Taylor Hill/FilmMagic

It’s a girl!

John Krasinski and Emily Blunt welcomed their first child, daughter Hazel, on Sunday, Feb. 16.

The actor, 34, made the happy announcement himself via Twitter.

“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 former Office star writes.

The couple, who were married in 2010, announced the pregnancy in September.

In December, Blunt, 30, was honored at a baby shower celebrating the impending arrival.

dudley doright on

sometimes when people use old fashioned names on babies born in todays world, it can be kind of cute….but i don’t think hazel is one of the names. It’s old, and sounds old and it does not paint a nice picture. But, hey, it’s their kid, Congrats!

Juli on

Yay! Congratulations, Emily and John! With such gorgeous parents I’m sure baby Hazel is a stunner!

micky on

Ris on

Terrible name. And doesn’t match the last name. Happy for them though

Aussie Girl on

Love this couple. Congrats to them. To me they are the most normal of all celeb couples. So grounded. Very happy for them.

sharon on

Hazel on

Love the name!

KSmith on

Congrats but Hazel Krazinski?! Sounds like a 90 yr old.

Tom on

dudley doright, names are names are names, to each his own. Instead of dudley doright, change it to dudley doo doo; that fits you perfectly.

John Green on

Hope they have many more. All the best

Marjorie on

Amaryllis on

They’ll name the next two Gertrude and Hedwig.

Nancy on

All the names in the world and they pick Hazel. Probs a family name . . anyway CONGRATS!

Nycgirl on


maryhelenc on

Congrats to them! What a lovely name!

Danielle on

A lot of people are jumping the gun and assuming this baby is named Hazel Krasinski, maybe her name is Hazel Blunt-Krasinski, which to me sounds pretty good.

Anywho, she’s got a cute name, maybe I’m biased because I have a penchant for old lady names. 😛

theresa on

Congratulations!!! So happy for you both. Happy Birthday to wee Hazel:) God bless.

Smif on

Wonderful news. And all the posting that say “Not my first choice”, etc., etc., with regard to what THEY decided to name their baby – they probably don’t really care what you think.

Lonely Gurl on

Hopefully the baby gets Emily’s nose’

Taylor on

Wait, what’s wrong with “Hazel Krasinski”? I think it sounds nice! And it’s a legit name, so I don’t know why people are saying that it’s weird.

weezer on

What great parents they will be!!

ari on

What a hideous name.

Cyndi on

Beautiful couple and I’m sure she’s a beautiful baby. But the name is hideous.

Isabel on

Congratulations! I love these two and wish them the best with little Hazel.

Sarah S. on

Welcome to the world, baby Hazel! 🙂

UnKnown on

Congrats to John and Emily, and what a beautiful name for their daughter Hazel LOVE IT!

Really idiots out there clicking on sad and angry faces YOUR PATHETIC! Hazel is a beautiful name, do your research on other Celebs children names Apple, moses, moxie crime fighter, so on and so on so GET OVER IT!

Callie on

Love the name Hazel. Such a cute name for what I’m sure is an adorable baby girl 🙂

For you nay sayers………….SHUT UP!!! Could you be more rude?

ELC on

Very happy for them. Unfortunately, not a fan of the name they picked…please Hazel?That’s a hideous name for a child.

exit82 on

what?-wait- they’re married?-and have been for 4 years? who does that?

Anonymous on

Hazel Krasinski? Really?!

JJ on

Atleast her name isn’t Orange or Unicorn.

markandmayaadopt on

Love the name! It’s on our list of girl names, should we be able to adopt one. They seem like such a cute couple!

rp on

I like Hazel as a name but I think it sounds a little harsh with the last name. Oh well! I’m sure she’s a doll! Congrats!

Ivy. on

They’re such a lovely, sweet couple. Congrats to them!

Bugsmum on

Congrats to them.

I think it’s a lovely name. Those of you who don’t like the name because it “sounds old” do understand she won’t be an infant forever right?

It always amuses me when people complain a name sounds too grown up or old for a baby. Personally I’d rather see a baby given a name that will be appropriate as an adult than a adult with a silly childish name the would have been better as a nickname left in childhood. But I’m a bit old-fashioned like that. And Yes “Bug” is my daughters nickname.

Mariel on

Congrats to them!

Cyndi on

@Bugsmum. I totally agree about naming the adult NOT the baby. If all goes well throughout life, more time will be spent as an adult than as a baby or a young child. However, I don’t think anyone has a problem with Hazel sounding “old”, because many “old” names are just lovely. They, like I do, may have a problem with it sounding ugly. It is an absolutely hideous name for a baby, little girl, adolescent, teenager, young or old woman.

In pop culture, some may remember the tv show Hazel (google Shirley Booth Hazel) or even just the reruns, and many may also remember George Costanza saying how hard it was for him at school or in the neighborhood having a mom who looked like Hazel. And it’s not just because of that, it’s because the name is hideous. If it didn’t take off with Julia Roberts naming her daughter that, there’s a good reason.

zab on

Congrats! Beautiful Baby girl I’m sure and a perfect English name for a perfect English Rose…. ! Bravo aux nouveaux parents!!!!

Jame on


Cyndi on

@Miffy. I know! Hazel Krazinski. Yikes. Hardly the name of a perfect English Rose. Hazel Blunt. Even worse. Hazel Blunt Krazinski. Worse yet. WHAT were they thinking? And lol about hoping she doesn’t have his ears! Let’s hope she sure doesn’t have his ears, or her face before all that work she had done which transformed her into a somewhat nice looking girl. If any of that happens, Hazel Blunt Krazinski might not sound so good to them after all. Do they HATE her?

Paula on

Jame, you made me laugh w/ “HazKraz” !!!!!!

So funny!

Honestly, it seems like people on here are NEVER satisfied when it comes to celebrity babies names. When a celeb names their child something like Blue or North, people complain that it’s too weird and “out there” and wonder why more celebs can’t give their kids “normal” names.

Yet when a celeb DOES give their child a “normal” name, then it’s too old-fashioned, the “wrong” gender, too little kidish, horrible because it’s a nickname and those should never be used as full names, too bland, etc.

Anyway, congrats to them, and I happen to like the name! Incidentally, I was starting to think the media had gotten it wrong about her being due in February, seeing as how there isn’t much of the month left!

“Your mother is uglier than Hazel. Hazel really puts your mother to shame.”

Shoshanna on

Hazel? ?? Not a fan.

Candy on

My favorite actors. Congratulations, and love the name!

RachelB-MD on

setting that poor child up to be teased and bullied….what a name

Anonymous on

rachel- Any name can get teased and bullied. They could have named her Ann and kids STILL might have teased her.

Liz on

great parents…..horrible name…poor kiddo

Mel on

Like the name, congrats to them! At least they didn’t make the name of Strawberry or Apple or Pineapple. lol.

bkable on

I realize this is really late but I completely missed this article! Congratulations!!!!! I love this couple and wish them all the happiness in the world 🙂

Kristen on

I LOVE the name Hazel! Wishing I would have named my daughter that! Whoever complained about Hazel Krazinski sounding like a 90 year old …. what about Gracie Gold in the Olympics. I think that “sounds” just as old!

Stacey on

Think of “Hazel” as a color rather than a 90-year old woman…

I love the name!

sue good on

Hazel Krazinski. what a terribly ugly name,

Anonymous on

What’s uglier — the name, or the people rude enough to be negative about it? I’d rather have an ugly name than an ugly personality.
