She opened up to a US magazine about breastfeeding and how that affected her normal life after giving birth.

“After we got home from the hospital, I didn’t shower for a week, and then John and I were like, ‘Let’s go out for dinner,’ ” she says. “I could last only about an hour because my boobs were exploding. When the milk first comes in, it’s like a tsunami. But we went, just to prove to ourselves that we could feel normal for a second.”

But she also said that it has been quite a change with another child in the picture.

“When there was just one kid, somebody would get to sit down. Now nobody gets a break,” she says. “But John is the most unbelievable daddy. He prioritises Hazel so she doesn’t miss me too much because I’ve been so consumed with the baby.”

But it hasn’t only affected her and John – Hazel is also having to deal with having a little sister! 

“There have been no physical attacks or suffocations,” Blunt joked of Hazel. “She fluctuates between complete disinterest and moments of sheer passion.”
