Emily Blunt on becoming a mother

In 2014, Emily Blunt became a mother for the first time when she gave birth to her daughter Hazel.
Then in 2016, she gave birth to her second child, Violet, something she and her husband, John Krasinski, are 100 percent thrilled about.
“We are both massively hands-on, and we love it,” she shared in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar. “I’m so lucky with John.” Having children also inspired Blunt to move to New York from Los Angeles so they could be in a city environment, where she appreciates being left alone from the public more often.
Becoming a mother has been a huge change for Blunt, who found herself with a whole new set of priorities now that she has children. “I was colossally unprepared for how life-changing it is,” she continued. “Like all mothers, I think, ‘What was I doing with my day before I had children?’ It’s so full-on and they need you so much; I do find myself in a perpetual state of distraction.” Sounds about right!
