First and foremost, you know Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Rachel Dratch as three of the funniest comedians of the modern era.

While Dratch, Fey, and Poehler all began as big players in the Chicago improv comedy scene, most us first met the holy trifecta on Saturday Night Live in the ’90s and early aughts.

Now, we’re all aware the three women later went on to television and film success — 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, Mean Girls, and more. Not to mention, all three queens have published memoirs.

You may also be aware that all three women are now comedians and mothers.

Dratch recently told People that the trio leans on each other for support as they navigate motherhood:

“We have our SNL mommy support group. We all ask each other advice, we share our cute pictures… It’s fun to sort of laugh through all your foibles, your questions and doubts.”

Here is Tina with her eldest daughter, Alice — who is also the originator of the oft-referenced Liz Lemon quote, “I want to go to there.”

Dratch also said that the three women, as well as another incredible SNL alum, Ana Gasteyer, often organize playdates so that they can hang out, too:

“It’s pretty cool, we actually just had [a playdate]… It’s like regular kids hanging out though — I don’t want anyone to think, like, our kids are doing comedy bits on the porch!”

Still, their children COULD be future comedians. Dratch continues:

“Amy’s son [Abel] is right around Eli’s age, so they had a playdate recently, and Amy always jokes that they’re going to grow up to be the comedy writing team of Abel and Eli — they were singing this song, making things up… They’re just regular kids, though! But it’s cute how they jive together.”

Oh, to be a cool mom.
