Drew Barrymore isn’t tight-lipped about her second pregnancy, and the actress has good reason not to be.

“When I found out I was overjoyed. It always feels so surreal, it’s incredible,” the “Big Miracle” actress told People just after confirming that she and husband Will Kopelman were expecting their second child.

"[I’m feeling] incredible, that ‘Here we go again’ feeling. And blessed. Blessed!” the 38-year-old said. “You’re so lucky to get to do it. It’s such a miracle. I just felt really lucky.”

She added that she’s also feeling “very, very happy. Happy and healthy — mentally and physically.”

It’s unclear how far along she is, but the former child star is already sporting a tiny pregnancy curve and confirmed the news just 13 months after giving birth to her first child — a girl named Olive — on Sept. 26, 2012.

Indeed, the bubbly Flower Cosmetics founder is taking a different approach to maternity in the media this time around too.

“Last time I never commented on it and people just stalked me the entire time,” she said. “So yes, it’s happening, it’s true. I tried to keep it a secret for as long as possible.”

But sooner or later, that bump’s gotta give...
