“We are proud to announce the birth of our daughter, Olive Barrymore Kopelman, born Sept. 26th, healthy, happy and welcomed by the whole family,” the couple tell PEOPLE in a statement. “Thank you for respecting our privacy during this most special time in our lives.”
Although rumors of pregnancy began swirling in February, Barrymore, 37, never said a word, preferring to let her June wedding portrait speak for itself. In it, her husband — an art consultant — gently cradles his wife’s growing baby belly.
“I can’t wait until I have my children,” the actress recently told Haute Living, indirectly referring to her pregnancy. “I just want to build fun, great things for my family.”
“Drew is so motherly,” a source told PEOPLE in January. “Will would like to be a dad. Family is so important to him.”
