Emily Blunt’s daughter is “coming around” to the idea of having a sibling.
The 33-year-old actress is expecting her second child with husband John Krasinski. They already have a two-year-old, Hazel, and Emily admits it has taken some time for her to understand that their family will soon be expanding. “She’s coming around to the idea of it (the baby) now,” Emily told British television show This Morning. “She dismissed it wholeheartedly when I first brought it up and now she’s quite excited I think!”
Emily’s latest role sees her star as Freya in The Huntsman: Winter’s War. For the part, the actress was transformed with white hair, pale skin and an array of incredible costumes. However, when it came to Hazel visiting her on set, Emily laughed that the tot was not worried by her mother’s makeover.
“The thing that was strange was that she had no reaction whatsoever to me being in costume and full hair and make-up,” Emily said. “It’s just a Friday night for Hazel, it’s just how I dress on a Friday night I guess! “It was quite moving in a way because I think you realise that children don’t really see all of that (the hair and make-up). They just pick up on your essence and that you’re still their mother. She was just completely unfazed by it.”
British star Emily confirmed her second pregnancy back in January. Since then, she has been trying to take it easy as much as possible recently, but acknowledges that having a two-year-old is making this pregnancy a little more interesting than the first.
“It’s fine. I’m not working that much. I’m just doing a few days of press here and there, it’s really totally fine,” she shared. “And I think the first pregnancy you’re very self indulgent in some ways. It’s all about you and having naps and pre-natal yoga and all that stuff. And this time around it’s not really the same – you’re running around after a child that you already have…!”
