Cy’s mom! Jennifer LawrenceSince welcoming her baby boy with her husband, she opened up about motherhood Cooke Maroneyearlier in the year, he revealed his name in her VogueCover story.
“It’s so scary to talk about motherhood. Only because it’s so different for everybody,” the 32-year-old Causeway star told the magazine in the story published on Tuesday, September 6, noting that the couple picked the name after one of Maroney’s favorite artists — Cy Twombly.
The Oscar winner continued: “If I say, It was amazing from the start, some people will think, ‘It wasn’t amazing for me at first, and feel bad.’ Fortunately, I have so many girlfriends who were honest. Who were like, ‘It’s scary. It’s possible to not fall in love right away. You might not fall in love right away.’ So I felt so prepared to be forgiving. I remember walking with one of my best friends at, like, nine months, and being like, ‘Everyone keeps saying that I will love my baby more than my cat. But that’s not true. Maybe I’ll love him as much as my cat?’”
Lawrence told the reporter, however, that she didn’t struggle with finding love for Cy.
“The morning after I gave birth, I felt like my whole life had started over,” she explained. “Like, ‘Now is day one of my life.’ I just stared. I fell in love with you instantly. I also fell in LOVE with all babies. They are so beautiful. 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.’”
The Hunger GamesAlum said that motherhood affects her job.
“So many of my films in the past have been about my mother, my childhood. I wonder what will happen now that I’ll be witnessing somebody else’s childhood,” she said. “And I wonder what he’s going to be talking about with his therapist. ‘She wouldn’t put me down. She kisses me on my lips. She asked me not to go to college.’”
The actress noted that her son started smiling a few months ago and is now “on the precipice of laughing,” gushing: “I mean the euphoria of Cy is just— Jesus, it’s impossible. I always tell him, ‘I love you so much it’s impossible.’”
