Jennifer Lawrence may be a new mom, but that hasn’t stopped her mama bear instinct from kicking in strong. The actress, who welcomed her first child this year with husband Cooke Maroney, has long since valued her privacy and she’s going to make sure her baby has the same.
Lawrence sat down with Vanity Fair in Nov. ’21, before her son was born and talked about what she had experienced so far in her pregnancy. “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 says.

Lawrence took quite some time off from Hollywood after the success of The Hunger Games, so she’s quite familiar with the precious notion of privacy. In regards to her son, she 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.”
Lawrence and her husband tied the knot back in 2019 and revealed they were expecting in Sept. 2021 with few details. Despite giving birth in Feb. 2021, the news was not officially confirmed until the actress chatted with Ellen via phone during the talk show host’s final few episodes in May.
Even then, it was simply a matter of saying “thank you” when Ellen congratulated her on becoming a mom. Despite wanting all the deets about cute baby Lawrence-Maroney, we totally get the actress’s plight to keeping her son safe and free from the critical eyes of the public.
