It's no secret that Drew Barrymore had a troublesome childhood.
The E.T. alum was drinking and clubbing as a pre-teen, and living on her own before she could legally drive a car. But when she fell in love with Will Kopelman, a source says she was finally part of a stable family, something she didn't really have growing up.

The insider explained to People:
"The Kopelmans immediately seemed to like Drew. They quickly embraced her and acted like they really cared about her. Drew seemed very happy about being a big part of Will's family. It was like, for the first time, she had a real family. Drew spent time with Will's mom Coco over lunch and yoga. Drew and Will often had dinner with his parents in L.A."
That sounds so wonderful! But it's also making us really upset that the gorgeous gal and her longtime love have recently filed for divorce.
However if it's not meant to be, then it's just not meant to be.
But as they said in their joint statement about the split, the actress and her now-estranged husband are still going to make their children their number one priority.
And even though the precious parents are parting ways, the exes are going to do their best to raise their little ones in a stable environment.
We hope everything works out for the best interests of everyone involved!
