Drew Barrymore: “I’m Bigger” This Pregnancy

During a Monday appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, expectant mama Drew Barrymore opened up about daughter Olive, 15 months, and her second pregnancy.

“I just eat everything I want, which isn’t healthy,” said the actress, 38, who’s expecting her second daughter with husband Will Kopelman this spring. “I’m bigger this time than my first time. My doctor the other day was like, ‘Yeah, so I think maybe pull back. A little bit.’ “

She added: “I was like, really? I thought I was doing great. I still fit into those jeans — they hurt when I wear them — but I still fit into them. I don’t ever pose, ‘I’m just so fabulous and I lose it like that.’ I want to enjoy the pasta right now! What’s 10 lbs.?”

When Ellen says pregnant women should feel free to eat anything they like, Drew agrees: “When I’m twirling those vegetable pan fried noodles from Chinese takeout later, I’m going to say, ‘Ellen said that it was way okay to do that!’”

Ellen then jokes, “You’re going to be fatter than this, but …” to which Drew quips, “It’s true! I’m not done. I’m seeing my doctor tomorrow and I’m going to tell her you said that.”

As for the ‘fat joke‘ at the People’s Choice Awards, Ellen explained, “I told this joke, but I don’t know if it translated because we were laughing our butts off backstage,” she said. “But now we’re laughing again so it all comes full circle! I haven’t seen you in a while and instead of saying, ‘Oh, you’re pregnant,’ I just thought it would be funny to say, ‘God, you’re fat.’”

The Blended actress — who is currently enjoying her second trimester — brought along her daughter Olive, whom we saw backstage.

“She can do every animal noise — we’re up to 26 animals. It’s amazing!” Drew gushed of her baby girl. “Camel is her favorite and crocodile and snake. She does it all — I’m telling you, she’s bright!”
