From Prince Harry to Michael Fassbender to Amy Poehler's son, gingers are really having a moment right now!

The Parks and Recreation star paid a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday, Sept. 17, and she couldn't help but gush about 3-year-old Abel's fiery (and cute) characteristics. 

"Abel has red hair and a lisp, which is just a jackpot for me," she said. "We try and pimp him to say things with his lisp because it's so cute."

Spicy salsa, for example, is a term the redhead can't pronounce quite correctly yet, so Amy does what she can to get him to cutely say, "Thpity thaltha!" 

But little Abel isn't the only star in the fam: Amy's other son with ex Will Arnett, 4-year-old Archie, is quite the comedian, too.

"So yesterday he said to me, 'Mom, we're made out of meat,'" Amy said with a laugh. She tried to explain we're made of "meat and bones, and tissue," but ultimately concluded, "Yeah, you're right!" 

"I cant wait for my children to get on the road and make some money for me," Amy added jokingly. "I can't wait to retire and have my kids support me."
