37-year-old Drew Barrymore covers the current issue of People Magazine, along with two-month-old daughter Olive Kopelman. Barrymore and her husband, Will Kopelman, welcomed their first child on Sept. 26 after getting married in June. “I couldn’t eat or sleep for two weeks, I was just so nervous,” Barrymore tells the mag of life as a new mom.
Kopelman is the ideal father, she says. “I really wanted a wonderful traditional home for my kid. Will comes from a strong family, he provides a strong family … It
just makes me so emotional because it’s like a miracle.”
The first few months with her daughter have been extremely emotional for Barrymore. “You have the highest highs and yet you’re facing the biggest fear of, ‘How do I keep someone alive?'” she says. “It’s like the biggest crush I’ve ever had in my life!”
