The pregnancy was confirmed by Lawrence’s representative after the exciting news started spreading on Twitter on Wednesday evening. 

While no additional information has been released yet, we can imagine that the couple must be thrilled.

Lawrence is expected to star in Bad Blood, a biopic of Elizabeth Holmes, the founder of Theranos, who is now standing trial for fraud in 2022. 

The award-winning actress has won multiple Oscars over the years and was reported to be the world’s highest-paid actress in 2015 and 2016, according to Forbes.

Lawrence’s bombshell pregnancy announcement is just one of the many exciting baby announcements we’ve had from some of the hottest celebrities this year.

Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost

Scarlett Johansson has been a hot topic in the news recently with everyone hyped up about the release of her new Marvel film, Black Widow. However, recently, Johansson made the news again when news began circulating that she was actually heavily pregnant with her second child.

Then, an anonymous source told celebrity gossip website Page Six that “Scarlett is pregnant, but has been keeping it very quiet. She has been keeping a very low profile.”

The source added that Johansson, who is married to Saturday Night Live star Colin Jost, will be due soon. 

Johansson’s new baby will be her second child. The Marvel star currently has a six-year-old daughter, Rose, with her ex-husband, Romain Dauriac.
