Like most of the couple, Drew and her husband also faced some marriage complication at some point but they dealt with their problem and are happy together. In an interview with Glamour, she confesses the darkest time in her married life.

She stated,

‘’ Several years into our marriage, I wanted to walk away, and I didn't. My dad said that even if it feels hopeless, it doesn't mean that it is hopeless. And then my dad was like, 'Also, go to counseling tomorrow.' My parents found someone for us to go see.’’

‘’It wasn't actually anything that either of us had done, and it wasn't a moment of betrayal. It wasn't anything like that. It was just being in a relationship, not knowing how to communicate and how to have a partner.’

Even in such ups and downs, her husband was standing with her to tackle the issue. Finally, they overcame the problem and started living together happily again.

Besides, the couple is blessed with two kids, a son Micah Emmanuel Lanfer and a daughter Hannah Mali Rose Lanfer. Drew became the mother for the first time on 18th January 2012.

Two years later, she welcomes her first daughter but faces some pregnancy complication. Her daughter came to the world a little earlier than expected. Drew experienced some contradiction three months before the due date.

As a result, the little girl has to spend 11 days in the neonatal intensive care unit. The actress explained,

‘’Her lungs were not totally ready to be outside of the womb [which led to] an infection, plus she had issues with blood sugar because I had gestational diabetes. It’s the worst thing in the world because you go into the hospital and you expect to leave with your baby. We didn’t know how long she would have to be there.’’

Drew prefers to spend more time with her husband and family but her career always comes between them. Because of that reason, she was not able to spend quality time with her children.
