Congratulations are in order for Hollywood actress Jennifer Lawrence and husband Cooke Maroney!

On April 20, People magazine confirmed that the "Don't Look Up" star and the art gallery director have welcomed their first child together. No other details have been provided at the time.

While they keep their relationship relatively private, Lawrence and Maroney started dating in 2018 and tied the knot in Rhode Island in October the following year.

After confirming the pregnancy news in September and stepping back into the spotlight after a years-long hiatus, Lawrence made the press rounds for her Netflix film "Don't Look Up." In an interview with Vanity Fair, she opened about her plans to keep her baby out of the public eye.

"Every instinct in my body wants to protect their privacy for the rest of their lives as much as I can," Lawrence said. "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." She added that she's "grateful and excited" about becoming a mother. Congratulations to the couple on their baby's arrival!

‘Ton of sex’

A few months ago Jennifer Lawrence had joked she had a "ton of sex" while on a three-year acting hiatus.

The 'Don't Look Up' star was very open about how she spent her time away from the film industry, reports femalefirst.co.uk. During an appearance on 'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert', the 31-year-old actress was asked what she did "for the last three years", and the actress, while looking at her baby bump, quipped: "I just had a ton of sex."

The host replied: "Good for you. Good for you."

Lawrence quickly said that she was "joking" before opening up on her more innocent ways of passing the time.

The 'Hunger Games' actress added: "I'm joking. Um, I cooked a little. The pandemic happened and then I cooked and I cleaned a lot."

After the host pondered what the 'Silver Linings Playbook' star would do if she retired from show business, she revealed she has an ideal occupation in mind.

She said: "I think I would be a really good housekeeper. No, I really do. I make a mess, but I'm really good at cleaning it up. I can attack a mess."

The 'Joy' star also gave some insight into filming her new dark satire movie 'Don't Look Up', which also starred Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Mark Rylance and Cate Blanchett, with Covid protocols and even dental mishaps after losing a veneer, which put a "fang" on display, but thanks to special effects was able to edit it out.

She said: "I lost that and I couldn't go to the dentist because of COVID. Thank god for Netflix money."

The actress revealed that the crew would call co-star Meryl Streep "the GOAT" during shooting, and the big screen icon didn't know what it meant.

She added: "We were doing a photoshoot and I said, something like 'GOAT' and Meryl kind of said, 'Yeah, that's right just tell the old goat where to go'."

"And I was like, 'Meryl, you know GOAT means Greatest Of All Time?' And she was like, 'Oh!' I said, 'We haven't just been calling you goat'."
