On Tuesday, actress Jennifer Lawrence’s rep confirmed to INSIDER that Lawrence was engaged to art gallerist Cooke Maroney.
Page Six initially broke the news when actress Jennifer Lawrence was reportedly spotted wearing a “massive ring” on her finger earlier this week. The source added that the couple seemed to be celebrating something and people were talking about her “noticeable” ring.
Here’s what we know about Jennifer Lawrence’s new fiancé Cooke Maroney, an art gallerist who seems to live a fairly private life.
Maroney and Lawrence were first reported to be dating in June 2018, but when they actually began dating is unconfirmed
In June 2018, Page Six reported that actress Jennifer Lawrence had started dating art gallerist Cooke Maroney. Although the two have not spoken publicly about their relationship and they have not confirmed when they actually started dating, from that moment on, they were photographed together multiple times.
Maroney grew up in Vermont and his dad also worked in the art industry
In a 2015 Medium-published interview withMaroney’s parents, James Maroney and Suki Fredericks, writer Olivia French reported that the couple owns an Oliver Hill Farm in Leicester, Vermont. The farm houses a bed and breakfast and the farm is advertised as a place to host weddings. (He was erroneously referred to as “Cook” in the article).
Although his parents were based in New York City, they shared that they didn’t want to raise their children in the city, so they decided to move the family up north to start a farm. Before they moved, Maroney’s father was an art dealer in Manhattan and had once served as the Head of American Paintings at Christie’s.
He has a sister
Maroney also has a sister named Annabelle.
He’s the director at an art gallery in New York City
Maroney is currently the director of NYC’s Gladstone art gallery. The gallery has locations in New York and Brussels. A few years prior, he worked at Gagosian Gallery, a global network of contemporary galleries with locations in New York City.
Maroney and Lawrence reportedly met through a mutual friend
When Page Six broke the news that the couple was dating in June, they reported from a source that the couple met through a mutual friend.
The two keep things pretty private
When they were first reported to be dating, a source told Page Six that the two of them “have been very private and careful not to be seen together.” Since then, the two have been photographed together but have reportedly only attended one public event together which was in September 2018 when People reported that Lawrence took him to the New York Film Festival premiere of “The Favourite.”
They have travelled together
Maroney and Lawrence are regularly photographed on dates in New York City, but they have also been photographed in Europe. Last summer, the two were photographed in Rome and in Paris.
