It seems the timing is perfect for Emma, who told Elle in 2018 that she was set on settling down in her early 30s. The Oscar-winning star explained: "My perspective about kids has changed as I’ve gotten older. I never babysat or anything. As a teenager, I was like, I’m never getting married, I’m never having kids. And then I got older and I was like, I really want to get married, I really want to have kids."

Emma continued: "It’s weird how much turning 30 crystallizes your life. Instead of just living the dreams that I had in my youth and getting to do the job that I love to do and making friends and going through all of that, it’s like, '[Now what do I actively want as an adult?'"
