Lens for both portrait photos/video interviews?

Hey everybody,

I have the XT3 and have been looking to get my first prime lens which I would use for both portraits and video interviews.  I'm about to have 2 nieces and a nephew born within 5 days and wanted to do some newborn pictures, and just to have a lens for family get togethers.

I also do a little video work (been using the 18-55), but I'm looking to get something to give shallower DOF.  I was thinking either the 35 f2 or f1.4 but have also read the 56 f1.2 is a fantastic lens (might be too long for interviews if shooting in a small space?). I am open other suggestions if someone has more experience in this field.

Thanks
