Whilst walking the carpet, Drew stopped to talk to a set of twins who were on the hunt for autographs and pictures.

"Just met these lovely Awesome twins in Berlin at #blended world premier ! #lovethem" Drew captioned the photo which showed her meeting the excited pair.

Also on Monday Drew's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show aired. During her appearance on the programme the 39-year-old actress, spoke about her sudden return to work to promote her new film.

"It feels like a miracle and it's also so awesome, I have to say," said Drew, of stepping out so soon after the birth. "First of all, I love this movie and I would never not show up for it, and I feel so good and happy. My kid is healthy. I have nothing to complain about. I'm so blessed."

Drew also revealed that her eldest child — 20-month-old daughter Olive — had happily welcomed baby Frankie into the family.


"She really gets that she has a sister and she says, 'Frankie, sister'," said Drew. "She loves playing with her and she's not mad about it at all, yet. It's all positive at this moment."

Speaking about how she and her art consultant husband Will Kopelman had chosen the name Frankie, Drew explained: "It came to my husband and I about a few months before she was born and it was just sort of like, 'I think this is it,' and then we gave ourselves the room to change our minds but we never did.

"Not the most interesting story," she said, to which funnywoman Ellen quipped: "No, it's really not."

"And my mother-in-law's maiden name is Franco and I love her so much so it reminds me of her as well," laughed Drew.

Blended is in cinemas in the UK on 23 May.
