The 38-year-old actress said as much to Jay Leno on last night’s episode of The Tonight Show, to which she wore a colourful Kate Spade jumper and lipstick from her Flower Cosmetics company. “Wearing my @flowerbeauty Rose Bud Kiss Stick High Shine Lip Color on my way out to see @jayleno on#thetonightshow. #redlips,” she posted on Instagram, alongside the above photo.

“Normally I wouldn’t ask a woman this question, but I know you, and I think I know the answer so it seems okay,” Jay asked her. “Do you want to have more kids?”

“Very much,” Drew beamed. “Right away, yes.”

“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,” she continued, “I want to be the Griswolds. 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.”

You remember the Griswolds from National Lampoon’s Vacation movies, right? With Chevy Chase? Love!

While they get set for a second pregnancy, Drew and Will are enjoying their little smartie-pants (who Drew says will start walking by next week). “[Olive] says a lot of words,” Drew told Jay. “I mean, we all want to believe our kids are smart — and we should — and she’s smart!”

Wow, 12 months is early for a lot of words. Mind you, my daughter had quite a few words by 13 months, I remember. My son, not so much: He had about 10 words by the time he was two years old, including “uh-oh,” “Mama,” and “Dada.” Now, at six years old, he won’t stop talking! #pshh #pfoom #powwww!
