The former Saturday Night Live star and BFF of Amy Poehler gave birth to Eli on Aug. 24, but managed to keep it a secret!

Yay for Rachel Dratch! The actress best known for playing Debbie Downer on SNL totally has something to smile about! The 44-year-old gave birth to her first child — a boy named Eli — on Aug. 24 in New York City. “She’s doing great and the baby’s doing great,” a source says. “She’s healthy and really happy!” And he’s got a ready-made playmate with Amy Poehler‘s 1-month-old son, Abel.

While the identity of the baby boy’s father has yet to be revealed, Rachel admits that there is a”crazy story” behind her pregnancy, but that she’s not ready to share it. “I’ve always been kind of private,” she says. “So then I’m like, ‘Why do I need to tell people?’ I would want to know but…”

While we’d love to know the story, the most important thing is that Rachel is now a mommy! Congrats!
