Stanley Tucci and his wife Felicity Blunt have been together for over a decade.

The couple met at the premiere of his movie The Devil Wears Prada, while Tucci was married to his first wife Kate Tucci.

Tucci and Kate were married from 1995 until her death in 2009. The following year, the Julie & Julia star met Blunt again at a wedding in Italy. What followed was a secret marriage in 2012, a large wedding ceremony later that year, the births of their two children and a lot of adventures in life and food.

The pair have gone on to author a cookbook and film various projects together, including the early COVID-19 lockdown video that made Tucci the "internet's boyfriend."

But who is Felicity Blunt? Here's everything to know about Stanley Tucci's wife.

She's a literary agent

Blunt works as a literary agent at the U.K. talent agency Curtis Brown, representing authors and their books to publishing houses and production companies. "My fiction tastes are broad but are unified by my desire to represent unique stories and smart voices," she wrote on Curtis Brown's website. "What I want is to feel passionate about the narrative and believe absolutely in the world an author has crafted."

Blunt has worked with a handful of bestselling authors, including Danielle Steel, Ann Patchett and Jennifer Egan, and has secured deals for her authors' work to be developed into other formats. As she wrote on the website: "I like to work with all of my clients in the 360, helping to form a strategy that straddles not only the domestic and international sales of their books, but also the exploitation of their media rights."

She has a famous family

Tucci is not the only A-list star in the family. Blunt's sister is actress Emily Blunt, who stars in A Quiet Place and Mary Poppins Returns, among other blockbuster hits. The younger Blunt also happens to be married to The Office alum John Krasinski.

Blunt has been a supportive big sister over the years. In 2021, she tweeted a blooper reel featuring Emily (and Tucci) in The Devil Wears Prada. "15 years on ... ! Still funny," she wrote.

She met Tucci in two very memorable ways

Tucci and Blunt first met at the 2006 premiere of The Devil Wears Prada, in which he and Emily costarred alongside Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway. At the time, Tucci's then-wife Kate had been undergoing treatment for breast cancer and attended the premiere with her husband — and actually met Blunt at the event.

"[Felicity] and Kate talked at the premiere that night and I have a photo of them together, which is so odd," he told Marc Maron in 2021. Kate died in April 2009.

In 2010, Tucci and Blunt crossed paths again: this time at Emily's wedding to Krasinski at George Clooney's house in Lake Como, Italy. They started dating shortly afterward.

The Blunt family approves of Tucci, of course. "He's an all-around Renaissance man who knows the way to everyone's hearts. And it's through having a damn good time," Emily told PEOPLE in 2022. "He's frighteningly bright, quick to laugh, loves to be laughed at, charismatic, warm and energetic."

Tucci and Blunt had two weddings: a private ceremony in the summer of 2012 and a larger event in London on Sept. 29, 2012. At the second wedding, Emily was a bridesmaid and Steve Buscemi served as Tucci's best man. Celebrity guests included Streep, Patricia Clarkson, Julianne Moore, Colin Firth and Kenneth Cole.

The bride reportedly wore a custom gown by Nanette Lepore, while the groom wore a Hugo Boss tuxedo. In lieu of a traditional wedding cake, guests dined on a "cake" made of cheese wheels at the reception.

She is a mom

Tucci and Blunt are parents to son Matteo Oliver, born Jan. 25, 2015, and daughter Emilia Giovanna, born April 19, 2018. She's also a stepmom to Tucci's three kids from his first marriage: fraternal twins Nicolo and Isabel, as well as daughter Camilla.

The couple are fairly private when it comes to their family life and they have largely kept their children out of the spotlight.

She helped make her husband into the "internet's boyfriend"

In April 2020, during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, Tucci went viral for his bartending skills after Blunt filmed a video of him making her a negroni. His wildly popular videos made him, as Town & Country wrote, "the internet's boyfriend."

In 2021, Tucci spoke to PEOPLE about the unexpected enthusiasm for the videos. "[Blunt] said, 'Would you do a little cocktail thing, just for the Curtis Brown people? It would be fun, cheer people up.' So I did," he recalled. "And then she said, 'Well, maybe put it on your Instagram.' And then the world changed." He added that the couple enjoyed reading some of the "filthy, but funny" comments on the videos. "We laughed so hard, reading them out loud," he said.

She has shared the spotlight with her husband

Blunt appeared in three episodes of Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy, the CNN show that followed the actor as he traveled through Italy and sampled the local cuisine. The two also co-authored The Tucci Table: Cooking With Family and Friends, a cookbook that was published in 2014.

"I wanted to have all of these recipes down on paper," Tucci told PEOPLE of his earlier work, The Tucci Cookbook. "They were so influential in my life and one of the reasons I am who I am."

She was by Tucci's side when he was diagnosed with cancer

In 2021, Tucci revealed that he was diagnosed with oral cancer a few years prior. After doctors found a tumor at the base of his tongue, he underwent extensive chemotherapy and radiation. He later told PEOPLE that his wife's steadfast support throughout the experience is what kept him going. "Felicity's undying attention, affection and encouragement got me through it," he said.

On April 30, 2023, Tucci spoke about his cancer diagnosis and treatment during an appearance on NBC's Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist. He credited Felicity and her sister, Emily, with making him go through the "brutal" and "awful" sessions of high-dose radiation that ultimately saved his life.

"I was so afraid, but Felicity was very insistent," he recalled. "I mean, they had to drag me, kicking and screaming, but now, I wouldn't be around if I hadn't done that [treatment]."
