Emily Blunt “didn’t shower for a week” after having 2nd baby

The Girl On The Train star opens up about breastfeeding, baby names and more in a new interview...


It’s been a big year for actress Emily Blunt.


Not only is she hitting headlines as the star of the film adaptation of the best-selling book The Girl On The Train, but she welcomed her 2nd child, a baby girl named Violet, just 5 months ago.

The 33-year-old star openly talked about life with husband John Krasinski and their 2 children in a new interview with InStyle.

And the first thing she admitted is that it took some adjusting to having a newborn in the house again.

“After we got home from the hospital, I didn’t shower for a week,” she revealed. “And then John and I were like, ‘Let’s go out for dinner.’

“I could last only about an hour because my boobs were exploding. When the milk first comes in, it’s like a tsunami.

“But we went, just to prove to ourselves that we could feel normal for a second.”

Sounds familiar ?

And how is her eldest daughter, 2-year-old Hazel, handling the whole big sis thing?

“There have been no physical attacks or suffocations,” Emily joked. “She fluctuates between complete disinterest and moments of sheer passion.”

Perhaps that’s because she and John have been working as a team to make sure both kids feel their needs are being met.

“When there was just one kid, somebody would get to sit down. Now nobody gets a break.

“But John is the most unbelievable daddy. He prioritises Hazel so she doesn’t miss me too much because I’ve been so consumed with the baby.

“It’s a zoo!”

She also revealed why the names Hazel and Violet were top of her and husband John’s YES list – because they sound “antique”, and British.

“They sound like two little old ladies. They should be playing bridge or something,” Emily said.

One thing’s for sure… it’s definitely refreshing to hear an A-lister say things about motherhood we all know are true, but we still want to hear from other people.

Good to know we’re not alone ?
