Amy Poehler: Son Archie “turning into a possessive husband”
Archie Arnett may be three years old but he’s asking the kinds of questions that mom, Amy Poehler, is raising an eyebrow to. The Parks and Recreation star recently told David Letterman her oldest son is “turning into a possessive husband.” Poehler gave a funny example on her recent visit to The Late Show with David Letterman show.
“He knows when I’m going out if I’m dressed up or if I have shoes on. Like today, when I was dressed up to come here, he said, ‘Where ya going?’ I said, ‘I’m going out,’ and he said, ‘With who?’ I said, ‘I’m going to see some friends.’ I didn’t want to tell him about you [Letterman]. I didn’t want to confuse him. Archie then said, ‘Put on a coat,’ and ‘Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do.’ I was like, ‘What? Read? You’re three!'”
Poehler and fellow comedian husband, Will Arnett, also have another son, Abel, who’s 20 months old. Poehler went on to gush about her “little giants”.
“I used to see new mothers walking around with their newborns in slings, buying organic coffee with their baby in their pocket. My guys were like 25 pounds in a month. They’re going to be as tall as me by the time they’re in fifth grade.”
