In a new interview, Jennifer Lawrence unveils details about motherhood, and the inspiration behind her son’s name, Cy.
Jennifer Lawrence opened up about motherhood like never before during her Vogue cover story for their October issue. The Hunger Games star, who welcomed her first child with husband, Cooke Maroney in February of this year, reflected on the daunting experience of being a first-time parent: “The morning after I gave birth, I felt like my whole life had started over.”
She continued, “I just stared. I was just so in love. I also fell in love with all babies everywhere. Newborns are just so amazing. They’re these pink, swollen, fragile little survivors. Now I love all babies. Now I hear a baby crying in a restaurant and I’m like, ‘Awwww, preciousssss.’”
Lawrence also divulged details about the two miscarriages she underwent before her son was born, and how those experiences further added to her disappointment over the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade earlier this year: “I remember a million times thinking about it while I was pregnant, thinking about the things that were happening to my body.” The actress added, “and I had a great pregnancy. But every single second of my life was different. And it would occur to me sometimes: What if I was forced to do this?”
Finally, Jennifer Lawrence revealed that her baby boy’s name is Cy, named after one of her husband’s favorite artists, Cy Twombly, an American painter. She concluded by expressing her undying love for her son: “I mean the euphoria of Cy is just—Jesus, it’s impossible. I always tell him, ‘I love you so much it’s impossible’.”
