After what felt like FOREVER, Drew Barrymore has finally given birth to her first child, a lovely baby girl named Olive.
Drew actually gave birth on September 26, which was all the way back in last week, I’m surprised no-one found out about the birth which leads us to believe that Drew had a home birth. Actually, she WOULD have a home birth.
“We are proud to announce the birth of our daughter, Olive Barrymore Kopelman, born September 26th, healthy, happy and welcomed by the whole family,” a rep for the actress and her hubby Will Kopelman told Hollyscoop, “Thank you for respecting our privacy during this most special time in our lives.”
Drew had wanted a little girl all along, saying in the past, “I feel I’m sort of surrounded by children and I do feel I’m going to have a child at some point. Maybe a little girl. I feel it, but I don’t know if it’s going to happen. We’ll just have to wait and see.”
Drew and her baby daddy tied the knot in June, a few months after discovering Drew was pregnant, and after announcing their engagement in January 2012.
If little baby Olive is anything like a young Drew Barrymore in “E.T.” she’s going to be adorable!
