Emily Blunt & John Krasinski Welcome Baby No. 2

Krasinski and Blunt welcomed their second child, a daughter named Violet, two weeks ago



    John Krasinski, the 36-year-old "The Office" alum and "13 Hours" actor, revealed on Monday, the Fourth of July, that he and his wife, Golden Globe-winning actress Emily Blunt, welcomed their second child, a daughter named Violet, two weeks ago.

    "What better way to celebrate the 4th... than to announce our 4th family member!!!" he tweeted. "2 weeks ago we met our beautiful daughter Violet #Happy4th."

    Violet joins big sister Hazel, 2.

    "She's sort of coming around to it," Blunt told E! News' Zuri Hall in April, talking about the little girl's feelings about getting a sibling. "She sort of dismissed the idea initially and she just responded with, 'Nope.' 'Nope,' flat out! We've bought her every single 'I'm a big sister' book that's out there and she's a bookworm, so she's coming around."

    Blunt showcased her baby bump on the red carpet for the first time in late February at the 2016 Oscars.

    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 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!"

    Blunt and Krasinski did not reveal their new child's sex ahead of time. In May, Charlize Theron, Blunt's co-star in the 2016 film "The Huntsman: Winter's War," hosted a baby shower for the actress, which featured a pastel blue cake with pink frosting and cloud and rubber duck decorations.
