Actress Drew Barrymore is excited to be pregnant with her second child. She and her husband, Will Kopelman, are thrilled to be welcoming another child into the world. Drew says that they really wanted a sibling for their first child, Olive. In fact, Barrymore has spoken publicly about her desire for a bigger family than she had growing up, being raised as an only child. She said:
I was an only child, and it was lonely. Some people love it and thrive on the independence, but I want my kids to have other kids around. Maybe two kids so they can run around life together, roll their eyes at their parents together like Rusty and Audrey Griswold from [National Lampoon’s] Vacation. So however that’s going to come about, it’s gonna happen!
The actress says that during her first pregnancy, she never commented on being pregnant, and people stalked her the whole time. While she waited as long as possible before announcing her second pregnancy, she is commenting on it now, saying “yes, it’s happening, it’s true.”
On becoming a mother, Drew told Oprah Winfrey:
No words are eloquent and thorough enough to describe it… it’s like having the worst crush of your life. I drive home with heart palpitations. I just can’t wait to get to her [Olive].
