Drew Barrymore ‘shocked’ by father

Drew Barrymore Drew Barrymore finds it ''shocking'' that her father walked away from his family. The 39-year-old actress - who gave birth to her second daughter, Frankie, last week - insists she is ''okay'' with the fact her dad John Barrymore wasn't around for her and her mother Jaid very much when she was a child but can't understand his actions. She said: ''My parents split up before I was born and my dad was just never capable of being a father. It's something I really accepted and became okay with early on. But it's shocking to me that someone can make that choice. As much as I accepted it with him, I could never accept it in a partner... for some people showing up is just not possible and that is incredibly frustrating. When you become a parent, and think about what kids need, it is very emotional.'' The actress also has 19-month-old daughter Olive with husband Will Kopelman.

    These are the sexiest white wedding shoes I have found. They are made of silk satin with a rhinestone star burst. These white wedding shoes are actually high heel sandals. the heel is 3.5″, high but not too high. The shoes have white criss cross straps. They are available in both white and ivory. These white bridal shoes are available at Bellissima Bridal for $210.
