Drew Barrymore Talks Pregnancy Weight Gain

Far from it, the US actress Drew Barrymore reveals she’ll carry on eating whatever she wants during her pregnancy

Drew Barrymore may be growing a bump, but she isn't bothered about gaining weight.

In a refreshing interview with talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, the soon-to-be mum revealed she isn’t going to stress about food and insists she’ll carry on munching whatever she wants even though her doctor has urged her to ‘pull back’.

‘I just eat everything I want, which isn't healthy. 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.”'

Drew, 38, who’s expecting her second child with actor husband Will Kopelman went on, ‘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.'

It’s reassuring to hear that the Charlie's Angels actress, who already has a daughter Olive, 15 months, revealing she’s happy just enjoying pasta without worrying over the pounds. She looked amazing at the Golden Globes too, after which, she Instagrammed a picture of her stopping off for a cheeky slice of pizza.
