– Barrymore married her longtime friend, art consultant Kopelman in 2012.
– They had two daughters together, Olive and Frankie.
– The couple announced their plans to divorce in 2016 and Barrymore reflected on her relationship in a 2023 interview, saying she was “the best I could have ever been” during their time together.
Drew Barrymore’s love story with art consultant, Kopelman, began in 2011. However, the couple, who had been friends for a long time, wanted to keep their relationship under wraps until they were ready to make it public. They got engaged in December of that year and tied the knot six months later in a private ceremony at their home in Montecito, CA. The guest list included A-listers like Cameron Diaz, Busy Philipps, and Jimmy Fallon, among others.
Barrymore, who was pregnant with her first daughter, Olive, at the time, wore a stunning Chanel gown on the big day. The couple welcomed Olive just three months after their wedding. Two years later, they had their second daughter, Frankie, in August 2015.
Unfortunately, their fairy tale romance came to an end in April 2016 when the couple announced their divorce after four years of marriage. They released a statement saying that while divorce may make one feel like a failure, life goes on. Barrymore opened up about the difficult time she went through during the split, saying that it was hard to go through something so personal publicly.
In a 2023 interview with Vulture, Barrymore briefly reflected on her past relationship with Kopelman. She sold her LA home and moved to New York to be closer to his family during their marriage, and she believes it is why she took their divorce particularly hard. Nonetheless, she remains positive about their time together, saying she was the best she could have ever been during that time.
