Amy Poehler And Will Arnett Are Splitting Up
After almost a decade of combining to form the funniest celebrity married couple since Gene Wilder and Gilda Radner, Amy Poehler and Will Arnett have decided to go their separate ways. A representative for the couple has officially confirmed the separation is happening, but no one involved has put out any official statement or given any possible reason as to why the laughter stopped.
The Parks and Recreation actress and the Arrested Development actor walked down the aisle all the way back in 2003. In the nine years since, they’ve co-created two babies, sons Archie and Abel, and co-starred in quite a few films together, but obviously, something below the cheerful and pleasant exterior wasn’t working.
A source told US Magazine the split is amicable. If true, that will certainly make their lives and the lives of their children far easier moving into the future. The best divorces all involve a continued sense of co-parenting, and that’s obviously harder to achieve when there is overt animosity present.
Both Poehler and Arnett are extremely private celebrities. They’ve kept their relationship out of the gossip pages for years, and there’s no reason to think they’ll want to change that policy now by spilling the real secrets behind the break-up. Expect a relatively generic statement in the next few days and no overt signs of hard feelings displayed in the future.
Pop Blend’s thoughts go out to the entire family in this time of need. Here’s to hoping it’s as painless as possible.
