Baby No. 2 is on the way for Emily Blunt and John Krasinski.

The “Sicario” actress, 32, and the “13 Hours” star, 36, are expecting their second child, Blunt and Krasinski’s rep confirmed to the Los Angeles Times on Tuesday.

No word yet on how far along the British actress is, but she was photographed last week wearing an oversized coat on the set of her upcoming film “The Girl on the Train,” according to Us Weekly, which was first to report the news. Krasinski is at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah promoting his latest directorial project, “The Hollars.”

Blunt and the veteran of “The Office” already are parents to daughter Hazel, whom they welcomed in February 2014.

Four months later, the couple shared the first official photo of their daughter after various paparazzi images of the first-time parents were published.

“Pics of kids should only come direct from parents,” the new dad tweeted. “So I’m thrilled to introduce you guys to Hazel!!! #NoKidsPolicy”

The celebrity duo announced their engagement in August 2009 after dating since November 2008, then married in 2010 in Italy.


In a recent interview, Krasinski’s “Office” costar Jenna Fischer spoke fondly of him, saying that the onscreen couple was, in a way, “genuinely in love” while playing adorable duo Pam Beesly and Jim Halpert on NBC’s workplace mockumentary. When asked about Fischer’s remarks, Krasinski shut down fan excitement about their seeming office romance.

“I think that was wildly misquoted or taken out of context,” he told the Daily Beast. “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. As far as how she was quoted about saying we were ‘genuinely in love,’ I think that was taken wildly out of context, and I feel bad for her.”

(In context, what Fischer said was, “There’s like 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.”)

Krasinski gushed about his genuine love for his wife in a separate interview with the site, saying that he never had the “good ol’ days of a playboy” 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,” he said, adding, “When you’re lucky enough to meet your one person, then life takes a turn for the best. It can’t get better than that.”
