I am a big fan of Emily Blunt, and I loved her just a little but more after she named her baby daughter Hazel instead of something kerazy, as seems to be the norm in celeb land.

And now Emily and husband John Krasinski have gone even further up in my estimation, after they shared a snap of their baby girl on John's Twitter account, along with the caption:

Pics of kids should only come direct from parents. So I'm thrilled to introduce you guys to Hazel!!! #NoKidsPolicy

The Daily Mail reports:

"The little girl seemed as if she already knew how to pose as she is photographed with one arm up over her shoulder and the other to her side, making a fist."

"She stares up at the camera with big blue eyes and doesn't smile but looks as if she's curious as to what's going on."

"Hazel is dressed in a designer outfit: a light pink Ralph Lauren top with the hot pink polo logo on full display."

Hmm, thanks Daily Mail, because we couldn't see that for ourselves.... anyway, according to Hello magazine, choosing baby Hazel's name didn't come easy to the couple, and the mag reports that Emily told the Ellen De Generes show that she found it "really stressful naming a human being" but that they settled on Hazel after discovering the both "really like old lady names."

And in my all-time favourite celeb mum anecdote, Hello also reports:

"'She's so cute,' said Emily. 'She came out ready for a photoshoot. She was just perfect. I remember we were in the recovery room afterwards and this nurse came in, her name was Mabel — another great old lady name — and she said, 'Your baby is so cute. She's awesome, she's so cute.''

'And I went, 'Mabel, I think you say that to everyone.' And she said, 'No, I don't. When I know a baby's ugly, I say, 'You had a baby.''"

Can't. Stop. Laughing...
