Drew Barrymore is ready for another round of baby bliss!
The actress, who announced her pregnancy yesterday, reveals to People that, despite her best efforts, she wasn’t able to keep her bun in the oven a secret for long.
In an effort to beat the media at their own game, Drew made the big reveal about her pregnancy so that she could have a little peace and quiet before the baby arrives.
“Last time I never commented on it and people just stalked me the entire time,” explains Drew, who’s mom to Olive, 1. “So yes, it’s happening, it’s true. I tried to keep it a secret for as long as possible.”
Drew, who recently told Jay Leno that she was hoping to get pregnant again “right away,” says that the news hit just as hard the second time around.
“When I found out I was overjoyed. It always feels so surreal, it’s incredible,” says the star. “[I'm feeling] incredible, that ‘Here we go again’ feeling. And blessed. Blessed! You’re so lucky to get to do it. It’s such a miracle. I just feel really lucky.”
Drew says that, while she and husband Will Kopelman are thrilled about the new arrival, the new baby is also very much a gift to their daughter.
“We just wanted so badly for Olive to have a sibling,” she reveals. “In some ways, it’s really for her. So congratulations, Olive!”
While Drew says she’s feeling well, both mentally and physically, pregnancy is starting to affect one part of her life: her appetite.
“Oh my God, I’m eating everything!” she jokes. “I can’t get enough of Chinese food. It’s all I want to eat!”
