Drew Barrymore: Meet my daughter Olive

Landing on the cover of a national magazine isn't that typical for a two-month-old, but other than that, Drew Barrymore's keeping it traditional when it comes to raising daughter Olive.

The firstborn of Barrymore and her husband Will Kopelman, whom she married in June, made her debut on the cover of People magazine this week. Barrymore and Kopelman welcomed Olive September 26.

"I really wanted a wonderful traditional home for my kid," Barrymore, 37, told the magazine. "Will comes from a strong family, he provides a strong family ... It just makes me so emotional, because it's like a miracle."

That feeling of surging joy mixed with immense responsibility has caught Barrymore off-guard, but there's no doubt that she's fallen head-over-heels in love with Olive.

"You have the highest highs and yet you're facing the biggest fear of, 'How do I keep someone alive?,'" the actress said. "It's like the biggest crush I've ever had in my life!"

    That's nice that she's very happy and and etc. A traditional home? I don't think so .... Let's deal with reality here.
    With the abundance of money and what mommy does for a living, this kid will not be raised in a traditional manner.
    She's fooling herself, sorry. Next ....

      I don't think that any of her marriages lasted more than a year, so I'd be shocked if this one did.

    I love that she chose the name Olive. It was also the name of her character as a puppy when she had voiced the role for an animated Christmas film. Congrats!

    I think Olive is actually a pretty name, which is weird since I think Apple is atrocious
