Brosnyc/Backgrid Pregnant Jennifer Lawrence Takes Growing Baby Bump for Afternoon Stroll Through N.Y.C. On Sunday, the Hunger Games star was seen strolling the streets of N.Y.C, putting her bump on full display in all-black workout attire with matching black slides. The actress' rep confirmed the happy baby news to PEOPLE last month that she and Maroney are expecting. Lawrence and Maroney were first linked in June 2018, and the pair were engaged the following February. The couple then tied the knot on Oct. 19, 2019, in Rhode Island. A film source close to the actress previously told PEOPLE that Lawrence is "looking forward" to becoming a new parent. Brosnyc/Backgrid "Jen wanted a family for a long time and found an ideal mate whom she loves, respects and enjoys being around," said the source. "She loves married life, and they have a solid foundation for a baby. She is very happy and looking forward to being a mom." "She loves her work and that will continue," the source continued. "Like other actors, she will balance her career and her life as a wife and mom. She will do it well. Jen is grounded and ready to be a parent because she loves family life." The source also explained that the Don't Look Up star is proudly "ambitious and craves her work," adding, "she knows a fulfilled mom is better than one who gives up what she loves then regrets it. I doubt that would ever happen with her."
