It looks like there's a Bat Mitzvah in somebody's future.

Drew Barrymore revealed during an appearance on Friday's The View that she and husband Will Kopelman plan to raise their daughter Jewish, a religion that the actress herself has embraced.

"I'm a shiksa. I do the seders and we do Passover. I haven't converted yet, [but] Olive will be raised traditionally," said Barrymore, who described Kopelman as "a nice Jewish man from a nice Jewish family."

Barrymore's embrace of Judaism actually began when she and Kopelman got married in June of 2012.

"We had a very traditional wedding with Rabbi Rubenstein and I did the ketubah. We wore the yarmulkes and we did the chuppah," she recalled. "It's a beautiful faith and I'm 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."
