It’s a Girl for Drew Barrymore!


Congratulations to new mom Drew Barrymore!

The 37-year-old actress and husband Will Kopelman welcomed a baby girl last Wednesday.

“We are proud to announce the birth of our daughter, Olive Barrymore Kopelman, born September 26th, healthy, happy and welcomed by the whole family,” the couple said in a statement. 

“Thank you for respecting our privacy during this most special time in our lives.”

Barrymore and art consultant Kopelman began dating in 2010 and tied the knot this past June at her Montecito, Calif., home and honeymooned in Big Sur.

They’ve kept news about the pregnancy under wraps; in fact, the actress never even officially confirmed that she was expecting.

She did share that she definitely wanted to start a family with Kopelman during an appearance on the Tonight Show.

“We’ll start with one,” she said. “See how it goes and if we could be so blessed…that would be wonderful.”

Wondering how they chose baby Olive’s name?  While it might just be a coincidence, back in 1999, Barrymore voiced the title character in the TV special “Olive, the Other Reindeer.”

(It just happens to be the most adorable Christmas movie in the entire world)

She most recently starred alongside John Krasinski in Ken Kwapis’ romantic drama Big Miracle.

Such an awesome gift for the newlyweds!
