8Look, It’s Drew Barrymore’s Kid!

Awww! Look at that baby! Look at that precious little angel baby! Look at its little eyes and its little nose and its little mouth! Couldn’t you just die?!

Yes, that’s the way I talk about my cats when people come over to my house, but right now, we’re just going to gush over little Olive here, who is pretty adorable, being a baby and all. And Drew looks so happy, which is just darling. I love this so much.

Here’s part of Drew’s interview with People:

Nine weeks after giving birth to her daughter Olive, Drew Barrymore is getting into the groove of being a new mom.

“I couldn’t eat or sleep for two weeks, I was just so nervous!” she tells PEOPLE in this week’s exclusive cover story.

Starting a family with art consultant Will Kopelman, whom Barrymore married last June, has meant everything to the actress.

“I really wanted a wonderful traditional home for my kid,” she says. “Will comes from a strong family, he provides a strong family … It just makes me so emotional because it’s like a miracle.”

Despite the overwhelming emotion of love, Barrymore, 37, says no one prepared her for the responsibility she’d feel after her daughter was born.

“You have the highest highs and yet you’re facing the biggest fear of, ‘How do I keep someone alive?’ ”

One of Barrymore and Kopelman’s favorite things? Singing “Good Morning” from Singin’ in the Rain to get little Olive to smile. Says the actress: “It’s like the biggest crush I’ve ever had in my life!”

I just love this so, so much. I wasn’t into that into celebrity gossip during Drew’s darker days – I think I was busy doing stuff in my mom’s uterus – but I think everybody knows that she had a rough time. And to see her go from that to being this successful woman with a strong, loving family is just wonderful.

Also, I still like the name Olive.

    Celebrity’s babies are a good money maker; People magazine pays for exclusive photos.

    .New Born Babies are such a priviledge and a miracle–and so dependent and adorably picking up mannerisms of their moms.
    I am so happy for you–and sorry for those mothers who may have thrown away famous babies–they were to glamorous
    and busy with their own pleasures to want–messing up their
    magnificient, illusions of themselves.
