Amy Poehler; Life Imitates Art!

Amy Poehler and Will Arnett Expecting

"I'm great with kids," she told the New York Daily News earlier this month.
"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. I get it."

April 29, 2008 (NEW YORK) - Amy 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.'' AP - Copyright 2008 Associated Press. Read more...
