Jennifer Lawrence Announces Engagement After 'Whirlwind Romance'

Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence is engaged to art dealer Cooke Maroney, a spokesperson for the Hollywood actress has confirmed.

Oscar award-winning Jennifer first sparked rumours that she was set to wed Cooke when she was spotted wearing a "massive ring" on her finger while enjoying date night with her boyfriend in New York at the weekend.

And a source has told Page Six: "It was a giant rock. They seemed like they were celebrating and people were talking about it. The ring was very noticeable."

The pair were reportedly enjoying a date at French restaurant Raoul's. The insider continued: "They were sitting back in a corner. She was wearing a cute black dress with white polka dots."

It's unclear when Cooke, who currently works as an art gallerist at Upper East Side gallery Gladstone 64, popped the question to the Red Sparrow star.

Jennifer, 28, was first romantically linked to Cooke, 34, in June 2018, but the pair have kept their relationship almost private, and hardly any pictures of the couple together exist. The pair haven't ever really confirmed to the public that they were an item either.

But the newly engaged couple were apparently introduced by mutual pal, Laura Simpson (also Jennifer's best friend) and their relationship has been described as a "whirlwind" by many.

Since then, the lovebirds have enjoyed a number of dates together in New York City and have also holidayed together in Europe.

Silver Linings Playbook actress Jennifer famously dated Coldplay's Chris Martin, actor Nicholas Hoult and director Darren Aronofsky.

A spokesperson for Jennifer has confirmed to numerous publications that she is engaged, although there is no wedding date set just yet.

Jennifer has spoken candidly on marriage in the past, telling Vogue in 2015: "I can't wait to be married. I feel like if I find that one person who I want to spend the rest of my life with, who I want to be the father of my children, that I would absolutely not f*ck it up

"But I'm also not banking on that."

Congratulations again to the happy couple!
