Emily Blunt and John Krasinski are one of Hollywood's most adored couples.
The famous pair are the brains behind the incredible A Quiet Place franchise and are talented stars in their own right, too.
British-born Emily, 38, has gone from strength to strength in her career since playing Emily in the 2006 film The Devil Wears Prada, landing the role of Mary Poppins in the 2018 reboot and the protagonist in the 2016 thriller Girl on the Train.
Meanwhile, John, 42, is most known for playing sitcom heartthrob Jim Halpert in the US version of The Office and starred as Jack Ryan in the popular Amazon TV series of the same name.

But their sweet love story is the biggest reason why fans are so obsessed with John and Emily.
How they met - 2008
John and Emily first crossed paths in November 2008 in an adorable meet-cute fit for a romantic comedy.
The Jungle Cruise actress told Late Night in 2018 she was having dinner with a mutual friend when John approached her table.
"I was in a restaurant. He was in the restaurant. I was sitting with a mutual friend… [He] was actually sitting with our friend Justin Theroux, and then he abandoned Justin and came over to come and talk to us," she recalled.

"He did not eat. He just stood there and made me laugh."
In 2019, John told E!News he was already a big fan of Emily before they began dating.
"I was a huge fan of hers before I even met her, so I continue to be a huge fan of hers in everything she does," he admitted.
John also once confessed to watching Emily in The Devil Wears Prada a staggering 72 times, "give or take", while speaking on The Graham Norton Show.
The couple's first date was a strange one — they went to a gun range. John said he chose the unusual location because he was so nervous he would "blow" it with Emily.
"On our first date, I decided, 'I'm gonna really hit the gas and bring her to a gun range. I think that I was so sure that I would never end up with her ... that I was like, 'You know what, I'm gonna blow it right away and then that way you don't feel bad," he told Conan O'Brien in 2021.
Engaged after a year – 2009
After less than a year of dating, John popped the question in a "casual" proposal in Los Angeles. Recalling the sweet moment, John said it was a tearful occasion when Emily said yes.
"She did cry after I cried and we cried and then everyone around us was crying. Then, I think people weren't really sure what was going on, but they were crying because we were crying," John told Access Online in 2009.
"But it was great. At the end of the day she said yes, which is great. It's a big part of this whole thing."
"It was very casual," John added. "I was nervous and the whole nine yards."
Wedding at Lake Como – 2010
John and Emily married at a beautiful ceremony in Italy's Lake Como on July 20, 2010.
The private event took place at George Clooney's Italian estate and Emily wore a stunning Marchesa wedding gown for her big day.
Clooney and his then-girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis were among the famous guests at the wedding.
Recalling the nuptials to James Corden on The Late Late Show, Emily said she wouldn't change a thing — except for her dodgy spray tan.
"I got a bad spray tan and I would probably change that," she laughed.
"I look at the pictures and it just has an orange hue that is unnatural to normal skin colour. Why was I on a budget on my wedding day? It was a bit patchy. It stinks! And it was a very hot day so if you sweat and you have a spray tan — wearing white. Just seeping orange. It was terrible."https://www.instagram.com/p/BP3c6zcFm0o/

Hazel is born – 2014
On February 16, 2014, John and Emily welcomed their first child together: a daughter named Hazel Grace.
The couple took to parenthood like ducks to water, and frequently speak about their love for their children.
Speaking to People in 2018, John said the "scariest thing" about being a father was not always being there with your kids.
"Even when [we] drop our four-year-old daughter off at school, you don't know what she's gonna do that day. You don't know if other kids are gonna be nice to her or if she [will get] in trouble for something. You just want to protect them at all costs," he said.
Emily also spoke about her children in the same interview, admitting she just wants them to be happy.
"My greatest hope is that they are truly happy, and that they're interested in life, in anything. Interested and interesting, and truly happy," she said.https://twitter.com/johnkrasinski/status/466245487968808960
Violet is born – 2016
Two years after welcoming their first daughter Hazel, John and Emily announced the arrival of their second-born, Violet.
Now a father-of-two, John admitted parenthood had irrevocably changed his life.
"I think the biggest question I have is, what did I do with my life before this? What did I do with all the time that I had on my hands? I think it's certainly a full-on job, and something that I enjoy so much, but I really do look back and think, was I just the dude who ate potato chips and movies all day?" he told HuffPost in 2017.
"I think having kids totally changes your perception of family and where you're from. I think you realise first and foremost how it's really hard to be a great parent and you're just trying.
"There's no perfection. There's no school. There's no defined way to go about it; you're just learning.
A Quiet Place premieres – 2018
A Quiet Place, the long-awaited collaboration between John and Emily, finally premiered in April 2018. The couple co-wrote, directed and starred in the horror film, where they played a husband-and-wife duo.
The film received several major accolades, including a Screen Actors Guild award for Emily.
Emily used her acceptance speech to gush about working with her husband John and praised his work on the film.
"I am going to share this completely with my husband, John Krasinski, because the entire experience of doing this with you has completely pierced my heart directly," Emily said on stage.
"You are a stunning filmmaker. I am so lucky to be with you and to have done this film with you."
A Quiet Place 2 premieres – 2020
Following the success of the first instalment, Emily and John joined forces again for the sequel to A Quiet Place in 2020.
The couple initially turned down the opportunity to make a second movie, John revealed last year.
"I had no intention of doing a sequel because I didn't think that I could come up with anything as organic as the first one was to me and certainly nothing as personal as the first one was to me," John told The Hollywood Reporter.
"And so when the studio came to me and asked if I'd do a second one, I said no. As an audience member, I'm wary of sequels. I just didn't want it to feel like a cash grab from the studio and all those things, so I just opted out.https://www.instagram.com/p/BK_OX4IDgMm/
"But I had one tiny idea in my head, and when I realized that I could do this, it was because it was organic."
The film reached $297.4 million at the box office and was another success for the husband and wife team.
12 years of marriage
John and Emily are still reeling from the success of their A Quiet Place instalments and are busy raising their daughters Hazel, seven, and Violet, five.
The couple will mark 12 years of marriage in 2022 — so what's their secret after all these years?
"Just love," Emily told E! News. "You've got to keep loving and loving, and just listening."
