Drew Barrymore Reveals Why She Went Public With Pregnancy #2

Just last month, Drew Barrymore confessed she couldn’t wait to give baby Olive a little brother or sister. Yesterday her publicist confirmed the happy news that she was in fact pregnant—and adding to her family with husband Will Kopelman. Her confirmation came as quite a surprise considering she kept quiet about her first pregnancy, and never actually confirmed she was pregnant until she had her daughter Olive 13 months ago.

So why the change of heart this time around? Drew tells People, “Last time I never commented on it and people just stalked me the entire time,” says the mom-to-be. “So yes, it’s happening, it’s true. I tried to keep it a secret for as long as possible.”

Drew sees her second child as a gift to daughter Olive, ensuring she won’t be an only child, like Drew, which she’s described as “lonely.”

Drew says she will always remember the day she found out she was pregnant with her second as a miracle.“I was overjoyed,” she says. “It feels so surreal. It’s incredible, that sort of here-we-go-again feeling. I’m blessed. Blessed!”

I couldn’t be happier for Drew!
