Jennifer Lawrence revealed the name and sex of her firstborn child with husband Cooke Maroney, whom she welcomed earlier this year.
In the cover story for Vogue’s October issue, the Oscar-winning actress confirmed that she welcomed a baby boy named Cy in February 2022.
His name was inspired by painter Cy Twombly, one of Maroney’s favourite artists, per E! News. In the interview, she opened up about some of her fears of motherhood and being transparent about her experiences.
“It’s so scary to talk about motherhood. Only because it’s so different for everybody,” she said.
“If I say, ‘It was amazing from the start,’ some people will think, ‘It wasn’t amazing for me at first,’ and feel bad. Fortunately I have so many girlfriends who were honest. Who were like, ‘It’s scary. You might not connect right away. You might not fall in love right away.’ So I felt so prepared to be forgiving.”

However, when she finally met her son, she felt like her life began again, saying her “heart has stretched to a capacity that I didn’t know about.”
“Like, ‘Now is day one of my life.’ I just stared. I was just so in love,” she recalled, adding that she now finds all babies adorable.
“I also fell in love with all babies everywhere. Newborns are just so amazing. They’re these pink, swollen, fragile little survivors. Now I love all babies. Now I hear a baby crying in a restaurant and I’m like, ‘Awwww, preciousssss.'”
