Drew Barrymore: Why I Got a Puppy While Pregnant
“When you’re pregnant, it’s just so different,” the second time mom-to-be told PEOPLE Wednesday in Los Angeles. “It’ll just be all about food and hanging out. Next year, it’ll be [a] fabulous bottle of wine and maybe something extraordinary.”
For now, the actress, who’s partnering with GODIVA to encourage fans to share photos of heart-melting moments inspired by her coffee table book Find It In Everything, is getting ready to welcome her second baby girl — with some extra special help from 16-month-old daughter Olive.
“She just really loves babies and kids,” says Barrymore, 38. “I have her in a lot of classes … I like when she’s so open-hearted to people and her surroundings.”
As for how she stays fit while pregnant, Barrymore reveals she hits up prenatal yoga classes three times a week — when she can.
“We don’t have a babysitter on the weekends,” she shares. “There’s a Saturday class that I basically have to turn my life upside down to get to and sometimes I simply can’t.”
Not that she’s complaining. By all accounts, Barrymore is embracing her hectic household.
“Our plate is so full right now,” she says. “I got a puppy while pregnant with the toddler and my husband [Will Kopelman] was like, ‘You are insane!’ I was like, ‘I am!’”
She adds, “I mean, let it rain. When it rains, it pours. That was my mentality.”
One thing she doesn’t have to worry about this time around? Stocking up on her baby essentials.
“I’m relieved I’m having another girl. I have everything I need,” she says. “It’s all about hand-me-downs and room sharing and all that stuff. I’m pretty psyched about that!”
