Parenting together can be challenging.

This is a brand new interview Parents magazine’s April 2022 issue, Drew Barrymore was asked about the hardest part of co-parenting. “You miss them when you’re apart,” the actress said about her daughters Olive9 and Frankie, 7, whose dad is Barrymore’s ex-husband Will Kopelman“Because that was not the plan.”

Barrymore admitted that there are upsides, however: “Both parents receive a day off.”

Throughout the interview, Barrymore gave glimpses inside her family’s private world, including a parenting win (“getting my daughter Olive to help me loadAnd unload the dishwasher”) and miss (“losing it when Olive tried to tell me how to drive”). She also shared which of her movies her kids are allowed to watching, saying, “They’ve already seen Ever After: A Cinderella Story and 50 First Dates.”

Barrymore and Kopelman wed in 2012, and in 2016, they announced they were divorcing, finalizing their split later that year.
