As you may have heard, Drew Barrymore is pregnant again! Yay! Champagne pops all around! Confetti flutterings! Dove release! The 38-year-old actress is rumored to be about three months along with her second baby, while her daughter Olive just turned 1 at the end of September. Clearly, this mama is seriously in love with being a mama. So much so that this pregnancy is actually kind of for the child she has already. Drew even said, "Congrats, Olive!" when she announced the news. Talk about putting your kids first.
Drew told People: "Will is just thrilled -- we both are -- [because] we just wanted so badly for Olive to have a sibling. In some ways, it’s really for her." Aww! See, it isn't Drew who wants the baby, it's Olive! Drew's just doing her kid a solid. Just kidding. Obviously, Drew wants another baby. But she isn't the first mom to say that part of the reason she's having another child is so her kid can have a sibling.
Anyone who has a brother or sister knows that the sibling relationship is a special one. It's the person (or people) you spend the most time with, growing up. It's the person you bitch about your parents to. It's the person whose shit you borrow and never give back. Siblings are built-in friends for life. You may not always get along with your brother or sister, but they're a huge part of making you into the person you become. And that's kinda cool.
I think it's super sweet that Drew congratulated her little girl on becoming a big-sister-to-be. It shows just how much Olive means to her, and just how much Drew puts her child before herself. Congrats, Drew! And congrats, Olive, too!
