Drew Barrymore and her husband Will Kopelman welcomed a healthy baby girl into the world last week. The happy couple released the following statement: “We are proud to announce the birth of our daughter, Olive Barrymore Kopelman, born September 26th, healthy, happy and welcomed by the whole family. Thank you for respecting our privacy during this most special time in our lives.”
The lovely 37-year-old actress married Kopelman this past summer in a private ceremony on June 2. The couple had been dating since 2010 and were actively seeking to start a family together prior to exchanging vows. Barrymore has never been shy about admitting her desire to become a mom, although she has been very quiet about her pregnancy. In a very sweet and subtle move, she “announced” her pregnancy to the press by casually holding her ultrasound photograph in her hand as she walked to her car following a doctor’s appointment.
Barrymore plans on taking a break from being in front of the camera but will continue her work behind the scenes as she spends time adapting her new little girl to the world.
