Ah, first pregnancy. The yoga classes, green juices and bump meditation classes. We have to be honest – we tried it all.

But the second time around? How on earth do you find the time?!

And that’s exactly what Emily Blunt found.

“The first pregnancy is the most self-indulgent thing in the world because you get massages and prenatal yoga and hypnotherapy CDs,” she told C Magazine.

The 33-year-old is married to actor John Krasinski (Jim in the American-version of The Office) and gave birth to their first child, daughter Hazel, in 2014.

She’s now pregnant with their second.

“During this one I forget that I’m even pregnant. I’m hoisting my 2-year-old around!” she said.

Just 6 weeks ago the mum of 1 finished filming The Girl on the Train ­– based on the bestselling book. Emily plays the protagonist Rachel Watson which she found demanding, especially while pregnant.

“It was actually more physical than I realised, which worried me a little, but I wasn’t telling anyone until a little later on,” she said.

“I told a couple of people like [co-star] Justin Theroux pretty early because he and I were doing some of the physical stuff together. He’s my friend, and I think he knew anyway – you know how friends just have a feeling.”

So second pregnancy – less fuss?
