After three years of marriage, Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman are splitting. “Sadly our family is separating legally, although we do not feel this takes away from us being a family,” they said.
“Divorce might make one feel like a failure, but eventually you start to find grace in the idea that life goes on.”
They have two little girls, Olive, 3, and Frankie, 1.
“Our children are our universe, and we look forward to living the rest of our lives with them as the first priority.”
“Honestly, I don’t know how it is for other couples but really I like watching him be a father. I know everyone says you’re supposed to put your coupledom first. But I really love it being all about the kids. Maybe that’s my compensating for not having parents myself or a childhood but right now, the focus is about how we’re figuring things out as parents,” she told People.
In an interview with InStyle she said, “It was never really love at first sight. He was someone who was always reachable on the phone, someone who was a classy human being, someone who has this incredible blueprint of a family that I don’t have.”
