Thank our current reigning God, Bea Arthur, that the celebrity trend of debuting their baby’s face on InstaWitter, FaceGram or TwitBook FOR FREE is temporarily over and celebrities are back to showing off their baby on the cover of a weekly magazine. Drew Barrymore waited 9 weeks until she put her daughter Olive in front of People’s cameras, because that’s usually when a newborn baby doesn’t look like an adorable bag of wet yams anymore. Drew also talked to People and said stuff about being a mom for the first time:
On how being a new mom made her so nervous that she went on the Anne Hathaway Oscar diet for two weeks: “I couldn’t eat or sleep for two weeks, I was just so nervous!”
On how she’s obsessed with her baby and is pretty much stalking her: “It’s like the biggest crush I’ve ever had in my life!”
On how raising a baby is a helluva drug: “You have the highest highs and yet you’re facing the biggest fear of, ‘How do I keep someone alive?'”
Drew Barrymore brings up a seriously good point that I’ve never thought about. I’m afraid of having chirruns, because most of them are greedy, shifty and it’s all about them. I mean, some nights you just want to be left alone with your bottle of vodka and they’re crying for food, love and human attention and all that. But I never thought about it the way Drew thinks about it. You have to keep them alive too! Babies are like a real-life Tamagotchi. You have to give them food and attention AND you have to keep them alive. Raising a baby IS hard.
