Drew Barrymore: My dogs look after baby

Wednesday December 26, 2012

Drew Barrymore has revealed her dogs are protective of her baby daughter Olive.

The actress gave birth to her first child with husband Will Kopelman in September, and told People her dogs Douglas and Oliver are big fans of the tot.

She said: "They're so protective of her. They're so sweet. And Douglas, the little blonde one, just comes and licks [Olive's] head, and it's just so goofy and silly and I always say, 'Douglas, is this your baby?'."

Drew told how she and art consultant Will were careful when introducing baby Olive to the pets.

"We brought her stuff home to them to sniff and play with. I put her with them right away," she revealed.

"I was holding her and protective but there are all these wonderful studies that kids that grow up with dogs have better immunities because of the dander and the pollen. And it's a proven fact that dogs just improve the quality of your life."

Former ET star Drew also said she has labelled her daughter "Super Baby" because she eats and sleeps so well.
