DREW BARRYMORE has said she is eating what she wants during her pregnancy, despite her doctor advising her to "pull back".

The actress, 38, is expecting her second daughter with husband Will Kopelman.

She told talk show host Ellen Degeneres: "I just eat everything I want, which isn't healthy. I'm bigger this time than my first time. My doctor the other day was like, 'Yeah, so I think maybe pull back. A little bit'.

"I was like, really? I thought I was doing great. I still fit into those jeans - they hurt when I wear them - but I'm still in them."

She added: "I want to enjoy the pasta right now! What's 10lbs?"

The Whip It actress and her husband are parents to 16-month-old daughter Olive, and Drew recently told Marie Claire that she is already considering expanding her brood.

"I think I'd like to have more," she said. "In the back of my head, I'm already timing if I was to have another when that would occur."

The star also opened up about how she has found the family life she always wanted with art consultant Will and her in-laws.

Drew - whose teen troubles and complicated relationships with her own parents, late actor John Barrymore and mother Jaid, are well-documented - said during her own childhood her "world was so inconsistent".

But the 38-year-old star said things are different with the Kopelmans.

"I didn't think I would ever get to experience that," she said. "This is so safe and positive and healthy because they have their values intact. It was huge for me.

"And that's what I want for my family."
