Drew's outing comes after she praised her ex-husband, Will Kopelman's new wife, Alexandra Michler.

Speaking to Dax Shepard on his podcast, Armchair Expert, on Monday, Drew opened up about her relationship with Alexandra, who is now stepmom to her and Will's daughters, Olive, nine, and Frankie, seven.

"This incredible woman Allie, I just feel like I won the lottery with her, like, I really did. I feel like I'm lucky that there's this new beautiful soul that came into our lives," Drew said.

"I'm just so lucky because she came into Will's life and got to know my daughters very well and very real, saw all the warts and all the hearts, everything in between," the actress added. "Literally was like, 'I choose you.' It's a miracle, and I know miracles exist because I was so devastated that our relationship didn't work out because I wanted this."
