Just three months after their wedding on September 26, 2012, Drew Barrymore and her husband, Will Kopelman, welcomed their first child into the world, Olive Barrymore Kopelman. Drew was happy to tell Oprah what motherhood is like to her.

If you were to ask Drew, like Oprah did, What’s mother hood like to you, she’d say:

“The only word that came across my world was ‘indescribable,’ because I thought it was good in the way that no words are eloquent and thorough enough to describe it. And then the thing I’ve designed saying is: ‘It’s like having the worst crush of your life.’ I drive home with heart palpitations like I can’t wait to get to her.”

Drew’s great uncle Lionel Barrymore (who played Mr. Potter in ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’) would be proud of Drew, because she has made it her purpose to spend time with her family and when she spoke with Oprah, Drew went on to say that she wonders what her relationship with Olive will be like as they both grow older. Also when speaking with Oprah, Drew talked about overcoming her own troubled childhood. She also goes into detail about her remarkable 30-year career.
