Will Arnett‘s a lucky guy. He and actress/comedian spouse Amy Poehler are celebrating the birth of their second child, Abel James, just this morning. The baby and mom are apparently doing just fine, just resting from that whole “squeezing out a watermelon/having your head stuffed through a birth canal” joy that is the human birth process.


Young Abel will join 2 year-old brother Archie, the couple’s first child.

In recent interviews, Amy Poehler joked that giving birth was just a part of the over-all getting ready for the Emmys routine for her. No, she’s a funny lady, for sure. She’s also up for an Emmy for her show Parks & Recreation, though most people associate her with her run on Saturday Night Live, when she and Tina Fey brought the funny every week. Just how much they brought the funny is evident in the show since they’ve been gone. Real Amy Poehler fans go back at least as far as her tenure with the Upright Citizen’s Brigade. Her husband Will Arnett you’d know as Alec Baldwin’s foil on 30 Rock. With comedians like this for parents, the kids are in good hands. Comedians are serious about caring for their kids.

We wish Amy Poehler, young Abel, as well as Archie and Will Arnett all the best. Happy bigger family, you guys.
