"We are proud to announce the birth of our daughter, Olive Barrymore Kopelman, born September 26th, healthy, happy and welcomed by the whole family," the couple says in a statement.  "Thank you for respecting our privacy during this most special time in our lives."

Barrymore and art consultant Kopelman began dating in 2010 and became engaged in January. An insider told Us Weekly the actress was set on saying "I do" before the baby arrived in the fall. "They have been trying to get pregnant," one source shared. "That's why they got engaged . . . They are very happy! She's ready to settle down and be a mom."
