Jennifer Lawrence has opened up about navigating motherhood in the spotlight.

In a recent interview led by fellow Hollywood A-lister Cameron Diaz, The Hunger Games actress reflected on how she has changed her attitude towards parenting since welcoming her now one-year-old son, Cy, with her gallerist husband, Cooke Maroney.

In her tell-all chat for Interview magazine, J-Law expressed her initial concerns about shielding her son from the paparazzi. 

"I was so nervous when I was pregnant. I was getting paparazzi’d, and I was just like, "How the [expletive] am I not going to lose it on these guys when they’re taking a picture of my baby?" she revealed.

Embracing her inevitable attention pre and post-pregnancy, Jennifer expressed her newfound "zen" approach, accepting that while her fame is part of life, she won't let her anxiety and anger at all the unwanted attention rub off on her son.

"The best thing I can do is just make sure he knows he’s loved, and that he’s our number one priority, and try to be a good example of kindness," she shared with Cameron.

In a bid for privacy, the Oscar-winning mother of one has kept a relatively low profile since giving birth to Cy in February 2022, after a challenging pregnancy journey led her to experience two miscarriages.

In a heartbreaking interview for Vogue, Jennifer revealed she first fell pregnant in her early 20s before she sadly "had a miscarriage alone in Montreal".

Jennifer said that she got pregnant again during the filming of Adam McKay's Netflix comedy Don’t Look Up but suffered a second miscarriage.

Thankfully, Jennifer's pregnancy with Cy was a healthy one. She later gushed: "I mean the euphoria of Cy is just - Jesus, it’s impossible.

"I always tell him, I love you so much it’s impossible."

She added: "The morning after I gave birth, I felt like my whole life had started over. Like, 'Now is day one of my life.' I just stared. I was just so in love. I also fell in love with all babies everywhere. Newborns are just so amazing."
