Couple goals! Emily Blunt turned 36 on February 23, and it was a great reminder that she and her husband, John Krasinski, are endgame. They are one of Hollywood’s sweetest couples and are constantly gushing about their love for each other. The duo have been married for nine years and share two daughters, Hazel and Violet. Keep scrolling to see John’s sweetest quotes about his wife!
If that wasn’t enough to warm your cold, dead heart, he also added, “I’m living a lottery ticket life. My wife is my hero in every single way. Truly, every single day I’m blown away by her, so I’m always looking to her for inspiration.”
The actor was literally brought to tears the first time he heard his wife’s beautiful singing voice. “I came to visit and they were doing the pre-records on Into The Woods. And I remember [director] Rob Marshall turning to me and he said, ‘It’s so great,’ and I said, ‘Yeah, I’ve never seen her sing.’ Rob Marshall did the slowest double take of all time,” he recalled to ET. “And then, [he] queued a 125-piece orchestra and she started singing and I just wept.”
“They started screening the movie and 25 minutes into the movie, I stood up and went to the back of the room,” The Office actor told Ellen DeGeneres when explaining the first time he saw his wife in Mary Poppins. “I was crying so much I blew through the tissue box in 20 minutes, had to go to the napkins, and then when I ran out of napkins it was all sweater.”
“She’s one of the coolest people, she’s so talented, she’s beautiful, and she’s certainly out of my league,” the Hollywood hunk admitted. “And so all of a sudden all of the things I loved, I got to find someone who loved that about me. There was a lot of my life that she hadn’t experienced and a lot of her life that I hadn’t experienced, so all of a sudden we got to start doing things that we liked.”
He didn’t have the smoothest moves when they were first introduced. John told Stephen Colbert that his pickup line was just his jaw hitting the floor. “When I met her, I was so nervous. Everyone was like, ‘What was your line?’ and it was just this …”
The newly-minted director decided to have a little fun and give himself and Emily a celebrity couple name on Instagram. What did he come up with? The Krunts. We’re laughing, but he should probably head back to the drawing board.
“Gotta be honest … finding it VERY hard to contain my excitement that my incredible wife is hosting SNL with the one and only [Bruno Mars]!!!” John wrote on Instagram before The Devil Wears Prada star hosted the sketch show in 2016.
During the SCAD Film Festival in 2018, John divulged his favorite movies of Emily’s. Not surprisingly, Sicario, Girl on the Train and Devil Wears Prada were listed. He was sure to add, “There’s nothing she can’t do.”
