Well, it's official now.
We've known for a few months that Drew Barrymore and husband Will Kopelman were calling it quits, but on Friday, Drew finally filed for divorce in a New York court, starting that process and making it official.
The court papers, filed Friday in Manhattan, show the divorce is going to go uncontested, so it should be a pretty simple process.
Don't expect a big showing about money, or any squabbles over the pair's two children.
Sounds like it'll be a quick, sure thing — but Barrymore, who has been married twice before, is no stranger to that.
Let's just hope it all works out well for the kids moving forward!

Honestly, ever since it was reported that Drew Barrymore was in talks to have her own chat show, we haven't been able to stop thinking about the other A-listers who also make great TV hostesses. C'mon, you know you have too!
The world could really use another funny Queen of Daytime television — that's mainly because men have taken over late night. Sigh.
Be sure to weigh in on who YOU think would flourish best with a talk show (below)!
On Tuesday, it was reported that the Blended actress is in talks with Warner Bros. and Miz DeGeneres' production A Very Good Production over a possible talk show development deal. WHAT???
While a representative from WB has since declined to comment on the rumor, sources dished that conversations have been
The show must go on…
While other surprise guests like Chris Martin, Will Arnett, Ellie Kemper, Robin Wright, Laura Prepon, and Pitbull ensured we'd be coming back for more Chelsea, it was Drew's comments about her "failure" of a marriage that touched us the most.
The mother-of-two got surprisingly candid with her BFF Chelsea about the shame that comes with such a public separation, saying:
Earlier this month, the momma-of-two got the names of her two kids — Olive and Frankie Kopelman — spontaneously tattooed on her wrist.
Over the weekend, the gorgeous gal opened up to Entertainment Tonight about how much being a parent has influenced her life.
The actress said that she feels being a mom has bettered her:
"I think it's good to show my kids I'm passionate and have a good work ethic and that you have to earn what you have in this world. [Motherhood's] just made me such a better person. I always love and try to live on the high road. I think you feel best when you behave or react or come from the high road place. And my kids have elevated that for me in a way that is indescribable."
And, the 41-year-old explained that the impromptu ink brings her a lot of happiness:
Drew Barrymore has a lot of feelings right now!
Just a week or two after making the decision to split from husband Will Kopelman, the actress shed some tears at a fundraiser for the New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. The important cause is very near and dear to Drew's heart.
At the annual spring luncheon, Barrymore took the stage to read an excerpt from her book Wildflower titled Africa. The selected portion recalled D.B.'s time working in the AIDS-torn country and her time spent with infected children.
Before reading the emotional passage, the beauty confided to the audience:
"If I break down during this story, you will understand, I will just turn it into laughter and you men will think we're crazy. We are, but it's that craziness that actually evolves into compassion, and that's what's so beautiful about women."
Aw! We just love how Drew is always so open with her deep emotions!
Naturally, the momma of two stayed true to her words as she tearfully described interacting with a sick little girl she had financially supported prior to the transformative trip.
Considering Barrymore was so emotional while reading, we're not surprised she SKIPPED over the paragraphs which mentioned Will.
Despite the intensity of the day, it appears the beauty still managed to have a great experience:
You're going to want to set your DVRs for this one, Perezcious readers!
Not only will Drew Barrymore be making a super-rare television appearance, but she'll also be doing it on Odd Mom Out, the show that was created by and stars the sister of her estranged husband, Will Kopelman.
The 41-year-old's soon-to-be former sister-in-law Jill Kargman revealed on Monday that the 50 First Dates alum will be guest starring on the Bravo show's second season, saying:
