In January, Barrymore asked ‘Queer Eye’ star Bobby Berk for advice on single mom dating, noting that Kopelman, 44, has moved on with wife Alexandra Michler.

“I’ve been on a few personal dates that I would have given my all if they were on Zoom,” she said on an episode of her show. “I don’t talk about my children” [on these dates] because I think we should probably get to know each other first.”

Barrymore added that she never plans to tie the knot again, clarifying that one day she might “live with someone again”.
