The word “hazel” used to be used as an adjective to describe eye color when neither brown nor green really fit, but from now on, it will be known as a noun used as the name of John Krasinski and Emily Blunt’s daughter.
Proud papa John announced Hazel’s birth on Twitter yesterday afternoon, no laundry detergent brand hash tags included. So while Hazel may never be as “famous” as the baby of Kevin and Danielle Jonas, she’s off to an infinitely better start as far as I’m concerned. Sure, maybe Emily is hotter than John, but John’s still pretty hot, and they can both act. This baby will have looks and talent in spades.
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!

Not only did the Krasinski-Blunt baby (no announcement on which surname will follow Hazel’s) come into the world without being
exploited sponsored by a laundry detergent, her parents kept her impending arrival a secret for almost six whole months. Does this mean that baby girl Hazel didn’t have as much designer couture waiting for her as North West? Probably. Does it also mean her parents are wisely exercising their basic human right to privacy? Yes. John and Emily are notoriously private about their personal lives and it just makes me want to start a slow-clap for them and for Hazel for being a celebrity family to look up to.
Happy belated birthday, Hazel. Whether your eyes are brown, green or purple (celebrity babies can have purple eyes, right?) I wish you the best in this crazy world. Fortunately you have to pretty good people to show you the ropes.
