(LOS ANGELES) -- Drew Barrymore and her husband Will Kopelman are expecting their second child, the actress' rep confirmed to ABC News.
Barrymore, 38, has been open about her desire to have a big family.
"I was an only child, and it was lonely," she told InStyle magazine this summer. "Some people love it and thrive on the independence, but I want my kids to have other kids around. Maybe two kids so they can run around life together, roll their eyes at their parents together like Rusty and Audrey Griswold from [National Lampoon's] Vacation. So however that's going to come about, it's gonna happen!"
Barrymore also wanted to be sure that Olive, whom she told Jay Leno was "smart" and chatty, had a sibling close in age. When asked if she hoped to have a second child, she responded quickly.
"Very much," she said. "Right away, yes."
