallery network, which exhibits famous contemporary art internationally, including in Rome, London, and Hong Kong.
How many children does Jennifer Lawrence have?
Aside from being an award-winning actress, Jennifer Lawrence added being a mother to her resume years back.
She is a mother of one and has a son named Cy Maroney.
He shares her child with her husband, Cooke Maroney.
After announcing her pregnancy in September 2021, Lawrence gave birth to the couple’s first child in February 2022. The happy news was confirmed when Lawrence and Maroney were spotted on a walk with a baby stroller in April. The actress later revealed that the pair had welcomed a son named Cy during an interview with Vogue.
The new parents don’t plan on sharing many details about their child, with Lawrence explaining that she wants to keep her mom duties separate from her acting job. The couple didn’t share their baby’s name or sex until a few months after his arrival — although Ellen DeGeneres accidentally spilled some details in May 2022.
During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Lawrence and DeGeneres were discussing how the actress lives in the house that DeGeneres owned when she first started her show.
“Now I live next door to you, and I’m looking at you living in my house with a brand new baby when I started this show 20 years ago,” DeGeneres said. “By the way, I do hear you sometimes talking to him and it’s really cute.“
Lawrence had previously discussed her desire to keep her child’s life more private while speaking to Vanity Fair.
“If I was at a dinner party, and somebody was like, ‘Oh, my God, you’re expecting a baby,’ I wouldn’t be like, ‘God, I can’t talk about that. Get away from me, you psycho!’ But every instinct in my body wants to protect their privacy for the rest of their lives, as much as I can,” she shared. “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.“
While Lawrence and Maroney try to keep their son out of the spotlight, the actress has praised her husband’s parenting skills.
“Fortunately, my husband is the greatest father in the entire world,” Lawrence told Interview Magazine in June 2023. “So when I’m working, I don’t have any more guilt than the usual every day, all-day parent guilt.”
Who is Cy Maroney?
Cy Maroney is a celebrity kid and the son of famed actress Jennifer Lawrence and her husband, Cooke Maroney.
He was born in February 2022, in the United States.
The news of the baby’s arrival began circulating in April 2022 after People reported that the actor and Maroney were spotted walking with a stroller. Later in May 2022, Lawrence phoned in during an episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” at which point DeGeneres also confirmed the news by telling her, “Now I live next door to you, and I’m looking at you living in my house with a brand-new baby. . . . By the way, I do hear you sometimes talking to him, and it’s really cute.”
Lawrence herself didn’t talk about her son or being a mother until she was featured in the Vogue cover story for the October 2022 issue. During the interview, she discussed her hesitations and fears about motherhood, saying, “It’s so scary to talk about motherhood. Only because it’s so different for everybody. If I say, ‘It was amazing from the start,’ some people will think, ‘It wasn’t amazing for me at first,’ and feel bad. Fortunately, I have so many girlfriends who were honest. Who were like, ‘It’s scary. You might not connect right away. You might not fall in love right away.’ So I felt so prepared to be forgiving.”
Despite the normal, initial feelings she experienced, Lawrence went on to reveal that she is head over heels in love with her son and that giving birth gave her a refreshing outlook on life. “The morning after I gave birth, I felt like my whole life had started over. Like, now is day one of my life,” she explained. “I was just so in love. I also fell in love with all babies everywhere. Newborns are just so amazing. They’re these pink, swollen, fragile little survivors. Now I love all babies. Now I hear a baby crying in a restaurant and I’m like, Awwww, preciousssss.“
