Amy Poehler and Will Arnett: SPLIT

Oh no. Not them. Sadly, hilarious couple Amy Poehler and Will Arnett have decided to separate after nine years of marriage.

Ohhhh…, a lovely commenter warned me that something was up with the two of them, and I didn’t want to believe! But sadly, after nine years of marriage, Amy Poehler, 40, and Will Arnett, 42, are going their separate ways.

“It’s very amicable,” a source has assured Us Weekly Magazine.

Amy and Will have two little boys together — Archie, 3, and Abel, 2. This was Amy’s first marriage and Will’s second (he was married for a year to Penelope Ann Miller).

Amy is best known for starring in Saturday Night Live and for her current work on Parks Recreation, for which she’s earned two Emmy nominations this year — Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series.

I loved Will best in Arrested Development, but he’s also starred in Blades of Glory, Horton Hears a Who and Monsters vs. Aliens, among tons of other stuff. He, too, is up for an Emmy this year for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series (for his guest role on NBC’s 30 Rock).
