The queen of keeping it real, Jennifer Lawrence, has found her perfect match. After getting engaged in early 2019, the actress has been married to Cook Maroney since October 2019. But exactly who is Jennifer Lawrence's husband? Turns out he has a pretty impressive resume.
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 spouse.
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.
He's a New England Native
According to The Independent, Maroney grew up in Vermont, where his parents own a farm. His wife, on the other hand, hails from Louisville, Kentucky.

He's an NYU Alum
Maroney ventured to the Big Apple to study art history at New York University, US Weekly reported. The Cut also noted that he put in time at the notorious Gagosian gallery after graduating.
They Met Through a Mutual Friend
Given their low-key love, the duo had an equally laid-back meet-cute: Page Six revealed 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.
His Instagram Is Private
While Lawrence has a rep for being social media-shy, her gallerist husband posts to a personal Instagram account—that's private.
He's a Nice Person
We would expect nothing less than the best for the Red Sparrow actress, and Maroney reportedly passed 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."
He Proposed in February 2019
Lawrence and Maroney were dating for less than a year when he popped the question to his now-wife. Word broke of their secret engagement when fans spotted the couple at a celebratory dinner in New York City one Saturday night—and there was an enormous rock on J. Law's finger.
They Celebrated Their Engagement in May 2019
Three months after popping the question, Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney celebrated their engagement with a private party at New York City's River Cafe.
They Wed on October 19, 2019
The couple headed to Rhode Island for their star-studded fall nuptials in 2019. They tied the knot on October 19 at Belcourt of Newport in front of A-listers like Kris Jenner, Amy Schumer, Nicole Ritchie, and Adele. The bride reportedly chose to wear a Dior gown down the aisle.
They Find Joy in the Little Things
In November 2021, the usually tight-lipped actress speaks to Vanity Fair about her two years of marriage. “I really enjoy going to the grocery store with him,” she says. “I don’t know why but it fills me with a lot of joy. I think maybe because it’s almost a metaphor for marriage. ‘Okay, we’ve got this list. These are the things we need. Let’s work together and get this done.’"
They Welcomed Their First Child in February 2022.
The Oscar-winner and art gallerist welcomed their first baby in February 2022—three years after Maroney popped the question. The parents have yet to share the baby's name as part of their commitment to protecting the child's privacy.
