John Krasinski? and ?Emily Blunt?? are expecting again. Blunt’s publicists, Bebe Lerner and Lindsey Tillotson, have confirmed to Us Weekly that the Sicario actress is pregnant and expecting her second child with her husband, John Krasinski.

There was speculation surrounding the possibility that Emily may be pregnant again, she appeared to have a small bump at the premiere of John’s latest movie, the Michael Bay-directed 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi on January 12 in Dallas, Texas. Blunt is currently filming The Girl on the Train, an adaption of Paula Hawkins’ bestselling novel, and was spotted on set in New York City wearing an oversized coat last week, on January 20. It seems that the actress may have been trying to hide her baby bump, leaving it to her publicists to reveal the news.
John Krasinski? is currently in the middle of promotion for his film The Hollars, which he directed, at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. Filming initially began only two months after Hazel was born in 2014. The actor spoke with the Daily Beast recently about how his perspective on life changed after he and Emily had their daughter. The Office actor makes it clear that after meeting Emily Blunt, John Krasinski’s life did nothing but get better.
“I’ll be really honest with you, I was never the coolest kid on the block, so I never had the ‘good ol’ days’ of a playboy type of lifestyle. My good ol’ days were entirely different. So for me, the best days of my life started when I met my wife—that’s the truth, it’s not just me saying it because it sounds nice on a card. She’s one of the coolest people, she’s so talented, she’s beautiful, and she’s certainly out of my league. And so all of a sudden all of the things I loved, I got to find someone who loved that about me. There was a lot of my life that she hadn’t experienced and a lot of her life that I hadn’t experienced, so all of a sudden we got to start doing things that we liked.”

John Krasinski? and ?Emily Blunt?? are very much in love, but recent comments from Krasinski’s former Office co-star Jenna Fischer have caused some fans of the show to think that Jim and Pam were really in love off-screen. Fischer said that the relationship between Jim Halpert and Pam Beesly seemed so genuine was because of the chemistry she had with Krasinski. The actress made an appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live and said “there’s a real part of me that is Pam and a real part of him that’s Jim, and those parts of us were genuinely in love with one another.”
John simply said that the statement was “wildly misquoted or taken out of context.”
“I’m sure she was trying to say something nice about how genuine the acting relationship was, of bringing a relationship that became that popular onscreen—and I think we both feel it’s such an honor to be a part of that relationship,” he said.

Jenna Fischer has two children with her husband, screenwriter Lee Kirk. And soon, actors John Krasinski? and ?Emily Blunt?? will have a family of four, as well. Krasinski appeared on Ellen and revealed that his daughter sometimes speaks with a British accent, like her mother. The actor may witness the same cute experience with Hazel’s younger sibling.
“When you’re lucky enough to meet your one person then life takes a turn for the best,” John said of his wife Emily. “It can’t get better than that.”
