Drew Barrymore‘s own heart just got a little bigger: her baby girl is here!

The actress and star of the upcoming comedy, Blended, 39, and her husband, art advisor Will Kopelman, 36, welcomed their second child on Tuesday, April 22, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

“Happy to announce that today we are the proud parents of our second daughter, Frankie Barrymore Kopelman,” the couple tell PEOPLE in a statement. “Olive has a new little sister, and everyone is healthy and happy!”

After keeping much of her pregnancy with their firstborn, now 19 months, under wraps, Barrymore decided to take a different approach following her November announcement that she was expecting a second child.

“Last time I never commented on it and people just stalked me the entire time. So yes, it’s happening, it’s true. I tried to keep it a secret for as long as possible,” the Find It in Everything author told PEOPLE.

Kelly Clarkson Puts a Ribbon on It in Rare Baby-Bump Pic

Won’t be long now!

Kelly Clarkson, who’s expecting a baby girl with husband Brandon Blackstock, made a rare public appearance on Sunday — and showed off her growing baby bump.

The singer, 31, who is now about 30 weeks along, even accentuated her pregnancy by wearing a salmon-colored shirt with a black-and-white ribbon on the front.

“Happy Easter everybody! We celebrated on the lake today. Loving the sun, family and friends!” she wrote on Twitter.

Clarkson has been keeping a low profile in recent months, mostly staying out of the spotlight save for the occasional photo on Twitter.

She appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show back in December, where she revealed that she and her husband already had a baby name picked out (this was before she even knew she was having a girl) and said it hadn’t been a great pregnancy to that point.

After finding out it’s a girl, she wrote on Twitter: “I knew it! Only a girl could cause this much drama with all this vomiting ha!”

There’s No Doubt about it: Gwen Stefani is one of Hollywood’s most stylish moms.

And like every smart fashionista, she knows there’s no shame in repeating outfits.

That’s why we weren’t surprised when Stefani, 44, stepped out on April 13 and April 14 in sky-high heels paired with the black version of the HATCH Collection jumpsuit she wore while pregnant with son Apollo Bowie Flynn.

The new mom, who welcomed her little boy on Feb. 28, first wore the denim version with black booties last November.

Now that’s what we call versatile maternity wear.

Also not surprising? Stefani rocking out during a surprise performance with Pharrell Williams at Coachella the same weekend — her first public appearance since giving birth.

At five months pregnant, Savannah Guthrie is already learning about the wonders of maternity wear.

“I did discover maternity jeans, and I’m going to be writing a song to maternity jeans later — it’s forthcoming off my upcoming album — called ‘Exhale,’ ” she joked to PEOPLE at The Hollywood Reporter’s 35 Most Powerful People in Media party Wednesday.

Sure, stretchy clothes are a pregnancy perk, but the Today show host knows the child she’s carrying is the real blessing.

“I just can’t wait to meet this little baby. I wonder all the time, ‘Who are you?’ ‘What are you going to be like?’ ” she said “I just feel it’s such a privilege to get a chance to raise a little human being, and I hope we do it well.”
