Drew Barrymore is knocked up once again, with the actress already expecting her second child only a year after giving birth to her first. The actress/director and her husband Will Kopelman are ready for baby no. 2 only thirteen months after she gave birth to Olive Barrymore Kopelman, a rep for the 38-year-old confirmed with Us Weekly and E! News.

The representative for the actress had no immediate comment to give, he only confirmed the evidence that was clearly on show when Drew attended the the LACMA Art+Film Gala honoring Martin Scorcese and David Hockney on Saturday, 2 November. There, she sported a long, flowing gown - one that couldn't hide the fairly obvious baby bump protruding from underneath. The former child star may have hoped to conceal her bump, but she wasn't able to out-wit some of the more eagle-eyed reporters on the scene.

It may not have taken Barrymore and Kopelman long to get round to baby number two, but this shouldn't come as a surprise to many as the actress has made no secret of her desire to have a large family. Only last month the star appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, where she was quizzed on her family life and revealed that she hopes to one day have a whole brood of children and said she wants to get pregnant "right away." Looks like she wasn't lying when she said it either.

The former child star, who married art consultant Kopelman in June 2012, continued, "I grew up as an only child, and although that really works for some people and for some parents that's the way they want to do it."
