In 2009, Stanley Tucci lost his wife of 14 years, Kathryn, to breast cancer. He moved on in 2010 when he met Felicity Blunt, the sister of his The Devil Wears Prada co-star Emily Blunt, but the actor has admitted that Kathryn's death still affects his second marriage.

"It was very hard to go on vacations at first, really hard to go with Felicity someplace," he told the Times.

"I felt guilty. It’s horrible. You always feel guilty."

Stanley now lives in the suburbs of London with Felicity, his three teenage children and new-born son Matteo, but he added of the potential jealousy in the relationship, saying: "There are photographs (of Kathryn) around at home.

"Not that many, but I would have difficulty. And especially when we first met it was only two years after Kate died. So…"

Stanley and Felicity, a literary agent, met in 2010 at the wedding of Emily and John Krasinski. The pair hit it off, and became engaged in 2011 during a holiday to Berlin, Germany.

"I panicked instantly afterwards," he admitted.

The Hunger Games actor Stanley and Felicity exchanged vows in a private ceremony in 2012, but decided to celebrate their marriage with a group of friends a few weeks later.

Acting as best man was Boardwalk Empire star Steve Buscemi and bridesmaids included Emily, her youngest sister Suzie and friend Amy Dixon. Celebrity guests included Meryl Streep, Julianne Moore, Ewan McGregor, and Colin Firth.

Two years later they welcomed baby Matteo, with Stanley saying at the time of the announcement: "I'm very excited to be a dad. It's incredible.

"I'm most excited to have a baby with Felicity and for the baby to be healthy."

Asked what sort of mother he thought Felicity would be, he sweetly replied, "A great one!"
