's recent pumpkin picking trip with her daughters didn't quite go as she planned.
During her appearance Tuesday on, the 46-year-old actress shared the story of the "Halloween miracle" that occurred when she was recently leaving the pumpkin patch with her two daughters Olive, 9, and Frankie, 7.
The 50 First Dates star explains that she was trying to teach daughter Olive a "life lesson" after she picked out a giant pumpkin that they wouldn't be able to carry to the checkout.

Friendly Exes! Sienna Miller Supports Tom Sturridge at the 2021 Tony Awards
Breaking up is hard to do — unless you’re Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge. The exes, who dated from 2011 to 2015, are still on good terms. The Alfie star still considers Sturridge one of her best friends. The former couple — who share a daughter, Marlowe, born in July 2012 — are aware that they are unorthodox exes. They raised eyebrows when walking the 2021 Tony Awards red carpet together, and they share bedtime duties every night. Oh, and they still live together — kind of. They often stay at each other’s houses and even travel together. “It’s not like there’s a structure for custody,” she told Elle UK in 2019 about their joint decision to put their daughter first. “We make it work. It’s not conventional.” In the years since their split, the two, who live a few blocks away from one another in New York City, have found romance with others. The Live By Night star dated Lucas Zwirner and her Foxcatcher director Bennett Miller. While the Sweetbitter actor was rumored to be stepping out with Little Miss Sunshine alum Abigail Breslin, director Juliette Buchs and Stranger Things star Maya Hawke. Yet, the British actors continue to stay in each other’s lives not just for their daughter’s sake, but for their own. “We still love each other,” she told Harper’s Bazaar in 2017.
"She had learned to love and let go and then I started crying and then we were like, 'It's a Halloween miracle!' " Barrymore tells host Jimmy Fallon. "Then he had this beautiful Jesus around his neck and I started having a religious moment."

After the man brought over Olive's pumpkin, Barrymore says as a parent she "started spiraling" as this wasn't the lesson she intended to teach her daughter, whom she shares with ex.

Take a walk down memory lane, from Alex Trebek's pop culture cameos to the time a supercomputer took home the prize.
"This isn't the lesson, the lesson was let it go, not you get it," she says. "So I'm like paralyzed as a parent like not knowing how to handle this situation. I want to make it okay for him and I want her to learn her lesson."
The daytime talk show host says she tried to pay the man for the pumpkin or get his phone number to thank him but he "wanted nothing."
"Then we carved it and we saved all the seeds and we had this whole ceremony and I said, 'We can't send him a picture and he didn't want anything in return, because he's a saint, clearly,' " she says. "But if he ever hears this story, you really made me and my daughter cry and the pumpkin is beautiful and it did make us believe in miracles."
