" It took nine months to build. It should take nine months to get off, she said. I wanted fettuccini alfredo. I didn't want a barbell."
Los Angeles, Dec 19 - Actress Drew Barrymore, who gave birth to her youngest daughter, Frankie, in April this year, is working hard to lose baby weight, but says she is in no hurry to get into shape.

For the actress, who is married to Will Kopelman, family comes first.

It's amazing. It's the driving force behind how I live my life, Barrymore, 39, told People magazine. Frankie joined older sister Olive, 2.

And with her two little ones at home, Barrymore says she's had to prioritize her many hats.

The acting has to be less and less because it's too time-consuming. I love it and I don't want to abandon it, but it can't be at the forefront right now, the actress explains, adding she loves her cosmetics line, Flower Beauty, because it allows (her) to be a great mom.

But even though she's focusing on her growing family, Barrymore admits dividing her attention between her girls has its own set of challenges.

It's a balance of who gets the attention, and it's a tightrope, she shares. But it's also a wonderful, amazing journey to raise two kids that love each other.

And with so much going on, the proud mom is just starting to focus on shedding her pregnancy pounds.

It took nine months to build. It should take nine months to get off, she said. I wanted fettuccini alfredo. I didn't want a barbell.

I was like, 'Don't talk to me about how fast and fabulous you are or it came off. That was not my experience. I'm having to work my ass off until I even think about getting it off.
