John Krasinski Gave a Special Shout-Out to His Daughters During SNL Hosting Debut
John Krasinski had his daughters Hazel and Violet close to his heart
John Krasinski may have been away from his daughters while hosting Saturday Night Live for the first time, but they were never far from his mind.
The actor, 41, made his hosting debut over the weekend and starred in a The Office-themed monologue and a variety of sketches, including one in which he invented lyrics for The Office theme song.
Then at the end of the night, Krasinski wore a special shirt in honor of his kids, whom he shares with his wife Emily Blunt, while thanking musical guest Machine Gun Kelly and the cast during his closing remarks.
The Quiet Place star and director had the initials of his daughters Hazel, 6, and Violet, 4, stitched on his final outfit. "John wanted to have his daughters' initials monogrammed on his shirt for SNL goodnight looks ❤️," his stylist Ilaria Urbinati shared on Instagram Sunday, adding the hashtag #Girldad.
The ensemble consisted of a Boglioli long sleeve and Missoni pants.
Earlier in the episode, Krasinski noted in his monologue that Blunt, 37, was across the pond in the U.K, where they spent a portion of the coronavirus lockdown. Also during his monologue, the proud dad spoke about the moment he told his daughters he would be hosting SNL.
"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 recalled.
"So for me, it's like I'm on Paw Patrol. And they were like, 'What? You're on Paw Patrol?' And I was like, 'No, no, no, no.' And they were like, 'Call us when you're on Paw Patrol,' " he joked.
Last December, Blunt told Jimmy Kimmel that their family was living in London since August.
"[Violet and Hazel] have been in a proper school with school uniforms, and miraculously, they're sounding quite British, which I'm completely over the moon about," she said. "Someone sent me a video of [Violet] singing 'Jingle Bells,' and she goes, 'Jaingle ol' the woy,' almost like a Cockney. It was almost like Dick Van Dyke singing 'Jingle Bells.' The craziest accent ever—it was kind of brilliant."
