Jennifer Lawrence says she had two miscarriages before welcoming her first child.
The Oscar winner, 32, claims she was in her twenties when she became pregnant and planned to have an abortion before giving birth.
“I had a miscarriage alone in Montreal,” she told Vogue in the October issue.
Lawrence was married to Cooke Maroney when she became pregnant again while filming “Don’t Look Up” a few years later. She intended to have the baby, but she miscarried again after undergoing a dilation and curettage treatment, which involves removing tissue from the uterus.
Lawrence’s experiences have stayed with her, especially since the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade in June.
“I remember thinking about it a million times while I was pregnant,” she added. “Thinking about the things that were happening to my body. I had a great pregnancy. I had a very fortunate 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? ”
Lawrence and Maroney eventually welcomed a baby in February after confirming they were expecting in September 2021. She told Vogue it’s a boy named Cy.
“It’s terrifying to talk about motherhood. Only because everyone’s situation is so unique. Some people will feel uncomfortable if I remark, “It was fantastic from the start.” Fortunately, I have a lot of trustworthy girlfriends. ‘It’s scary,’ they said. You might not get along immediately 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?’”
Her entire outlook altered after she became a mother.
“I felt like my entire life had started anew the morning after I gave birth.” ‘This is day one of my life,’ for example. I just stood there staring. I was completely smitten. I also fell in love with every baby I saw. Newborns are simply lovely. They’re the pink, bloated, and frail survivors. I now adore all babies. When I hear a kid crying in a restaurant, I think to myself, ‘Awwww, preciousssss.'”
So many of my previous films have been about my mum and my upbringing. “I’m curious what will happen now that I’ll be watching someone else’s childhood,” she continued. “And I’m curious what he’ll be discussing with his therapist.” ‘She wouldn’t let me go.’ She gives me a kiss on the lips. She requested that I not attend college.”
Having a child changed Lawrence’s entire perspective on the world.
“My heart has expanded to a capacity I was unaware of,” she explained. “That includes my hubby.” Then they’re both just out there, like, wandering about, crossing streets.
He plans to learn to drive one day. He’s gonna be a stupid teenager and be behind the wheel of a car. And all I’m going to say is, ‘Good night!’ Who, for example, sleeps?”
