With her ex she collaborated on the cover of Me and Mrs. Jones on their album Call me irresponsible and they shared a house in Vancouver. In July 2008, after 3 years, they ended their relationship due to “incompatibility of schedules” .
In November 2008, Blunt began dating American actor John Krasinski. The couple got engaged in August 2009 and married on July 10, 2010, in Como, Italy.
In September 2013, it was announced that Blunt and Krasinski were expecting their first child. On February 16, 2014, the couple’s first daughter, Hazel, was born. The news was confirmed by the actor through the social network, Twitter.

Professional Life of Emily Blunt:
While still a student, Blunt made her professional debut in the musical written by Paul Sellar, Bliss, which was presented at the Edinburgh Fringe festival in 2000.
She later participated in The Royal Family, a play with Judi Dench in the production of Sir Peter Hall. Critically acclaimed for her performance she was named “Best New Artist” by The Evening Standard.
Emily played the role of Eugenie in Nicholas Wright’s Vincent in Brixton at the National Theater, and the role of Juliet in Indhu Rubasingham’s production of Romeo and Juliet at the Chichester Festival Theater, both in 2002.
In 2003, Blunt first made her screen debut in the British television drama Boudica, which chronicled the life of that ancient warrior queen who fought against the Romans. That year the actress received praise for her portrayal of Queen Catherine Howard in the two-part British television movie Henry VIII.
The role that catapulted Blunt’s career was that of Tamsin in the dark 2004 British film My Summer of Love, which tells a story of disappointment and lesbian love in the English countryside. She shared the Evening Standard British Film Award with her co-star, Natalie Press, in the Most Promising Rookie category.
In 2005, Blunt starred alongside Bill Nighy and Miranda Richardson in the British television drama series Gideon’s Daughter, where she played the tormented only child of Dr. Gideon Warner, played by veteran actor Bill Nighy.
The drama featured an original script written and directed by Stephen Poliakoff. For her performance, the actress won a Golden Globe Award in the category of the best-supporting actress in a series, miniseries, or telefilm.
A year later, she accompanied Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway in the hit film, The Devil Wears Prada. The actress played the self-centered and calculating secretary Emily Charlton. Though critics focused mostly on Streep and Hathaway in the beginning, Blunt proved just as memorable when Entertainment Weekly magazine named her “best female scene stealer” in its special late-summer issue.
In February 2007, she and Hathaway attended the Oscars to present the award for best costume design. Also in 2006, she participated with Susan Sarandon in the independent drama, Irresistible.
The film is directed and written by Ann Turner and the main cast is completed by the actors Sam Neill, Wiliam McInnes, and Georgie Parker among others.
When Sarandon confirmed her participation in another film, The girl in the park, she suggested to director David Auburn that he audition Blunt, but the role went to Kate Bosworth.
