Actress Drew Barrymore is pregnant with her second child.

The Charlie’s Angels star and her husband Will Kopelman became first-time parents to daughter Olive last year, and her representative has confirmed to that they are set to expand their family.

Editors at first broke the news on Monday, after Barrymore appeared to be hiding her stomach in loose-fitting clothing as she stepped out over the weekend at a Los Angeles County Museum of Art gala, where she posed for photos wearing a long, flowing dress.

Barrymore has made no secret of her desire to have more children – last month, she told talk show host Jay Leno she “very much” wanted another baby, joking she wanted to get pregnant “right away”.

The pregnancy news emerges just days after Barrymore and art consultant Kopelman managed to offload their marital home in Montecito, California. The six-bedroom property, where the couple wed in June, 2012, was reportedly sold for $6.35 million last Wednesday, $1.15 million below their asking price.
