Just hours after a rep for Drew Barrymore confirmed that she and husband Will Kopelman are expecting their second child, the actress herself is going on the record.

Barrymore tells “People” that the reason for opening up about the pregnancy is simple: she’s hoping the paparazzi will leave her alone.

“Last time I never commented on it and people just stalked me the entire time,” she said. “So yes, it’s happening, it’s true. I tried to keep it a secret as long as possible.”

The “Charlie’s Angels” actress added that she and Kopelman are “overjoyed” to give their daughter, 13-month-old Olive, a little brother or sister.

“Will is just thrilled – we both are – [because] we just wanted so badly for Olive to have a sibling,” she added to “People.” “In some ways, it’s really for her. So congratulations, Olive!”
