"I can't wait until I have my children," pregnant Barrymore tells the new issue of Haute Living, in an interview conducted in August. "I love the idea that they don't have to do something that they have no interest in, that they can do something completely opposite if they want to. I will be so surprised if they don't want to do something involving food or wine or art, but I'll be OK with it. I just want to build fun, great things for my family."

But that doesn't necessarily mean the Big Miracle star wants to take a break from acting.

"I want to do it all," she adds. "I love film, but I also love wine, food and traveling. I would love to be a travel writer. I'd be so stoked."

The actress launched her Barrymore Pinot Grigio in 2011 and won a gold medal at the prestigious Le Challenge International du Vin in France. "I love wine . . . I think it's nice to do what you really love in life, occupationally and recreationally," Barrymore says. The actress is "still searching" for her red. "Right now, I'm getting to do the things I love and I'm so, so happy about it."

Barrymore, who tied the knot with art consultant Kopelman on June 2 at her Montecito, Calif. estate, worked hard to create her label. "We went to Italy, we went to our vineyard, our bottling plants, we tried a lot of different wines," the Going the Distance star explains. "I'm very leery of celebrity culture....I wanted to put it out there because wine is about tradition and family. Putting your name on something and having no idea how it came about if someone else did all the work -- that's not me." 

Barymore's interview with Haute Living hits stands Thursday, Sept. 20.
