Do you remember the moment you met “the one?” The movies make us think it’s going to be a big, romantic moment — but sometimes, it’s pretty awkward. Just ask John Krasinski.

The star of The Office is currently married to actress Emily Blunt. The two of them make for a pretty impressive Hollywood power couple, but John admits that things aren’t always as smooth as they seem. In an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show John admitted that he totally embarrassed himself the first time he met his future wife.

In the 2011 interview, which was taped just after his wedding to Emily, John insists he knew right away that Emily was “the one.” But knowing that made him nervous.

He told Ellen, “I met her, and I was so nervous. And I was like, ‘Oh god, I think I’m going to fall in love with her.'” But John’s panic was more than just internal. He admitted to Ellen that he blurted out “I like you!” when he shook Emily’s hand for the first time!

Although that would have been enough for me to want to sink into the floor forever (and probably was enough for John, too) it clearly worked out well for him! Emily and John now have two kids together and look more in love than ever.
