Drew Barrymore Welcomes A Baby Girl!

Drew Barrymore is a mom! The actress and her husband Will Kopelman announced the arrival of their first child this afternoon saying,

“We are proud to announce the birth of our daughter, Olive Barrymore Kopelman, born Sept. 26th, healthy, happy and welcomed by the whole family. Thank you for respecting our privacy during this most special time in our lives.”

In February rumours that Drew was expecting started to surface after the actress was spotted out with a rounded belly. She didn’t however, confirm that she was pregnant until after her wedding in June when she was pictured cradling her growing belly on the cover of People Magazine.

Just last month Drew spoke to about becoming a mom saying,

“I can’t wait until I have my children.”

Still not sure what direction she wants to go in life. She looks forward to watching her kids do whatever they are passionate about.

“I love the idea that they don’t have to do something that they have no interest in, that they can do something completely opposite if they want to. I will be so surprised if they don’t want to do something involving food or wine or art, but I’ll be OK with it. I just want to build fun, great things for my family.”

Congratulations to Will and Drew!
