Will Kopelman (43) got married again last month and his ex-wife Drew Barrymore (46) is overjoyed about it. The actress even calls the new stepmother of her two daughters “a lottery ticket” in podcast ‘Armchair Expert’.
“She knows I’m her biggest fan, but I try to give them some space”
When her ex-husband came up, Drew said, “He just remarried to the most amazing woman. An incredible woman, Allie. I’m lucky to have such a beautiful person in our lives.”
The presenter says that she has to hold back not to want to become best friends with her ex’s new wife. “She knows I’m her biggest fan, but I try to give them some space,” she laughs.
Drew and Will married in 2012 and separated four years later. Their daughters Olive and Frankie are now 9 and 7 years old. “It was so beautiful that she came into Will’s life and got to know my daughters so well. She immediately saw all the beautiful and all the less beautiful and chose him,” said Drew, who says she regularly hangs out with the couple. “We have dinners with the kids, and birthdays. We might all go on a trip together. We’re trying to find our way through this, slowly and respectfully towards each other.”
