Drew Barrymore ''can't wait'' to become a mother for the first time.

The actress-turned-director announced in June that she was pregnant with husband Will Kopelman, before revealing last month that the couple are expecting twins, and she is already prepared for her children to take on whatever career they choose.

Drew told Haute Living: ''I can't wait until I have my children.

''I love the idea that they don't have to do something that they have no interest in, that they can do something completely opposite if they want to.''

Although the 'Whip It' director expects her children to aim for a career centred on the arts or food, Drew just wants her kids to have fun.

She admitted: ''I will be so surprised if they don't want to do something involving food or wine or art, but I'll be OK with it. I just want to build fun, great things for my family.''
