Justin baldoni and emily

Justin Baldoni is a happy man at the moment. His career as an actor is on the up but, that wasn’t the case about a decade ago. He had to turn his life around and, his wife, Emily Baldoni, was at the heart of it.

About eight years ago, Justin Baldoni’s acting career involved making cameo appearances on soap operas and films such as Spring Break Shark Attack and House Bunny. Justin had hit rock bottom but, he resolved to get back up by starting a documentary series known as My Last Days.

The series featured the stories of people with terminal illnesses living out their last days. My Last Days cemented his status as a top actor and producer in Hollywood. He founded WayFarer entertainment based on the success of My Last Days. He then landed the lead role of Rafael Solano in CW’s hit series Jane the Virgin.

Emily Baldoni served as Justin’s motivator and support during his period of transformation. He was able to count on her support and love during this time. Emily and Justin have formed a seemingly unbreakable bond over the years.

Emily Baldoni is not quite as famous as Justin, and so most people don’t know a lot about her. Keep reading to find out more about Emily Baldoni.

She had a dreamy wedding proposal

Most women dream of the perfect wedding proposal. Men, in turn, find over the top ways to fulfil their women’s desires.

Justin chose the Blu Jam Café as the scene of his proposal. Justin and Emily had their first date at this café, and that is why Justin chose that location. He lit some candles at the café to give it a more romantic feel.

When Emily got the café, she didn’t find Justin there. The staff ushered her to the allocated seat, and they brought a television monitor to her. Justin appeared on the screen and made it clear that he wanted to propose;

“I promise I’m not standing you up…Baby I love you so freaking much…I’m trying to propose. And you know, my mind being the way it is I could think of a million different ways that I want to do it. But all I know is that I want it to special and I want it to be romantic and I want to be something that you never forget.”

What followed was a montage of set pieces, mock movie appearances, and musical numbers intended to show how much Justin loved Emily. The montage also featured a scene where Justin visited her father’s gravesite to ask for Emily’s hand in marriage. There were hidden camera’s that showed Emily’s reactions to the video, and she seemed pretty overwhelmed.

Justin appeared after the montage ended, and he went down on bended knee to ask for Emily’s hand in marriage. Emily said yes, with tears streaming down her face in what was an emotional moment for the couple.

Justin made a video of the proposal, and it is available on YouTube. The couple released the video three months after their wedding after persistent pressure from friends. The video got a lot of mixed reactions. Some people thought that it was pretty romantic while some thought that it took too long. However, Emily and Justin didn’t care at all. They found love in each other and, that is all that mattered.

They got married on July 27, 2013

After the out this world proposal, Emily and Justin got married in July 2013 in what was a small and intimate ceremony. The couple shared some heartwarming vows which they had prepared beforehand. Emily vowed to Justin;

“I love you, truly, madly, deeply…Grateful to have a man who will go above and beyond to comfort a friend…I will stand firm by your side, deeply appreciative to have a man who inspires me and the people around him to live life more fully…Where there is love, nothing is too much trouble.”

Justin started his vows with by apologizing for his flaws. He then went on to say;

“With that apology also comes a promise…Emily for the rest of my life I will cherish you, appreciate you, I will listen to you, I will laugh with you, I will take care of you, I will honor you and I will respect you…Let’s jump in; together…Forever.”

It was a lovely moment for the couple in front of their friends and family. The couple is clearly in love, and it’s easy to tell from their social media pages. On 27th July 2019, Emily shared an Instagram photo of the couple celebrating their 6th wedding anniversary;

“Two kids. Just married. 6 years ago. I had no idea we would squeeze in so much in six years but here we are, a million adventures, two children, and many grey hairs later. I LOVE YOU @justinbaldoni. You are my favorite person ever.”

It has been a great six years for the happy couple. Justin doesn’t shy away from praising his wife. She is his love and support and, he isn’t afraid to show it. On July 27th, 2017, Justin shared a photo of the wedding on his Facebook page with the caption;

“The last four years have been the most amazing, challenging and beautiful years of my entire life and it’s all thanks to this amazing woman right here. @emilybaldoni – Thank you for loving me unconditionally sweetheart. You are the most genuine, kind, and patient human…”

She is the loving mother of two kids

Six years of marriage have yielded two kids for Emily and Justin. Emily gave birth to Maiya in 2015, and she delivered Maxwell in 2017.

Emily had a pretty uneventful birth. She almost came out in the elevator on the way to the delivery room. However, Maiya’s wasn’t as easy. She took 35 hours to get out, which involved 5 hours of Emily pushing. Emily and Justin also decided to have a home birth, which meant they didn’t use any drugs. Maxwell’s birth was easier, but it was also a home birth.

Emily enjoys a close relationship with her children. She has filled her social media pages with adorable photos of the children. On 10th June, Emily shared a photo of her children on Instagram with the caption;

“Seeing their love for each other grow may just be the most extraordinary and breathtaking thing I’ve ever seen…”

No one is more appreciative of Emily’s skills as a mother than Justin. On 28th June 2019, a day after Maiya’s fourth birthday, Justin shared an Instagram photo of his family on Instagram with the caption;

“Thank you for bringing our children into this world, for your daily sacrifice, and for teaching me so much every day about what it looks like to love unconditionally.”

Emily and Justin have busy schedules, but they share the responsibility of raising the kids. It is the reason why they are such a happy family.

She is an accomplished actor

Justin may be the famous actor in the family, but Emily can also pull her weight on screen. Emily played a leading role in the 2013 movie, Coherence. She also has appearances in several TV series including Reckless, Mob City, Castle, Rules of Engagement, Rizzoli & Isles, and many more.

She works for charity

Emily is a pretty selfless woman, and she is concerned with the world’s welfare. She regularly posts ways through which people can help others in the world. On 22nd September 2017, she used Instagram to encourage people to contribute to a Hurricane relief Fund organized by Blu Jam Café.

Her latest contribution to charity is linked to her role in the movie Five Feet Apart. She plays the role of Julie alongside Haley Lu Richardson and Cole Sprouse. The movie highlights the challenges of living with cystic fibrosis.

After the movie was released, the cast decided to influence people to donate towards cystic fibrosis research. On 19th March 2019, Emily posted a video on Instagram, showing various stars asking people to donate to cystic fibrosis research. She added the following caption to the video;

“…the reality of a terrible disease called #cysticfibrosis that effect approximately 70,000 people around the world. There is currently no cure for #cf, but the @cf_foundation is working to change that. You can help. Please Visit CFF.org to see how you can join the fight against CF.”

She is a feminist

Emily believes in the power of women. She believes that women should use their feminine power to push boundaries in society. Justin and Emily have decided to raise their family using feminist ideals. For instance, they let Maiya choose what she wants to wear.

They want to teach her how to grow up making her own choices. Feminism is important to Emily, and Justin is more than happy to support her.

About five years ago you came up with the idea called “Man Enough.” What inspired that?

It stemmed from conversations that I would have with guys in the locker room, where so many problems started and silence became complicity — and that eventually had to change. Right before Weinstein, I took this all over town. I told people, I really believe that masculinity is going to be something that we’re going to be talking about, and let’s have this conversation and be vulnerable with each other. And everyone kind of laughed at me. Nobody got it. So I funded the whole thing myself.

You’re open about your adoration of Emily on social media. Does that make you a Wife Guy?

I have issues where we start uplifting our wives because suddenly it’s cool. So I’m probably not the right person to ask about that. Movements are important because that’s how we reach the masses. But at the same time, I would love to see it being done quietly also. It’s one thing to do something publicly and to show a picture of your wife and how great she is, but it’s another thing to make sure you’re treating her that way in private.

Now that you’re primarily focused on directing, what kind of stories are you looking to tell?

I would say if a project makes me laugh and cry, it’s something that I’m going to be very interested in — specifically social justice and giving people opportunities to tell their stories that maybe haven’t had that chance because of myriad reasons, whether it be the color of their skin or the place that they’re from. Because I was one of those people that had the door slammed in my face over and over and over again when I was wanting to make content that made us feel good. And I believe that there’s a whole generation of people out there that are having that door slammed in their face. And I want them to know that my door is open.

Getting To Know Jane The Virgin’s Justin Baldoni

Let’s say something off the bat that most Jane the Virgin fans know in their bones: Justin Baldoni is a romantic. As Rafael Solano—the mercurial love interest on The CW’s addictive, postmodern, and passionate take on telenovelas, which just finished its third season—he has to be. But whatever amorous quality the 33-year-old actor and filmmaker conveys on the small screen is tripled in real life. This is more than evident to anyone who has seen him pop the question to his wife, the actress Emily Baldoni, in an epic 25-minute film that went viral (believe us when we say that every other proposal pales in comparison, including ones that use skywriting), or coo over his 2-year-old daughter on Instagram.
What they may not know is that this profound sense of romance is grounded in Baldoni’s faith and lifelong commitment to service. That’s what has helped him through what was at times a difficult childhood, plus career struggles that almost saw the one-time Everwood actor retire from acting altogether.
Baldoni sat down with Watch! to discuss those awkward years, how he found his calling and just how he manages to fit into Rafael’s suits, which have to be some of the tightest in prime time.
In the last three years, you got married, became a dad and landed Jane the Virgin. Is there anything in your life that hasn’t changed?
Yes and no. I didn’t just wake up and become successful, with a family and a part on a hit show. The last 10 years were really about figuring out who I am, what I want to say and why I’m here on Earth. In many ways, it felt very natural, like I was being prepared for all this. I mean that not in an egotistical way but an I’ve-laid-the-foundation way. I met my wife when I was broke and I had nothing. The next month, I randomly ended up on a hit TV show. I wasn’t looking for it; when I was looking for it, it never came. It somehow made sense that I got a show and found the woman of my dreams when I did.

What helped you persevere through those more challenging years?
My faith. I grew up in the Baha’i faith, which has a saying: “Always look for the end in the beginning.” What am I supposed to learn from this? That helps change the way I react when things are difficult.

Speaking of difficult, your family moved you from L.A. to Medford, Oregon, when you were a kid. That couldn’t have been easy.
It’s true. To be really frank, for many years, I was resentful.
Who wouldn’t be?
Well, I was a difficult kid. I wanted to do things my way. My parents worked their butts off and did everything they could to instill virtues into me, but it wasn’t working. So we moved to the country, where I grew up on a farm and didn’t have a lot of friends. I interacted with animals more than I did with people, and I was really angry about it for quite a while. In hindsight, it’s the best thing that could have happened to me. I got to experience a simpler life. When there are only a few people in a town and you disrespect one person, it has a ripple effect on everybody.
Did the move have an effect on your personality?
I went from being kind of a bully to moving to this small town and being bullied. That really checked my ego as an adolescent. It allowed me to see that I wasn’t the man.
How is it that you were bullied? Weren’t you a jock?
I was. I played soccer and made the varsity track and field team my freshman year. But what I remember most about it is when I came to school sophomore year, and I had my varsity letterman jacket, everyone made fun of me. Instead of fitting in, it was like, “Oh, yeah, you think you’re cool because you got a letterman jacket? Well, you didn’t make varsity in the soccer team.”
I also had very bad acne for a long time. At one point, I went on Accutane. I had a lot of confidence issues. I found that I fit in the most with the drama and dance kids—but I wasn’t in drama. I always envied the dancers. I was like, “Oh, I wish I could.” But I had spent my whole life as an athlete, so I had this identity crisis on my hands.
So how did you finally find acting?
We had a chance to interview people and study a profession that we were interested in. I loved music, so I interviewed a DJ at the local Top 40 radio station, which led to my first job. At 16 years old, I was doing overnights at a Top 40 station. By the time I was 17, I had my own show, creating characters and doing phone-ins and street teams. That’s how I realized I had this love for performing.
What was your most memorable moment as a Top 40 DJ?
When Aaliyah passed away. It was 1 a.m. I stopped the music, and I said a prayer for her on the radio. That moment was so profoundly impactful for me. I realized that whatever I was going to do with my life, I wanted to make sure that I had a platform where I was able to share my heart.

You had essentially retired from acting to make documentary films when you went to the Jane the Virgin audition on a lark. Why do you think you ended up with the part?
My gut tells me that it’s my vulnerability, a kind that you don’t normally find in men who look like Rafael. How can this guy who’s supposed to be this millionaire hotelier, who is good looking, wears these tight clothes and has everything he wants, also be vulnerable without being cheesy? I’m a lover. I’m romantic, but I’ve also been beaten down by this business a lot. Because of that, I have come to believe that it’s OK for a man to be vulnerable. It’s OK for a man to be open and authentic. That’s something I’m working on.

You mentioned his clothes: did they have to do any convincing to get you into Rafael’s skintight wardrobe?
Not at all. I wanted him that way. He’s trying to show people he’s on top of everything. I told Rachel , our costume designer, “I want everything to fit in a way where I almost can’t move, because that’s how he feels in his life.”
I am guessing you two don’t share those qualities.
I’m much more loose and casual—very casual. I am all about sweatpants and tennis shoes.
You’re also a lifelong teetotaler. How did you come to that decision?
Something happens when you grow up in a faith that teaches you the reasons why you’re not supposed to do something. My mom was always really good at explaining to me that God’s greatest gift to man are his faculties. It just never made sense to numb those abilities. That’s why as a Baha’i, I’ve ended up being a 33-year-old who has never been drunk. Let me tell you, my body is thankful.

Justin Baldoni Welcomes Son Maxwell Roland-Samuel

It’s a Baldoni baby boy!

Jane the Virgin star Justin Baldoni and his wife Emily are parents for a second time — to a son named Maxwell Roland-Samuel Baldoni, PEOPLE confirms exclusively. Born on Wednesday, Oct. 18, little Maxwell measured 21½ inches in length and weighed 8 lbs., 7 oz.

“Our little Maxwell Roland-Samuel Baldoni came into this world on Wednesday and showed us that it was possible for our hearts to double in size … again,” the couple tells PEOPLE exclusively. (They are also parents to 2-year-old daughter Maiya.)

“Maiya is so excited to have a baby brother and is already helping change his diapers and giving him tons of kisses,” add the new parents of two. “We want to thank everyone for all the love and prayers. We are so grateful.”

The 33-year-old actor announced in May that the couple would be adding to their brood, sharing a touching video featuring Maiya telling friends and family that she’s going to be a big sister.

“Baby Baldoni #2 is currently cooking in the most beautiful, thoughtful, kind, and compassionate oven on the planet @emilybaldoni,” Justin added. “With so much darkness in the world, there’s nothing like the announcement of brand new, pure and innocent life to bring joy to the hearts of the people we love so much.”

The spouses of four years shared exclusive photos from their son’s nursery with PEOPLE in early October, with Justin telling PEOPLE at the time, “The chaos of raising a family is filled with highs and lows and ups and downs, and it’s all about Emily and me coming together as a couple and as a family unit and figuring out how to do this.”

“Raising a child is a big responsibility — but it’s also awesome,” he explained.

And while Maiya is, according to her dad, “going to become an amazing big sister who is so nurturing and caring,” he and Emily told PEOPLE earlier this month that there are “some fears” about their shifting family dynamic.

“One is like, ‘How am I ever going to be able to love this little child as much as I love Maiya?’ ” Emily explained. “I know it’s a common fear and it’s very, very real.”

“As most parents say, your heart just expands and your love is there and you fall in love all over again,” she continued, “but before you experience that, there’s a fear of, ‘Oh my gosh, how am I going to fall in love with this little creature like I have with Maiya?’ “

Added Justin of the challenges, “I think it’s important to talk about because, generally, you read articles like this and it’s really cute — ‘Oh, we love our nursery’ and, ‘Oh, we’re really happy’ and, ‘Oh, life is beautiful‘ — but in reality, all of us are scared out of our minds, we’re stressed, things are crazy. We’re figuring this out like everybody else.”

“HE. IS. HERE!” the proud dad wrote. “Our little Maxwell Roland-Samuel Baldoni came into this world on Wednesday and showed us that it was possible for our hearts to double in size …again. We want to thank everyone for all the love and prayers. We are so grateful. So much more to come.”

Emily also shared the same birth announcement on social media beside a photo of the doting dad.

The happy couple are also parents to their 2-year-old daughter Maiya. When the pair revealed the gender of their second child on video, Justin was visibly moved to tears, and he posted a heartfelt letter to his future son on Instagram.

“Dear son, this was such a massively profound moment for us… and clearly it hit me hard,” he wrote. “But that’s ok, it’s nothing to be embarrassed about… in fact emotions are to be celebrated! Tears are good! It’s hard to explain, but I feel like my entire life has been about getting ready for this experience and yet at the same time I feel completely inept and not ready to be a dad again. I’ve learned so much and made so many mistakes and I continue to make them…EVERY DAY!”

The star also stated he hopes to teach his son that “part of being a man is embracing the parts of yourself that you might be ashamed or embarrassed of. And that eventually, the side of us that we want to hide from the world will be the side that our future life partner will love more than anything.”

“I want you to know that while confidence might be important for success, humility is necessary for happiness,” he continued. “I hope to show you over the course of your life, to not only respect women, but to stand up, and empower them in both large and small ways. When no one is watching and there’s no reward. To be a true friend to train your eyes like a superpower to see women as humans with souls before you see them as objects.”

“I can’t wait for you to see this one day and see all the reasons why your daddy was so excited you were going to be born into this crazy, dark, complicated world to a family that is going to love the s**t out of you,” Baldoni concluded in his letter. “I might not know you yet little guy, but I am already madly in love with you. I can’t wait to meet you and just know that I am only a few inches away and I’m praying for you every day.”

For more on the happy family, watch the video below.

  • Justin Baldoni, previously the co-star of Jane the Virgin, is now directing the movie Clouds.
  • He and his wife, Emily, are raising their two kids, Maiya Grace, 4, and Maxwell Roland-Samuel, 2, while trying to stay conscious of gender stereotypes.
  • Baldoni is a featured panelist at Good Housekeeping’s We Are Family Parenting Summit in New York City on September 26.

Justin Baldoni is a busy dad. Since Jane the Virgin wrapped in 2019, he’s already directed one movie — Five Feet Apart, starring Haley Lu Richardson and Cole Sprouse — and is currently working on his second. That one, Clouds, is similarly heart-tugging, telling the true story of a high school student who, after being diagnosed with a rare bone cancer, writes a song that goes viral on YouTube. Baldoni recently spent time in Montreal getting the production going.

“My favorite way to spend time with my family is without a phone or a computer between them and I,” he says. “It’s not as often as I’d like, but I’m working on it. That work-life balance thing is real.”

If it’s odd to hear a dad talking about work-life balance, it’s almost by design: Baldoni has made a point of examining the invisible ways that gender has affected his life, and is making more of a point to challenge them. “It wasn’t until I was in my 20s that I realized I was blindly following many of these unwritten rules most of my life — unwritten rules of masculinity as an example — and putting myself in a box that I was socialized into believing was of my own making,” he says. “My work has been to uncover the truth and figure out how I, as Justin, a human being, feel about the world around me, and how I can, from the most sincere place, operate in the world.”

That mission starts at home with his wife, Emily, and their two kids, Maiya Grace, 4, and Maxwell Roland-Samuel, 2. “A lot of that work comes from questioning things that were taught to us that we blindly follow,” he says. “When you become a parent, you realize just how ingrained it is. I love when my kids ask me ‘Why?’ because it gives me a chance to explain the core of an idea. Why? Why? Why? One is good, two is better, and if you ask three whys you will eventually get to the true soul of the real answer.”

And, if there isn’t a “Why” question to be answered, Baldoni offers a choice instead. That way, he can be sure that he isn’t pushing his kids in one direction or another based on these ingrained assumptions. “With Maiya, for example, we ask, ‘Do you want to wear a dress today? Or do you want to wear jeans or overalls?’ Now our daughter tends to go for the pinkest, prettiest dress she can find — and that’s okay. And for Maxwell, the other day he wanted to put on one of Maiya’s dresses, and that’s also absolutely fine. I have no problem with my son wearing his sister’s dress and having fun and dancing around in it. My job as his dad is making sure he knows that those little things don’t make him any less of a boy than other boys. Granted, he also wears blue and likes cars and trucks most of the time, but it’s important that he knows his parents love him no matter what he likes or wears.”

Justin Baldoni will speak as a featured panelist at Good Housekeeping’s We Are Family Parenting Summit, a daylong event with keynotes, panel discussions, Q&A sessions, and a product expo meant to connect parents to brands they love.

Language is important, too. “We let Maiya know every night that she’s strong and brave and remind Maxwell that he’s sweet and kind,” he says. “If I call my daughter sweetheart, then I need to call my son a sweetheart.”

The result, he hopes, is to raise kids to be conscious and understand that their gender doesn’t define who they are as people. “For us it’s just being aware,” he says. “It’s not perfect but we’re trying and that’s what matters. These are all just things you don’t really think about much — especially as a man — until you have kids and you start unpacking it in real time.”

Baldoni and Emily also try to support brands and causes that align with their values. Currently, they’re brand ambassadors for baby skincare line Pipette (which is also a sponsor of the Good Housekeeping’s We Are Family Parenting Summit). “Pipette quite honestly has the safest baby products we have ever used,” he says. “They ban over 2,000 potentially harmful ingredients, including synthetic fragrances. It seems like they’ve thought about everything, and the products are so much better, not just for kids’ skin, but for the environment; their packaging is sustainable and the products are vegan. It was kind of a dream partnership for us, and when we were getting to know them, we even went up to see the lab and met the badass women scientists who invented the products. They were able to tell us what and how they make each product and why they chose the ingredients they did — which by the way we can actually pronounce. I’ve never seen anything like it. The bummer is that I wish they would have been around when Maiya was younger.”

Second Child on the Way for Jane the Virgin Star Justin Baldoni

Justin Baldoni is going to be a father again!

The Jane the Virgin star, 33, announced on Friday that he and wife Emily Foxler Baldoni are expecting their second child in an adorable video posted on Instagram and YouTube.

In the 4-minute clip, the couple breaks the baby news to their family and friends, including Jane The Virgin costar Brett Dier and singer Andy Grammer, who is expecting his first child — a daughter! — with wife Aijia in July.

Along with the footage of reactions, Baldoni also captured sweet moments of 22-month-old daughter Maiya telling everyone she’s going to be a big sister.

“Baby Baldoni #2 is currently cooking in the most beautiful, thoughtful, kind, and compassionate oven on the planet @emilybaldoni. If you know me, then you know I LOVE surprises.. I mean, what can be better then making someone else smile?” Baldoni continued. “With so much darkness in the world, there’s nothing like the announcement of brand new, pure and innocent life to bring joy to the hearts of the people we love so much.”

Back in February 2015, the Baldonis, who wed in July 2013, shared the exciting news that they were going to be first-time parents with a short film, similar to their viral engagement video.

Stay tuned next week as the parents-to-be will release a part two video and reveal the baby’s sex!

Justin Baldoni is head-over-heels for his wife, Emily.

The Jane the Virgin star took to Instagram on Thursday to share how much he appreciates his lovely lady, who is pregnant with their second child, a boy, and promises to be more present in her last 10 weeks of pregnancy.

“I still can’t believe how fast this pregnancy has flown by,” the 33-year-old actor wrote alongside a pic of his wife showing off her growing baby bump in a bathing suit. “I often struggle with guilt around how busy these last seven months have been and how I have shown up for Emily and the little guy on this journey compared to her first pregnancy. With Maiya I was sooo present and aware of every little thing. But this time around it’s been a bit harder, and in many ways Emily has been on her own (and doing amazing).”

“Hoping to let go of that guilt and really show up these next ten weeks,” he continued. “It goes by so fast and this process is such a miracle. Men – take it from me….show up for your partners. If you fail (which inevitably you will) just listen and take it in. Ask how you can be better and then actually do something. Don’t just talk about it…do it. So much of the way we think about masculinity is about taking action- but we forget the most important action is showing up and taking steps to improve and become humans. And if we are better humans…we will become better men. #30weekspregnant #10weekstogo #redefinemasculinity #husband #bepresent.”

The day before, Baldoni also shared an adorable pic of the two snuggling up and laughing. “I LOVE little moments of gold like this,” he captioned the snap. “Our hats blocked our kiss but instead gave us this way better picture.”
