Amy has reached heights in her career, but that’s not just something she is famous for. She has been gaining lots of attention due to her relationships- especially with Will Arnett, Canadian actor, producer, and comedian. So we’ve come up with an integral part of their relationship- their son. In this article, we will be talking about Archie Arnett, Amy Poehler’s son with Will Arnett.

Archibald “Archie” William Emerson Arnett is the first child of actress Amy Poehler and actor Will Arnett. The celebrity couple gave birth to their first child on October 25, 2008, in New York. It was after five years of their marriage. Archie’s parents had tied knots in August 2003 after dating for a while. Arnett and Poehler caught the eyes of the paparazzi since then.
Amy and Will’s son Archie has a pretty long name, which might be pretty confusing for some of us. Archie has inherited two middle names from his grandfathers’ names: William is Amy Poehler’s dad’s name, and Emerson is Will Arnett’s dad’s name. Amy Poehler’s son Archie Arnett also shares his name with one of the most popular kids of the century.

Archie and Abel have an age difference of only two years, which makes them each other’s best friends. The two babies like to do mischievous things, such as wearing underwear in their heads while pooping. Their mischief just doesn’t end there; they do plenty of other crazy things and seem to be restless all the time. Even though Amy shares some funny incidents about her son, she likes to keep her sons away from the media; but time and again paparazzi spot them during their shoppings and outings.
