Krasinski announced the birth of their baby daughter, named Violet, via Twitter on July 4th. "What better way to celebrate the 4th... than to announce our 4th family member!!! 2 weeks ago we met our beautiful daughter Violet," he wrote.
Blunt's rep confirmed that the Devil Wears Prada actress was pregnant back in January, and baby Violet joins the family as a little sister to the couple's first daughter, Hazel, 2.
In March Blunt spoke to C magazine about how her second pregnancy had differed to the first. "The first pregnancy is the most self-indulgent thing in the world because you get massages and prenatal yoga and hypnotherapy CDs," she said. "During this one I forget that I’m even pregnant. I’m hoisting my 2-year-old around!"
Krasinski also spoke out in January about how being a new dad changed his perspective. "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,” He told Us. "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."
Congratulations Emily and John, and welcome to the world little Violet!
