We wore the yarmulkes and we did the chuppah," she explained. "It's a beautiful faith and I'm so honored to be around it. It's so family-oriented...The stories are so beautiful and it's incredibly enlightening. I'm really happy." Barrymore also gushed about her baby, USA Today reports.

"I'm like Godzilla in the morning ... before I've had that cup of caffeine, and with her I sing her “Good Morning” with my husband from Singing in the Rain every day. She has the biggest smile and it's the first time I've smiled in the morning. I love it!"
