Emily Blunt’s ‘Sneak Attack’ Trick Got Her Co-Habitating With John Krasinski

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski are one of the most adorable couples in Hollywood. Their longtime love affair is an inspiration to many, and proof positive that happy marriages can exist in the tumultuous entertainment industry.

Neither Blunt nor Krasinski take themselves too seriously and are always game for poking fun at themselves. Recently, Blunt opened up about the early days of her relationship with Krasinski and the “sneak attack” way that she ended up moving in with him.

How did John Krasinski and Emily Blunt first meet?

It all started in 2008 when Krasinski first met Blunt through a mutual friend. Reportedly, the couple met at a restaurant in Los Angeles and right away, Krasinski knew that Blunt was the girl for him.

As Krasinski later recalled: “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. 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.'” 

The two started dating and in August 2009, Krasinski proposed to Blunt in super-emotional fashion. They got married nearly a year later, at their friend George Clooney’s fabulous Italian estate.

Although Blunt and Krasinski are both Hollywood superstars, they prefer to keep things low-key in their personal lives and don’t share a lot of their lives to social media. Still, they aren’t shy about sharing funny anecdotes about each other when prompted.

Recently, Blunt talked about the period of time after she and Krasinski first started dating. The actress revealed that she had just purchased a home in London and was planning on making it her home base and didn’t really envision a move to the United States in her future.

That all changed after she and Krasinski started to get serious. Blunt stated that “gradually more and more of my stuff just accumulated at his house, and then suddenly I was living in L.A. I think it’s the best way to do it – just to sneak-attack them, rather than turn up with trunks.”

Clearly, her “sneak attack” method worked, because they became one of Hollywood’s greatest success stories. In a world of scandal-filled headlines, Blunt and Krasinski have managed to steer clear of all that controversy and create a happy, peaceful life for themselves.

They even received critical accolades after collaborating on the hit horror film A Quiet Place

How many kids do Emily Blunt and John Krasinski have?

Krasinski and Blunt didn’t wait long after their wedding to start a family of their own. In late 2013, it was revealed that Blunt was pregnant with their first child. She gave birth to their daughter, Hazel Grace, in February 2014.

Several years later, in the summer of 2016, Blunt and Krasinski welcomed a second child, a daughter whom they named Violet. As to whether they might have any more children in the future, the jury is out, but for now, it seems as though they are happy with their two young daughters.

These days, Krasinski and Blunt are together and better than ever, as they prepare to release the highly-anticipated sequel to A Quiet Place. Now married for nearly ten years (an eternity by Hollywood standards), Blunt and Krasinski have truly defied the odds.

There’s little doubt that serendipity struck when they first crossed paths in 2008 and although they have undoubtedly gone through their share of trying times, theirs is one of the great love stories in the entertainment industry.
