Drew Barrymore, husband to raise daughter in Jewish faith

Los Angeles: Actress Drew Barrymore and husband Will Kopelman have decided to raise their 4-month-old daughter Olive in Jewish faith.

"He`s a nice Jewish man from a nice Jewish family," Barrymore said of Kopelman, a 35-year-old art consultant.

"I`m a shiksa [gentile]. I do the seders and we do Passover. I haven`t converted yet, but Olive will be raised traditionally," the actress said during an appearance on TV show The View.

The couple married in a very traditional ceremony about eight months ago.

Barrymore called Judaism "a beautiful faith" and said she`s "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."

The actress credits her daughter for making her a better person.

"(Olive) actually has made me a morning person, so she`s already made me a better person in every way possible. 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!," Barrymore said.
