'LOOPER' star Emily Blunt is pregnant.

The 30-year-old actress and her husband John Krasinski are expecting their first child together and are delighted to be becoming parents.

A representative for the British beauty has confirmed the news to Us Weekly magazine and Emily is due to give birth in a few months.

The couple got married in July 2010 in Como, Italy, and have been together since November 2008.

It seems having a baby has been on Emily's mind for some time.

Last year, 'The Wolfman' star revealed she and John, 33, had been discussing starting a family.

In an interview with Manhattan magazine, she said: "We want to have children, I just don't know when yet. I'm just not sure about the timing of all of that. We're both from big families, so I think it's something we want."

Emily - who was previously in a relationship with Michael Buble - also revealed her marriage to 'The Office' star was great and she'd never been happier.

She said: "What I find difficult about my marriage: It's hard to sum up something that's so vital and means everything to you in a soundbite. Do you know what I mean? All I can say is that it's an effing blast. I'm just great and I'm so happy."
