US Weekly broke the sad news last week, with a source saying "It’s very amicable." A rep for the couple confirmed the news.
Poehler is currently nominated for two Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series, both for 'Parks and Recreation.' And Arnett is no slouch either - he's also nominated for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his role on '30 Rock' alongside close family friend Tina Fey.
The couple have shared the screen on a number of occasions, including roles in 'Arrested Development,' 'Blades of Glory' and 'Monsters vs Aliens.' Both actors have starring roles in their own hit comedies, Poehler in 'Parks and Recreation' and Arnett in 'Up All Night.'
Poehler and Arnett married in 2003 and have two children together, Archie and Abel.
