Saturday Night Live’s roster of veteran “Weekend Update” anchors – Chevy Chase, Jane Curtin, Dennis Miller, Tina Fey – is about to get younger.

“When [Amy Poehler] has her baby, her baby is going to host ‘Update,’ ” SNL star and “Weekend Update” co-anchor Seth Meyers cracked to PEOPLE at Sunday’s Journey to the Center of the Earth premiere, in L.A.

Meyers’s “Update” partner Poehler, is pregnant with her first child, due later this year. Fear not, SNLfans – it won’t affect the “Update” lineup … much.

“That’s the newest change. But other than that, it’s pretty much the same,” Meyers, 34, says, before catching himself. “No, we’re going to do it the same. I think her due date is later in the fall. So, we’re going to be fine to start.”

SNL has been on summer break, but Meyers says he’s heard Poehler, 36, who played a surrogate mom in this spring’s screen comedy Baby Mama, on the topic of kids.

“She talks about it, and I just groan and go, ‘Uhh, ladies talking about babies,'” he says. “Of course she’s excited. We’re all excited for her.”

Asked what kind of mother Poehler, who is married to Semi-Pro star Will Arnett, will be, Meyers says, “I think she’s going to be a great mom.”
