We already knew that John Krasinski was #husbandgoals, but he just won our hearts over again: The actor—who has been filming his new Amazon Prime show, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan—revealed that even during filming, he strived to make time for his family.

At the Jack Ryan premiere at the U.S.S. Iowa Battleship Museum in Los Angeles, the A Quiet Place star revealed to People that he flew home from Montreal to London weekly to see his wife, Emily Blunt, and their two daughters, Hazel, 4, and Violet, 2.

“Family for me, it’s a non-negotiable thing,” Krasinski, 38, said in the interview. “So if I’m honest, I was shooting 6,000 miles away from them, and I flew back every single weekend.”

Because Blunt was working on her own movie at their home in London at the time, Krasinski took on the responsibility of staying close to his family despite the distance between them. “Emily was shooting a little indie movie called Mary Poppins,” Krasinski joked. “So they were with her, and we always set up a base, and I always want the base to be with their mom, and I’ll do the flight time.”

Krasinski's eight-plus hour commute wasn't easy, but the actor said it was all worth it to see his family.

“I think that there’s nothing you can complain about in this business, you know what I mean?” he continued. “We are all so lucky to be doing what we’re doing. If there’s one thing that’s a bummer, it’s that you spend time away from your kids. But guess what, a lot of people spend time away from their kids. So for me, I think we’re all living in a fantasy camp. So I’m not going to be the first one to complain.”

Krasinski’s Jack Ryan co-star, Dina Shihabi, previously told People about the actor's commitment to his family. “He flew basically every weekend to London, where Emily was shooting Mary Poppins, to be with his kids. He would wrap at like 5 a.m. on a Saturday morning, get on the next flight to London, and then come back Sunday night,” she said.

Krasinski and Blunt co-starred together for the first time in their 2017 horror movie A Quiet Place, and we hope it's the first of many movies these two bless us with.
