Is the cat out of the bag?
Ellen DeGeneres appeared to reveal the sex of Jennifer Lawrence’s 3-month-old baby when the actress made her final appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
“People do not know this, but I used to live in the house that you live in now when I started the show 20 years ago,” the talk show host, 64, told Lawrence, 31, over the phone in Monday’s episode.
“Now I live next door to you, and I’m looking at you living in my house with a brand-new baby,” DeGeneres added. “By the way, I do hear you sometimes talking to him.”
The “Finding Dory” star noted that Lawrence’s conversations with her apparent baby boy are “really cute.”
“I can hear you go, ‘I know!'” DeGeneres explained. “It’s so sweet.”
Lawrence, who has yet to describe her motherhood experience, spoke to Vanity Fair in November 2021 about her plans to keep her little one’s life private.
“If I was at a dinner party, and somebody was like, ‘Oh, my God, you’re expecting a baby,’ I would not be like, ‘God, I can not talk about that. Get away from me, you psycho! ‘”The Oscar winner joked at the time. “But every instinct in my body wants to protect their privacy for the rest of their lives, as much as I can.”
The then-pregnant star explained that she did not want the public to feel “welcome into their existence,” adding, “I feel like that just starts with not including them in this part of my work.”
Page Six broke the news in June 2018 that Lawrence and Maroney, 37, were dating, and the pair got engaged in February of the following year. They wed in Rhode Island eight months after the art gallerist’s proposal.
The “Silver Linings Playbook” star previously said she was not plan[ning] on getting married. ”
In November 2015, she explained to Diane Sawyer that while she “definitely” wanted to be a mother, she did not see herself walking down the aisle.
“I do not feel like I need anything to complete me,” the Golden Globe winner said. “I love meeting people, men, women, whatever, I love people coming into your life and bringing something.”
