With a baby on the way, Amy Poehler says she and husband Will Arnett will celebrate her Emmy nomination
with prenatal care in mind.
"Ice-cream shots!" Poehler tells PEOPLE after she was nominated for outstanding actress in a comedy series on Saturday Night Live.
"It's super hot," adds Arnett. "So it'll be a lot of
staying indoors, getting ice cream, and keeping cool."
The comedy couple don't know the sex of their child, and haven't
prepared a nursery yet, but they say they've still got some time yet
to get ready.
"I think it drops in October," Arnett, 38, says. "We're very excited."
Poehler jokingly confesses there might be another issue they have to
deal with first.
"My brother said when they announce the nominees I'll take up two of
the five boxes," Poehler, 36, says.
