Drew Barrymore wants another baby, while she can still have one.

With her biological clock apparently ticking, the 38-year-old actress told Jay Leno during Monday night's "Tonight Show" that she "very much" wants to have a second child "right away" with husband Will Kopelman.

"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, a reference to the fictional family of National Lampoon's Vacation franchise starring Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo.

"I want the kids in the back rolling their eyes at mom and dad," Barrymore added. "I want Rusty and Audrey, theme parks and the whole nine."

The bubbly blonde actress presently has one daughter, a 12-month-old named Olive.

Barrymore comes from a family of well-known stage and movie actors that include her grandfather John Barrymore, and Lionel Barrymore and Ethel Barrymore, her granduncle and grandaunt.

Starting her acting career as a child, Barrymore had her breakthrough on the big screen as an adorable little girl in the 1982 Steven Spielberg blockbuster "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial."

Since then, she has performed in more than 60 films, including, "Firestarter," "Scream," and "Charlie's Angels," among others.

During her "Tonight Show" interview, Barrymore also discussed her "wonderful" husband, whom she married last June in Montecito, Calif.

"We got engaged and then I got pregnant," Barrymore told Leno. "And it was like, 'Well, we could wait, or we could do this the old-fashioned way.'"

"It was really one of those perfect days," she said, referring to her wedding day. "It was romantic and beautiful and there were flowers. ... There was merriment! It was good. It was perfect."

Barrymore is also the cofounder of the Flower Films production company and is an Ambassador Against Hunger for the United Nations World Food Program, which she donated $1 million toward in May 2007.
