Drew Barrymore announced that she is expecting her second child. Barrymore gave birth to her first child, daughter Olive, 13 months ago. Many celebrity choose to have their children close together.
Barrymore said that family and friends suspected she was pregnant for a while and she finally decided to come public with her pregnancy because she was tired of all the questions.
“Last time I never commented on it and people just stalked me the entire time,” Barrymore told People magazine. “So yes, it’s happening, it’s true. I tried to keep it a secret for as long as possible.”
She went on to say that she is very excited about expecting again and to be able to share the experience with her daughter Olive. She is also happy that Olive with not be an only child.
“I grew up as an only child, and although that really works for some people and for some parents that’s the way they want to do it … I want to be the Griswolds,” she said, referring to actor Chevy Chase’s family from the “National Lampoon’s Vacation” films. “I want the kids in the back rolling their eyes at Mom and Dad. I want Rusty and Audrey, theme parks and the whole nine.”
Barrymore did not say how far along she is in her pregnancy, when she will know the baby’s sex or if she has picked out any names for her unborn child.
