If you can get through this video of Emily Blunt’s appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show without contracting a burning desire to be her best friend forever and ever, then congratulations. But I must ask what’s wrong with you, because she this lady is absolutely delightful. We already knew she and John Krasinski were an adorable couple, but I feel like I haven’t see enough of Emily in interviews to fully grasp her awesomeness. Now that I’ve seen her talk about breastfeeding, I’ve been slapped back to reality.
She of course first talks about little Hazel Krasinski and how adorable she is. And really, can we just emphasize once again what a cutie patootie that little baby is? Emily says she and John really like old lady names, and that just makes her even cuter to me. Speaking of old lady names, Mabel is another good one. That happens to be the name of the lady Emily met in the hospital recovery room who told her how cute her baby was. Hearing Emily put away her lovely British accent for a moment and impersonate Mabel will make your day.
One burping baby impression and a silly Tom Cruise story later, Emily finally gets around to the piece de resistance of the interview, which is her story about breastfeeding. Apparently her boobs thought she’d “had twelve children,” and when the milk started it was like a horror movie, which she generously recreates right there on Ellen’s stage. I can just imagine her standing up and telling that story at a party and everyone laughing, and I really want to be invited to that party so badly now. Talk about an underrated funny lady. I used to be jealous of her because she snagged John Krasinski, but to be honest now I’m just jealous of John.
