Actress Drew Barrymore has confirmed rumours that she is pregnant with her second child with her husband, Will Kopelman. The couple already have a 13-month-old daughter, Olive.
Drew has said that she and Will are very happy as they wanted to give their daughter a brother or sister: "Will is just thrilled – we both are – [because] we just wanted so badly for Olive to have a sibling. In some ways, it’s really for her. So congratulations, Olive!"
There have been rumours about the possibility that Barrymore is pregnant again, and although she has concealed it until now, she always planned to reveal the pregnancy at the right time, unlike her first one: "Last time I never commented on it and people just stalked me the entire time. So yes, it’s happening, it’s true. I tried to keep it a secret for as long as possible."
Barrymore was a child star from a divorced family, and now on her third marriage, she is determined to keep her growing family together: "I will literally fight like a lion to keep my family happy and intact. Maybe I wouldn't feel that way if I'd had a great family growing up. This is my time for that, and I will never take it for granted."
