Drew’s ‘food fantasies’

Drew Barrymore says her 40 lbs. pregnancy weight gain is “exactly where it should be”.

Drew Barrymore often “fantasises” about food.

The actress is expecting her second child with husband Will Kopelman, and says her pregnancy cravings are very different this time round.

According to the 38-year-old, Chinese dishes have become a new obsession.

“The [craving] with Olive was tamales,” Drew told E! News. “Anything tamale, I love tamales. With this little lovely lady it’s like pan-fried noodles from any Chinese restaurant. I drive by them and I fantasise about them. I find myself like pulling over a lot for food. Like the car just goes off the lane and over to the restaurant.”

Despite giving into her cravings, Drew insists the amount of weight she’s gained is normal for her. In fact, she gained 40 lbs. when she was carrying Olive, too.

“I’m keeping it in check. I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be. I gain like about 40 lbs. a pregnancy, which is totally fine,” she added.

The star certainly isn’t holding back when it comes to food – she even posted a picture of herself eating at Mulberry Pizza after the Golden Globes on Sunday. The picture was a big hit with fans, and Drew says it was all she had been thinking about during the ceremony.

“I was so excited that people liked it,” Drew laughed. “I didn’t know if they would because I was just…all night I kept turning to my husband and going, ‘We gotta go to Mulberry Street Pizza.’ Like, ‘I gotta eat a pizza! I gotta eat a pizza.’ I shoved two giant slices down my pie hole and it was the best thing ever.”
