Drew Barrymore 'couldn't be better' after daughter's birth

DREW Barrymore "couldn't be better" after giving birth to her second child last month.

The 'Whip It!' actress welcomed her second daughter Frankie into the world with her husband Will Kopelman on April 22, and she insists she's feeling happy and healthy.

When asked how she's doing after giving birth, Drew told PEOPLE.com: "Great. I couldn't be better ... I'm really happy. Everything is just as good as it could possibly be."

Meanwhile, the 39-year-old star - who also has 19-month-old daughter Olive with Will - has been thinking ahead for her children and she's adamant they won't pursue a career in acting until they are at least 18 years old because she wants to protect them from potentially damaging things.

She said previously: "I don't like the idea of young girls growing up with social media, because I know how sensitive they are. But there's no going back.

"If you totally shelter your kids, that's not normal, but I don't want mine to have mobile phones until a certain age.

"I will never let my children act. When they're 18, if they want to, but not before."
