Amy Poehler Emmys 2012; 'Parks And Recreation' Actress Makes First Post-Split Appearance (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Amy Poehler made her first red carpet appearance at Sunday's 2012 Emmy Awards since announcing her split from husband of nine years, Will Arnett.

Poehler, who was stunning in a low-cut black sequin halter dress, is a presenter at the award show and is also nominated for her starring role on "Parks and Recreation."

A rep confirmed the comedic pair's separation to Us Weekly in early September and a source told the magazine that the split was "amicable."

Just over a week after announcing their separation, Poehler was spotted in West Hollywood with the ex-couple's adorable 2-year-old son Abel -- Poehler and Arnett are also parents to a 3-year-old, Archie.

"I was always attracted to funny people, and Will is so talented and funny," Poehler once told Katie Couric in an interview for Glamour magazine about her now estranged husband. "We are genuinely each other’s fans and we love what the other does. I don’t know a lot of other couples where you’re with your partner and you’re like, 'I love what you do at work!'"
