Emily & John Krasinski Expecting First Child

September 24

Emily and husband John Krasinski have recently announced that they are expecting their first child! US Weekly have reported the below. Big congratulations to Emily & John.

Guess who’s the latest Hollywood starlet with a bun in the oven? Emily Blunt and husband John Krasinski are set to welcome a tiny bundle of joy in just a few months’ time, a rep for the actress confirms to Us Weekly.

The couple, who tied the knot in a star-studded ceremony in Italy in 2010, have never been shy about their desire for children, and have been making moves to ready themselves for parenthood, a source tells Us.

“They both want kids, it’s one of the reasons they got a bigger place, in a neighborhood that you can raise a family,” the source explained. “They both couldn’t be more excited.”

In an interview with Manhattan magazine last year, the 30-year-old British actress opened up about their hope to start a family.

“We want to have children; I just don’t know when yet,” the Devil Wears Prada star told the magazine. “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.”

A few months later, Krasinski, 33, told Matt Lauer on the Today show that he has been getting a taste of fatherhood from his pals who are already dads, like Matt Damon, with whom he was working at the time on the film Promised Land.

“We actually wrote with children climbing all over him, and he was doing bath time and dinner and everything, and we still got it done,” the former Office star said at the time.

Emily in Talks to Join Disney’s ‘Into the Woods’

May 17

Variety – Emily Blunt is finalizing a deal to join Disney’s musical “Into the Woods” that Rob Marshall will direct for the studio.

Chris Pine and Jake Gyllenhaal also are in talks to join the film, which already has lined up Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep.

Film is based on Stephen Sondheim’s 1987 Broadway musical. David Krane (“Chicago,” “Nine”) is the arranger on the film, which will rely on Sondheim’s original music.

Musical revolves around a childless baker and his wife who attempt to lift a family curse by journeying into the woods to confront the witch that put the spell on them. Along the way, they encounter Rapunzel, Cinderella, “Jack and the Beanstalk’s” Jack Little Red Riding Hood and other classic fairy tale characters.

Blunt would play the baker’s wife, the female lead in the film.

There is no production start date yet for the project, but with such a strong cast coming together a greenlight is imminent.

James Lapine penned the script, based on his book for the musical.

John DeLuca, who previously produced Marshall’s “Chicago” and “Nine,” will serve as producer on “Into the Woods.”

Disney declined to comment.

Blunt, who recently wrapped Doug Liman’s sci-fi actioner “All You Need Is Kill,” with Tom Cruise, that Warner Bros. will release next year, is repped by CAA and Ken McReddie Associates.
