Felicity Blunt, the wife of Stanley Tucci, and he have been married for more than ten years.
While Tucci was still married to his first wife Kate Tucci, they first met at the movie premiere of his film The Devil Wears Prada.
From 1995 until her passing in 2009, Tucci and Kate were wed. The Julie & Julia actress reconnected with Blunt at an Italian wedding the following year. Thereafter, there was a covert union in 2012, a sizable nuptial celebration later that year, the birth of their two kids, and numerous culinary and life adventures.
Together, they have since written a cookbook and produced a number of films, including the early COVID-19 lockdown video that cemented Tucci’s status as the “internet’s boyfriend.”
Who is Felicity Blunt, though?
She’s a literary agent
At the U.K. talent agency Curtis Brown, Blunt represents authors and their novels to publishing houses and production companies in her capacity as a literary agent. She stated on Curtis Brown’s website, “My fiction tastes are varied, but they are all unified by my desire to represent original stories and sharp voices.” “What I want is to be enthralled by the story and have complete faith in the world an author has created.”
Danielle Steel, Ann Patchett, and Jennifer Egan are just a few of the bestselling authors Blunt has collaborated with. She has also negotiated rights for her authors’ work to be adapted into various forms. She stated this on her website: “I want to work with all of my clients in the 360, helping to build a strategy that covers not just one area of expertise but also
She has a famous family
The family includes other A-list celebrities besides Tucci. Emily Blunt, an actress who has appeared in Mary Poppins Returns and A Quiet Place, is Blunt’s sister. Additionally, the younger Blunt is wed to John Krasinski, a former cast member of The Office.
Over the years, Blunt has been a helpful big sister. She posted a blooper reel from The Devil Wears Prada in 2021 that featured Emily (and Tucci). “15 years later! Still hilarious,” she penned.
She met Tucci in two very memorable ways
The Devil Wears Prada premiere, where Tucci and Emily costarred alongside Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway, was when the two first became acquainted. Tucci’s then-wife Kate, who was receiving treatment for breast cancer at the time, went to the premiere with her husband and actually ran into Blunt there.
“[Felicity] and Kate talked at the premiere that night, and I have a photo of them together, which is so odd,” he said to Marc Maron in 2021. In April 2009, Kate passed away.
Tucci and Blunt reconnected in 2010 at George Clooney’s Italian lakeside estate for Emily Krasinski’s wedding to Blunt. Soon after that, they began dating.
Tucci is well-liked by the Blunt family, of course. “He’s a Renaissance
She and Tucci have a 21-year age gap
Tucci first found it difficult to date Blunt despite being 20 years older.
He stated, “I was afraid to get into a relationship and I kept trying to break it off,” in a July 2023 interview on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs. “I don’t want to feel old for the rest of my life, even if I’m 21 years older than she is! But I was aware that this person was extraordinarily unique.
Tucci continued, declaring with assurance that Blunt is “the one.”
She and Tucci got married in 2012
Tucci and Blunt were married twice: once privately in the summer of 2012 and once publicly on September 29, 2012, both in London. Emily was a bridesmaid in the second wedding, and Tucci’s best man was Steve Buscemi. Streep, Patricia Clarkson, Julianne Moore, Colin Firth, and Kenneth Cole were among the famous attendees.
According to reports, the groom donned a tuxedo from Hugo Boss, while the bride wore a couture gown by Nanette Lepore. At the reception, instead of the customary wedding cake, guests dined on a “cake” fashioned of cheese wheels.
She is a mom
Matteo Oliver, born on January 25, 2015, and Emilia Giovanna, born on April 19, 2018, are Tucci and Blunt’s children. Additionally, she is the stepmother of Camilla, Nicolo, and Isabel, the fraternal twins from Tucci’s first marriage.
When it comes to family matters, the couple is fairly private, and they have mainly kept their kids out of the public eye.
She helped make her husband into the “internet’s boyfriend”
After Blunt recorded a video of him mixing her a negroni in April 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic was just getting started, and Tucci quickly became known for his bartender prowess. According to Town & Country, his immensely successful videos made him “the internet’s boyfriend.”
Tucci talked to PEOPLE in 2021 about the unforeseen popularity of the videos. Would you prepare a small cocktail only for the Curtis Brown fans, Blunt asked? It would be enjoyable and uplift people. I did it, he recalled. “And after that, she suggested that I post it on Instagram. Then, the world was altered. He continued by saying that the pair found some of the “filthy, but funny” remarks on the films to be amusing. He remarked, “We read them out loud and laughed so hard.
She has shared the spotlight with her husband
Blunt participated in three episodes of the CNN series Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy, which followed the actor as he visited Italy and tried the cuisine there. Additionally, the two collaborated on the 2014 cookbook The Tucci Table: Cooking With Family and Friends.
Regarding his first publication, The Tucci Cookbook, Tucci told PEOPLE, “I wanted to have all of these recipes down on paper.” They had a huge impact on my life and are a big part of who I am.
She was by Tucci’s side when he was diagnosed with cancer
Tucci disclosed in 2021 that he had received an oral cancer diagnosis a few years earlier. He endured severe chemotherapy and radiation when a tumour at the base of his tongue was discovered by doctors. He later told PEOPLE that his wife’s unwavering support helped him get through the ordeal. He claimed that Felicity’s unwavering support and encouragement helped him get through the ordeal.
On April 30, 2023, Tucci appeared on NBC’s Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist and discussed his cancer diagnosis and treatment. He gave Felicity and Emily credit for forcing him to endure the “brutal” and “awful” high-dose radiation treatments that finally saved his life.
He recounted, “I was very terrified, but Felicity was so pushy. They had to drag, I guess
She and Tucci attended a Harry Styles concert
Tucci and Blunt went to see Harry Styles perform at Wembley Stadium in England in June 2023. The Simple On Instagram, a performer posted a video showing him and Blunt dancing happily to the song “Music for a Sushi Restaurant.”
