Drew Barrymore explains daughter Frankie's name
Drew Barrymore is a happy person. The actress welcomed her second daughter, Frankie, on April 22. She has another daughter, 19-month-old daughter Olive, with husband Will Kopelman. “My kid is healthy. I have nothing to complain about. I’m so blessed”, she told Adam Sandler while on Ellen DeGeneres’ show.
The actress is also content that Olive understands the big sister role she was given. “She really gets that she has a sister and she says, ‘Frankie, sister’. And she loves playing with her and she’s not mad about it at all yet. She’s all positive at this moment”, the actress explained.
Then she explained why the couple decided to not name their daughter Pepper. “Every [name] started sounding like a color or a food. Hazel’s a great name. No, that’s two shades of green. And I love the name Pepper so much, but we were like, ‘Olive and Pepper. Like that’s two things you find in a pantry’”, the actress joked.
But why Frankie? “It was just a name that came to my husband and I a few months before she was born, and we were sort of like, ‘I think this is it’. And then we gave ourselves room to change our mind, but we never did. My mother-in-law’s maiden name is Franco and I love her so much that it reminds me of her as well”, she said.
