A little over a month before announcing they're expecting their second child, Drew Barrymore and husband Will Kopelman keep busy with daughter Olive, 13 months, during a Sept. 28 trip to N.Y.C.'s Central Park. "I was an only child, and it was lonely," she hinted to InStyle that month. "Some people love it and thrive on the independence, but I want my kids to have other kids around."
SO HAPPY TOGETHER
Three's company for this growing family, who share plenty of laughs on a Sept. 20 walk through New York City. "I will literally fight like a lion to keep my family happy and intact," she told Good Housekeeping earlier in the year.
WHAT'S IN STORE?
A HOLD ON YOU
The actress keeps her hands full with baby Olive, 6 months, on an April 7 mommy-daughter date in Los Angeles. "My first goal is to show [Olive] E.T. – I cannot wait until she's old enough," she told Allure in its January issue. "And then Ever After because I want her to see that you can rescue yourself."
AWAY WE STROLL
Barrymore and Kopelman take parenthood one step at a time with little Olive on a chilly Jan. 20 outing in N.Y.C. "I'm finally a part of a family, and it's a miracle," Barrymore, who gave birth just three months after tying the knot, told Allure that month.
Nine weeks after welcoming her daughter, Barrymore introduces Olive to the world in a December cover story in PEOPLE. Her segue into parenthood comes with "the highest highs, and yet you're facing the biggest fear of, 'How do I keep someone alive?'" she says, adding, "It's like the biggest crush I've ever had in my life."
