Now Barrymore and Kopelman have finally broken their silence on this matter to announce that, hey, guess what, they have a baby.
Their daughter, Olive Barrymore Kopelman, was born Wednesday, according to a statement the couple released Monday to People magazine.
Anyone well-versed in the Barrymore filmography may have had the same reaction that I did to the name Olive: Drew Barrymore named her child after the character she voiced in the 1999 holiday special, “Olive the Other Reindeer”?
It’s unclear whether that was the specific inspiration, but Barrymore, in a manner of speaking, definitely shares her baby girl’s moniker. Which is kind of cute.
Fine, maybe Gertie would have been a little cuter. But Olive is still sweet.
