Amy Poehler Births A Baby Boy


Congrats are in order for Saturday Night Live’s Amy Poehler and Will Arnett who are the proud parents of a bouncing baby boy who was born last night in NYC and the couple named Archie Arnett:

Comedians Amy Poehler and Will Arnett have welcomed their first child, a boy. Archie Arnett was born on Saturday and weighed in at 8 lbs., 1 oz., their rep Lewis Kay said in a statement. “Amy, Will and Archie are all healthy and resting comfortably,” Kay said. During the “Weekend Update” segment of Saturday Night Live, Poehler’s co-anchor Seth Meyers announced to a cheering crowd: “Amy Poehler is not here tonight because she is having a baby.”

This is amazing and very happy news. You may recall that it was just last week that a very pregs Amy Poehler not only showed up for work at SNL but managed to perform an incredibly funny rap song about Sarah Palin as well — and exactly a week later she goes and gives birth to a baby boy. It was very clear, last night on SNL, that Amy’s castmembers were thrilled that she had given birth … not only did Seth Meyers give her that shout-out at the start of the Weekend Update but they also dedicated a We Love You, Amy song to her at the end of the segment. I can’t wait to see how cute little Archie Arnett is … rest well and we hope to see you soon, Amy and Archie (and you, too, Will). Much love and congrats again!!!
