Drew Barrymore is a mom!
The actress and Will Kopelman welcomed their first child — a daughter — on Wednesday, PEOPLE confirms.
“We are proud to announce the birth of our daughter, Olive Barrymore Kopelman, born Sept. 26th, healthy, happy and welcomed by the whole family,” the couple tell PEOPLE in a statement.
“Thank you for respecting our privacy during this most special time in our lives.”
Although rumors of pregnancy began swirling in February, Barrymore, 37, never said a word, preferring to let her June wedding portrait speak for itself. In it, her husband — an art consultant — gently cradles his wife’s growing baby belly.
“I can’t wait until I have my children,” the actress recently told Haute Living, indirectly referring to her pregnancy. “I just want to build fun, great things for my family.”
In recent weeks, Barrymore had been spotted attending prenatal yoga classes and spending time with Kopelman’s parents, who were in town ahead of the birth.
“Drew is so motherly,” a source told PEOPLE in January. “Will would like to be a dad. Family is so important to him.”
