Guess who's the latest Hollywood starlet with a bun in the oven? Emily Blunt and husband John Krasinski are set to welcome a tiny bundle of joy in just a few months' time, a rep for the actress confirms to Us Weekly.

The couple, who tied the knot in a star-studded ceremony in Italy in 2010, have never been shy about their desire for children, and have been making moves to ready themselves for parenthood, a source tells Us.

"They both want kids; it's one of the reasons they got a bigger place, in a neighborhood that you can raise a family," the source explained. "They both couldn't be more excited."

In an interview with Manhattan magazine last year, the 30-year-old British actress opened up about their hope to start a family.

"We want to have children; I just don't know when yet," the "Devil Wears Prada" star told the magazine. "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."

A few months later, Krasinski, 33, told Matt Lauer on the TODAY show that he has been getting a taste of fatherhood from his pals who are already dads, like Matt Damon, with whom he was working at the time on the film "Promised Land."

"We actually wrote with children climbing all over him, and he was doing bath time and dinner and everything, and we still got it done," the former "Office" star said at the time.
