Drew Barrymore is proud mum to two beautiful daughters, Olive and Frankie.
And despite a glittering Hollywood career, the star has been open about her struggle with her body image, particularly after becoming a mum.
The 40-year-old spoke candidly to Glamour Magazine about having to come to terms with her post-baby body, revealing “After making two babies, holy cow, does your body do some crazy stuff.”
“It’s hard to stay positive and love yourself,” she continued. “You feel like a kangaroo with a giant pouch; everything’s saggy and weird.”
“But you think how beautiful it is that you’re able to make children. When I lose sight of that, I exercise, read Dr. Seuss’ Oh The Places You’ll Go!, and then spend time with my kids.”
“Then I start to see things that are bigger than myself.”
The star, who is married to art consultant Will Kopelman, welcomed daughters Olive in 2012, and Frankie in April last year.
The mother-of-two feels very fortunate to have her own family unit, revealing to E! News recently “Marriage is great and the kids are the best. I know everyone says that you’re supposed to treat your spouse as equal as your kids, but I struggle every day of who I love the most. I love them all!”
Drew has also shared some sweet snaps of her little ones on social media. Here are a couple of our favourites …
