Jennifer Lawrence’s boyfriend Cooke Maroney has popped the question! And the actress said, “YES!”
Yes, according to a representative for the Hunger Games star, Lawrence and Maroney are engaged. Speculations over their engagement began making the rounds after Jennifer, 28, was recently seen wearing a “massive” ring on a date night, according to Page Six, but until just now, nothing had been confirmed.
The A-list actress and her art gallerist beau began their relationship in June 2018, and were reportedly introduced by Jennifer’s best friend, Laura Simpson, who was the actress’ 2014 Oscars date. Jennifer’s previous relationships had been to actor Nicholas Hoult and filmmaker Darren Aronofsky, and as such had been much more public.
But she and Cooke, 34, have decided to keep their relationship out of the public eye.
The first time the two were spotted out and about as a couple, was during a casual date in New York City back in June, when they were pictured with linked arms and bright smiles.
They began appearing in public as a couple more often after that, including going on a romantic getaway to Italy in late June, where they enjoyed a dinner at the Italian restaurant and wine bar Felice 64 – and judging from the picture below, immensely enjoyed each other’s company as well.
As a source told E! News at the time their date lasted for hours, and the lovebirds were “totally into each other.”
(Though who wouldn’t be into Jennifer Lawrence, am I right?)
After Italy, the two took a trip to romantic Paris in August and held hands as they strolled through the city’s cobblestoned roads.
And then it was back to Italy (quite the eventful summer), for the pair, as they flew to Rome to visit several of the historic city’s landmarks, including the Galleria Borghese, naturally, for the art enthusiast.
Back in 2015, the Silver Linings Playbook actress told Teen Vogue magazine that she was looking forward to getting married one day.
“I can’t wait to be married,” she said. “I feel like if I find that one person who I want to spend the rest of my life with, who I want to be the father of my children, that I would absolutely not f*** it up.”
Lawrence is one of the world’s highest-paid actresses and has won the Best Actress Oscar for her role in 2012’s Silver Linings Playbook movie, where she starred alongside Bradley Cooper. According to Today USA, Maroney is a director at the Gladstone Gallery in New York.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
