The Going the Distance actress - who is pregnant with her first child with fiancé Will Kopelman - is delighted she is having a daughter and "so excited" about the prospect of the forthcoming baby. 

A source told Life & Style: "She's having a girl. She's so excited."

Keen to marry

Previously Drew has claimed she would like to have a baby girl.

She said: "I feel I'm sort of surrounded by children and I do feel I'm going to have a child at some point. Maybe a little girl. I feel it, but I don't know if it's going to happen. We'll just have to wait and see."

It was recently claimed Drew - who has previously dated Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti and is the godmother to Kurt Cobain's daughter Frances Bean - was keen to marry Will before she gave birth.
