Thankfully, the firstborn son of Amy Poehler and Will Arnett wasn’t named Cain -- because the couple welcomed their second baby boy, Abel James, on Friday morning.

The Poehler-Arnetts, including 2-year-old Archie, are ‘happy and resting comfortably’ according to her rep.


In a recent chat with the Hollywood Reporter, Poehler mentioned that her plans for the upcoming Emmy Awards included delivery.

‘I do it every year. I get my hair and nails done, I get a facial, I have a baby and then I go to the Emmys,’ she said.

Poehler is nominated for a best actress comedy Emmy for her work on ‘Parks and Recreation.’ Arnett also scored a nom for his role as Alec Baldwin‘s adversary on ’30 Rock.’
