Drew Barrymore reproduces, gives baby disappointingly average name

In case you haven’t already heard, Drew Barrymore has officially reproduced.

Which is entirely boring for a number of reasons.

Firstly, it’s kind of what thousands of women do every year, but because she’s a famous person, and not an average Jane, it makes the news.

Secondly, it’s not the first time she’s done it. She’s already a mum to her now 19-month-old daughter Olive. A repeat offender.

Thirdly, the only thing that makes a baby story remotely interesting is when the famous person involved names their offspring something farcical. Like raindrop. Or mulletchops (see the gallery below for details).

Sadly, Barrymore and her art dealer husband Will Kopelman opted for a disappointingly average moniker, and therefore scuppered the only chance they had of elevating a mundane nib into a vaguely intriguing piece that, for what it’s worth, at least raises a few laughs.

“Happy to announce that today we are the proud parents of our second daughter, Frankie Barrymore Kopelman,” the couple said in an official statement to People earlier.

“Olive has a new little sister, and everyone is healthy and happy!”

You’re welcome. Here are some pictures of her eating loads of Chinese a few days ago, which the Daily Mail have ludicrously suggested could have brought on the labour:
