Gulliver’s Travels star Emily Blunt definitely wants to be a mommy someday, but unlike her own mother, who gave up acting to have a family, the 27-year-old actress wants to remain completely focused on her career for the time being.
“I come from a big family and I’ve always wanted children, but not quite yet,” she explained. “Yes, mum gave up her career, but it’s a different age now.”
I’m lucky in that, hopefully, I will have established myself more than my mum was able to before she had children. I think it will be easier for me. But, honestly, I don’t know what I’m going to feel until it happens.
Despite not being ready to have her own children just yet, the British actress says she wishes she could see her own family more often: “I miss being able to nip out and see a play with mum, or meet my dad after work. That was always fun; he’d come out of court and we’d go for a drink.”
“I’ve been nomadic for some time, so I’m accustomed to being away,” she added. “But I still miss everybody.”
Emily recently married The Office’s John Krasinski after dating for nearly two-years. The couple met in 2008 when they were introduced by Emily’s The Devil Wears Prada costar, Anne Hathaway.
