Amy Poehler is a renowned American actress and also a director, comedian, writer, and producer. She has proved herself in all of her works but what makes her stand out is her acting. She has been a part of many television shows such as Weekend Update, Saturday Night Live, but she is mostly known for the NBC sitcom Parks and Recreation, where she portrays the character, Leslie.
Amy has gained success in her professional life, but it’s quite the opposite when it comes to her relationship. Her marriage with Will Arnett, a Canadian actor, comedian, and producer, had brought Amy’s personal life into the limelight. But that’s not what we are going to talk about. Instead, we will be shedding light on the life of their son Abel James Arnett. Read the article to meet Will Arnett and Amy Poehler’s son Abel Arnett.
Abel Arnett – The Son Of Amy Poehler And Will Arnett
Abel James Arnett is the child of actress Amy Poehler and actor Will Arnett. The couple welcomed their child in August 2010. Abel weighed 7 lbs., 14 oz. during the time of his birth. The couple named him Abel James Arnett, where the middle name James is inherited from the middle name of his paternal grandfather (Will Arnett’s dad) Emerson James Arnett.
To add some background, Amy and Will had gotten married in August 2003. As aforementioned, this celebrity couple started getting followed by paparazzi ever since. And that is how the public got to know about the birth of Abel before the couple announced it.
Abel Has An Elder Brother Archie
Yes, Amy Poehler’s son Abel also has an elder brother named Archie Arnett. His full name is Archibald William Emerson Arnett, and he was born on October 25, 2008. Amy once jokingly said that Archie is turning into a possessive husband although he is only 12 years old. But having said that, he is just as mischievous as most of the children, and the brother duo does not fail to amuse their parents. Once, their mother, Amy Poehler, laughed her heart out when she saw the two brothers wearing underwear in their heads while pooping.
The boys are growing up really soon. Both of them weighed 25 pounds within a month of their birth. So Amy thinks that they will be as tall as her by the time the boys are in 5th grade or so.
Abel Arnett’s Divorced Parents Are Co-parenting
Abel Arnett’s life took a turn when his parents decided to part their ways in September 2012. His parents settled their divorce in April 2014. The innocent soul might even not know what divorce means and might be wondering why their parents don’t live together.
