Jennifer married art gallery director Cooke in October 2019, after the pair had been dating for a year.

The couple initially remained tight lipped about their romance over the first few months, having started dating in June 2018.

Before they were spotted out in New York City and around the world getting cozy on numerous occasions.


Cooke works at New York’s Gladstone Gallery, which represents artists including Lena Dunham’s dad, Carroll Dunham, as well as Richard Prince, Anish Kapoor, and Bjork’s ex, Matthew Barney.

Speaking on Catt Sadler's podcast, Naked with Catt Sadler, back in June 2019, Jennifer called her hubby "the greatest human being I've ever met".

"He really is, and he gets better," she added.

He is known on the art party scene and previously worked at the prestigious Gagosian gallery.

For Jennifer, the romance began just months after she split from Mother! director Darren Aronofsky, 49, in November 2017 after dating for about a year.

It had been claimed that their age gap caused a problem in their romance, as well as Jennifer admitting they were never able to switch off from talking about work.

The happy news comes as the first trailer for Jennifer Lawrence's upcoming film with Leonardo DiCaprio called Don't Look Up was released this week.

The Netflix comedy from Adam McKay also stars Jonah Hill and Meryl Streep as indifferent government officials.
