John Krasinski and Emily Blunt’s adorable relationship started over a decade ago. The two actors began seeing each other in 2008. And even after all this time, they can’t stop singing each other’s praises. Even people who work with the couple, can’t help but fall in love with them.
Their A Quiet Place co-star Noah Jupe called John and Emily “the craziest, coolest couple.”
“They’re the craziest, coolest couple you’ll ever meet,” the teenager told Us Weekly. “They’re very into games and jokes. There were a lot of inside jokes on the set, which is fun!”
The couple is known to be secretive about their personal life. Neither Krasinski or Blunt share pictures of their children on Instagram. But from time to time, they open up about their relationship.
In 2011, John sat down with Ellen DeGeneres to discuss the first time he met Emily.
“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.’ As I shook her hand I went, ‘I like you,’” he admitted to the talk show host.
John continued, “I was like, I’m going to propose to her real fast before she wakes and was like, ‘What am I doing? I can have anybody.'”
According to The Office star, the couple’s chemistry was strong right off the bat.
Krasinski isn’t the only one to admit love at first sight. Blunt shared a similar experience.
When Emily first met John, she was sitting with a friend discussing how great it was being single. And then, the Jack Ryan star walked in.
“We were discussing how much I was enjoying being single. And then my friend goes, ‘Oh, my God, there’s my friend John.’ And that was it,” she said in an episode of The Jess Cagle Interview. “We were engaged within 10 months, but I think we probably knew before that.”
When you know you know, right?
The couple got engaged in 2009 and were married a year later in a private ceremony. Four years after their wedding, they became parents to a baby girl named Hazel. Two years later, in 2016, they gave birth to another daughter named Violet.
The couple maintained their careers over the years and in 2018, they decided to work on a project together.
A Quiet Place premiered in August 2018. In the movie, Emily and John played husband and wife. John also co-wrote and directed the movie, which received critical acclaim.
And although some celebrity couples avoid working together, Krasinski said it was “the best experience” of his life.
“She’s unbelievable. The most talented, powerful… kindest person. She makes everyone around her better. So honestly, that was my experience…the best experience ever,” he told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.
The couple had such a great time filming the movie they decided to star in A Quiet Place II together. The movie was set to be released on March 8, 2020. But has since been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
