John Krasinski & Emily Blunt are fighting over babies & wedding plans


Two weeks ago, John Krasinski and British actress Emily Blunt announced their engagement through a short and sweet confirmation by John’s rep to People Magazine. Since then, they’ve been keeping quiet. No gushing tell-all interviews to Us Weekly, no well-timed photo ops of the two of them looking lovey-dovey shopping for furniture. The only major thing to happen was a brief, fleeting glimpse of Emily’s engagement ring as she was accosted by paparazzi and fans outside of LAX one week ago. From the picture People had, it looks like John got her a nice-sized diamond, maybe three carats or so, probably either round or rose-cut.

Unfortunately for all of us who like to pretend John is our imaginary boyfriend, it seems John and Emily have just been fighting up a storm since getting engaged. This is according to the Enquirer - the tabloid claims John and Emily’s fights are of the “oh, that’s so cute, we’re fighting about flowers!” variety. At least, that’s how it seems to me:

John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are already fighting – over the wedding date!

Emily… wants a year to plan a splashy event, but John wants to get married no later than February, pals say.

“John doesn’t want to wait,” an insider on the set of The Office told The Enquirer. “But Emily wants time to plan the wedding of her dreams. Right now, they’re clashing.”

One of the main reasons John is pushing to marry quickly is because he’s anxious to be a dad, revealed a friend. “He wants to start a family right away… he adores children. And he wants Emily to get pregnant as soon as possible.”

Added the pal: “They’re excited about getting engaged, but they’re trying to work out some kind of compromise on the timing of the wedding.”

Meh. I would be willing to bet that John Krasinski is the kind of guy who would be happy no matter how, when or where Emily wanted to get married. But I do think he probably does want to be a dad, and soon. My first thought when I heard of their engagement was “I wonder if she’s knocked up?” It wouldn’t be a big deal if she was – there’s nothing wrong with a shotgun marriage, after all. But if she is knocked up, or if John is making it his top priority, my guess is the wedding will be sooner rather than later.

    Oh blah blah BLAH. I’m sure a lot of couples go back and forth about the date. I felt the same way about my wedding – I wanted a year, he wanted 6 months and we settled in the middle. I’m sure they aren’t even fighting, just trying to get it perfect. Silly media.

    He is absolutely adorable! I hope Emily treats him well… He is a dream to watch on “The Office.” He is what I imagine when I think of a soul-mate… funny, quirky and cute. I hope he is happy… I really feel his character, Jim is really a part of who he is… He is awesome. Ms. Blunt seems a tad bitchy… I hope not! I want to see a Jim and Pam type marriage here… Stupid, i know, but he’s so wonderful as Jim, I wish them well…
