Quotes:

“We are proud to announce the birth of our daughter, Olive Barrymore Kopelman, born Sept. 26th, healthy, happy and welcomed by the whole family.” – the proud new parents‘ birth announcement.

“[Olive] actually has made me a morning person, so she’s already made me a better person in every way possible. I’m like Godzilla in the morning. . . before I’ve had that cup of caffeine and with her, I sing her Good Morning with my husband from Singing in the Rain every day. She has the biggest smile and it’s the first time I’ve smiled in the morning. I love it!” – Drew on her darling daughter.

“When my daughter was born, I thought to myself, How do I go past infinity with my efforts and care? I asked my mother-in-law questions. I psycho-stalked all of the nurses with so many questions. I asked every single question. I’m a real stay-at-home mom. I’m really hands-on. Everything else became secondary.” – Drew on becoming a new mother.

“I definitely needed some time. For a solid six weeks, I was hiding like the Unabomber. Because I live my life in the public eye, and I didn’t want that for her [but ultimately I realized that] unless I move into a bunker underground, I don’t have a choice in this matter. It was something that took me weeks to cope with….I know she didn’t sign up for that. I had such an exposed childhood. I appreciate my journey, but I don’t want that for my kid. Not any of it. 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.” – Drew on trying to maintain a private life.

“I drive home with heart palpitations, like, I can’t wait to get to her. I think, ‘You know, is she gonna call? Will she ask me to spend the night?’” – Drew on the joys of motherhood.

  2. I love you as a loving, tender-hearted soul, Drew. Your daughter is so beautiful! I have a niece, Miss Olivia. She enjoys your Christmas story Olive, the Other Reindeer. I look forward that every year, myself. I hope you are having a comfortable pregnancy, Drew. Lucky you! I secretly hope it will be a son but a daughter for Olive to be big sister for would be cute, too. You are such an excellent mommy. I look forward to seeing you let loose in a meaty, psycho drama like the old Bette Davis type roles one day. Loved you in Charley’ s Angels and also Bad Girls or whatever that Old West movie was called …you were so hot in that one! Can you tell, I am a fan!
