Rachel Dratch is an actress and comedian, popularly known for her NBC sketch comedy, Saturday Night Live where she portrayed various roles including, Debbie Downer. Being in the industry for more than 29 years, Dratch has cunningly been able to keep her personal life a secret.

So, is Rachel Dratch married? Here, we will talk about the facts surrounding Dratch’s personal life following the life she’s living at present.

Rachel Dratch Is Unmarried

Actress Rachel has not even married once until the present. The 58-year-old has not decided to settle down and has been actively working in the television industry since 1994.

The real reason that she has not married until today is not clear, but we can assume that she has not found any desirable person.

Her Past Affair with Ex-Boyfriend John Wahl

Although the actress has not married anyone, Rachel was once in a popular relationship with John Wahl in 2009.

Wahl professionally is a food industry consultant who operates from California. Unlike Dratch, her foster partner was not a very famous personality and only came into the limelight after their relationship.

How Did They Meet?

Rachel and John met at a bar for the very first time in late 2009. Though the then-43-year-old actress had not expected the meeting to turn into a romantic relationship, they fell in love and started dating each other but kept their relationship private.

Rachel and Wahl Have A Son Together

After only dating for 6 months, the couple was surprised by Dratch’s pregnancy. Both the duo were ready to bear the child and start their little family.

On the 24th of August 2010, Rachel gave birth to her son, Eli Benjamin Wahl. Eli’s father, John who was then living in California for his work, moved to New York to live with his girlfriend and child. The love relationship between the actress and her partner was also only publicized after they gave birth to their child.

They Have Broken Up And Co-parent Their Child

After a few years of living as a family, the relationship between the duo started getting bitter. Eventually in an interview with The Cut in 2019, the actress confirmed that she has broken up with Wahl. Along with this, she also opened up that their relationship has not affected their son and they co-parent him.

Rachel’s Life Completely Changed After Having A Son

After separating from her ex-boyfriend, Rachel is living a lovely life with her son. In several interviews, the actress has opened up about how giving birth to a child changed her life for good.

Rachel got pregnant in her 40s with a very low chance of giving birth to a healthy child. Before giving birth to Eli, Dratch never thought that she could start a family and be a good mother. The self-doubt vanished as soon as she welcomed Benjamin. The actress added,

Having a kid killed all that for me, in a good way for my emotional well-being
