Marriage Diaries!

Culinary Queen

Drew & Will

Drew Barrymore gave birth to baby Olive and launched her Flower beauty line since marrying art consultant Will Kopelman, 35, in June 2012. But she’s also pulled off a miracle in the kitchen. “I’ve never cooked before!” she told People. “I didn’t want to be a mom who didn’t know how to cook for her kid.” In between date nights with Will, she’s honing her skills at home in L.A. “I couldn’t even boil water, and now I make, like, a three-day pulled pork,” she said. Adds a source: “She absolutely loves being a wife and mom.”

Major Nesting

Blake & Ryan

Since their top-secret wedding in Mount Pleasant, S.C., last September, the ultra-private Lively, 25, and Reynolds, 36, have treated their moms to lunch at Nobu 57, cuddled newborns at a Canadian hospital (good practice!) and focused on feathering their plush five-bedroom home in suburban Bedford, N.Y. Shopping at the St. Charles kitchen showroom in Manhattan, “they talked about spending a lot of time with their families and their passion for cooking,” says a source. “They seem to be very much in love.”

The Globe-trotters

Justin & Jessica

With his world tour later this year, word is that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel might be delaying plans to have a baby for a bit. But they’re enjoying bonding as a couple. After marrying in Italy last October, the pair hit London, Paris and Cannes hand in hand while he promoted his new album and films. At her man’s New York City concert in May, Biel, 31, sang along with every tune and “looked very proud,” says a source. Timberlake, 32, clearly appreciates the backup. “It’s nice to marry your best friend,” he recently told Ellen DeGeneres. “It suits me.”

Big, Happy Family

Matthew & Camila

Exchanging vows over Texas barbecue in June 2012 wasn’t the couple’s only surprise last year: In December Matthew McConaughey, 43, and Camila, 30, welcomed their third child, son Livingston. And somehow Matthew found the focus to lose 47 lbs. to play an AIDS patient in the upcoming movie Dallas Buyers Club. “The only thing the kids said was, ‘Papa, why is your neck getting so long?’ ” he says. Whether his family joins him on-set or they’re relaxing at home in Austin, with Camila at the helm, “I know they’re fine,” he adds. “It’s a colorful house for sure. Talk about personalities!”
