Jennifer Lawrence Just Got Engaged

Jennifer Lawrence - American Hustle

Like many celebrities, Jennifer Lawrence's love life has often been at the center of media speculation. The Oscar-winning actress has found herself in relationships that have attracted a lot of media attention and some that have not gotten as much notice. While some of her relationships have been very high profile, there are a few romantic flings that haven't received quite as much ink as others.

Lawrence's latest relationship with Cooke Maroney, a 34-year-old art gallery owner, was previously in the latter category. They have been dating for about nine months now, starting in May 2018, but the public eye was generally kept in the dark. But now, that is completely set to change. As it was just revealed, Jennifer Lawrence is officially engaged.

While Jennifer Lawrence didn't confirm the news herself, a representative for the actress reportedly broke the news to People. Furthermore, Lawrence was spotted with a "massive" ring on her finger when she and Cooke Maroney were enjoying dinner together in New York City. The dinner was believed to be "celebratory" in nature. Furthermore, the reported engagement ring was considered not only massive but "very noticeable." Also, according to the people close to the art gallery owner and award-recognized actress, the news isn't meant to be a secret now -- despite no official announcement.

The news about Cooke Maroney and Jennifer Lawrence's relationship was confirmed back in June, although it's believed that they were dating in May -- if not earlier. While their coupling wasn't as high-profile as some of Lawrence's past relationships, they haven't necessarily shied away from it either. They have been seen together in several spots throughout the past few months, and they have been to Paris, Rome and other places together as well.

The relationship was formed shortly after Jennifer Lawrence announced that she was taking a brief break from moviemaking following the release of her latest film, Red Sparrow. The year away from acting found the actress getting more involved with the organization Represent.Us., which is dedicated to getting young people more politically active. Since that time, Lawrence has been spending less time in the media spotlight this past year, beyond some exceptions like her annual visit to a children's hospital in Kentucky on Christmas Eve. And in that time, the actress has found herself in love once again.

But this time, Jennifer Lawrence is hoping the relationship will last. The dedication has been made. Now, we'll have to wait until we hear more details about the forthcoming wedding. Nothing is currently known in that regard; it's still early in the planning stages. But we will certainly keep you posted.

But in the meantime, we extend our congratulations to Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney for their exciting engagement news! We hope to hear more about their developments in the new year.
