Actress Amy Poehler of the sketch comedy show "Saturday Night Live" and movie "Baby Mama" 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" because she gave birth earlier Saturday.
On behalf of Poehler and her husband, comic actor Will Arnett, "I can confirm that Amy gave birth to Archie Arnett on Saturday," read a statement from Poehler's spokesman, Lewis Kay.
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 Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, was rehearsing the show until Friday. She also starred opposite Tina Fey in this year's film "Baby Mama" as a working class girl who agrees to be a surrogate mother for a single businesswoman.
At the end of the "Weekend Update" segment, former SNL cast member Maya Rudolph, who returned to the show to portray Michele Obama in a sketch, and Kenan Thompson sang a revised version of Frankie Valli's "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You" in tribute to Poehler and son.
