Her recent engagement is already old news, but Drew Barrymore is still aglow, especially when talking about fiancé Will Kopelman.

“I didn’t want to go to this little party, and my friend dragged me there and I met him,” the Big Miracle star tells Anderson Cooper on Friday’s Anderson. Though their initial meeting was several years ago, it wasn’t until 2011 that “things got serious.”

Now, after what Barrymore calls a romantic proposal, the two are in the midst of wedding planning — and all the fun that comes with it. “The thing that I think we’re the most excited about is … this will be such a nice year to do wonderful things together,” she says. “We like to spend time with our friends anyway, so on the auspices of this kind of a celebration, even more heightened and wonderful. What a great adventure.”

In the meantime, Barrymore also gets to show off her ring, a 4-carat sparkler from Graff Diamonds. “It’s beautiful,” she says. “[Kopelman] picked it out and he’s just got lovely taste, and it’s really fancy. I’m sort of like funky, eclectic girl so I feel like this is very fancy and I’m trying to like, you know, feel comfortable with it.”

She also needs to remind herself to stay comfortable with the planning process. “The worst thing you can do is like stress about things, and I totally fall prey to stress and lose my own advice every once in a while,” she admits. “We’ll just have a wedding, we’ll get married, it will be very calm.” Check out the clip below for more, and catch Anderson Monday through Friday at 4 p.m. EST.

Good Luck Drew! You are such a cutie!! I love you funky eclectic girl!! I’m a hippy chick too but I’ve learned to live with the diamond and enjoy it and you will too!

Glenda on

All this agitation for a wedding ! There are children dying of starvation every day. And I have a question for Drew: What happened to that dog who saved your life, did you “get rid” of him because your beloved boy friend doesm”t like dogs ? Where is he ? I have no respect for such a materialistic and superficial woman.

Glenda, dont you think that it would be easier for her to find a new home for it? being as she is an actress im sure she isnt home every night and it would be neglected. as far as im concerned im happy for her. shes always been a great actress.
