Baby Mama Drama

Well not really, but close enough. "Saturday Night Live" cast member Amy Poehler missed delivering her lines in this weekend's show to, er, deliver 8-pound, 1-ounce Archie Arnett.

"Amy Poehler is not here tonight because she's having a baby," Seth Meyers said Saturday at the start of the "Weekend Update" newscast parody, a spotlight he typically shares with one, Miss Poehler. "Now here are tonight's other top stories ... "

Poehler, and husband Will Arnett (of "Arrested Development"), welcomed their new son hours before the show, leaving a bit of a scramble for producers to rearrange the live show. Poehler appeared on the Thursday night edition of "Saturday Night Live" as well as for rehearsals on Friday for Saturday's performance before going into labor Saturday evening.

Poehler, who plays infamous characters on the show such as Hillary Clinton, has said she may not return after her baby arrives. In an interview with Men's Vogue magazine, Poehler said, "It's gonna be really hard — Boyz II Men hard — to say goodbye to yesterday. 'SNL' was dangerous, late-night, last-minute, and star-studded, but like any good drug, you need to know when to put it down."
