Back in October we learned officially that Drew Barrymore gave birth to a baby girl and today we get our first look at baby girl Olive. As you may recall, Drew never officially confirmed that she was pregnant thruout the entire duration of her pregnancy and only officially confirmed when she gave birth. Today, we get to meet the little girl on the cover of People magazine. Back in June Drew shared the photos from her wedding to Will Koppelman with People so it makes sense that she would share her baby photos with the mag as well. Wanna meet Olive? Take a look below.
Nine weeks after giving birth to her daughter Olive, Drew Barrymore is getting into the groove of being a new mom. “I couldn’t eat or sleep for two weeks, I was just so nervous!” she tells PEOPLE in this week’s exclusive cover story. Starting a family with art consultant Will Kopelman, whom Barrymore married last June, has meant everything to the actress. “I really wanted a wonderful traditional home for my kid,” she says. “Will comes from a strong family, he provides a strong family … It just makes me so emotional because it’s like a miracle.” Despite the overwhelming emotion of love, Barrymore, 37, says no one prepared her for the responsibility she’d feel after her daughter was born. “You have the highest highs and yet you’re facing the biggest fear of, ‘How do I keep someone alive?'” One of Barrymore and Kopelman’s favorite things? Singing “Good Morning” from Singin’ in the Rain to get little Olive to smile. Says the actress: “It’s like the biggest crush I’ve ever had in my life!”
Like it or not, Drew Barrymore does things on her own schedule according to her own rules. Despite being a fairly big celeb, she never succumbs to the pressures placed on her by the public. I guess having been in the biz since childhood and having successfully endured the darkest parts of celebrity, Drew has decided that she’s gonna do things her way. She clearly never wanted to share her pregnancy with the world until she gave birth. At this point, she is clearly ready to share. Good for her. This first look at Olive is just adorable. What a cute little darling. You can see more photos of Olive and her parents inside this week’s issue of People magazine. Take a look while you can, Drew might keep Olive on lockdown from here on out.
