Emily Blunt earned an Academy Award nomination for Oppenheimer for her portrayal of Kitty Oppenheimer, wife of atomic bomb inventor Robert Oppenheimer and a scientist in her own right. In real life, Blunt also has a spouse in her same industry, though it's a much less deadly one. She's been married to The Office star John Krasinski since 2010. Read on to find out all about their tight family.

How Emily Blunt found love with John Krasinski

The two actors didn't find love in any particularly Hollywood way. As Blunt told Seth Meyers, "It’s kind of a...lame story."

"I was in a restaurant. He was in the restaurant. I was sitting with a mutual friend. And my friend Gray goes, 'Oh my god, there’s my friend, John,'" she explained. "[Krasinski] was actually sitting with our friend Justin Theroux...He abandoned Justin...He did not eat, he just stood there and made me laugh." From there, they dated, and eventually married.

The Hollywood power couple shares two girls, both named after plants that are also colors. Hazel was born in 2014, and Violet followed in 2016. The couple have kept their girls mostly out of the limelight, and according to Blunt, the feeling is mutual. Hazel and Violet weren't impressed by any of their movie star parents' successes...until Blunt got to work with Ken, a.k.a. Ryan Gosling.

"They’re so happy. They have never had any interest in anyone I’ve worked with ever," she told TODAY's Willie Geist in January 2024. "They know a lot of people I’ve worked with. But Ryan is — Ryan’s it for them." Having loved him in Barbie, the girls had a lot of questions for their mom about her The Fall Guy co-star. "They were, like, 'What does he look like when he has normal hair?...And so I had to be, like, 'This is what he normally looks like.' It’s so funny," she said. 

Emily Blunt is related to Stanley Tucci by marriage

Blunt's sister, Felicity, is married to her The Devil Wears Prada co-star Stanley Tucci.

"I was afraid to get into a relationship and I kept trying to break it off," Tucci later said on a podcast, per Entertainment Tonight. "I'm 21 years older than she is, and I didn't want to feel old for the rest of my life. But I knew that this was an incredibly special person." They tied the knot in 2012, with Steve Buscemi serving as Tucci's best man.

"Felicity has been so incredible taking on a widower and three children whose mother died," Tucci added. (His first wife, Kate, passed away in 2009.) "That's a huge thing, at a very young age too. If anybody made things better for all of us, it's her. She's the one."
