Speaking to OK! magazine, Emily shared: "We've always been able to talk and discuss everything together.

"It's an advantage having someone who understands your profession. We also try to be very supportive of each other and we know that we always have each other to rely on and make each other feel very loved and appreciated. It's a beautiful thing."

Emily also hailed her husband's parenting skills, revealing he's helped her to balance the demands of parenthood and her acting career.

The London-born star explained: "He's a very good father and that's been a great source of comfort to me.

"It's not easy pursuing a Hollywood career when raising young children. He's great at making sure there are always fresh bottles of milk and fresh food in the house. Just those little things make such a big difference."

Meanwhile, Emily recently explained that her children's happiness is the "most paramount thing" in her life.

She said: "My children's happiness, their safety and their well-being is the most paramount thing in my life. And if [I am] unable to give them any of those things, then who am I? What's my identity?

"My greatest hope is that they are truly happy, and that they're interested in life, in anything. Interested and interesting, and truly happy."

And John revealed he wants to "protect" his children at all costs.

He added: "Even when [we] drop our four-year-old daughter off at school, you don't know what she's gonna do that day.

"You don't know if other kids are gonna be nice to her or if she [will get] in trouble for something. You just want to protect them at all costs."
