After four years of marriage, Barrymore, 47, and Kopelman divorced in 2016, multiple source confirmed to PEOPLE at the time.

In August 2021, Kopelman married the Vogue director of fashion development in Massachusetts, where Olive and Frankie acted as flower girls during the ceremony.

For Halloween 2021, Barrymore shared on her daytime talk show that she spent the holiday with her ex, their daughters and his new wife.

"I went trick-or-treating on Sunday with Will and his beautiful wife Allie, my daughters' wonderful stepmother. I think, honestly, this is so ideal. It is the dream. And I love seeing this, I really do. It's very positive," Barrymore said at the time.

In October 2015, Barrymore spoke to PEOPLE about how much she enjoys watching Kopelman with their two little ones.

"Honestly, I don't know how it is for other couples but really I like watching him be a father," Barrymore said. "I know everyone says you're supposed to put your coupledom first. But I really love it being all about the kids. Maybe that's my compensating for not having parents myself or a childhood but right now, the focus is about how we're figuring things out as parents."
