Amy Poehler: My Son Is “Turning Into A Possessive Husband!”

It looks like Will Arnett has some cute competition nowadays – in the form of his 3-year-old son Archie.

According to a recent appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman, mama and actress Amy Poehler, 40, jokes that her eldest boy is “turning into a possessive husband.”

“He knows when I’m going out if I’m dressed up or if I have shoes on,” she laughs. “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,'” Amy reveals to David Letterman. “I didn’t want to tell him about you. I didn’t want to confuse him.”

She continues to describe what Archie said next.

“‘Put on a coat,'” she recalls her 3-year-old son advising her. “‘Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do.’ I was like, ‘What? Read? You’re three!'”

The Parks and Recreation star – who is also mom to her 1-year-old son Abel – jokes that her two boys are 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.”

Amy and her husband and Arrested Development actor Will Arnett have been married since 2003.

    This article is so cute. I live Amy and Will, their sons are totally cute (and big, as she said) but that probably just means they’ll be tall like their father.
    Archie’s mannerisms are hilarious, what a funny thing for a 3-year-old to be concerned with.
