All About Jennifer Lawrence’s Husband and Baby Cy’s Father, Cooke Maroney

Back in June 2018, Jennifer Lawrence was spotted hanging out with a mysterious man that the internet eventually determined to be New York City-based art gallerist Cooke Maroney. The couple soon married during a lavish October weekend in Rhode Island in 2019, though prior to the engagement they’d kept the relationship mostly out of the public eye.

So who, exactly, is Maroney, and how did an art gallery director catch the eye of one of Hollywood’s biggest stars? Below, a quick primer on Maroney and Lawrence’s relationship so far and their marriage.

Ahead of the wedding, the couple hosted an engagement party in New York City.

Lawrence and Maroney were photographed out in early May 2019, en route to the engagement party they threw for their family and friends in New York City. The appearance came after People reported in April that the couple was seen looking at venues in the city, possibly for that party or their actual wedding ceremony. A source said then that J.Law is a “family girl…I would be surprised if the wedding were not a fairly extensive family affair.”

Lawrence prefers to keep their relationship private, but she spoke a little about their marriage to Vanity Fair in November 2021.

Lawrence shared two tidbits about Maroney in her late 2021 Vanity Fair interview: What it was like when they first started dating, and she got used to not having security with him: “So, when I started dating my now husband, I was so embarrassed to bring my [security guard] when he asked me out,” she said. “I mean, how mortifying would that have been? So I didn’t, and it made me really nervous the first few times, and it turned out totally fine. I realized you get more privacy if….I don’t know if this is even safe to talk about. I have security all the time. Twenty-four hours a day. And a gun!”
