Sadly our family is separating legally, although we do not feel this takes away the feeling of being a family from us.

Our children are our universe, and we look forward to living the rest of our lives with them as the first priority.

Before marrying Will, Barrymore was married twice. She was married to a Welsh-born Los Angeles bar owner Jeremy Thomas on March 20, 1994, but she filed for divorce in less than two months after their marriage.

“No, nobody. I’m not ready. I’m still in shock over everything. I’m going to take a while.”
She also says that she is old school when it comes to finding a date and is staying away from dating apps.
“It’s fun to look at it from my shoulders when my girlfriends are using it, but my concern is, ‘Am I going to be that person who classically meets a psycho and gets murdered that night?’ So I think that alone was a turn-off! ”
Right now, she is just focusing on providing her daughters the best life she possibly can, but we hope she finds love soon. So we wish her all the best.
