People magazine’s new issue features the first public photos of Drew Barrymore’s daughter, Olive.
The little girl, born September 26 of this year, is the first child for 37-year-old Barrymore and her new husband Will Kopelman.
In the cover story, Barrymore gushes about her daughter saying, “It’s like the biggest crush I’ve ever had in my life,” admitting it took some time to get used to her new role.
“I couldn’t eat or sleep for two weeks, I was just so nervous,” Barrymore revealed. She tells the mag she gained 40 pounds during her pregnancy and is just now working to lose them.
Entertaining her daughter with songs, or jumping up and down for her amusement, has been a much more important priority for Barrymore, who herself had a troubled upbringing as a child star.
Barrymore credits her husband, the son of former Chanel CEO Arie Kopelman, with providing a strong foundation for their family.
“For people who didn’t have the strongest families or traditional families, you can have a second chance. It just makes me so emotional because it’s like a miracle, ” Barrymore says.
