Barefoot and Preggers: Drew Barrymore Gets Married & Other Celebs Who Marry While Expecting

Yahoo Contributor Network

Drew Barrymore is now married and pregnant! The new Mr. and Mrs. Will Kopelman cover People magazine this week with Barrymore's hubby placing a loving hand on her growing belly.

"The day was perfect," the 37-year-old said of her wedding. She wore a custom Chanel gown for the nuptials, designed by Karl Lagerfeld himself. "Everyone we love and care about was there. It was as fun and meaningful as we ever could have hoped."

Barrymore is several months along and beaming. She hasn't really talked at length about her momma-to-be status, but her excitement is obvious. She's not the only celebrity to get married while pregnant, either.

Amanda Peet

Actress Amanda Peet was pregnant when she married David Benioff in a September 2006 ceremony in New York City. The pregnant Peet wore a custom Oscar de la Renta gown for the nuptials. The 140-person guest list included celebrities like Mark Ruffalo and Elizabeth Berkley.

She later gave birth to daughter Frances. The couple now has two daughters - their second, Molly, was born in 2010. Two is the limit for them, though.

"I'm really old," Peet joked to US Weekly of why she won't have another child. "I was like, we have to wait three years [to have another child.] And I was like, we don't have three years! We'll be too old at that point."

Alicia Keys

A six-months pregnant Alicia Keys married producer Swizz Beatz in Costa Rica in July 2010. The bride wore a Grecian-style Vera Wang gown with a 60-carat diamond headpiece.

Keys later gave birth to the couple's son, Egypt, later that year. They're still going strong.

"It's so fly," the singer told People of marriage. "There's something great about feeling at peace and ease with your partner and knowing you understand each other. I really enjoy that friendship."

Lily Allen

British singer Lily Allen suffered several miscarriages before she married Sam Cooper in July 2011 at St. James the Great Church in Gloucestershire, England. Allen was carrying another secret at the nuptials: She was pregnant!

Allen later gave birth to a daughter in November 2011. She seems to be quite happy these days, recently saying that hubby Cooper is "the love of my life."

Her daughter, named Ethel Mary Cooper, is happy and healthy, according to all accounts.

"Thank you for all the flowers and lovely messages everybody. Very touching indeed. nuff luv x x," Allen tweeted after her daughter was born.
