While neither Jennifer or Cooke have spoken publicly about their relationship, insiders gushed about their chemistry, with a source telling People in 2018: ‘She is smiling like I have never seen her do with any of her previous boyfriends’.
By 2019, insiders claimed the couple were talking about starting a family.
‘They both want children and have been discussing starting a family,’ a source told ET Online back in 2019.
‘Their families truly believe they are meant to be; his family loves her family and vice versa, so their parents are excited. Their parents get along so well and are all looking forward to big family get-togethers.’
While many of Jennifer’s past romances have been conducted under the gaze of the world, the actress and her husband have enjoyed their romance away from the public eye, taking low-key trips to Europe and being spotted on dinner dates in Cooke’s home city of New York.
On September 8 2021, the star’s representative confirmed her pregnancy with People.
Jennifer was spotted for the first time with her baby bump on display on September 8 in photos obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com.
She welcomed their first child in February 2022, but did not disclose the gender or name.
In May, she appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show and the host referred to her baby as a ‘he,’ appearing to reveal she welcomed a son. Jennifer did not confirm or deny the gender.
