What a beautiful baby—and a beautiful mother!
John Krasinski shared the first picture of his daughter Hazel on Twitter Tuesday, and the following day, his wife Emily Blunt talked in depth about their firstborn baby girl on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "You look amazing," host Ellen DeGeneres told the Edge of Tomorrow actress, who gave birth in February.
How did Blunt lose the baby weight so soon? "I don't know if other mothers had this, but I have found breastfeeding to be the thing," she said, before joking, "My boobs also thought I had 12 children."
Recalling when her breast milk came in, Blunt said, "It was like 3 in the morning and John woke up to me it was like something out of a horror movie. He said he just saw me creeping up to the bathroom...and he just saw my back, you know?" Krasinski didn't realize what was wrong until his wife turned around and pointed to her engorged boobs, which Blunt described as "enormous" and "veiny."
"I managed to produce a lot of milk. I don't know why it helped me lose the weight," Blunt admitted. "It was be amazing if people who aren't pregnant could just breast-feed. I mean, it would serve everyone. It would help everyone out." The Sunshine Cleaning star then joked, "I could have been the wet nurse in Medieval Times because I could have fed the village while they all went to work."
Breast-feeding horror story aside, Blunt also revealed how she and her husband settled on the name Hazel. "I find it very stressful naming a human being, you know?" the actress said. "We went through a few different ones and then John found it. And we both really like old lady names."
Blunt, who described her daughter as "stinkin' cute," also praised Krasinski's parenting skills. "He is the greatest dad," the Devil Wears Prada star raved. "He is like the burp king. He can just get a beer burp out of this kid. It even surprised her—you can tell. He burps her and she's...kind of taken aback by it."
