Drew Barrymore on Motherhood
In September, Drew Barrymore gave birth to her first child, daughter Olive. After many years of being in the spotlight and watching friends and family raise children, she has now taken the step into motherhood. Recently, she spoke out about the joys, fears and new experiences that she is dealing with since giving birth to her beautiful daughter. She thinks it is a fantastic experience, but feels slightly nervous for having to keep a small human being alive.
Barrymore told People magazine, “You have the highest highs and yet you’re facing the biggest fear of, ‘How do I keep someone alive?” She continues on to say “I couldn’t eat or sleep for two weeks, I was just so nervous.”
She said that she wants her child to have a strong family life stating, “I really wanted a wonderful traditional home for my kid. Will come from a strong family, he provides a strong family… It just makes me so emotional because it’s like a miracle.”
Since Drew Barrymore married the father of her daughter on June 2, 2012 in Montecito, CA, she will be able to raise her daughter within a loving family.
