When Jennifer Lawrence welcomed her son Cy into the world, it marked a major turning point in her life.

Lawrence and Maroney were later photographed on a family walk with their newborn son in April.

The couple’s decision to name their son Cy was revealed in September 2022. Lawrence shared in an interview with Vogue that Cy was named after the American painter Cy Twombly, a favorite artist of Maroney’s. Twombly, known for his abstract works, passed away in 2011, making the name choice a meaningful nod to Maroney’s profession as the director of the Gladstone Gallery.
