Drew Barrymore Welcomes Her First Baby

Drew Barrymore Baby

She played a kick-ass, crime-fighting angel  in 2003’s Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, a journalist who goes undercover at her high school in the 1999 classic Never Been Kissed, and she has even played a woman with short-term memory loss in the Adam Sandler romantic comedy 50 First Dates (2004). But now Drew Barrymore is trying out a new role: that of real-life mother. Barrymore, 37, and her husband Will Kopelman, 34, welcomed a bouncing baby girl on September 26, People reports. 

The couple told People, “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.”

Barrymore is on her way to creating a whole new life for herself. First she wed Kopelman in June, now she is a first-time mother. Hopefully Barrymore is prepared for this new role — as there’s no rehearsal period for motherhood.
