A source told Life & Style magazine that Emily, 35, and John, 39, are all about adding another child to their family. “Emily put off getting pregnant to film Mary Poppins Returns, but now that’s over,” the source said. “They both want another baby, hopefully, a boy, a little brother for Hazel and Violet to dote on.” Emily and John already have two daughters, four-year-old Hazel and two-year-old Violet, so if they are aiming to have another kid as the report says, it would make sense for the pair to hope for a boy.
And perhaps John and Emily will get their wish as everything has been going their way this year. Not only did Emily and John have a massive hit with their film A Quiet Place, but Emily is set to have another huge success when Mary Poppins Returns is released on Dec. 19. In fact, not only has John already seen Emily’s portrayal of Mary Poppins, but it actually hit him right in the feels.
“The first time I saw it, they give you a tissue box in the screening room, and I thought, ‘Oh, that’s very nice. I don’t have a cold,’” the actor told Ellen DeGeneres last month. “And they started screening the movie and 25 minutes into the movie, I stood up and went to the back of the room.”
“Emily said, ‘Do you not like it? I’ve never seen this happen?’” John continued, adding, “I was pushing through all of the muffins and bagels that were in the back looking for napkins. I was like, ‘I need anything to stop this crying!’ I was crying so much I blew through the tissue box in 20 minutes, had to go to the napkins, and then when I ran out of napkins it was all sweater.”
Well, now John knows how we felt while watching The Office finale.
