|Real Name:||Violet Krasinski|
|Occupation:||Daughter of Emily Blunt and John Krasinski|
Violet Krasinski has two of the most popular parents in Hollywood. And if things go well, please Marvel please, she might be part of the first Marvel family.
For years fans have been petitioning for John Krasinski to play Mr. Fantastic and his wife Emily Blunt as Mrs. Fantastic. And after John appeared in Doctor Strange 2, fans might get their wish. At least in some way.
Violet’s parents might be trying to keep their children away from the media spotlight. But when you get a role in a Marvel movie and became part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, things really start popping.
How much do you know about Violet and her parents? Does she have any siblings? Let’s find out.
Who Is Her Father?
Born John Burke Krasinski in October 1979, John is an American actor and filmmaker. He is best known for his role as Jim Halpert on the NBC sitcom The Office.
Born in Brighton, Boston, he was the youngest of three boys of nurse Mary Clare and internist Ronald Krasinski. His mother is of Irish ancestry and his father is of Polish ancestry. John was raised Catholic.
He made his stage debut in a sixth-grade school production of the musical Annie. Krasinski graduated from Newton South High School in 1997 and then attended Brown University. In between that, he taught English as a foreign language for six months in Costa Rica.
During his time at Brown, Krasinski was a member of the sketch comedy group Out of Bounds. He studied English and playwriting at college.
John’s breakthrough came in 2004 when he was cast in the NBC sitcom The Office. It was a remake of the successful British TV series. The Office is a mockumentary about life at a mid-sized paper supply company. John portrayed Jim Halpert, as an intelligent and mild-mannered sales representative.
After The Office, John has appeared in movies like License to Wed, Leatherheads, Away We Go, It’s Complicated, Something Borrowed, Promised Land, Aloha, and more.
Over the years, Marvel fans have petitioned for him to get the role of Reed Richards/ Mr Fantastic as Marvel announced they will make another Fantastic Four movie. Krasinski appeared as the founding member of Marvel’s first family in Doctor Strange 2 Multiverse of Madness.
Besides appearing in television series and movies, John has done some voice work for movies like Monsters University and Shrek the Third.
Who Is Her Mother?
Violet has two celebrity parents. John is her father, and her mother is Emily Blunt. Born Emily Olivia Leah Blunt in February 1983, she is a British actress. Among her accolades, Emily has won a Golden Globe Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award. In 2020, Forbes ranked her as one of the highest-paid actresses in the world.
Born in February 1983 in the London Borough of Wandsworth, she is the second of four children. Her mother Joanna is a former actress and teacher, and her father Oliver Blunt worked as a barrister.
Here is a fun fact: from age seven to 14, actress Emily Blunt had difficulties with stuttering. Thanks to a school teacher, she succeeded in managing the stutter through acting.
In 2001, Blunt made her acting debut in a stage production of The Royal Family and then appeared in the movie Boudica in 2003. The same year, she portrayed Queen Catherine Howard in the miniseries Henry VIII.
Her breakthrough came in 2006 when she got the starring role in the movie Gideon’s Daughter and the comedy-drama film The Devil Wears Prada. Both of these movies helped her win an award or nomination. The former won her a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress, and the latter a BAFTA Award nomination.
Her profile continued to grow and she appeared in movies like The Young Victoria, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, The Adjustment Bureau, Looper, Edge of Tomorrow, and Mary Poppins Returns.
Her Parents’ Relationship
Nowadays, American actor John Krasinski and British actress Emily Blunt are considered one of the most adorable families and couples in Hollywood. But before meeting John, she had a three-year relationship with musician Michael Buble.
The two met in 2008, and both say it was love at first sight. They met at a restaurant.
Emily recalled the event in one interview, saying, “I was in a restaurant, he was in the restaurant. I was sitting with a mutual friend and my friend Gray goes, Oh my god that’s my friend John. And that was it. He was sitting with our friend Justin Theroux and he abandoned Justin and came over to us. He just stood there and made me laugh. I knew it right away”.
After they met, they went on their first date, and it was a bold one. Their first date was to a shooting range. He thought “I am going to really hit the gas and bring her to a gun range”. To his surprise, Emily loved it and the date went well.
Emily and John got married in July 2010 in a private ceremony at George Clooney’s estate in Lake Como, Italy. Three years into their marriage, Emily said that he changed her life.
She said, “Meeting John really changed my life. When I feel the support that I have from him, I feel invincible. There’s someone behind you on your good days and someone in front of you on your bad days”.
The couple announced their first baby in September 2013, and in February 2014, Emily and John welcomed Hazel Grace Krasinski. In January 2016, they announced their second child, and in June 2016, Violet Krasinski was born.
Fans have been petitioning for these two to appear in a movie together. And that finally happened in March 2017, when they revealed they work on the project A Quiet Place together. Who knows, maybe Marvel will pull it off and bring them to the Marvel Cinematic Universe together.
Now let’s talk a bit about Violet Krasinski, the pair’s second child. She was born in June 2016, and like Hazel, it was John who announced it on Twitter.
He wrote in July, “What better way to celebrate the 4th than to announce our 4th family member. Two weeks ago we met our beautiful daughter Violet #Happy 4th”.
In February 2018, her father said that Violet already had an ear for music. He was trying to entertain her by singing a children’s song, and all of a sudden, she joined in.
Unlike her sister Hazel, Violet adopted a British accent. That might have happened while she attended an in-person school in London during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Emily said, “My little one sent me a video of her singing Jingle Bells, and she sang in an almost Cockney accent. It was almost like Dick Van Dyke singing Jingle Bells. The craziest accent ever. It was kind of brilliant”.
Violet and her sister attended a proper school with proper uniforms and were sounding quite British.
Her father, John, revealed that fatherhood came with a lot of changes. In one interview, The Office star revealed he experienced an existential crisis following the birth of his first child.
In 2016, Krasinski said, “I went through some really serious stuff. There is a mirror that is held up to me now. You have someone watching you. You have to lead by example”. He then continued saying that becoming a parent allowed him to become a better person.
And despite being busy with their working careers, Emily and John find time to be together and spent time with their daughters.
Does She Have Siblings?
As we said before, Violet is the second child of Emily and John. Their first child, Hazel was born in February 2014. John announced the news on Twitter, saying, “Wanted to let the news out directly. Emily and I are so incredibly happy to welcome our daughter Hazel into the world today”.
He also shared a rare photo of Hazel on social media in May 2014. But then, he said he wants to keep his family’s privacy by saying, “Pics of kids should only come direct from parents”.
Since then, he has not shared any photos of his daughters on social media.
Shout Out To Their Children
While John doesn’t post on social media about his daughters, he loves to show his love whenever he can.
In January 2021, he gave them a shout-out while hosting Saturday Night Live. As he concluded the show, he wore a black crew neck sweater with H + V written in white letters.
The famous actor wanted to have his daughters’ initials monogrammed on his shirt. He also mentioned Hazel Krasinski and Violet while hosting the comedy series.
He said, “I have been watching this show since I was 8 years old. I was trying to explain that to my kids, what I was doing this week. I told them, You know how your favorite show is Paw Patrol? My favorite show is SNL”.
He then continued, “So for me, it’s like I am on Paw Patrol. And they were like, What? You are on Paw Patrol? And I was like no, no, no. And they were like, Call us when you are on Paw Patrol”.
Is She On Social Media?
Violet and Hazel are too young to be on social media. Their mother Emily Blunt doesn’t even have a social media account.
And their father John doesn’t want to have pictures of them on social media. The girls haven’t accompanied their parents to red carpets or other events.
Both John and Emily have talked about how they want to conceal their fame from their daughters. They do not want any of their children to take their path into acting or Hollywood.
When asked if they would be happy seeing their children on the big screen, she replied, “God no! Please God keep them off the stage”.
Why the name Violet?
While appearing on Ellen DeGeneres’ show, Emily revealed that the nature of the names of their daughters stems from a family tradition. That tradition calls for choosing old lady names.
That is why they chose the name Hazel for their first child and the name Violet for their second child.
Giving Back To The Community
You do not normally expect this from young children. But during the Covid-19 pandemic, Violet and her sister Hazel decided to give back to the community.
The two girls designed a T-shirt with proceeds going to the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund. The Krasinski-Blunt family wanted to help raise money for employees working in the restaurant industry.
While they give back to the community, Violet Krasinski and her sister do not earn money. They are way too young for something like that.
Instead, they rely on their parents to bring money into the home. Luckily, John and Emily have a combined net worth of more than $70 million. Their hard work in the entertainment industry has helped them earn massive wealth.
