Congrats are in order for Rachel Dratch: The “Saturday Night Live” alum welcomed a baby boy on August 24 in New York City.
Dratch’s agent confirmed to CNN that “baby and mom are doing great.” The 44-year-old star named her new arrival Eli.
Dratch told PEOPLE in July that she knew the sex of the baby beforehand, although she opted to keep it a "mystery for now" - much like the story behind how she became pregnant.
“Oh my God, everything [about pregnancy has] been surprising.The most surprising thing is that I am pregnant. There’s a whole crazy story there," she said.
“But,” she joked, “that will come out in my book.”
