John Krasinski talks about his new daughter and her relationship with big sister Hazel

John Kraskinski has revealed what life is like with two daughters, having welcomed his second child with Emily Blunt, a baby girl named Violet, to the world back in June. The ecstatic father of two also opened up about his girls' "adorable" relationship with one another.

Speaking of his new film The Hollars, which follows a man facing fatherhood, The Office star revealed how he didn't think he would have been able to take on the role without drawing from his own experiences with his first daughter, two-year-old Hazel.

He told ET: "We started shooting the movie when my daughter was four-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.

"All the clichés of parenting are true and you feel all sort of new things. It was really this new existential magnet that you feel draw to your family… and you understand your parents more, you understand your brothers' relationships more, you understand even your family's name. That you are from somewhere."

The 36-year-old then chatted about his two daughters' beautiful relationship, revealing his eldest daughter adores her baby sister. He said: "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 two-and-a-half-year-old hugs a newborn baby it's one of the cutest things you will ever see."

It sounds like little Hazel finally loves the idea of having a little sister, as Emily previously revealed that her daughter was less than pleased at the prospect of having a new sibling. Chatting to E! News, the Into the Woods actress said: "[Hazel]'s sort of coming round to it. She sort of dismissed the idea initially, and she just responded with, 'Nope'. 'Nope,' flat out.

"We've bought her every single 'I'm a big sister' book that's out there and she's a bookworm, so she's coming around."
