Jennifer Lawrence has announced that she is pregnant with her first child with husband Cooke Maroney.

The Oscar-winner, 31, is expecting her first child with New York City art dealer husband Cooke Maroney, a spokesperson told People.

Lawrence and Maroney got engaged in February 2019 and were married in October 2019 in Newport, Rhode Island.

After announcing their engagement, Lawrence described Maroney as "the greatest human being I've ever met."

"He really is, and he gets better ... I started with the basics; 'How do I feel? Is he nice? Is he kind?' It's just - this is the one, I know that sounds really stupid but he's just, he's - you know," she said.

''I wasn't at a place where I was like, 'I'm ready to get married.' I just met Cooke and I wanted to marry him. We wanted to marry each other, we wanted to commit fully.

"He's my best friend, so I want to legally bind him to me forever. Fortunately, the paperwork exists for such a thing. It's the greatest. You find your favourite person on the planet, you're like: You can't leave."

Lawrence will star alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in Netflix film Don’t Look Up.
