Emily Blunt and John Krasinski welcomed a second daughter named Violet.
Krasinski took to Twitter on Monday, July 4, to announce that he and his wife added to their family by welcoming a second daughter named Violet, two weeks ago.
“What better way to celebrate the 4th…than to announce our 44th family member!!!” he tweeted. “2 weeks ago we met our beautiful daughter Violet #Happy4th.”
The couple are also parents to Hazel, 2.
“She’s sort of coming around to it,” Blunt told E! News in April about Hazel’s feelings about getting a sibling. “Sh e sort of dismissed the idea initially and she just responded with, ‘Nope.’ ‘Nope,’ flat out! We’ve brought her every single ‘I’m a bog sister’ book that’s out there and she’s a bookworm, so she’s coming around.”
Blunt’s rep exclusively confirmed to Us Weekly that the Devil Wears Prada star, 33, was pregnant and expecting her second child with her hubby back in January.
Also earlier this year, Blunt talked about the differences between her first and second pregnancies in an interview with C Magazine.
“The first pregnancy is the most self-indulgent thing in the world be cause you get massages and prenatal yoga and hypnotherapy CD’s,” she said. “During this one I forgot that I’m even pregnant. I’m hoisting my 2-year-old around!”
Krasinski told Us Weekly how fatherhood has changed him at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
“I had my daughter (and there was this) existential crack that happens to everybody in a different way – it’s a mirror that you hold up to yourself and who you are and who you want to be,” The Office alum said. “I think those are amazing, challenging moments. That you all of a sudden relate to your parents more, you relate to your brothers more, you relate to your friends more.”
Blunt and Krasinski were married in a romantic Italian wedding ceremony in July 2010 after two years of dating.
