37-year-old Drew Barrymore gave birth to a baby girl named Olive late last week in what was surely a stony and magical experience for everyone lucky enough to be in the maternity ward that night. She said in a statement (via Us Magazine):
“[My husband Will Kopleman and I] are proud to announce the birth of our daughter, Olive Barrymore Kopelman, born September 26th, healthy, happy and welcomed by the whole family. Thank you for respecting our privacy during this most special time in our lives.”
Drew did voice-over work for “Olive the Other Reindeer,” so maybe that’s where she got the name. If she was gonna working the Drew Barrymore movie character name angle, though, I personally would have gone with Julia Guglia instead. “The Wedding Singer” was some of her finest work to date.
