The little one’s moniker was inspired by one of her husband Cooke Maroney’s favorite artists, Cy Twombly.
The Oscar winner felt like her “whole life … started over” when they welcomed the infant, calling his arrival her new “day one.”
Lawrence, 32, explained, “I just stared. I was just so in love.”
The “Don’t Look Up” star also “fell in love with all babies everywhere” at the time, gushing, “Newborns are just so amazing. They’re these pink, swollen, fragile little survivors. Now I love all babies. … My heart has stretched to a capacity that I didn’t know about.”
Lawrence, however, was prepared to “be so forgiving” of herself if she did not immediately connect with her newborn.
“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?’” she recalled.
The “Hunger Games” star noted that she got pregnant before conceiving her son but had to get a D&C after suffering a miscarriage.
The pregnancy loss was not her first, as Lawrence “had a miscarriage alone in Montreal” in her early 20s.
The “Mother!” star, who is fresh off of a two-year acting hiatus, believes that motherhood will now influence the projects she pursues.
“I have had a pretty consistent theme in all my movies since I was 18,” she told the magazine. “I’m curious if, now that I’m older and I have a baby, I’ll finally break out of that.”
Before giving birth last year, Lawrence told Vanity Fair that she does not plan to make her child’s life public.
“Every instinct in my body wants to protect their privacy for the rest of their lives, as much as I can,” the then-expectant star said in November 2021.
“I do hear you sometimes talking to him,” DeGeneres, who is Lawrence’s neighbor, said during the May interview. “It’s so sweet.”
