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.
