Amy Poehler and Will Arnett have split.

The Blades of Glory couple have separated after nine years of marriage, their spokesperson has confirmed today.

A source told Us Weekly despite their parting, the split is "very amicable."

Parks and Recreation star Amy and 30 Rock actor Will married in 2003 and have two sons together, Archie, three, and Abel, two.

Speaking about their relationship in 2007, Amy said: "People think we sit around and make each other laugh and stuff. But we're real homebodies."

Will has previously said he "immediately had a talent crush" on Amy when he met her, adding: "The first time I saw her onstage, I said, 'I'm gonna marry that girl.'"

The marriage was Amy's first, and Will's second after he was wed to actress Penelope Ann Miller for one year until1995.

Will is currently starring in Up All Night which will return for a second series later this month, while the next season of Parks and Recreation featuring Amy will also air toward the end of September in the US.
