blurt (verb) say something without intending to say it or thinking carefully about it.
When you say something without the intention of saying it, and just on the spur of the moment, you blurt it out. 'The boy blurted out that he had stolen the book.' This means, the boy said it even before others expected him to say it, perhaps out of fear or nervousness, and not thinking carefully about it.
