Former The Office star, John Krasinski, and wife, Emily Blunt, had a baby girl! Their first child, daughter Hazel, was born Sunday, February 16.
The two have been married for almost four years now. They dated for two years before they got married and the pregnancy was announced in September.
Kraskinski announced the news himself this morning tweeting, “Wanted to let the news out directly. Emily and I are so incredibly happy to welcome our daughter Hazel into the world today! Happy bday!”
The 30-year-old British actress celebrated the arrival of Hazel with close friends and family at her baby shower on December 15. According to E! News, the shower was filled with stars and famous faces including Jennifer Aniston, Justin Theroux and Kristen Bell. The shower took place in Los Angeles at a private residence.
Back in 2012, Blunt spoke to Manhattan magazine about wanting children saying, “We want to have children; I just don’t know when yet. I’m just not sure about the timing of all of that. We’re both from big families, so I think it’s something we want.” When it comes to their marriage, Blunt only had great things to say. “It’s hard to sum up something that’s so vital and means everything to you in a sound bite. Do you know what I mean? All I can say is that it’s an effing blast. It’s just great, and I’m so happy.”
Congratulations to the adorable couple on their baby girl!
