At the end of the night, Krasinski wore a special shirt in honour of his children, while thanking musical guest Machine Gun Kelly and the cast during his closing remarks. Krasinski shares two daughters with his wife and actor Emily Blunt, who he married in 2010.
`The Quiet Place` actor and director had the initials of his daughters -- 6-year-old Hazel and 4-year-old Violet stitched on his final outfit. The actor`s ensemble consisted of a Boglioli long sleeve and Missoni pants.
"John wanted to have his daughters` initials monogrammed on his shirt for SNL goodnight looks," his stylist Ilaria Urbinati shared on the Instagram story, adding the hashtag #Girldad.`The Office` actor, whose web series `Some Good News` was recently acquired by CBS All Access, tends to keep his children mostly out of the public eye.
However, he recently shared that his work is all about his family life. In 2019, he spoke at the Critics` Choice Awards about how his directorial debut `A Quiet Place` was a "love letter" to his family. In the film, which John also co-wrote, he and Emily played a married couple hiding from monsters that hunt by sound. Accepting the award for Best Sci-Fi/Horror Movie, Krasinski had said, "I got to make a movie about a love story and a love letter to my kids.
I got to do it with the love of my life by my side, so I`m pretty sure it doesn`t get much better than that. Thank you so much."Meanwhile, on the film front, the sequel to Krasinski`s hit movie `A Quiet Place` is slated to come out later this year after being pushed back from its 2020 release date due to the coronavirus pandemic.
