The Devil Wears Prada star and Krasinski started dating in November 2008 and were married in 2010 at a ceremony in Italy. Blunt told The Times in April 2012: "I feel like everyone poo-poos actor relationships because they say they always end in divorce and tears.But that's only because it's in the news and it's broadcast to the world. John and I can talk about everything, and it's nice, because we have a very deep understanding of what the other person does."

Blunt had also spoken about the couple's desire to start a family. She told Manhattan magazine in May 2012: "We want to have children; I just don't know when yet. I'm just not sure about the timing of all of that. We're both from big families so I think it's something we want."
