Rumors that actress Drew Barrymore is planning to convert to Judaism and that she is pregnant (there have been alleged baby-bump sitings by the paparazzi) are yet to be confirmed. E! News, however, did ascertain that she will be wedding Will Kopelman on June 2, and that the Kopelman family’s rabbi will officiate at the ceremony. The couple has been engaged since January, and has not spoken about their private life to the media.
According to a source to E!, the wedding will take place at Barrymore’s estate in Montecito, California. It will reportedly be an intimate affair with friends and family. “She wants to get married before her bump gets too big, but it’s important to her to marry before she gives birth,” the source asserted. “Drew and Will have spent a lot of time talking to his family about ways to make the ceremony special.” Sounds like there could possibly be a huppah and some glass breaking involved.
