Drew Barrymore is strong enough to bear the children, and get back to business. The actress, 39, hit "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" just three weeks after the birth of her second child for the episode airing Monday. 

Barrymore and her longtime friend Adam Sandler caught up with DeGeneres to promote their new movie "Blended," which hits theaters on May 23. Naturally, the subject of Barrymore's new baby came up.

"It feels like a miracle!" she told the talk show host about her and husband Will Kopelman's daughter Frankie Barrymore Kopelman, who was born on April 22. The couple welcomed their first daughter, Olive, on Sept. 26, 2012, just three months after tying the knot in June 2012. 

Barrymore explained that Olive was factored in when choosing the new baby's name as she questioned, "What goes with Olive?" She told DeGeneres that the names Hazel and Pepper were also considered, but then "that's two shades of green," or "two things you find in a pantry."

"[Frankie] was just a name that came to my husband and I about a few months before she was born. It was just sort of like, 'I think this is it,' and then we just gave ourselves the room to change our mind but we never did."

"I feel so good and happy," the mother to two gushed. "My kid is healthy. I have nothing to complain about. Like, I’m so blessed."
