The couple welcomed their second daughter Violet two months ago and, according to John, their two-year-old daughter Hazel is already enthusiastically taking on the role of big sister.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight at the premiere of his new film, "The Hollars," the 36-year-old actor spoke about the joys of being a father.
She's amazing. She really loves the baby and I think there is this idea of, 'Oh my God, she is adorable.' I mean when a 2-and-a-half-year-old hugs a newborn baby? It's one of the cutest things you will ever see.
Yep, pretty much the only thing I can imagine would be cuter than a toddler hugging a baby is John Krasinski cooing over a toddler hugging a baby.
But seriously, that newborn girl has it made. I mean, Jim Halpert as a dad, Emily Blunt as a mom and a big sister who's already obsessed with her?
Violet is totally living the sweet life.
Ironically, John's film is about a man facing the challenges of fatherhood himself. He said that his own family definitely affected his approach to the character.
We started shooting the movie when my daughter was 4-and-half-months-old, and I've got to say that, had I shot this five months before, that it would have been a totally different movie.
"The Hollars" is in theaters August 26.
