Jennifer Lawrence has finally revealed the name of the son she shares with Cooke Maroney.

The 32-year-old actress graced the cover of Vogue magazine and announced that she and her husband - whom she wed in October 2019 - welcomed a baby boy named Cy in February.

The Hunger Games star said in the October edition of the publication that the pair's child was named after the American painter Cy Twombly, who is one of Maroney’s favorite artists.

"I mean the euphoria of Cy is just - Jesus, it’s impossible. I always tell him, I love you so much it’s impossible," she said, adding that the morning after she gave birth she felt like her life "started over".

The Passengers actress expressed that motherhood has expanded her heart "to a capacity that I didn’t know about," but noted that it's "scary" to talk about her experience because "it’s so different for everybody".

Lawrence clarified that if she said that her pregnancy experience was "amazing" for her then other people would feel bad if it wasn’t amazing for them.

She also spoke about some hesitations she had around becoming a parent, saying that her close friends had told her that "you might not connect right away," so she felt "prepared to be forgiving".

"I remember walking with one of my best friends at, like, nine months, and being like, Everyone keeps saying that I will love my baby more than my cat. But that’s not true. Maybe I’ll love him as much as my cat?" she questioned.

Elsewhere in her interview, Lawerence also reflected on how grateful she was for a smooth pregnancy - all amid a new, post-Roe v. Wade overturned country.

She explained how the Supreme court ruling resurfaced heartbreaking memories for her, revealing that she had her first miscarriage in her early 20s. She also had another loss while shooting Don't Look Up in late 2020/early 2021.

At that point in her life, Lawrence was married and told the outlet that she wanted to have a child but unfortunately, she had another miscarriage, this time having a D&C which is the surgical procedure by which tissue is removed from the uterus.

The Red Sparrow actress said that she found it hard to understand how young women with restricted options were forced into unwanted pregnancies, especially since she just experienced motherhood herself this year.

The Oscar-winning actress - who is currently doing press tours for the new film Causeway - previously disclosed to Vanity Fair in November the reasons why she kept the details about her new baby private.

"Every instinct in my body wants to protect their privacy for the rest of their lives, as much as I can," she said. "I don’t want anyone to feel welcome into their existence. And I feel like that just starts with not including them in this part of my work."
