John Krasinski and Emily Blunt have chosen a beautiful name for their newborn daughter


John Krasinski and Emily Blunt have announced the arrival of their second child - and the beautiful name they have given their new daughter.

The proud father revealed to the world that Emily actually gave birth two weeks ago.

The 36-year-old actor wrote on Twitter on Monday:

Emily, 33, and John also have a two-year-old daughter, Hazel.

The Sicario star announced in January that she was expecting - but there was no slowing down, as she was busy filming Girl On The Train and promoting her film The Huntsman: Winter's War', in which she plays Ice Queen Freya. She will soon star in Mary Poppins.

Emily and John tied the knot in July 2010.

The newborn will not be the only Violet in the celebrity children's playground: Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck's daughter is also called Violet.
