Hear that? It's the sound of Drew Barrymore's biological clock ticking. The Big Miracle star made an appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno on Monday, Oct. 7, where she revealed that she "very much" wants to have another baby with husband Will Kopelman. Already mom to daughter Olive, 12 months, the Flower Cosmetics founder said would get pregnant "right away" if she could.

"I grew up as an only child, and although that really works for some people and for some parents that's the way they want to do it…I want to be the Griswolds," she said, referring to the fictional family from National Lampoon's Vacation franchise. "I want the kids in the back rolling their eyes at mom and dad. I want Rusty and Audrey, theme parks and the whole nine."

Barrymore also opened up about her "wonderful" husband and their June 2, 2012 wedding. "We got engaged and then I got pregnant," she recalled. "And it was like, ‘Well, we could wait, or we could do this the old-fashioned way.'"

The couple tied the knot in Montecito, Calif., in front of family and friends. "It was really one of those perfect days," the Never Been Kissed star recalled. "My husband, he works in art, and he has an incredible for design and detail, so we just thought to bring a silhouette artist. So everybody got a really cool silhouette of them and their partner or them and their kids. We had an old-fashioned real film photo booth, so everybody got to take home these old cool strips. We had food that we loved. Everybody was stuffed to the gills by the time they left, which is sort of key to a wedding."

Guests danced the night away as an ‘80s cover band played the couple's favorite hits. "It was romantic and beautiful and there were flowers," said Barrymore, 38. "There was merriment! It was good. It was perfect."
