Amy Poehler had a good excuse for missing work on Saturday - she was having a baby.

The "Saturday Night Live" star welcomed Archie Arnett, her first child with husband Will Arnett this weekend.

"Amy Poehler is not here tonight because she is having a baby," he said.

Poehler, who played a wacky surrogate mom in "Baby Mama" earlier this year, told the Daily News in April that she's excited to become a mom.

"I'm great with kids," she said. "I think I'm still a big, giant kid. I understand them and usually we're the same size. I think I understand the way they look up at the world. I get it."

Poehler, 37, announced she would be leaving the sketch comedy show after her son's birth to star in her own NBC sitcom.

Hi, my name is Rupert. I am working on a new Sci-fi project called Kirill, in conjunction with Microsoft MSN and Digital Studios (a little digital studio part of Endemol UK). We would really like your opinion and feedback on the project so far.

Why you? Because I have trawled the internet looking for people who we would want to be ‘the audience’ of Kirill, and we think you may well be one of those people
Here is the link to the video introducing the whole concept and explaining a little more: http://www.kirilluncovered.com/?p=16

Please email me back and I’ll send you more info.

Kind Regards,
Rupert
