We found out today that 38-year-old Drew Barrymore is pregnant again! This newest Barrymore-Kopelman family addition will be the second she’s had with her husband of over a year, art consultant Will Kopelman. Huge congratulations to the second-time mommy-to-be and her family! Drew gave birth to adorable daughter, Olive Barrymore Kopelman, a little over a year ago on September 26, 2012, which was just three months after she and Will married.
Reporters first took notice of Drew’s pregnant belly on November 2, 2013, when the actress attempted to hide her growing baby bump — under what can only be described as a couture mumu by Vivienne Westwood — at the star-studded LACMA Art + Film Gala in L.A. Drew’s “dress” had an awesome (if not super-distracting) print, but it wasn’t enough to throw them off her adorable ballooning belly. We’ll consider this night her big baby bump debut, intentional or not!
A second child is good news in many ways! Just last month, Drew revealed in the September issue of InStylethat two children might be her ideal family size, “I was an only child, and it was lonely. Some people love it and thrive on the independence, but I want my kids to have other kids around.” She continued, “Maybe two kids so they can run around life together, roll their eyes at their parents together like Rusty and Audrey Griswold from [National Lampoon’s] Vacation. So however that's going to come about, it's gonna happen!" And happen it did.
Though no one knows quite how far along Drew is, we can guesstimate that she’s at least 12 weeks pregnant because she’s showing. Baby Center (the real experts on the matter!) backs up this theory, “Generally speaking, first-time moms begin developing a baby bump between 12 and 16 weeks. Veteran moms start showing sooner, since their uterine and abdominal muscles have already been stretched from an earlier pregnancy.“
Given all of that, we’ll start taking bets on Drew’s due date, which we think will be mid-April or early May 2014!
