John Krasinski and Emily Blunt welcomed their first child, daughter Hazel, on Sunday.

The actor, 34, made the happy announcement himself via Twitter.

“Wanted to let the news out directly. Emily and I are so incredibly happy to welcome our daughter Hazel into the world today! Happy bday!” he wrote, according to People.com.

It also is the perfect early birthday present for Blunt, who turns 31 next week.

The couple, who wed in Italy in 2010, announced the pregnancy in September.

ALSO IN THE PINK

And you thought Kim Kardashian's 1,000 Valentine's Day roses from fiancé Kanye West were amazing.

Just think how Jordin Sparks must have felt when not just a few bouquets, but 10,000 pink roses began arriving at her suite at Hollywood, Calif.'s Redbury Hotel on Friday, People.com reports.

Her singer beau Jason Derulo wanted her to feel loved and special, so he offered the grandest of gestures to show his appreciation. "I only wish I could have fit 10,000 more in here," Derulo, 24, sweetly tweeted of his splurge. "Valentine's everyday!"

The American Idol winner, 24, was feeling the love. "They're so beautiful. Omg," Sparks tweeted.

The happy couple, who fended off engagement rumors last fall — she appeared in his Marry Me video — spent the rest of the afternoon sipping moscato and dining on lobster pizza.

But their love was too grand not to share.

Derulo and Sparks, who noted that she was "completely overwhelmed" by her gift, later paid it forward, donating many of the bouquets to the hotel's staff and guests before taking a few home.

    Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley no longer speak: Is it because of Scientology?

    Que paso? Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley used to be so close. They met as partners on Dancing with the Stars and stayed in touch but these days they no longer speak. “She stopped getting along with me,” Chmerkovskiy told Andy Cohen on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live. “I got a message now that I am associating with other people that she can't be associated with, I am no longer to be spoken with, and sorry, but it is what it is.” Jennifer Lopez, rumored to be dating the dancer, is besties with Leah Remini, who recently left the Church of Scientology, and that perhaps doesn’t sit well with Alley, who remains loyal to Tom Cruise’s church.

    At 88, Hollywood legend Lee Grant looks back in ‘I Said Yes to Everything’

    Actress Lee Grant came that close to washing Shampoo out of her hair when co-star Warren Beatty told her how to play the scene when she learns he has seduced her character’s daughter. The matter got resolved after she spoke to the actual director, Hal Ashby, and then to Beatty again. Not only did she win an Oscar for the role, but she and Beatty became great friends, even sharing a few passionate kisses after filming ended.
