It's a girl for Drew Barrymore.

The "Big Miracle" star and her husband, Will Kopelman, welcomed their first child, a baby girl named Olive, Sept. 26.

"We are proud to announce the birth of our daughter, Olive Barrymore Kopelman, born September 26th, healthy, happy and welcomed by the whole family," the couple's rep said in a statement to People magazine. "Thank you for respecting our privacy during this most special time in our lives."

The couple wed at Barrymore's Montecito, Calif., home June 2. Wedding photos showed Kopelman clutching Barrymore's pregnant belly. The actress was recently spotted around Los Angeles with a growing bump and attending prenatal yoga classes.

Barrymore has been vocal about her desire to have lots of children.

"I can't wait until I have my children," Barrymore told Haute Living in August. "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. 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."
