If there’s one thing John Krasinksi knows, it’s that he is a fortunate man in both his professional and personal life.

“If we aren’t working, we’re at home with the kids,” The Hollars star, 36, says of the dynamic he shares in raising daughters Violet, 9 weeks, and Hazel, 2½, with wife Emily Blunt. “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,” he continues of the balance he and Blunt find between being parents and being husband and wife. “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.”

When asked what their date nights consist of, Krasinski has a pretty straightforward answer.

“Just go to dinner and talk, it’s really easy,” The Office alum says. “We don’t need much. We just go to dinner and talk and have no baby talk.”

John Krasinksi‘s new life as a dad of two girls has no doubt been a bit of an adjustment. But at least his older daughter Hazel is doing just fine with not being an only child anymore.

“She’s an amazing big sister,” The Hollars star, who welcomed daughter Violet with wife Emily Blunt in June, tells PEOPLE of his 2½-year-old little girl. “It’s a great age because she’s still young enough to not feel competitive with the baby, but still old enough to recognize how adorable the baby is. I think she’s in heaven.”

Is there something that Hazel does with her sister that’s especially cute? (Spoiler alert: Of course there is.)

“Honestly, just a hug is heartbreaking,” adds the proud dad, 36. “When Hazel gives a hug to Violet, right there in that moment you can see this huge relationship that will last much longer than I’m around … it’s so beautiful.”

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski are expecting baby number two, and everyone’s excited – except for maybe baby number one.

The Huntsman: Winter’s War actress told Jimmy Kimmel during an appearance on his talk show Monday that her 2-year-old daughter, Hazel, is still warming up to the idea of being a big sister.

“She quite likes being top dog at the moment I think,” Blunt explained of her little girl. “I broached it with her and the first response when I said, ‘You know, Hazel, there’s a baby in there, you’re gonna be a big sister.’ She looked at me and she went, ‘Nope.’ And I went, ‘Yes.’ That was the first talk.”

It’s time to switch the office into another nursery!

John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are expecting their second child, their rep confirms to PEOPLE.

The actors, who tied the knot in July 2010, are already parents to 23-month-old daughter Hazel.

In August, the 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi star admitted the proud parents were excited about expanding their family — and joked about stirring up a little sibling rivalry.

“Hopefully one day we will!” Krasinski, 36, told Entertainment Tonight. “One day, I don’t know when. We’ve got to give her some competition at some point.”
