Newton-bred actor, writer, and Esurance spokesguy John Krasinski is a dad. He tweeted on Sunday: “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!” Krasinski’s wife is actress Emily Blunt. . . . Singer Christina Aguilera is engaged to Rhode Islander Matthew Rutler. The two (at right)
met while working on the 2010 film “Burlesque.” Before meeting Aguilera, Rutler was a production assistant on a bunch of locally-made films including “The Town,” “Edge of Darkness,” “Surrogates,” and “The Proposal.” Like Krasinski, Aguilera used social media to make her big announcement. She posted a pic of her engagement ring on Instagram on Friday.
