Speaking to People, Lawrence said, “It just feels so right. Life can be challenging at times, but when God gives you the right person, it’s worth it. When you meet the right person, if you’re lucky enough, it cuts to the chase so quick.” The actor added, “I have somebody who is like-minded and has the same love language and we communicate the same way. That’s super important. And I am so thankful.”

The couple met on the set of the 2021 film 'My Husband's Secret Brother'. It is quite obvious that the film holds a "special place in" Cope's heart. Speaking about the relationship, Cope said, "From Day One, it was such a safe place to be myself. He loves everything about me and celebrates all those weird quirks about me. I was so blessed to be in a position to receive that. Two weeks in, I was like, 'I will be with you forever.'"
