Drew Barrymore reveals what inspired her to name baby daughter Olive
Drew Barrymore chose her daughter's name when she was the "size of an olive".
The 37-year-old actress and husband Will Kopelman welcomed their first child into the world in September.
The 50 First Dates star has now revealed she was inspired to pick the moniker when she was in the early stage of her pregnancy.
"I never would have guessed that would have been the name," the Daily Mail quoted her as saying on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
"But I was reading a book with my husband. I was three months pregnant and they said your baby is the size of an olive, and that was it. We never looked back."
Ellen then joked: "It could have been the size of a peanut or a grapefruit."
Drew replied: "It could have been. It was a lot fruit and vegetables."
She explained that once she and Will had decided, they wouldn't budge from their name of choice.
"We were shopping a few [names] as all people do who are so blessed to get to do this. And then once the light was shed, there was just no turning back," she added.
