Hollywood actress Drew Barrymore has welcomed her second child. Drew and her husband Will Kopelman welcomed a daughter, a sibling to their 19-month old Olive. The good news came on Tuesday, April 22.
Their statement, issued to People.com read, “Happy to announce that today we are the proud parents of our second daughter, Frankie Barrymore Kopelman. Olive has a new little sister, and everyone is healthy and happy!”
The happy couple married in 2012.
They celebrated the upcoming birth on April 12 with a star-studded baby shower. Among guests there were Cameron Diaz, Gwyneth Paltrow and Reese Witherspoon.
Barrymore, who confirmed in December 2013 that she was expecting another girl, stayed true to herself through the awards season, but insisted her pregnancy wasn’t the time to aim for perfection.
“You’re not supposed to look perfect while you’re making babies. Making babies is the perfection,” she told Women’s Health.
“I’m relieved I’m having another girl. I have everything I need. It’s all about hand-me-downs and room sharing and all that stuff. I’m pretty psyched about that!” she told PEOPLE in February. “I’m pretty psyched about that!”
Instead, Barrymore took the time to enjoy her experience and indulge in her cravings even if that resulted in a little extra weight gain.
“I don’t ever pose, ‘I’m just so fabulous and I lose it like that.’ I want to enjoy the pasta right now! What’s 10 lbs.?” she told Ellen DeGeneres in January 2014.
