Rachel Dratch reveals father of 9-week-old son




Things aren't so exciting over at People, which is getting slammed in the celeb news department by other outlets this week. Their big story: Rachel Dratch reveals the father of her 9-week-old son, Eli Benjamin. Surprise! It's her boyfriend. Wow, that was thrilling.

"People are expecting the craziest story. I just meant it's crazy for me!" SNL alumna told the mag. She said that she and natural foods consultant John Wahl met at a bar a year ago and six months later, BAM! The 43-year-old was pregnant. "I had bought into all this stuff about, 'Once you're over 40...'  I'd gone through the whole process of letting go of (the idea of having kids)."

Things are working out great for them now; Wahl has moved from California to New York to help raise the boy, and suddenly they have an instafamily. Now they can sit back and watch the coin from all those guest appearances on 30 Rock roll in. Or, you know, raise their son and be perfectly happy.
