Look, 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.

Drew Barrymore Gave Birth to A Baby Girl!

You guys! Drew Barrymore had a little baby girl last Wednesday, isn’t that darling? The baby and Drew are both healthy and presumably overjoyed, Drew because she had her baby and the baby for getting to hang out with Drew Barrymore.

Oh, do you want to know the baby’s name? It’s Olive. Her name is Olive. Thoughts? For me, Olive is one of those names that sound pretty adorable, but I would still never give my own child that name. That’s fair, right?

Since I’m having trouble finding words for all of my feelings of admiration and goodwill for Drew Barrymore, I’ll let this YouTube tribute speak for me:

Love you, girl. I think about you, baby, and I dream about you all the time.

Drew Barrymore Got Married Last Night

From People:

A beaming Drew Barrymore, 37, tied the knot Saturday with her fiancé of five months, art dealer Will Kopelman, at her Montecito, Calif., home.

Designed by celebrity wedding planners Yifat Oren and and Stefanie Cove – who handled Reese Witherspoon’s country chic nuptials last March – the intimate ceremony was “a classic, simple, very pretty, garden-inspired wedding,” a source tells PEOPLE.

They were wed under a chuppah, and a rabbi officiated.

Guests included Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth, Jimmy Fallon and wife Nancy Juvonen, Busy Philipps and her husband, and Cameron Diaz. Most were also present Friday night for cocktails and rehearsal dinner at the San Ysidro Ranch.

Aww, now, isn’t that sweet? And it’s finally, officially confirmed that she’s expecting, too! Congrats on everything, Drew! Damn, a wedding and a baby! Is this what Snooki‘s aiming for? Because if it is, Snooks has a long way to go to even being a minuscule amount as classy as Drew was during even her David Letterman-flashing days.

Check out the photos of a grainy, blurry Drew and her new husband in the gallery.

Oh,and poor, poor Justin Long. I just can’t imagine how boyfriend is feeling this morning.

Did You Hear About Drew Barrymore’s Baby Bump?

It’s true! After some speculation a few weeks ago, it looks like Drew Barrymore definitely has something going on in her uterus, thanks to the help of her fiance. And I know what you’re thinking: “Jeez, Emily, is that picture of Drew the one that features the alleged baby bump, really? Yeah, you can really tell, dumbass.” And to that I say “BOOM, SIDE VIEW!”

So I’m going to say that she’s pregnant. If not, then she’s been knocking back some beers, because those are the only two things I can think of that cause you to gain weight specifically in your stomach and nowhere else at all. Wait, do her boobs look bigger? I can’t say I’ve ever been a student of Drew Barrymore’s boobs. Either way, I’m sticking to the pregnancy theory.

It doesn’t hurt that People also supports that theory:

She has yet to confirm if she’s expecting, but Drew Barrymore may just be letting her belly do the talking.

The newly engaged actress, 37, stepped out sporting a small bump on Tuesday in Los Angeles.

Barrymore’s busy day included a yoga class, picking up groceries at Gelson’s, visiting a fabric store for silk and of course, sparking baby speculation.

A rep for the actress had no comment.

Barrymore and her fiancé, art consultant Will Kopelman, recently returned from a Parisian vacation. And she’s got quite the sunny outlook these days.

As she recently told InStyle, “I’m super happy.”

I wouldn’t be surprised at all if Drew pulled a Jessica Simpson and didn’t announce her pregnancy until it was way obvious. She seems pretty low-key these days. The last time I even thought about Drew Barrymore was a couple of months ago when I went to see Big Miracle, that movie she did about those whales (loved it!), and then on the way home I showed my boyfriend my remarkable impression of her. Seriously, I do a really good Drew Barrymore. It’s all in the mouth.

But what do you guys think? About the pregnancy, not my impression. I’ll show that to you next time we hang out.

Drew Barrymore Does InStyle, is Probably Pregnant

Want to know how it’s a slow news day? When we talk about Drew Barrymore. Unless she’s getting back together with that sadsack, Justin Long. Or flashing boob on David Letterman’s show. Which, of course, hasn’t happened in eons, but hey. When you think of Drew Barrymore, what else do you think of?

What’s that? Grocery store tabloids that proclaim she’s pregnant? Yeah, me too. Lately, anyway.

Drew recently did an interview with InStyle’s UK branch, where she talked about her boyfriend-fiance person, and how happy she is. All in all, a pretty generic interview, but hey. Not every story can be a bombshell, you know.

Here’s Drew on living in today’s modern times: “I would love to slow things down a bit. We’re living in a time when we have such expectations of immediacy. Everything’s instantaneous, everything’s out there.”

And Drew on being happy: “Happiness is a choice. You have to choose it – and fight for it.”

And then Drew on the dude she’s pledged herself to marry: “He’s lovely… It’s really positive. I’m super-happy.” Referring to Will as her “boyfriend,” Drew adds, “For some reason, it’s still my favourite [word].”

So, meh? I don’t know. I suppose. I love Drew and stuff, and I’m glad she’s in a good space, but I was kind of hoping for something a little bit more than what she’s got going on these days – and all good things, of course. A quick-but-glitzy wedding, babies, and then, I don’t know, maybe some more boob-flashing on late-night television. Is that so much to ask? I really want to know.

Flashback: Teen People, November 1998

Photo: Cover of Teen People, November 1998

You guys! I’d totally forgotten about this, but I had a subscription to Teen People when I was in high school. I only kept one issue. Just one. But! It’s the 1st Annual Celebrity Style Awards issue! That means we can point and gawk at some of the dumb crap our favorite stars were wearing in the late 90s.

Here’s a look at the November 1998 issue:

I included a profile of “new talent” Paul Walker (check the gallery!), who will be appearing in upcoming movies like Pleasantville, Varsity Blues, and Brokedown Palace.

I especially recommend the photo spread titled “Hair Watch,” which focuses on bleached spiky 90s hair, as sported by the likes of Mark McGrath, David Boreanaz, and Seth Green. However, it’s the ladies—Sarah Jessica Parker and Jamie Pressly among them—who take the cake for dumbest 90s ‘dos.

I also included a scan of “Star Tracks” because A) I had completely forgotten about Jonny Lang, and B) how the hell does Lukas Haas know Vincent Gallo? I am not too sure Vincent Gallo belongs in a teen magazine.

Under “Star Woes: Their Most Embarrassing Moments,” Kirsten Dunst says:

I’m really proud of going on Jeopardy! and winning $10,000 for charity. But I was so embarrassed because I couldn’t get my buzzer to work right. Now people [who were watching the broadcast must] think that I’m the biggest ditz. I only answered like five questions.

I finally watched Kirsten’s heinous Jeopardy performance on YouTube sometime last year, and she’s right: I thought she was the biggest ditz.

From the article “Getting ‘N Sync”:

Five good-looking guys from Florida form a singing group, make it big overseas and then bring their catchy pop songs back home, where they instantly captivate the American teen market.

Hmmmm. Does this tune sound a little familiar? Yes and no. It’s true that, on the surface, ‘N Sync’s story certainly reads like Backstreet Boys: The Sequel. They have the same manager (Johnny Wright, also of New Kids on the Block fame), the same home base (Orlando) and the same secret weapon (a sexy blond—the baby of the band—guaranteed to melt the female masses). But spend a little time with the tight-knit quintet—James Lance Bass, 19; Joey Fatone Jr., 21; Chris Kirkpatrick, 26; Joshua “JC” Chasez, 22; and Justin Timberlake (the noted blond), 17—and you’ll find that they’re as different from Backstreet as Third Eye Blind is from Matchbox20.

Elsewhere, 98 Degrees is noted, but no mention of Nick Lachey anywhere. Another article, “Felicity Fever,” promises a too-in-depth look at “the set of the most talked-about new TV series.”

There is a centerfold of a movie poster for Meet Joe Black. I didn’t scan it, but I did scan the “Got Milk” ad starring Joshua Jackson.

Of course there are the 1st Annual Celebrity Style Awards: Jennifer Love Hewitt, Claire Danes, Drew Barrymore, Mariah Carey, Cameron Diaz, and Jennifer Aniston all get props, along with Jakob Dylan (remember him?!) and Aaliyah (sigh). I didn’t scan in the other two dudes because they are boring, but both Leonardo DiCaprio and Will Smith received accolades.

Also: holy God, Melissa Joan Hart can barely dress herself. Reese Witherspoon, however, always dressed with the trends and still managed to look cute.

Also: UGH. I really thought this was a fun idea—until I was actually scanning everything in, that is. I encountered some truly gnarly technical difficulties with the Kodak ESP 9250, so I hope you appreciate what I do for you.

Look, Drew Barrymore Directed A Best Coast Music Video!

Get More: MTV Supervideo, Music, Best Coast

Last night was a really bad time in my life. And I’m not talking “oh, I’m feeling kind of blah right now,” I’m talking “irrationally hitting things, calling my mom at 1:00 AM, finally passing out at around 7:30 in the morning” bad time. But in the midst of my woes, I turned on MTV, this was around 5:00 AM, and what did I happen to see but this magical music video by Best Coast. And as I laid in my bed of sorrows, I made a note to look into the video when I woke up so I could share it with you guys. Because you’re always on my mind.

As if the music video itself wasn’t enough, it turns out that the always lovable Drew Barrymore is the director! Plus, as if that still wasn’t enough, the video features some supposedly big time actors that I don’t know anything about, like Donald Glover, the guy who plays Troy in Community (never seen it) and Tyler Posey, the guy from the Teen Wolf show (will never see it), but, much more importantly, Miranda Cosgrove from my beloved iCarly and Alia Shawkat, the girl who played Maeby on Arrested Development! How can you not love it?!

Except do you love it?
