Drew Barrymore’s rep has confirmed to E! News that the actress is expecting her second child with husband Will Kopelman.
Rumors began circulating when the 38-year-old stepped out with a noticeable bump alongside her hubby and the couple’s 1-year-old daughter Olive on Sunday in West Hollywood.
The former child star recently told Jay Leno on the “Tonight Show” that she “very much” wanted to have another baby and a sibling for Olive. “I grew up as an only child,” she said, “and although that really works for some people and for some parents that’s the way they want to do it.”
The actress, who comes from a prestigious acting family and started her career at the age of 1, has said that she has no plans to raise her children in the spotlight.
“I had such an exposed childhood…I appreciate my journey, but I don’t want that for my kid, not any of it,” the star told Harper’s Bazaar in a January interview. “It has nothing to do with whether I liked my childhood. I really did. But as a parent, that isn’t the childhood that I’d provide.”
The second-time parents-to-be married in June of last year and Drew gave birth to Olive on September 26, 2012. There’s no word yet on when this baby is due.
