Amy Poehler Is Pregnant for Real!

Amy Poehler, whose new movie Baby Mama is No. 1 at the box office right now, is pregnant with her first child. Now that’s some serious Method acting. Her rep tells that Poehler, 36, and her husband, actor Will Arnett, 37, are expecting the baby this fall.

I’m great with kids,” she recently told the Daily News. “I think I’m still a big giant kid. I understand them and usually we’re the same size. I think I understand the way they look up at the world.”

We’re looking forward to some good womb-based humor (or wombor) on SNL over the next couple of months. If The Daily Show’s Samantha Bee is any indication, pregnancy only makes you funnier. And who doesn’t love a good vagina joke? (With the exception of Rovzar, who thinks vaginas are horrifying and possibly have teeth.)

Anyway, to recap: Amy Poehler is on Saturday Night Live, currently has a No. 1 movie, her new Nickelodeon series The Mighty B! premiered this weekend, she performs at the Upright Citizens Brigade every Sunday, and she still has time to have sex. The woman is a machine. —Noelle Hancock
