Actress Jennifer Lawrence has recently welcomed her first baby with husband Cooke Maroney. The Don’t Look Up actress and art dealer became parents earlier this year. On April 12, Lawrence and Maroney were seen taking a walk with their baby but have yet to speak publicly about the arrival.
The couple has largely kept their pregnancy journey private ever since Lawrence’s rep confirmed the news back in September, instead of allowing glimpses during multiple low-key romantic outings together in New York City and at the Don’t Look Up premiere in December. The couple was recently spotted out on a stroll with their newborn. Lawrence and Maroney engaged in February 2019 and tied the knot the following October.
However, earlier this month, Amy Schumer spoke about Lawrence’s newborn during a lie detector test with Vanity Fair. Asked if she thinks motherhood has changed Lawrence for the better, the comedian said she’s “only texted with (Lawrence) but I bet it has.” The Life and Beth star also said she has yet to meet the baby and doesn’t know his or her name. “She’s smart enough not to tell me,” Schumer joked.
Meanwhile, Lawrence recently said in Vanity Fair’s December issue that she hopes to “protect” her child’s “privacy” as much as possible. “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 said.
A film source close to the actress previously told People that Lawrence was “looking forward” to becoming a new parent. “Jen wanted a family for a long time and found an ideal mate whom she loves, respects and enjoys being around,” said the film source. “She loves married life, and they have a solid foundation for a baby. She is very happy and looking forward to being a mom.”
