Will Drew's child grow up to be a wine connoisseur?

Drew Barrymore has revealed she can’t wait for motherhood!

The actress, who is expecting her first child with hubby Will Kopelman, is excited to become a mum and already wants to expand their brood further.

“I can’t wait until I have my children,” Drew told Haute Living magazine.

“I didn’t have a strong family dynamic growing up, but I’m about to start a family of my own.”

And the ‘Charlie’s Angels’ star won’t be putting any pressure on her children to follow in her showbiz footsteps.

“I love the idea they don’t have to do something they have no interest in, that they can do something completely opposite if they want to,” Drew added.

But the mum-to-be did admit she would be surprised if they didn’t follow her passion in, err, food and wine (not acting?!).

“I’ll be 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.”

Does this mean we won’t see a mini Drew hitting the big screen in years to come?

Drew became the latest in a long line of pregnant celebs joining a local prenatal yoga class, and has recently opened up her own wine label.

Fellow Hollywood starlet Natalie Portman is also loving motherhood so much that she’s taking a break from acting.
