New love calms Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore is "the happiest" she has been in her life.

The 36-year-old actress became engaged to art dealer Will Kopelman in December.

Barrymore appears to be content with life at the moment.

"She's the happiest she's ever been," a source told People magazine.

Barrymore and Kopelman experienced love at first sight. Although the actress has had two failed marriages and very public relationships with Fabrizio Moretti and Justin Long, Barrymore could tell that Kopelman was the one for her.

"There were sparks right away," the source continued. "They just knew."

Although the pair have not yet wed, Barrymore is already settling into the role of Kopelman's wife.

"She's still Drew, but she has calmed down," the source explained. "It's almost like they're already married.

"It's that When Harry Met Sally thing. Once you find the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible."

Although the wedding is a top priority, Barrymore is not expected to throw a wild affair.

"It will be very traditional, no elopement on the beach," the insider revealed.

Barrymore and Kopelman are currently working out ceremony details.
