SNL's Amy Poehler gives birth to baby boy

Actress Amy Poehler of the sketch comedy show "Saturday Night Live" delivered a baby boy hours before she was to appear on the show.
The live show's parody news anchor was missing from her spot alongside Seth Myers on "Weekend Update" _ a parody newscast _ because she gave birth earlier Saturday.
On behalf of Poehler and her husband, Will Arnett, "I can confirm that Amy gave birth to Archie Arnett on Saturday," read a statement from Poehler's spokeswoman, Kay Lewis.
The baby was born early Saturday evening in New York, weighing 8 pounds, 1 ounce (3.6 kilograms).
Mother and child were "healthy and resting comfortably," according to the statement.
Poehler, who performed on Thursday night's special edition of "SNL" and is known for playing Hillary Rodham Clinton, was rehearsing the show until Friday.
