Drew Barrymore: “I Am Feeling Very, Very Happy”

LACMA 2013 Art + Film Gala

While Drew Barrymore did not publicly confirm her first pregnancy, she is not remaining mum this time around.

“Last time I never commented on it and people just stalked me the entire time,” the mom-to-be, 38, tells PEOPLE. “So yes, it’s happening, it’s true. I tried to keep it a secret for as long as possible.”

Already mom to 13-month-old daughter Olive, the E.T. actress recalls the moment she realized baby No. 2 with husband Will Kopelman was on-the-way.

“When I found out I was overjoyed,” Drew shared. “It always feels so surreal, it’s incredible. [I'm feeling] incredible, that ‘Here we go again‘ feeling. And blessed. Blessed!”

She added: “You’re so lucky to get to do it. It’s such a miracle. I just felt really lucky.”

While the happy couple is thrilled, this baby is for their daughter’s happiness as well.

“Will is just thrilled — we both are — [because] we just wanted so badly for Olive to have a sibling,” Drew said. “In some ways, it’s really for her. So congratulations, Olive!”

And it sounds like she’s enjoying every minute of her second pregnancy.

“Oh my God, I’m eating everything! I can’t get enough of Chinese food. It’s all I want to eat!” she shared. “I’m feeling very, very happy. Happy and healthy — mentally and physically.”
