Stanley Tucci and Felicity Blunt have become parents for the second time to a little girl who was born on 19 April.

Stanley and his wife Felicity have decided to name their little girl Emilia Giovanna Tucci and she weighed 6lbs 6oz.

The couple announced they were expecting their second child together when they stepped out together at a New York screening and showed off Felicity's growing baby bump.

Actor Stanley Tucci is best known for his roles in The Hunger Games and Feud. The father-of-five already shares a three-year-old son called Mateo with his literary agent wife.

Stanley's other children from his previous marriage to the late Kate Tucci include 18-year-old twins Isabel and Nicolo and 15-year-old Camilla. Kate and Stanley were married for 14 years but she sadly died in 2009 after a battle with breast cancer.

Speaking about his newest arrival to People magazine Stanley joked: 'Hopefully she will have the looks and brains of her mother and one of my better personalities.'

Felicity is the sister of British actress Emily Blunt who starred in the 2006 hit The Devil Wears Prada alongside Stanley who played Nigel.

Stanley and Felicity married in 2012 after meeting at her sister's wedding to John Krasinski in 2010. The couple got engaged in 2011 and later celebrated their union at a star-studded bash with close friends including Meryl Streep and Steve Buscemi who was Stanley's best man.

Stanley and Felicity keep a low profile on social media and haven't posted any pictures of their new bundle of joy or given any in-depth interviews about becoming a family of four.

The 57-year-old previously joked following the arrival of Mateo: 'I believe he is mine. We are all thrilled to welcome him to this cold, cruel world. We are all thrilled that he is here and healthy.'

Speaking about his parenting style to Reuters Stanley revealed that he likes to joke with his kids and doesn't follow in the steps of the characters he plays in movies.

Comparing himself to Dill, from the film Easy A, Stanley joked: 'As a parent, it would be great if I could be as relaxed as these people in the movie are. It’ll never happen. But a thing that I have in common with Dill is that I do joke around with my kids. We laugh a lot. But again, I couldn’t let go that much — no way.'
