People: Emily Blunt & John Krasinski are engaged


ARGH! I’m going to go light a candle, pour myself a drink and have a good weep. Because my imaginary boyfriend John Krasinski is now totally off the market. People Magazine has confirmed with John Krasinski’s rep that John and British actress Emily Blunt are officially engaged. Sob. Wail. Emily and John have been dating since November of 2008 (although I thought it had been longer). John has previously dated Rashida Jones (daughter of Quincy) and Emily has previously dated Canadian crooner Michael Buble. Need I say it? It’s the real deal if People Magazine is confirming it:

John Krasinski and Emily Blunt will soon be husband and wife.

The Office star, 29, and actress, 26, who have been dating since November 2008, are engaged, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

“We can confirm that John and Emily are engaged,” says the rep.

Who wants to join me for a drink? I mean… a toast. Right. Why am I so sad? Is it because John has that quality that makes it seem like any girl has a chance? I will give him some credit – he seems to go for the nice girls. Emily seems like a very nice girl – yes, a bit of a potty-mouth (who isn’t?) but generally she seems funny, sweet, intelligent and talented.

Back in May, there were a couple of rumors that John was cheating on Emily with his It’s Complicated costar Lake Bell, but not many people believed it. He just doesn’t seem to have a douchey vein in his body. Sigh. Nice to see they still make boys like that. John will be seen next in the new season of The Office, starting in late September, and then he’s got the Christmas release of It’s Complicated, an ensemble romantic comedy (with Meryl Streep!). Emily will next be seen in The Young Victoria (as the young Queen of England) in November and some weird looking film called Wild Target (with Bill Nighy!). Congratulations to the happy couple.

Here are Emily and John in April. Images thanks to BauerGriffinOnline.

    I love them each individually and as a couple they are too cute for words. This seems like a well rounded mutually healthy hollywood relationship. Congrats!!!!

    I liked her in The Devil wears Prada, but I can’t help but hate her now for taking away John’s single status.

    Now I can’t pretend that she’ll cheat on him, he’ll come to a random Miami beach, find me there & fall in love with me and marry me, and we’d have beautiful latino polish babies

    Damn. :) They look great together though! Something though that has always bothered me about Emily Blunt, is the fact that the distance between the bottom of her nose to the top of her lip is too much. Like her mouth was an afterthought.
