Emily Blunt: Parenting ‘Is Such A Fear-Based Industry’ — Here’s Why

Actress Emily Blunt recently opened up about her views on parenting during an interview with online magazine, The Edit.

The 31-year-old award-winning actress, and married mother of one explained her laid back approach to parenting and the reasons for it.

“[Raising children] is such a fear-based industry. There used to be one book that everyone read, now there’s How to Raise a Gluten-Free Baby, How to Raise a Scientific Baby… It’s insanity! So I haven’t read anything. I’m just letting her do her own thing!”

Emily Blunt and husband John Krasinski welcomed their first child together, Hazel, into the world back in February of this year.

It did not take very long for The Office actor, John Krasinski, to formally announce his newborn daughter’s arrival into the world through his official Twitter profile on behalf of himself and his wife.

During the interview with The Edit, Emily Blunt also had a chance to talk about the awkward timing of her pregnancy when it came to her receiving a role in the highly-anticipated movie, Into the Woods.

According to People, Blunt revealed that she found out that she received the role of The Baker’s Wife in Into the Woods during the same week that she found out she was expecting her first child.

Fortunately, Emily felt that her role was a perfect match for her — especially since she was pregnant and had to conceal a growing baby bump while filming her part.

“In a way, the part was the only one in Hollywood I could still have done, because it didn’t matter if I was a bit big – The Baker’s Wife eats a lot of buns! But by the end of the shoot, I was about seven months and hiding behind every tree in the woods.”

An inside source revealed to Us Weekly that it was a “difficult” experience for Emily Blunt to be pregnant during the filming of the movie, especially since she and her husband were separated for such an extended period of time. However, John reportedly went above and beyond to make things as easy as possible for his wife throughout the whole process — including finishing the nursery and baby-proofing their home.

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski first started dating in 2008. The couple became engaged nearly one year later in August of 2009 and were married the following year in July of 2010.
