“If they can remain oblivious for the longest time I’d be thrilled,” she said.

The couple is well known in the industry and is especially loved by the fans for her roles in Devil Wears Prada and Edge of Tomorrow and Krasinski is widely known for his role as Jim Halpert in the US version of The Office.

However, hiding their identity as famous celebrities is not as easy as they imagined it to be as the pair nearly got caught once by their eldest daughter's friends' direct questions.

“It’s a strange thing to navigate, you know,” she explained.

“[She] came home the other day and we were in the kitchen and she goes, ‘Are you famous?’.”

“And I’d never heard her... We’ve never said that word in our house,” she added. “We don’t talk about it.

“Someone at school had clearly said it. I was like, ‘Um ... not really, I don’t think I am. Did someone say that to you, Haze?’

“She said, ‘Yeah’, but then she wouldn’t divulge much more, you know, but it’s weird. It’s weird.”

Explaining the reason behind this decision of their family, Blunt shared that it is because they do not want their kids to “feel any more important or special or [feel like] there’s a glare on them any more than other kids.”

Though it seems like it will be difficult to hide their identity for long as kids grow up fast and are also quick to catch up on things, not to ignore the fact that A Quiet Place II comes out this week which Krasinski has directed and Blunt also stars in.

It was originally supposed to be released last year but was delayed due to the pandemic, it was then going to be released in September 2021.

The movie finally got released on May 28, 2021, and earned a gross of $93.1 million at the box office.
