Emily Blunt on Breast-Feeding: 'My Boobs Thought I Had 12 Children'

Emily Blunt stops by Ellen, talks about breast-feeding

Emily Blunt made her first talk show appearance in what feels like forever on Wednesday, when she stopped by "Ellen" to promote her new movie, "The Edge of Tomorrow."

While she was there, she chatted about life as a new mom ... and also divulged just a little too much information about what happened to her body after pregnancy. Well, specifically, her boobs.

It all started when Ellen told her how amazing she looked for just giving birth three months ago. (Blunt gave birth to her first baby with husband John Krasinski back in February. Her name is Hazel and she is adorable; you can catch the first glimpse of her here.)

"I found breast-feeding to be 'the thing,'" Blunt said of her admittedly awesome post-pregnancy bod. "My boobs also thought I had 12 children," she added.

But she doesn't just end it right there.

"I remember the morning the milk came in," she continued. "It was like something out of a horror movie. It was like 3 a.m. in the morning and John woke up to me creeping towards the bathroom. He goes, 'What's wrong?' and I go, 'It hurts.' And he goes, 'What?' And I go, 'THESE!'"

"I could've been the wet nurse in medieval times," she quipped. "I could've fed the village while they all went to work."

Oh, Emily. We dig your candor.

You can watch the whole interview below. (And please do, because it gets even better.)
