Jennifer Lawrence is going to be a mom.

The 31-year-old star of "The Hunger Games" is expecting her first child with husband Cooke Maroney, the actor's representative confirmed to TODAY on Wednesday.

Lawrence and Maroney tied the knot at a Rhode Island wedding ceremony in October 2019. During an appearance on a podcast in October 2020, the actress said her one wedding regret involved her bachelorette party.

"I had a major sleepover at my apartment, but I will say I regret not planning a big one," she said at the time. "My friend was getting married close to me, and I went to her bachelorette and then we ended up — typical Leo — we called it my bachelorette."

This is an exciting time for Lawrence for numerous reasons, as this week saw the release of the first trailer for her star-studded new film "Don't Look Up", also starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Meryl Streep from director Adam McKay.

Jennifer Lawrence Through the Years

Lawrence has previously made it clear that she would love to start a family, telling Diane Sawyer in 2015, "I definitely want to be a mother." The next year, she told Glamour, "I imagine I'll have children, and then my whole life will just seem complete."

After splitting from director Darren Aronofsky in late 2017, she started dating Maroney, a 37-year-old New York City-based art gallerist. He popped the question in February 2019.

"Well, he's just the best person I've ever met in my whole life," the "Dark Phoenix" star gushed about him to "Entertainment Tonight" in June 2019.

If the red and blue political map turns your stomach green, look to Maine for an alternative vision for picking our presidents. On Election Day, the state will be the first to try a ranked choice voting system in a presidential general election. So what is ranked choice voting and why do its supporters say it’s a better way to cast a ballot? NBCLX’s Chase Cain explains.
