Another Blunt/Krasinski baby is on the way! Earlier today, a rep for the lovebird actors, who’ve been married since 2010, confirmed to PEOPLE that Blunt is pregnant with the couple’s second child. The new baby will join big sister Hazel, who will turn two next month.
We can’t help but notice how timely this exciting news is, considering Krasinksi told PEOPLE in a story posted just yesterday about all the great ways being a dad to Hazel has (adorably) changed him.
“I went through some really serious stuff,” Krasinski shared with PEOPLE, adding that the reason he was able to put so much passion into his new movie, The Hollars – a story involving a man with an eight-months-pregnant girlfriend, and which is currently receiving glowing reviews at the Sundance Film Festival – is because of the months leading up to when he began filming, in which he learned so much and grew greatly as a person through newly-appointed fatherhood. “There is a mirror that is held up to me now. You have someone watching you. You have to lead by example.” Krasinski also noted that becoming a father made him understand and appreciate his own parents, and Blunt, so much more.
As far as Blunt is concerned, motherhood is basically the greatest thing ever. “It’s heaven,” she told PEOPLE back in December 2014, but she also made sure to note that it definitely isn’t easy. “You don’t know what to expect because it’s just completely, existentially out of anything that you’ve ever experienced before, and it’s quite indescribable.”
Blunt has also shared in the past that she prefers a less study-in-advance approach to parenting, and that “[Raising children] is such a fear-based industry. There used to be one book that everyone read, now there’s How to Raise a Gluten-free Baby, How to Raise a Scientific Baby…It’s insanity! So I haven’t read anything, I’m just letting [Hazel] do her own thing.”
We’re so stoked for this family of three to become a family of four, and wonder if Krasinski will pass on any of his signature Jim Halpert pranks to Hazel to use on her new sibling. For the littlest Blunt/Krasinski’s sake, we hope Hazel will leave the pranks to her dad. Dwight Schrute might be out of the picture since The Office isn’t on the air anymore (sob), but there’s always Jimmy Kimmel.
