The 31-year-old Hunger Games star previously described her husband as “the greatest peron I’ve ever met”.

Speaking on a 2019 podcast, Jennifer was asked why she married him and said: “I don’t know, I started with the basics: ‘How do I feel? Is he nice? Is he kind?’

“It’s just – this is the one, I know that sounds really stupid but he’s just, he’s the greatest person I’ve ever met, so I feel very honoured to become a Maroney.”
