Amy Poehler and Will Arnett have separated

Amy Poehler and Will Arnett, who recently celebrated their ninth wedding anniversary, have separated. Us Weekly first reported the news and Poehler’s rep confirmed it to Celebritology via e-mail. The split is reportedly amicable.

This blog routinely reports on the break-ups and divorces of famous couples. This one is more heartbreaking than most. Poehler and Arnett have made a hilarious pair offscreen and on, teaming up in movies like “Blades of Glory” and on their respective TV shows, “Parks and Recreation” and “Arrested Development.” The actors — parents to sons Archie, 3, and Abel, 2 — also seem like pretty grounded people. Together, they were one of the rare Hollywood couples who seemed to have a solid chance at a lasting marriage. As silly as it might seem to feel sad about a split between two people that we don’t truly know, it’s really sad.

Or to put it in the Twitter terms of The Blogess:

Poehler and Arnett will have to confront this situation in a high-profile way at the Emmy Awards on Sept. 23. It is devastating that as a result of their separation, we presumably won’t get to see them do a repeat of their Emmy red carpet routine from last year.

Here’s the video.

See how great they were together? Pretty great.

That’s it. Love is officially dead to me.
