Speaking to chat show host Ellen Degeneres, the Devil Wears Prada actress revealed that she was surprised by the amount of milk her body started producing.

She said on The Ellen Show: ‘My boobs also thought I had 12 children… I remember the morning the milk came in.’

‘Everyone was sort of warning me that it was going to happen… It was like 3 in the morning and (husband) John (Krasinski) woke up to me it was like something out of a horror movie.’

Not shy of going into more detail. Emily continued: ‘Two enormous heads…veiny heads. So, I found that because I managed to produce a lot of milk I don't know why it helped me lose the weight.’
