Drew Barrymore covers the February issue of Marie Claire while opening up about her husband Will Kopelman and their 15-month-old daughter Olive.
Despite currently being pregnant with her second child, Barrymore is thinking of having a third baby.
“I think I’d like to have more. In the back of my head, I’m already timing if I was to have another when that would occur,” the actress reveals.
Barrymore admits she has developed a love of cooking since being pregnant with daughter Olive.
”I looooove cookbooks. I cook a lot when I’m pregnant. When I got pregnant the first time, I couldn’t even boil water. Now I can make the most spectacular slow-roasted pork tacos you will ever have, an incredible verde sauce with ancho chilies—so f-cking good. [And I just learned to make] a Greek yogurt pie with lemon zest and pepper filling on a gingersnap crust with black seedless grape compote. Amazing!” she told.
Becoming admits becoming a mom made more empathic towards her own mom, but unfortunately it hasn’t improved their relationship.
“Ugh, I mean, my relationship with my mom is so complicated. I’ve always been empathetic toward my mom, and I was even more so when I had a kid and we had a really amazing conversation about it. However, [becoming a mom] hasn’t enabled me to lessen the distance. It’s the hardest subject in my life. I’ve never just been angry with her. I’ve always felt guilt and empathy and utter sensitivity. But we can’t really be in each other’s lives at this point,” she confided.
Although, the proud mom has a strong relationship with her husbands family.
”This is so safe and positive and healthy because they have their values intact. It was huge for me. And that’s what I want for my family. Sometimes whom you least expect is the person you fall for. It was a combination of moments: watching her with my nephew. Traveling with her. Going to museums with her. I knew, adding them up, this was it,” she admits.
