Poehler a Real ‘Baby Mama’

U.S. actress Amy Poehler, who starred in the pregnancy comedy "Baby Mama," has given birth to her first child, a representative for the comedian says.

A representative for Poehler, 37, and her husband, actor Will Arnett, 38, confirmed the couple welcomed an 8-pound, 1-ounce boy Saturday, People magazine said Sunday.

"Amy, Will and Archie are all healthy and resting comfortably," representative Lewis Kay said in a statement.

The birth gained nationwide attention after comedian Seth Meyers announced on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" his co-star had gone into labor.

"Amy Poehler is not here tonight because she is having a baby," Myers said of his "Weekend Update" co-anchor.
