Drew Barrymore shares the first photo of daughter FrankieShe may be just a few weeks old, but Frankie Kopelman is ready for her close-up. Drew Barrymore shares the first photos of her new little girl in this week's issue of People, which also features family pics of Drew's husband, Will Kopelman, and their eldest daughter, Olive."I knew that I have two kids to take care of now and just kicked my own butt to get back into the swing of things immediately," says the 39-year-old, whose non-mom titles include actress, screenwriter, producer, author and makeup collection maven. While her jam-packed professional life sounds like a balancing act, Drew tells People that being a mother of two kids comes with plenty of challenges, too."Just being split. They're awake and asleep at different times, or awake at the same time, and it's a juggling act a little bit," she says.Drew, who married her art consultant hubby in 2012, adds that it was important to her that Olive "have a sibling, because I really would have liked that in my life." Now that Frankie's arrived, she has other motherhood priorities: "Always being on time, being there when I say I'm going to be there. Creating a real stable home. I know when my daughter wants to swing higher and jump into the pool and all of these things, she feels safe. To make your kids feel safe is everything." If there's one place both Olive and Frankie are likely to feel safe as they grow up, it's the movie theater -- although Drew wasn't sure she'd continue to act after Olive was born. "I didn't think I could go back to work honestly," says Drew, whose new comedy, "Blended," starring Adam Sandler, hits theaters Friday. "I didn't want to be away from my kids and it just wasn't the priority. With Adam, he makes everything really safe because he really creates an environment where kids can come and be a part of it. It was a really big lesson for me."
