It’s A Girl For John Krasinski And Emily Blunt!

Jim Halpert, uh, I mean, John Krasinski and his leading lady, Emily Blunt , welcomed their first child to the universe over the long holiday weekend (and just after Valentine's Day!). The couple announced they were proud parents to a sweet baby girl.

The couple, who are pretty private and tend to stay out of the limelight when possible, pulled a complete 180 on us all by announcing their daughter's arrival on Twitter. Doting daddy tweeted, "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!"

In the tweet, Krasinski revealed that he and Blunt had named their little someone Hazel — and though it's not a name we expected for the couple, we absolutely love it. It's modern, with-the-times (remember, color-inspired baby names are all the rage this century!), and unique enough to make you say "Come again?" without being so out-of-the-box that you can't stand it.

Congratulations to the Blunt-Krasinski family! Welcomed to the world, baby Hazel.

Did you welcome your baby just in time for Valentine's Day?
