John Krasinski Confesses to Love at First Sight with Wife Emily Blunt
By Krista Wick
Newlywed John Krasinski stopped by "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" to promote his new film 'Something Borrowed,' and ended up letting loose about how quickly he fell in love, and ultimately proposed to his wife, actress Emily Blunt.
John admits to Ellen that the romance caught him by surprise, saying "It's one of those things where as soon as you meet someone you kind of know," explaining that he "wasn't really looking for a relationship and I was thinking I'm going to take my time in LA and everything. Then I met her and I was so nervous. I was like, oh god I think I'm going to fall in love with her. As I shook her hand I went, 'I like you.'"
When it came time to propose, John says he had to do it "real fast" before she could realize she could "have anybody" she wanted, adding that his method of proposing was to slip the ring on her finger without explanation. Of course, she said "yes."
