Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman knew they were going to name their firstborn Olive six months before before her Sept. 26 arrival.
"I never would have guessed that would of been the name. But I was reading a book with my husband, and I was three months pregnant. They said your baby is the size of an Olive and that was it," the new mom said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show (airing Thursday, Dec. 6). "We never looked back."
Host Ellen DeGenres joked that "it could have been the size of a peanut or a grapefruit" or even "a kidney bean."
Barrymore says she's fortunate that her 10-week-old daughter is "a good baby. I count my lucky stars every day because she is . . . really interactive and happy and like nice to people. She's a nice person."
"She is selling it," the star said of her daughter's cuteness. "She is working it! It's so great."
