They grow up so fast! Drew Barrymore took to Instagram and shared a few pics of the fun-filled festivities for daughter Frankie‘s 5th birthday party. The Santa Clarita Diet star, who is also the mom to 6-year-old daughter Olive, gave her more than 11 million Instagram followers a glimpse inside the celebrations.
“Happy earth day birthday to my girl. 5 years old today,” the 44-year-old captioned the collage of pics on Monday, April 22. “Thank you to all the amazing people and their teams who participated in a lovely and celebratory event! It was so much fun and perfectly fitting and some amazing treats and @lolsurprise for the kids that came !!!!!” she gushed, adding the hashtag “#HappyBirthdayFrankie.”
Fans of the proud mama couldn’t help but flood the comment section with sweet messages for the growing youngster. “Aw so fun! I hope she has a great day with lots of giggles and you can keep those tears from rolling. (My girl is 5 too) They’re getting too big!” one user wrote in response to Drew’s adorable post. “Happy Birthday to your little angel, I hope she has a super day,” said another.
In the pics Drew shared, Frankie and the guests can be seen doing arts and crafts, getting their faces painted and eating scrumptious treats. The party even included a certain special guest — Drew’s ex-husband and Olive and Frankie’s dad, Will Kopelman! In one snap, she held a post-birth pic in a frame while her former hubby excitedly smiled and pointed. Talk about coparenting goals!
Fans of the E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial star were crushed when she and Will, 40, revealed they were divorcing in 2016 after being married since 2012. Despite the fallout of their union, Drew and Will stayed dedicated to having to best coparenting relationship out there. This past December, the brunette beauty candidly opened up about her divorce in an emotional message on Instagram.
“Once upon a time … I remember reading an article that said I had gotten my happy ending after all. Looking at this picture, it sure looks that way. And then, like many times in life for all of us, our plans change and our dreams are adjusted,” Drew captioned a red carpet throwback of the two.
“But that doesn’t mean that every second wasn’t worth it. And if that DeLorean time machine pulled up every day, I would do it all over again. After all, I did get my dream. Two healthy girls,” Drew gushed. “Will and I continue to marvel at what we made and try to be the best co-parents we can be. It’s not always easy and the point is… nothing in life is. But it doesn’t mean that any bitter outweighs the sweet!”
Drew and Will are the best parents to their little girls!
