Entertainment icons Emily Blunt and John Krasinski have delighted fans with their union for over ten years, stamping their names among Hollywood power couples.
Despite being married for so long, their love for each other remains unwavering, further strengthened by their two adorable children.
Their successful careers, which have seen them work on the same projects together on occasions, further cemented their place as the fan-favourite lovebirds. Take this brief dive into their picture-perfect romance to find out why most people may consider it too good to be through.
EMILY BLUNT AND JOHN KRASINSKI’S FIRST MEETING
The couple’s first encounter was a chance meeting at a Los Angeles restaurant in 2008. In a 2018 interview, Blunt admitted she was in the restaurant chatting with a friend when Krasinski walked in. The friend quickly introduced them and kick-started their life of love.
Admittedly, it was love at first sight for the duo. During a 2011 appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Krasinski admitted that although he was not out for a relationship at the time, he could hardly stop himself from confessing how much he liked her as soon as they shook hands.
THE FIRST DATE
Blunt and Krasinski had their first date that same year on a gun range. During a sit-down with Conan O’Brien in 2012, the actor explained how he took his future wife to a gun range on their first date because he was confident he would never end up with her.
Hence, he wanted to blow it as soon as possible. Although not the most romantic first date ever, Blunt was impressed enough to give him other chances. They became an item soon after.
JOHN KRASINSKI AND EMILY BLUNT’S ENGAGEMENT
Krasinski popped the big question in August 2009 and received a yes after an emotional moment involving lots of waterworks. Recounting the engagement a month later, the 41-year-old admitted they both cried during the proposal, moving everyone who witnessed the big moment to tears as well.
THEIR GRAND WEDDING
Emily Blunt and John Krasinski remained engaged for almost a year before finally taking their relationship to the altar. They exchanged vows on July 10, 2010, in a private ceremony in Como, Italy.
John Krasinski’s wife looked ravishing in her custom Marchesa wedding dress, giving off the unmistaken aura of a happy bride.
THE JOYS OF PARENTHOOD
Four years after their wedding, Emily Blunt and John Krasinski became first time parents, welcoming their daughter, Hazel Krasinski. The proud father shared the news on Twitter, revealing how happy he and his wife felt to welcome their new bundle of joy.
Two years later, the duo became parents again, welcoming their second daughter, Violet Krasinski. They announced her birth on July 4th, 2016, two weeks after her arrival.
“A QUIET PLACE”
In 2018, the couple embarked on their first project together, releasing “A Quiet Place” in April. They carried out several press tours as partners to promote their movie and ended up as the December cover couple of The Hollywood Reporter.
Blunt snagged the Screen Actors’ Guild Award in January 2019 for her outstanding performance in the movie.
LOVELY QUOTES BY KRASINSKI AND BLUNT
Over the years, Blunt and Krasinski have seamlessly pursued their careers and nurtured a family while upholding their relationship. While at it, the twosome has proven themselves as the ultimate relationship goals with some powerful quotes.
One of their cute yet power-packed quotes was from a 2020 interview, where Blunt went candid about life amid the pandemic. She shared:
“We watched “The Crown” in three days, and then we were bereft. That’s the other thing about the pandemic: how lost and broken you feel once your favorite show has ended. Like, what should I do with my life now?”
In the same interview, Emily blunt admitted her husband’s support was everything, as they were each other’s confidant. Krasinski also thinks highly of his wife, who he regards as a tremendous actress and an incredible partner.
The filmmaker once recounted the moment he realized his wife also possessed extraordinary singing prowess. Describing her vocal abilities, which she displayed on “Mary Poppins Returns,” he gushed:
“It’s so honest and so pure and so powerful. It’s like a superpower that she can just unlock and do so specifically with not many attempts.”
It’s not surprising to have the father of two speak so adorably of his wife. Admittedly, he believes her to be one of the coolest people in the world and way out of his league. Can they get any cuter?
NOTHING TO HOLD BACK
Like their beautiful quotes, this lovely couple has held back little when spilling details about their relationship. From their cute first meeting to the lame first date and eventually improving their sex life, nothing seems off-limits.
The two have been open about how they run their marriage and family life. Blunt once revealed despite having lots of wrapped-up moments; they allowed each other to have a “very full” life outside their relationship.
Additionally, Krasinski once revealed his wife instigated their joint performance on “A Quiet Place” by requesting him to cast her in the role. The moment felt like a proposal, and he was more than glad to offer his resounding Yes! Not like he had a choice, though.
While accepting her 2019 SAG Award, the 38-year-old thanked her husband for giving her the opportunity. She then joked that he would have ended up in trouble if he hadn’t.
As for the secret of their relationship success, Krasinski attributes it to supporting each other and understanding what their jobs entailed. More importantly, coming back home and being together took precedence over all else.
AMY SCHUMMER’S OVERSTEP
Following the release of “A Quiet Place II” in 2021, the adorable couple again became the subject on everyone’s lips. Amy Schumer’s love for the couple and their joint movie performance drove her to throw a subtle shade at them.
Taking to Instagram, the stand-up comedian admitted the lovebirds blew her away with their performance on “A Quiet Place.”
Going further, she encouraged everyone to see the movie even though she always thought Blunt and Kravinski’ had a pretend marriage intended for publicity.
In response, the director fired back with light humor, taking to the comment section to thank Schumer for “blowing up our whole marriage spot.”
Schumer’s shade only served to garner more fans for the lovebirds, who are priming up to mark their eleventh anniversary over the summer. One can’t help but love these Hollywood sweethearts!
