It’s a girl for Drew Barrymore and husband Will Kopelman.
“We are proud to announce the birth of our daughter, Olive Barrymore Kopelman, born September 26th, healthy, happy and welcomed by the whole family,” the couple said in a statement. “Thank you for respecting our privacy during this most special time in our lives.”
In a recent interview with Hauteliving.com, Barrymore said, “I can’t wait until I have my children.”
“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,” she continued. “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.”
The actress, 37, and Kopelman, an art consultant, wed on June 2 at Barrymore’s Montecito, California home, according to People. She wore a custom Chanel gown by Lagerfeld, who said, “She knew what she wanted … and she got it. For someone who is pregnant she looked perfect.”
What do you think of the name Olive? How does it compare to the other celebrity baby names of 2012?
