How Many Children Do John Krasinski and Emily Blunt Have Together?
Audiences fell in love with Jim and Pam’s romance on the American version of the long-running series The Office.

Krasinski and wife Emily Blunt have been together for nearly a decade, and their marriage is every bit as adorable and celebrated as Jim and Pam’s.
Emily Blunt says the first time she met John Krasinski was ‘kind of lame’
A story that involves Krasinski, Blunt, Justin Theroux, and love, at first sight, is anything but lame to us. Blunt’s definition of lame is a little different than ours, however. When asked how she and Krasinski first met, the British beauty told Seth Meyers it was a “sad, lame story.”
“I was in a restaurant. He was in the restaurant. I was sitting with a mutual friend,” the actress recalled during an appearance on The Late Show. “And my friend, Gray, goes, ‘Oh, my God. There’s my friend, John.’ And that was it.” But that wasn’t it. “He was actually sitting with our friend, Justin Theroux,” the actress revealed. “And then he abandoned Justin and came over to come and talk to us. He did not eat. He just stood there and made me laugh,” Blunt said.
Blunt told Meyers that she was aware of Krasinski’s role in The Office at the time. However, she had only seen the British version of the series. She confessed to Meyers that she binge-watched the American version of The Office after meeting Krasinski, who she knew right away was The One.
Where did John Krasinski take Emily Blunt for their first date?
Krasinski was so intimidated by Blunt’s beauty that he was scared to approach her in the restaurant where they first met. The intimidation carried over to the couple’s first date, which Krasinski admittedly tried to sabotage, thinking he didn’t stand a chance. Rather than choosing a fun location for the first date, Krasinski took Blunt to a shooting range instead!
“On our first date, I decided ‘I’m going to really hit the gas and bring her to a gun range,'” the actor told Conan O’Brien in 2012. “I think I was so sure that I would never end up with her, because she’d be like, ‘This is ridiculous. I can have anyone, not you’ that I was like ‘You know what? I’m going to blow it right away and, that way, you don’t feel bad.'”
As we all know, their first date was much more successful than Krasinski could have ever imagined. Krasinski proposed to Blunt in August 2009 while the couple was on a European vacation, after nearly a year of dating. Blunt and Krasinski got married in a private ceremony at George Clooney’s estate in Como, Italy on July 10, 2010.

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski both have famous exes
Blunt and Krasinski accumulated a handful of famous exes before finding each other. For Krasinski, one of those former flames happened to be his The Office co-star. When celebrity exes have to work together, things can get awkward fast. We wonder if the set of The Office was awkward after their 2007 breakup.
Blunt began dating singer Michael Buble in 2005 after she met him backstage after one of his concerts. The Canadian crooner even wrote the song “Everything” about the actress. The couple split in 2008 amid rumors that Buble had been unfaithful.
Fans weren’t the only ones to draw inspiration from The Office‘s romances. Krasinski dated The Office co-star Rashida Jones from 2006 to 2007. After he and Jones broke up, he was rumored to have briefly dated actress Renee Zellweger. Reports of the short-lived romance were never confirmed.
