Life imitates art: Baby en route for Poehler
The cynic in me would suspect that this pregnancy - coming right as Poehler's new movie Baby Mama (in which she plays a pregnant surrogate mom) premiers - is some kind of publicity stunt, if it weren't for that fact that Amy Poehler is awesome!
my Poehler, now playing the title role in "Baby Mama," is one in real life as well.
The actress, who co-stars with Tina Fey in the hit pregnancy comedy, is expecting her first child with husband Will Arnett, the couple's publicist said Monday.
The couple married in 2003. The baby is due this fall.
Poehler, 36, is a cast member on NBC's ''Saturday Night Live" who has been imitating Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) during the campaign season. She co-starred with Arnett in the 2007 comedy ''Blades of Glory.''
Though known for her boisterous characters, Poehler recently told the Sun-Times she wouldn't be a screamer in the delivery room. "I would go silent," she said. "I would be very zen and in touch with my inner peace."
Arnett, 38, starred in TV's ''Arrested Development.'' He has a recurring role as a rival of Alec Baldwin's character on NBC's ''30 Rock.''
