How Does Amy Poehler Keep Her Life Balanced? By Holding On!
Amy Poehler and Will Arnett aren’t expecting their first child until next month — when Amy jokes her baby "drops" and she expects "everybody to go out and get it" — but that hasn’t stopped the mom-to-be from already planning their baby’s wedding! Opting for a delivery surprise, Amy doesn’t care if it’s a boy or girl because either way she wants the baby "to marry Alice Richmond, Tina [Fey]’s daughter." According to Amy, the Saturday Night Live actresses would "make a lovely mother and mother-in-law of the bride!" Her other wish for her unborn child? To inherit Will’s "terrific, terrific legs" instead of Amy’s, which she claims resemble those of a "10-year-old boy!"
When Amy isn’t planning future nuptials for her baby, lately she has been quite busy "crying at everything." From episodes of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition to trees blowing in the wind, Amy says there is absolutely "no shame" in the hormonal ups and downs of pregnancy. In addition to her emotional roller coaster, the 37-year-old actress has also worked up quite an appetite during the day, admitting to often snacking between her double indulgence breakfasts! "I ate two waffles, a banana, and cereal with blueberries. And that was between my two breakfasts," joked Amy during an interview with USA Today. With an ever-growing craving for food and a belly to match, when Amy is asked how she manages to balance it all between her pregnancy and her work schedule, she takes the question quite literally!
"My balance — it’s about not falling down. I am short of stature and I have a giant, giant, 40-pound cement beach ball in my front area. The way I balance all of it is, I put my hand on someone’s shoulder and ask them to escort me to the next scene."
