Former ‘Saturday Night Live’ star Rachel Dratch told PEOPLE that the father of her baby is none other than her boyfriend, John Wahl, a California-based consultant to natural foods businesses. Dratch gave birth to their son, Eli Benjamin, on August 24.
Dratch told the magazine that she wasn’t trying to create drama around his identity but instead, was just trying to protect his privacy. But when she started hearing crazy theories about who the unknown man was, she decided to reveal the truth.
Dratch also revealed that she was floored that she could even get pregnant, as she was 43 at the time of her pregnancy.
“I had bought into all this stuff about, ‘Once you’re over 40…’ ” Dratch says of her chances of conception. “I’d gone through the whole process of letting go of [the idea of having kids].”
Dratch and Wahl are now living in NYC, enjoying their life together with their son.
