Congratulations are in order for Emily Blunt and John Krasinski! While fireworks were blasting off on Monday in celebration of the Fourth of July, the excited couple were busy celebrating another special event: the birth of their second baby girl.

Yesterday, the proud father announced the big news on Twitter, writing, "What better way to celebrate the 4th... than to announce our 4th family member!!! 2 weeks ago we met our beautiful daughter Violet."

The little girl, who was born secretly in mid-June 2016, already has a big sister in 2-year-old Hazel, who was born in February 2014.

While some celebrities prefer to make an immediate announcement when welcoming a new baby into the world, Blunt and Krasinski, who wed in 2010, aren't the first famous parents who have kept the birth of their child under wraps for a bit.

Back in May, it was discovered that Alexis Bledel and Vincent Kartheiser had given birth to their first child, a son, months before the news ever broke. In fact, it was reported that their little boy was born all the way back in the fall of 2015 and his existence may have continued to be a secret had Bledel's Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life costar Scott Patterson not spilled the beans baby food.
