Every time we see them on the red carpet, Emily Blunt and John Krasinkski prove just how in love they are, constantly giggling together and unable to peel their eyes off one another.

But it doesn't stop there.

Even in interviews, the couple can't help but gush about one another. It's not that annoying lovey-dovey type of gushing that you can tell is fabricated and fake—it's so real it could make your heart melt.

Case in point: Krasinski unabashedly told Elle magazine that his favorite romantic comedy has always been The Devil Wears Prada.

"I can honestly say, before I met Emily, it was The Devil Wears Prada," he revealed to the publication. "That one dosed me in a really big way."

He continued, "When we first started dating, I didn't know that she was coming over and I was watching it, and she was like, 'Oh, what are you watching?'—and I quickly changed the channel to something dude-like."

If you don't think that's not a big enough sign to prove this duo was meant to be, we have some more evidence that does:

He Knew From the Start: Describing the first time they met, Krasinski told Ellen DeGeneres, "It was one of those things where I wasn't really looking for a relationship and I was thinking I'm going to take my time in L.A.," he recalled. "Then I met her and I was so nervous. I was like, 'Oh god, I think I'm going to fall in love with her.' As I shook her hand I went, 'I like you.'"

Meeting Him Changed Her Life: Blunt doesn't hold back in admitting Krasinski has altered her life forever. "Meeting John really changed my life," she told InStyle in 2013. "When I feel the support that I have from him, I feel invincible. There's someone behind you on your good days, and someone in front of you on your bad days."

She's the Reason He Loves His Job: "I wouldn't have met my wife. I wouldn't have been out in L.A," he told the Today Show while talking about the impact of The Office. "Truly, when I say the show has given me everything, it's given me everything."

They Both Cried During Their Engagement: "It was very casual," he told Access Hollywood in 2009. "I was nervous and the whole nine yards. She did cry after I cried and we cried and then everyone around us was crying. Then, I think people weren't really sure what was going on, but they were crying because we were crying. But it was great. At the end of the day she said yes which is great. It's a big part of this whole thing." 

They Both Like Old Lady Names: "I find it very stressful naming a human being," Blunt told Ellen DeGeneres back in May after naming their first daughter Hazel. "So we went through a few different ones and then John found it and we both really like old lady names."

Their Marriage Is Fun: "This is what I find difficult about talking about my marriage: It's hard to sum up something that's so vital and means everything to you in a sound bite. Do you know what I mean?" Emily asked Manhattan magazine in 2012. "All I can say is that it's an effing blast. It's just great, and I'm so happy."

He Cried Watching Into the Woods: "He absolutely loved it," Blunt told E! News last year. "I think he was so moved by it by what it's saying to this generation and that idea of nobody being alone at the end. It's such an amazing theme running through this film."

She's His "One" Person: In an interview with The Daily Beast in January, he described his love for his wife in the most beautiful way. "I'll be really honest with you, I was never the coolest kid on the block, so I never had the ‘good ol' days' of a playboy type of lifestyle. My good ol' days were entirely different. So for me, the best days of my life started when I met my wife—that's the truth, it's not just me saying it because it sounds nice on a card," he admitted. "She's one of the coolest people, she's so talented, she's beautiful, and she's certainly out of my league. And so all of a sudden all of the things I loved, I got to find someone who loved that about me. There was a lot of my life that she hadn't experienced and a lot of her life that I hadn't experienced, so all of a sudden we got to start doing things that we liked."

He added, "When you're lucky enough to meet your one person, then life takes a turn for the best. It can't get better than that."

If you don't believe that's true love, then what is?!
