With a wedding to Will Kopelman behind her and their baby on the way, Drew Barrymore is all about family these days.

“I can’t wait until I have my children,” the actress, 37, who reportedly is expecting a girl, tells Haute Living magazine, on newsstands Sept. 20. “I just want to build fun, great things for my family.”

As for her kids’ career aspirations, Barrymore says she’ll be “so surprised if they don’t want to do something involving food or wine or art,” but she’ll be supportive of whatever field they choose to pursue.

“I love the idea that they don’t have to do something that they have no interest in,” she says. “They can do something completely opposite if they want to.”

As for her own career, Barrymore – who since being a toddler has been a Hollywood staple (and is currently a Turner Classic Movies co-host) – has so much more she wants to achieve.

“I want to do it all,” she says. “I love film, but I also love wine, food and traveling. I would love to be a travel writer. I’d be so stoked.”
