Love the name! I had a feeling she would have another boy, how exciting:)

- jessicad on

Love them but not really their naming style. But I bet he is a cutie like his brother!

- Sage on

I totally forgot she was pregnant. Archie is so cute and I bet Abel will be just as handsome!

- Lisa on

Awesome! I thought they’d have a second son!

- Shamantha on

Congratulations to the family.

So weird, seeing as this morning we(people on this site) saw a picture of her and thought she was going any day. Not a fan of the name, but congratulations!!

- Kathleen on

Congrats Amy, Will and Big Brother Archie on baby Abel! I love the name and the fact that Abel and I share a bday!

- Ruthie on

Abel and Archie, cute! They have that “old man” feel, but I think it’s charming. :)

- soph on

Congrats! I have two boys that are two years apart and they will keep you busy! They’re 5 and 3 now and I’m expecting my third boy this fall. Boys are so much fun!

- Nicole on

Ha I just saw the pictures of her at the grocery store and thought she looked further along than I had originally assumed!

- Katie on

Congrats! I have 2 boys (5.5 and 16 months) they are so much fun and loud! Were having our first girl in a few months so that will be a big difference!

- erika on

Congratulations! I just had a feeling they were having another boy. For some reason, I don’t see them with a girl, just boys.

- kendrajoi on

Damn I was thinking boy for a long time then saw the earlier pic and she looked high (she was really low with Archie) So I thought girl for sure!! Wrong!! lol
I can see her with boys though!! Congrats Amy and Will.

- JMO on

I am a parent to 4 boys 7 and under. Keep them running and they eventually get tired! Congratulations!!

- diane on

cute, I like Abel much better than Archie!

- Romy on

Congrats!!!!! Love the name!!!!

- Rosie on

How sweet, two boys! They’re probably really fun parents!

- Janna on

I knew it would be a boy! Congrats to Amy and Will, they are such neat people. And congrats to new big brother Archie.

- SAR on

Cute…must say this has come around very quickly. I wasn’t expecting her to be due to atleast September. Would’ve been nice if they had had a girl but 2 boys is very cute and they suit 2 boys. Not sure if I like the name though…

- Emily on

Congrats!! I have 2 boys…closer to 3 years apart, and they are the best of friends!! They would do anything for each other. And they love their mom!!!

- Karen on

Congrats! The names of both of their boys are wonderful. Even though they are classic names, I doubt, these kiddos will find their names embarrassing like the other “hollyweird” names.

- Sleepy_mama_of_3 on

Two boys are fun! They should make sure to always get exact replicas of any toys or items. Boys can be competitive! My two even have the same color toothbrush, just to avoid fighting LOL. Congrats to them! Cute name, too.

- Ann on

Guess i was wrong cuz I could have sworn she would have a girl. But I must say, when I saw that picture earlier today, I thought she was due soon but not this soon! I actually like the name, but I would never give my children the initials AA for obvious reasons. I don’t know, just a thing of mine. Congratulations Will, Amy, and Archie on baby Abel. Two boys will be fun!

- Luna on

Congrats on your new addition. I hope all is well and that Abel will bring joy and happiness to you guys. Lots of love to your family

- sophia on

Awww, 2 boys! Well she’ll be busy! Alot of testosterone in that house I must say.

- M&L on

Aww I really wanted her to have a girl. I just pictured them with a girl since they already have a boy. But congrats to them.

- Erika on

Wow I clicked send too quick. I meant to add:
I like the ways the names go together. Two boys will sure generate some fun for her and her husband, and being close in age hopefully they will be good friends!

- Erika on

Congrats to them! I did not realize she was due so soon (unlike a lot of the other posters, I saw this post before the one of her at the store, since I just now did my daily Moms and Babies check!)! I was hoping they’d have a girl (because I’d love to see what a little girl of theirs would look like), but like some other posters, I, too, see them with only boys for some reason. :)

- CelebBabyLover on

Hahaha, I said yesterday that I thought she was having a boy. Usually wrong though, can’t believe I got one right!

Congratulations and LOVE LOVE LOVE the name!

- Ethan, Aly, James, Sully and Stellan's Mama on

Love the name!

- sara on

Maybe the reason you don’t hear the name Abel very much is that, in the Bible, he was murdered by his brother Cain. I’m not even religious and I know that one.

- Jacqui on

Oh, how lovely! I thought they’d have a second son :)
The names Archie and Abel go wonderfully together, and the same first initial is sweet without being too “matchy”.
Archie’s absolutely beautiful, I’m sure Abel James is too.
Great name, great news, congratulations to Amy, Will and Archie :)

- Sophia on

i wonder if he’ll be called “AJ”

- pd on

Congratulations on two, healthy sons. Boys are wonderful and I wish the family nothing but the best.

- Marisela on

I love Amy!!! I can’t lie…I wanted her to have a girl so bad but every baby is a blessing no matter what the gender! :)

Congrats to the family of four!! :) ))

- Rye on

Sorry, my comment was kinda dark – didn’t mean it that way. Happy for this family, think Will & Amy are both hilarious!

- Jacqui on

Something I find interesting: Archie has two middle names (per his birth announcement post here on Moms and Babies, his full name is Archibald William Emerson Arnett)….yet Abel only has one. I wonder why that is? Just to clarify, I don’t have a problem with the fact that Archie has two middle names while Abel has one. I just find it interesting is all. :)

- CelebBabyLover on

Congrats! I cant see her having a girl either. I don’t like their names though. She’s supposed to be a funny lady making fun of others and names her sons Abel and Archie? Come on Amy! LOL doesn’t matter though they are your boys all the best to her and Will.
