Is Emily Blunt married? 

Emily Blunt is married to actor John Kransinski, and they met back in 2008. The iconic Hollywood duo got married in 2010 and even starred in a movie, A Quiet Place together.

In an interview with Parade in December 2022, The Office actor spoke adoringly about his wife, Emily: “I wouldn’t be anywhere in my life without her. 

“On a daily basis – but certainly career-wise – as a dad, she pushes me to be better every single day at everything I do. 

“I look forward to the next day ‘cause I know it’ll be better than the one before.”

In 2013, the Girl on the Train star Emily was featured on May’s cover of InStyle, where she opened up about the importance of being able to rely on your other half. 

She said: “Meeting John really changed my life. When I feel the support that I have from him, I feel invincible. There’s someone behind you on your good days and someone in front of you on your bad days.”

The couple had their 10th anniversary in the first worldwide lockdown in 2020. Emily spoke to People and said having their children around them made a huge difference. 

She went on to say: “Being around little ones during the pandemic was such a saving grace because they would just be bouncing around the house, and your job is to protect them from what is happening and make sure their life remains joyful.”
