From raising two children to starring in A Quiet Place together, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt have a thriving relationship that serves as an inspiration to everyone. In an interview with Parade on December 21, 2022, The Office actor spoke candidly about his marriage to Blunt. “I wouldn’t be anywhere in my life without her,” he admits. “On a daily basis—but certainly career-wise—as a dad, she pushes my 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.”

Throughout their 12 years of marriage, the Jack Ryan star and the Devil Wear’s Prada actress have been open about their love for one another. In an interview with Today in December of 2016, Krasinski gushed about how lucky he is to have Blunt as his wife. "I wake up every morning with a smile on my face, waiting for the next amazing moment that she'll have with the kids,” he shares. “I’m living a lottery ticket life. My wife is my hero in every single way. Truly, every single day I'm blown away by her, so I'm always looking to her for inspiration." 

The love is mutual. In 2013, after three years of marriage, Blunt opened up about the profound impact her husband had on her. “Meeting John really changed my life,” she told InStyle. “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.” 

Krasinski agreed that his life significantly improved after the two met by chance at a restaurant in November of 2008. “The best days of my life started when I met my wife,” he says. “That’s the truth. It’s not just me saying it because it sounds nice on a card. She’s one of the coolest people. She’s so talented, she’s beautiful, and she’s certainly out of my league.”

Two years after they met, the pair said “I do” in Lake Como on July 10, 2010. Since then, they've welcomed two daughters, Hazel Grace and Violet, into the world. Throughout their relationship, the couple has continuously supported one another during their careers. The Something Borrowed actor told Vanity Fair in January of 2018 that he is Blunt’s number one fan. “The air changes in the room when she starts doing what she does,” he gushed. “It's so honest and so pure and so powerful. It's like a superpower that she can just unlock and do so specifically with not many attempts. For me, I love acting, and I'm so lucky to be doing it, but she's on another plane."
