Her former TV husband John Krasinski had a baby with wife Emily Blunt just last week, and now we've got related news: The Office's former Pam Beesley Jenna Fischer is pregnant. Congrats, Jenna Fischer!Fischer's been married to screenwriter Lee Kirk (The Giant Mechanical Man, Pants On Man, The Man Who Invented The Moon) since 2010 after having fallen in love on the set of The Giant Mechanical Man. The way she described their courtship in an interview with Vulture was especially cute:
So, at what point did you guys actually fall in love?
Well, I attached myself as producer and actor to the movie. Then, for the next six or eight months or so, Lee was writing the movie, and he would turn in different drafts, and I would give him my thoughts. Very slowly, over those months, our meetings started turning into dates. I was hesitant to tell him that I was developing feelings for him because this is my first producing job. I wanted to be professional! And here I am, falling in love with the writer.
It kind of sounds like a movie.
It is a romantic comedy in itself. And what if we dated for three months and then it fell apart? I loved the movie so much that I didn’t want to do anything to jeopardize it. But after eight months of doing this, we finally confessed that we had feelings for each other. It was so great, because we had fallen in love. And that sort of thing is usually not in your dating life. You don’t get to spend that much time with someone before becoming romantic with them. It was very romantic and sweet. It was a lot of dinners with wine and going to see movies, while pretending like we were developing a movie when in fact we were essentially developing a relationship.
This will be the couple's second child, their first being a son, Weston, born in 2011.
