Live from New York...Amy Poehler has a baby boy

Amy PHow appropriate! Amy Poehler has given birth to her first child today, a baby boy. He is now officially known as Saturday Poehler Arnett. No, just kidding. The baby's name hasn't been announced yet. But considering Amy's connection to Saturday Night Live, it's just perfect that her baby came on Saturday.

According to sources, Amy was in labor all day. Yeah, that's right. Instead of rehearsing for the show, she was in the hospital with her legs up, sucking on ice chips and generally concentrating on her breathing and listening to soothing music.

Seriously, when you consider that Amy was doing that Sarah Palin rap just a week ago, you realize how far along she was and still doing the comedy business. Kudos to Amy! However, don't expect to see Baby Mama Amy back on SNL too soon. She's taking a well deserved maternity leave.

I have a feeling she might be back, just for a last episode. After all the years she has been on I can't see just being gone. I know she said she wasn't going to come back after she had her baby, but I doubt she thought Thursday's SNL Update was going to be her last time on the show.

Actually, it's unlikely that she'll appear on SNL again at all, except maybe as a host or in a return cameo. She was only back this season for the Presidential race and was leaving after that to do her new NBC sitcom from the creators of THE OFFICE.
