Drew Barrymore has shown off her nine-week-old daughter Olive to People magazine.

The 37-year-old actress spoke to the mag about the highs and lows of motherhood, and the support of her hubby Will Kopelman.

"I couldn't eat or sleep for two weeks," she told People. "I was just so nervous!"

The former ET child star married her art consultant baby daddy last June, and spoke of the importance of tradition in their home.

"I really wanted a wonderful traditional home for my kid," Drew said. "Will comes from a strong family."

Drew also admitted that nothing could have prepared her for the struggles of motherhood.

"You have the biggest highs and yet you're facing the biggest fear of 'How do I keep someone alive?'"

Despite these fears, the actress is over the moon in love with her newborn.

"It's like the biggest crush I've ever had in my life!" she said.

"It just makes me so emotional because it's like a miracle."
