Actress Drew Barrymore arrives at the LACMA Art + Film Gala on Saturday, Nov. 2, 2013 in Los Angeles.

Drew Barrymore, 38, is expecting her second child with husband Will Kopelman, her rep confirmed to both E! News and People on Monday.

The actress has been openly talking about expanding her family in interviews over the past several months. In an Oct. 8 appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, said she wanted more kids, “very much. Right away.”

“I want to be the Griswolds,” the actress said, referencing the family from the National Lampoon’s Vacation series starring Chevy Chase.

In the September issue of InStyle, the creator of Flower Beauty and Cosmetics also said, “I was an only child, and it was lonely.”

The mom-to-be says that although she enjoyed her childhood as a child actress, starring in the blockbuster 1982 film E.T., the Extra Terrestrial, she doesn’t want to push her kids into the spotlight.

“I had such an exposed childhood…I appreciate my journey, but I don’t want that for my kid,” the actress told Harper’s Bazaar last year. Her daughter Olive is a little over a year old.
