Drew Barrymore on Second Pregnancy: “When I Found Out I Was Overjoyed”

New York City Ballet 2013 Fall Gala

Drew Barrymore is taking a new approach when it comes to telling the public about her second pregnancy.

“Last time I never commented on it and people just stalked me the entire time,” the mom-to-be tells People. “So yes, it’s happening, it’s true. I tried to keep it a secret for as long as possible.”

Already mom to daughter Olive, the actress says she and husband Will Kopelman were overjoyed to be expanding their family again.

“When I found out I was overjoyed. It always feels so surreal, it’s incredible,” she shares. “[I’m feeling] incredible, that ‘Here we go again‘ feeling. And blessed. Blessed!”

She adds, “You’re so lucky to get to do it. It’s such a miracle. I just felt really lucky.”

 The couple wanted their daughter to have a sibling to grow up with.

“Will is just thrilled — we both are — [because] we just wanted so badly for Olive to have a sibling,” she says. “In some ways, it’s really for her. So congratulations, Olive!”

As for any pregnancy cravings, Barrymore jokes she isn’t holding back .

“Oh my God, I’m eating everything! I can’t get enough of Chinese food. It’s all I want to eat!” she explains. “I’m feeling very, very happy. Happy and healthy — mentally and physically.”
