Sometimes stressful situations bring out the best in people, right?
Poehler shared how she found out that her doctor had passed away shortly after doing a Mad Men-themed sketch on the live television show.
"It was an example of the beginning of what children do to you, which is they f--k up all your plans," she explained.
"I called my doctor 'cause at the end there you kind of have to call in every day, and the receptionist was crying. I said, ‘What's wrong?' and she said, ‘Oh, he passed away last night.'"
She continued, "I was due the next day. So it's my first kid, I'm in a Mad Men outfit, I turn to everybody and I hysterically start crying, and a really pregnant woman crying is terrifying…And it was like the punchline to a joke, it's like, my doctor just died and I'm due tomorrow.
"And Jon Hamm, who I am just getting to know, comes over and puts his hands on my shoulder and is like, ‘This is a really important show for me. I'm gonna need you to get your s--t together.' And I laughed so hard, I probably peed myself—I believe that going through crying to laughing adds like five years to your life."
