Rachel Dratch Interview on Girl Walks Into a Bar (Video)

Rachel Dratch Talks Her New Memoir and the "Life Plot Twist" That Made Her a Mom at 44

Rachel Dratch may be best known for her seven-year stint on SNL, but the actress and comedian found herself stepping into a completely unexpected role when, at age 43, she learned she was pregnant. Rachel recounts the sometimes overwhelming and oftentimes hilarious experience in her new memoir Girl Walks Into a Bar...Comedy Calamities, Dating Disasters, and a Midlife Miracle. The actress-turned-author recently stopped by PopSugar studios in LA to talk about her book and just how her life changed drastically in the span of just six short months. The new mom is currently co-parenting with her now-toddler son's father, and also spoke with us about her "unconventional family" and going back to work on a new pilot with Minnie Driver. Check out our interview with Rachel and find Girl Walks Into a Bar... in bookstores now.

What a delightful interview. Even if her family is unconventional, it's awesome to see someone who's clearly so excited about having a kid and rolling with the punches.
