The former couple welcomed daughters Charleston, 16, and Liberty, 12, in 2006 and 2010, respectively.

Lawrence, 46, and Yawn-Nelson called it quits in July 2020, and their divorce was finalized nearly two years later.

The “Melissa & Joey” alum moved on with Cope, 35, after they met on the set of “My Husband’s Secret Brother,” and he proposed in August 2021.

“Guess the cats outta the bag,” Lawrence told his Instagram followers at the time. “We are beyond excited to see what the future holds for us and to know we will grow old and super wrinkly together is the ultimate blessing.”

The duo tied the knot in February of the following year, the same month the actor finalized his divorce. Seven months later, Cope debuted her baby bump via Instagram.

“It’s been fun getting to know you so far little one!” the then-expectant star wrote in September. “We are so blessed!”

In a post of his own, Lawrence gushed, “The blessings just keep on coming. Proud of you babe! 🖤 Baby Lawrence on the way!”

The “Dancing With the Stars” alum has praised Cope’s relationship with his eldest two children in the past, telling Us Weekly in August 2021 that her stepmom transition has been “smooth.”

“She’s a great person, and the girls do like her, which is great,” Lawrence told the magazine. “It’s awesome.”
