Drew Barrymore on Her Post-Baby Body: “You Feel Like a Kangaroo With a Giant Pouch!”
According to Drew Barrymore, getting her body back into pre-baby shape has been no easy task!
“After making two babies, holy cow, does your body do some crazy stuff!” the 40-year-old star said in a candid new interview.
“It’s hard to stay positive and love yourself,” she added. “You feel like a kangaroo with a giant pouch — everything’s saggy and weird.”

After Drew married Will Kopelman, 38, in June 2012, the pair welcomed two daughters, Olive, 2, and Frankie, 11 months.

“You think about how beautiful it is that you’re able to make children. When I lose sight of that, I exercise, read Dr. Seuss’s ‘Oh, the Places You’ll Go!’ and spend time with my kids. Then I start to see things that are bigger than myself,” she told ‘Glamour‘ magazine.
