Drew Barrymore‘s own heart just got a little bigger: her baby girl is here!
The actress and star of the upcoming comedy, Blended, 39, and her husband, art advisor Will Kopelman, 36, welcomed their second child on Tuesday, April 22, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.
“Happy to announce that today we are the proud parents of our second daughter, Frankie Barrymore Kopelman,” the couple tell PEOPLE in a statement. “Olive has a new little sister, and everyone is healthy and happy!”
After keeping much of her pregnancy with their firstborn, now 19 months, under wraps, Barrymore decided to take a different approach following her November announcement that she was expecting a second child.
“Last time I never commented on it and people just stalked me the entire time. So yes, it’s happening, it’s true. I tried to keep it a secret for as long as possible,” the Find It in Everything author told PEOPLE.
The mom-to-be — who confirmed in December that she was expecting another girl — stayed true to her heart-themed style through much of the awards season, but insisted pregnancy wasn’t the time to strive for perfection.
“You’re not supposed to look perfect while you’re making babies. Making babies is the perfection,” she told Women’s Health.
Instead, Barrymore took the time to enjoy her experience and indulge in her cravings — even if that meant a little extra weight gain.
“I don’t ever pose, ‘I’m just so fabulous and I lose it like that.’ I want to enjoy the pasta right now! What’s 10 lbs.?” she told Ellen DeGeneres in January.
But perhaps most exciting? Adding another daughter to the family.
“I’m relieved I’m having another girl. I have everything I need. It’s all about hand-me-downs and room sharing and all that stuff,” she told PEOPLE in February. “I’m pretty psyched about that!”
