Fran_drescherComedian/actress/nasal diva Fran Drescher says she’s the father of Brooke Shield’s daughter Rowan.  Obviously, she’s kidding but she did help because she helped Brooke administer a fertility shot at a party. 

Brooke recalls, "When I was going through IVF I had to take shots every day and at certain times at night. My husband would give them to me but I was out and I was supposed to meet him at this party. He was late and the time arrived where I needed the shot."

Fran continues, "She was really like panicking and she was thinking, ‘Maybe I should just get in the car and go to the location where he’s shooting and try and find him because I can’t give myself the injection.’ She looked at me and she said, ‘Do you know how to give an injection?’ I said, ‘Not really,’ and then I asked my boyfriend, whose father was pharmacist and he said he never did it either. I said, ‘You know, just tell me what to do. I’ll do it. I mean, if any junkie can do it I certainly should be able to.’ I’m the father of her child!"

Fran is currently starring in a new WB vehicle called "Living with Fran."
