Drew Barrymore's divorce has been finalised in less than three weeks.

The Whip It! actress split from Will Kopelman in April and filed to legally end their union in New York last month, and now the paperwork has been completed.

The former couple - who have daughters Olive, three, and Frankie, two, together - didn't have to attend court for a hearing because the filing was uncontested, meaning there was no dispute over custody or their assets.

A source told the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column: "Drew and Will both wanted the divorce done expeditiously. They didn't want a messy divorce. They are still friends - in fact they are all together in Nantucket right now."

Drew and Will - who wed in June 2012 after four months of dating - said when they announced their split that their girls were their "first priority".

Since then, the Miss You Already star', who has been married twice before, and the art consultant have divided their time between New York and Los Angeles in a bid to share parenting responsibilities.

Despite her marriage troubles, Barrymore previously revealed the "strength" and joy she takes from being with her children.

When asked what makes her happy, she shared: "Just strength. Now that I'm a mom, and I know that it harkens back to the girls, aside from that, it really is girl power, badass. It is strength, clarity, conviction, health and focus ...

"It's funny, because there are times in my life that I am so loosey-goosey, so hedonistic, and it is so just 'hippy-dippy,' but right now I feel this great backbone is, 'One foot in front of the other,' which is sort of my attitude right now. That is anything but loosey-goosey - that if you don't stay in a straight line, you are going to get into trouble."

And the actress loves doing normal things like having playdates with her "awesome" kids.
She said recently: "They're so awesome. They're the most delicious. Frankie went to a doctor's appointment today. Nothing bad, the common cold.

"Olive had a play date with her friend from school, and her mom is a friend of mine, so we had a nice girly morning. And then Olive came with me to a doctor's appointment, because she just wanted to hang out. We like to lie in bed and talk. We did all of that."

Meanwhile, Drew previously revealed she is feeling positive about the future.

When asked what makes her happy, she said: "Just strength. Now that I'm a mom, and I know that it harkens back to the girls, aside from that, it really is girl power, badass. It is strength, clarity, conviction, health and focus ...

"It's funny, because there are times in my life that I am so loosey-goosey, so hedonistic, and it is so just 'hippy-dippy,' but right now I feel this great backbone is, 'One foot in front of the other,' which is sort of my attitude right now. That is anything but loosey-goosey - that if you don't stay in a straight line, you are going to get into trouble."
