Drew Barrymore and husband Will Kopelman welcomed their second daughter on Tuesday.

The 39-year-old Blended actress told People magazine the family was ecstatic to welcome little Frankie.

"Happy to announce that today we are the proud parents of our second daughter, Frankie Barrymore Kopelman," the former child star announced in a statement.

"Olive has a new little sister, and everyone is healthy and happy!" she said.

Barrymore's first daughter, Olive, is now 19 months old and must be thrilled to have a baby sister.

Barrymore tried to keep her first pregnancy on the down-low, but said people still asked her about it.

For her second pregnancy, she was far more open about the new addition to the family by revealing the good news last November.

"She [Olive] definitely gets it," Barrymore told The Hollywood Reporter at the time. "She points to my stomach and goes 'baby.' How cool is that?"

When she revealed that she was having another daughter, the Wedding Singer actress said she was relieved.

"I'm relieved I'm having another girl. I have everything I need. It's all about hand-me-downs and room sharing and all that stuff," she told People in February about being mom to two little girls. "I'm pretty psyched about that!"

Barrymore spoke to Wonderall a few weeks ago about her second pregnancy, juggling work and her experiences as a mom to daughter Olive.

“They’re terribly different,” she explained at a Safe Kids Day event. “The first time you’re scared because you don’t know what’s happening. The second time is hard because you’re tired because you have a toddler.”

Barrymore acknowledged the effort it takes to be a good mother is daunting, but says she would’t change it for the world.

“It’s all so worth it and important,” said the former child actor.

Barrymore and Kopelman – Barrymore's third husband – were married in June 2012.
