Drew Barrymore Talks Daughter’s Name on “Ellen”

Posted Thursday December 6, 2012 12:25 PM GMT

She’s been enjoying her new role as mother to her daughter Olive, and Drew Barrymore dropped by the “ Ellen DeGeneres Show” to gush about her little girl.

The “He’s Just Not That Into You” starlet looked lovely as she chatted with Ellen about where she got her baby’s unique moniker.

"I never would have guessed that would have been the name. 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 shot back, "It could have been the size of a peanut or a grapefruit,” to which Drew replied, “It could have been. It was a lot fruit and vegetables."

Barrymore added, “Will and I 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."
