In case you missed it while you were out celebrating America's Birthday yesterday, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt quietly released their own set of fireworks.
Apparently, the couple welcomed their second child—a daughter named Violet!—a few weeks ago. And Krasinski took to Twitter on Independence Day to finally announce the news:
"What better way to celebrate the 4th... than to announce our 4th family member!!!" the proud papa wrote in a tweet. "2 weeks ago we met our beautiful daughter Violet #Happy4th."
Awwww! So sweet! And we are just loving the name paired with the July 4th announcement—red and blue do combine to make violet, after all!
Blunt and Krasinski tied the knot back in 2010 after two years of dating, and the pair welcomed their first daugher—Violet's big sis Hazel—in February 2014. But according to the future Mary Poppins star, Little Miss Hazel wasn't totally down with the idea of losing her only-child status when she first learned there was a new baby coming along.
"She's sort of coming around to it," Blunt explained to E! News in April. "She sort of dismissed the idea initially and she just responded with, 'Nope.' 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."
We're willing to bet Hazel is just loving being a big sister by now, and we are so happy for the entire family of four. Congratulations all around!
