After months of speculation, it's official - Jennifer Lawrence is pregnant. 

The Oscar-winning actress (31), who's expecting her first child with husband Cooke Maroney (37), debuted her baby bump on the red carpet at the premiere of her new Netflix movie, Don't Look Up. 

Jennifer was glowing in a dazzling gold Dior gown with semi-sheer cap sleeves and cape as she marked her return to the red carpet after a three-year break from acting.

The actress posed and smiled for the cameras alongside her Don't Look Up co-stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep, Timothée Chalamet, and Jonah Hill.

The mom-to-be also showed off her bump when she wore a black polka dot bodycon dress to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. During the interview, when she was asked what she did during her break, she cheekily replied, "I just had a ton of sex!"

“I'm joking. I cooked a little. The pandemic happened, and then I cooked and I cleaned a lot,” she added.

She said her time off "was really nice."

“I took a break, and nobody really cared and it was quiet. I got to feel like I could become a part of the world again without fanfare.” 

Jennifer said she has no back-up plan if she decides to step away from acting permanently, but she does think she'd make a pretty good housekeeper.

“No, I really do. I make a mess, but I'm good at cleaning it up. I can attack a mess.”

For now, she's back on our screens and loving it, even if every day with co-stars Leonardo and Timothée wasn't always fun on the Don't Look Up set.

“There was one day when they just drove me crazy. It was hell.

“I don’t know what it was. We were in the car together and Timothée was just excited to be out of the house [after lockdown]. I think it was, like, his first scene. And Leo had picked the song that was playing in the car and was just, like, ‘You know, this song was about, you know, blah, blah, blah.’”

Jennifer also related the story of how she had to explain the meaning of GOAT [greatest of all time] to Meryl Streep.

“We were doing a photoshoot and I said, something like “Goat” and Meryl kind of said, ‘Yeah, that's right just tell the old goat where to go,’” she recounted.

“And I was like, 'Meryl, you know goat means Greatest Of All Time?' and she was like, ‘Oh.’I said, ‘We haven't been calling you a goat!’”

Don't Look Up streams on Netflix from 10 December.
