Drew Barrymore says Kate will be 'absolutely fine' as a mum-of-two

Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, will cope just fine following the arrival of their second child according to Drew Barrymore. When asked if she had any advice for Kate, the mum-of-two replied: "She's so full of grace I'm sure she will be absolutely fine."

The actress also suggested they have lots to look forward to with their second child, as she has found that having two children is "even better" than one.

Drew, who has two young daughters of her own with husband Will Kopelman, told People: "Two is even better than one. I can't believe it."

The Charlie's Angels star also revealed that two-year-old Olive loves being a big sister to Frankie, who recently turned one.

"She's great. She's awesome," Drew enthused.

The mum-of-two admitted that she is sometimes "overwhelmed" by the responsibility of watching out for her daughters' safety. However one thing she isn't worried about is getting back to her pre-baby weight.

"I think it's crazy to worry about that. It takes nine months to unbuild, at best," she said. "We just have to take pressures off. They're so silly and ridiculous. It took a year and I'm not even there, but it's fine. I'm so okay with that."

Drew, 40, recently said that she is enjoying taking a step back from acting to focus on her Flower Beauty make-up collection, which allows her to work more regular hours.

"Even on a work day I can wake up with my kids, go to work, come home, bedtime – there's a normal life there," she told More magazine. "And it's exciting when you have to go on a business trip, as opposed to a film when you're gone for months. I can't do that right now.

"As you add more onto your plate, particularly family, things have to fall off, or you won't be a good parent."

The actress also insisted that the troubles she had with her own parents when she was growing up will help her to be a better mother.

"I didn't really have parents, you know? And therefore the kind of parent I will be is a good, present parent. In a way, maybe that was a detriment to my youth, but it'll be the biggest asset to my adulthood."
