    Live from New York...it's a Saturday night baby.

    SNL "Weekend Update" anchor Amy Poehler and her partner in wisecracking, Will Arnett, welcomed their first child just hours before showtime. Archie Arnett checked in at 8 pounds, 1 ounce.

    "Mother, baby and husband are all healthy and resting comfortably," NBC said in a statement.

    The birth announcement came courtesy of Poehler's "Weekend Update" tag-team partner, Seth Meyers, at the opening of the fake news segment:

    "Amy Poehler is not here tonight because she's having a baby. Now here are tonight's other top stories..."

    Poeher previously confirmed that she would not return to SNL as a regular after maternity leave, though she and producers were hoping Archie's grand debut would hold out until after the election.

    After a stint on diaper duty, Poehler will begin work on a new NBC sitcom from the brain trust behind The Office.
