It seems like congratulations may be in order.

According to TMZ, Jennifer Lawrence and her husband Cooke Maroney have apparently welcomed their first child together.

The outlet reports that the baby was born in California, and more specifically in L.A. County, but those are all the (as yet unconfirmed by any reps of the couple) details we have for the moment.

As we wait for official confirmation, here's a handy recap on the (supposed) new parents. Lawrence is, as you know, an actress. She is known for The Hunger Games and Silver Linings Playbook, and currently stars in Netflix' Don't Look Up. Maroney is a high-profile art dealer, who keeps himself generally out of the spotlight.

The lovebirds started dating in June 2018, reportedly got engaged some months later, then married in October 2019. Finally, in September 2021, a rep for Lawrence confirmed that she was pregnant with her first child.

Then, Lawrence and her baby bump went on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert and joked about how she "just had a ton of sex" during her recent acting break. Helpful, for making babies.

And now the child has apparently arrived, but with Lawrence's usual discretion, it's possible we won't know the gender, name or any other information for a while yet. Which totally makes sense.

Lawrence had taken a break starting in 2018, but since 2020 has been working on a few new projects. Her IMDb page shows she currently has one movie in post-production, and another—in which she portrays Elizabeth Holmes—in pre-production. Film words!

Anyway, congratulations to the (maybe, possibly) new parents!
