Emily Blunt’s Kids: All About John Krasinski and Emily Blunt’s 2 daughters

John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are one of Hollywood’s most beautiful couple, and despite their busy schedules, they have managed to keep their personal lives, including their two daughters, Hazel and Violet, out of the public eye.

However, in recent years, they have shared some precious moments and insights into their parenting journey, giving us a glimpse into their family life.

Raising Two Girls in the Spotlight

In a 2021 interview with The Sunday Times, Emily Blunt revealed that her daughters were “oblivious” to their parents’ fame, and that she and John Krasinski wanted to keep it that way for as long as possible.

This may have changed slightly over the years, as Blunt shared that she earned major credit with her kids for working with Ryan Gosling on The Fall Guy after they watched him play Ken in Barbie.

Emily Blunt’s Kids

Hazel Krasinski, 9

Hazel Krasinski, the couple’s older daughter, was born on February 16, 2014. John Krasinski announced the birth on Twitter, writing, “Emily and I are so incredibly happy to welcome our daughter Hazel into the world today! Happy bday!” The couple had announced the pregnancy in September 2013, after three years of marriage, and Blunt celebrated Hazel’s impending arrival with a baby shower that December.

In May 2014, when Hazel was almost three months old, Krasinski shared the first photo of her on Twitter, writing, “Pics of kids should only come direct from parents.” The following year, the couple revealed during an interview with Entertainment Tonight that they’d like to give Hazel a sibling “one day.” “We’ve got to give her some competition at some point,” they said jokingly.

After Violet’s birth in 2016, Krasinski told PEOPLE that Hazel was an “amazing big sister.” He also said that Hazel was a “big talker” and into “all that girly stuff,” along with drawing and going on bike rides with her dad. According to Blunt, Hazel spoke with a British accent like her mother at first but began adopting an American accent later on.

In 2020, Krasinski joked about Hazel’s comedic timing on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The actor explained that he’d planned to make a photo wall with family shots, and put the new photo frames he’d bought on the floor. “The girls came over and they’re like ‘Wow, you’re doing such a great job, Daddy,’ ” he said. “And then Hazel literally leaned on my shoulder and she went, ‘So good. Don’t you think you should put pictures of us up?’ ” He added, “It was all the fake families in the frames! It was amazing. I think she was genuinely concerned that I was losing my mind.”

Violet Krasinski, 7

Violet Krasinski was born in June 2016, and like her sister, her birth was announced by her dad on Twitter. “What better way to celebrate the 4th… than to announce our 4th family member!!! 2 weeks ago we met our beautiful daughter Violet #Happy4th,” Krasinski wrote on the Fourth of July.

In February 2018, Krasinski revealed that Violet already had an ear for music during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. He was trying to entertain her by singing a children’s song, “And all of a sudden Violet, who is 18 months, goes ‘Yeah, baby,’ ” he said, dropping his voice to a lower octave. “That deep! And I was like, ‘Emily, first of all, has she heard the song before? Second of all, what was that?’ And she’s like, ‘I have no idea,’ ” Krasinski recalled.

While her older sister might have taken on more of an American accent at one point, Violet adopted a British accent while at school in London during the COVID-19 pandemic. Blunt appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in 2020, explaining that both Hazel and Violet were attending a “proper school with proper uniforms” and were “sounding quite British.”

The Mary Poppins Returns star continued, “My little one sent me a video — well she didn’t actually send it but someone sent it — of her singing ‘Jingle Bells,’ and she goes, ‘Jingle ol’ da waye!’ Almost like a Cockney. It was almost like Dick Van Dyke singing ‘Jingle Bells.’ The craziest accent ever — it was kind of brilliant.”

Parenting in the Spotlight

John Krasinski and Emily Blunt have been open about the challenges of parenting in the spotlight. In 2016, Krasinski told PEOPLE that he experienced a bit of an “existential crisis” after the birth of his first child.

“I went through some really serious stuff,” Krasinski said. “There is a mirror that is held up to me now. You have someone watching you. You have to lead by example.” He added that becoming a parent has allowed him to focus on “becoming a better person every single day.”

In July 2023, during an episode of the Table For Two podcast, Blunt announced that she is taking a step back from acting to focus on her children. A couple of months later, Krasinski and the Oppenheimer actress made a rare public appearance with Hazel and Violet at the 2023 US Open.
