The queen of keeping it real, Jennifer Lawrence, has found her perfect match. News of the engagement to boyfriend Cooke Maroney broke Tuesday night after sources witnessed a celebratory dinner between the two where The Hunger Games alum was sporting a new, little diamond accessory. Which raises of the question of who exactly is J. Law's elusive beau? The pair has largely kept their relationship out of the public eye (made even easier by Lawrence's lack of Instagram), but here's everything we've managed to learn about the Oscar-winning star's future spouse.

1. He's deep in the New York art scene

Maroney currently works as the director of Gladstone Gallery in New York City, which totes elite clients like Lena Dunham’s father, Carroll Dunham, and famed sculptor Anish Kapoor, according to The Cut.

2. He's a New England native

According to The Independent, the future Mr. Jennifer Lawrence grew up in Vermont, where his parents own a farm. His soon-to-be wife, on the other hand, hails from Louisville, Kentucky.

3. He's an NYU alum

Maroney ventured to the Big Apple to study art history at New York University, US Weekly reports. The Cut also notes that he put in time at the notorious Gagosian gallery post-graduation.

4. The couple met through a mutual friend

Given their low-key love, the duo had an equally laid-back meet-cute: Page Six reveals that Lawrence's best friend, Laura Simpson, takes credit for the couple's introduction. News of the pair's relationship first broke in June 2018, just a few months after Lawrence called it quits with Mother! director Darren Aronofsky.

5. He DOES have an Instagram, but good luck stalking

While Lawrence has a rep for being social media-shy, her 34-year-old fiancé posts to a personal Instagram account...that's private.

6. He's a nice person

We would expect nothing less than the best for the Red Sparrow actress, and Maroney reportedly passes the personality test (very important). According to sources via The Cut, he's been described as "a nice-slash-fun dude," a "great dude," and "an all-around good guy and a nice guy." There you have it, folks.
