Emily Blunt and John Krasinski seem to have a picture-perfect marriage.

The Hollywood couple, who welcomed a daughter this year, are enjoying their newest role, being parents.

Blunt, who stars opposite Tom Cruise in Edge of Tomorrow, said this about her husband:

He is the greatest dad. She loves him, just loves him.

Let’s take a look at the happy couple and their adorable love story.


1. She Said Marriage is an ‘Effing Blast’

The couple started dating in November of 2008 and were already engaged by August of the following year.

When John popped the question, that cued waterworks on both their parts. He told Access Hollywood:

She did cry after I cried and we cried and then everyone around us was crying. Then, I think people weren’t really sure what was going on, but they were crying because we were crying. But it was great. At the end of the day she said yes which is great. It’s a big part of this whole thing.

The two are still very much in love. In a 2012 interview with Modern Day Manhattan, Blunt gushed about life with her husband:

This is what I find difficult about talking about my marriage: It’s hard to sum up something that’s so vital and means everything to you in a sound bite. Do you know what I mean? All I can say is that it’s an effing blast. It’s just great, and I’m so happy.


2. They Have Hazel and Plan for More

When their daughter was born in February , the couple was immediately smitten.

Blunt said, “John and I spend a lot of time going, ‘Isn’t she cute? Oh my God, look at her, she’s so cute.’”

There will be more babies in the future for the new parents.
“I’m from a big family and John is one of three so I think we definitely would,” she told the Telegraph.

3. John Wasn’t Looking for a Relationship When They Met

“It was one of those things where I wasn’t really looking for a relationship and I was thinking I’m going to take my time in L.A.,” he told Ellen in the clip above.

Of course, that all changed after their initial meeting:

Then I met her and I was so nervous. I was like, ‘Oh God, I think I’m going to fall in love with her.’ As I shook her hand I went, ‘I like you.’

The feeling is mutual. Blunt told In Style, “Meeting John really changed my life. When I feel the support that I have from him, I feel invincible.”


4. Their First Date Was at a Gun Range


Krasinski didn’t think it would ever work out with her because he felt that Blunt could get any man she wanted.

He was so nervous about their first date, that he planned a very unique one.

In the video above, he told Conan:

On our first date, I decided, ‘I’m gonna really hit the gas and bring her to a gun range.’ I think that I was so sure that I would never end up with her…that I was like, ‘You know what, I’m gonna blow it right away and then that way you don’t feel bad.

5. They Double Date With Celebs

The pair has a lot of celebrity couple friends who they are frequently spotted with.

In March, they were photographed leaving Kazu Sushi with George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin.

They also lived near Jimmy Kimmel and his wife, Molly McNearney.

In 2011, they took a trip with the talk show host and his then girlfriend to Hawaii. The foursome was photographed surfing together.

The couples became so close, that they’ve even pranked each on multiple occasions.

In the video below, Kimmel shows viewers the elaborate Christmas gag he pulled off on the Blunt/Krasinski household.
