Drew Barrymore is pregnant with her second child, according to E! News.

Well, I guess now we know who to blame for this overpopulation mess we're in.

Barrymore and her husband Will Kopelman already have 1-year-old daughter Olive, who was born Sept. 3, 2012. The 38-year-old actress has said she wants to expand her family. During an appearance on "The Tonight Show" last month, she said she wanted to make Olive a sibling.

"I grew up as an only child," she said, "and although that really works for some people and for some parents that's the way they want to do it."

The former child star told Harper's Bazaar her kids won't be following in her footsteps if she can help it.

"I had such an exposed childhood. ... I appreciate my journey, but I don't want that for my kid," Barrymore said. "Not any of it. It has nothing to do with whether I liked my childhood. I really did. But as a parent, that isn't the childhood that I'd provide."

Barrymore told Good Housekeeping the best part about being a mom is "just what a better person it makes you on a daily basis. Every morning when I wake her up, the endgame is, 'Can I get her to smile?' And that puts me in a good mood. It's definitely a different way to live -- and a much better one."
