Drew Barrymore decided to reveal her pregnancy news when speculation she is to become a mum again reached fever pitch.
A representative for the Never Been Kissed star confirmed to People.com on Monday (04Nov13) that Barrymore and her husband Will Kopelman are expecting their second child.
Rumours first began when the star appeared to be hiding her stomach in loose-fitting clothing as she attended a Los Angeles County Museum of Art gala over the weekend (02-03Nov13), and the actress decided to confirm the news to avoid a firestorm of publicity.
Barrymore, who became a first-time mum to daughter Olive last year (12), tells People.com, "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...
"When I found out I was overjoyed. It always feels so surreal, it's incredible... (I'm feeling) incredible, that sort of here we go again feeling. And blessed. Blessed!"
