Drew Barrymore was an only child, “and it was lonely,” she said recently, so she didn’t want that experience for her daughter, Olive, 13 months. Her wish has now become real – she’s pregnant again.
“Yes, it’s happening, it’s true,” she told US People magazine. “I tried to keep it a secret for as long as possible.”
“When I found out I was overjoyed. It always feels so surreal, it’s incredible,” she said. “[I’m feeling] incredible, that ‘Here we go again‘ feeling. And blessed. Blessed! You’re so lucky to get to do it. It’s such a miracle. I just felt really lucky.”
When the actress, producer and creator of Flower cosmetics went on the US Tonight Show in early October, she said she was ready to get pregnant “right away” if she could. And at 38, “I’m glad I lived such a full life before I settled down into a family because I got to enjoy it and get it out of my system,” she has said.
She and her art-consultant husband, Will Kopelman, whose 2012 wedding was “really one of those perfect days,” are thrilled, she told Tonight Show host Jay Leno, because “we just wanted so badly for Olive to have a sibling,” she says. “In some ways, it’s really for her. So congratulations, Olive!”
And she’s just running with her cravings.“Oh my God, I’m eating everything! I can’t get enough of Chinese food. It’s all I want to eat!” she said. “I’m feeling very, very happy. Happy and healthy – mentally and physically.”
