John Krasinski's date nights with Emily

John Krasinski's date nights with Emily

John Krasinski and Emily Blunt have one date night a week.

The couple raise two daughters together - Hazel, two, and two-month-old Violet - and while they love being parents, the 36-year-old actor says it's important to make time for themselves.

He said: "If we aren't working, we're at home with the kids. We raise our kids, and we're very important and present in our kids' lives.

"But at the end of the day, it's important to preserve your relationship. It's really fun because I have an amazing wife who also will go out on dates on me. We do one date a week at least where it's just us."

And the 'Hollers' star admits they try and not talk about the children when they are out.

He is quoted by People magazine as saying: "Just go to dinner and talk, it's really easy. We don't need much. We just go to dinner and talk and have no baby talk."

John also says he's pleased his daughters have Emily to look up to as a role model.

Speaking about their work schedule, he revealed: "What we're trying to do now is space it out so that one of us can always be with the kids so there's a little more calculation of what we do. But for the most part ... I'm also biased, but I'm also so proud to know that my daughters are going to grow up knowing that their mum is an incredibly hardworking, wonderful woman.

"I think that's really important for my kids. So that fact that Emily sometimes is like, 'Oh man, it's so hard to go to work and leave them behind,' it's like, yeah, but one day they are going to look up and say, 'She went to work, and it was great.'"
