“I couldn’t eat or sleep for two weeks, I was just so nervous!” she tells PEOPLE in this week’s exclusive cover story.
She has also said that starting a family with art consultant ‘Will Kopelman’ just last June means everything to her.
“I really wanted a wonderful traditional home for my kid,” she says. “Will comes from a strong family, he provides a strong family … It just makes me so emotional because it’s like a miracle.”
Even though she is going through an over emotion of love the thirty seven year old Barrymore, she wasn’t prepared for the responsibility she felt after her daughter’s birth.
“You have the highest highs and yet you’re facing the biggest fear of, ‘How do I keep someone alive?’ “
One of Barrymore and Kopelman‘s favorite things? Singing “Good Morning” from Singin’ in the Rain to get little Olive to smile. Says the actress: “It’s like the biggest crush I’ve ever had in my life!”
