Drew Barrymore Talks Her Daughter Olive: 'She Really Has It Together' (VIDEO)
Drew Barrymore is head over heels for her baby girl Olive. And she has a hilarious story about how her and husband Will Kopelman came up with her name.
“I never would of guessed that would of been the name,” the actress said when she appeared on Ellen Thursday. “But I was reading a book with my husband. I was three months pregnant and they said your baby is the size of an Olive and that was it. We never looked back.”
And now that she has one baby, Barrymore appears to be ready for more.
“I will say Olive is a definite ambassador to having lots of babies,” she told Ellen DeGeneres about her bundle of joy. “I have met babies who are screaming and they’re crying and they’re trying to convey all these things and you get so terrified and overwhelmed. I’m very grateful to her. She really has it together. She’s really impressing me.”
“It’s awful,” she said. “I didn’t like leaving today at all. I dance and jump up and down for her a lot and I have this routine where I’m like, bye, ok I’ll be right back.”
Barrymore then continued to imitate her baby’s look and exclaimed “there is nothing greater in the world. I live, I exercise my right every second of everyday to make her laugh and smile and she’s a really happy baby.”
