Amy Schumer Welcomes A Baby Boy

Welcome to the world, Gene Attell Fischer!

Amy Schumer has shared the name of her newborn son on social media.

She posted a photo of her husband, Chris Fischer, holding their baby.

“Gene Attell Fischer,” the caption read. “And his dad Chris.”

The actress and comedian also used Instagram to announce she had given birth on the night of May 5.

Schumer joked about having her own “royal baby,” given that the Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry also welcomed a son.

“10:55 pm last night. Our royal baby was born,” she wrote in the caption of a photo featuring her family:

Meanwhile, in England, the actual royal baby of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle arrived just hours after Schumer’s baby was born, in the early morning of May 6.

The couple’s official Instagram account announced the exciting news, “It’s a boy!” with a caption adding that the “Royal Highnesses’ son weighs 7lbs. 3oz.”

In real life, a formal birth announcement was posted outside Buckingham Palace, in keeping with tradition:

The royal couple’s Instagram account is also where they revealed the baby’s full name, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, alongside a sweet and elegant black and white photo of the baby in his mother’s arms, surrounded by his maternal grandmother and paternal great-grandparents.

“This afternoon Their Royal Highnesses introduced Her Majesty The Queen to her eighth great-grandchild at Windsor Castle,” the caption reads. “The Duke of Edinburgh and The Duchess’ mother were also present for this special occasion.”

Before her social media post revealing the name of her own bundle of joy, Schumer also joked about crashing the Met Gala site on her way to give birth.

“Met look this year,” she wrote in the caption showing her on what looked to be the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. “Last night on the way to the hospital”:

Throughout her pregnancy, Schumer was candid about her struggles with hyperemesis — a pregnancy complication that causes severe nausea and vomiting — which resulted in the cancelation of some of her stand-up shows.

In November 2018, Schumer posted a picture of herself in the hospital, apologizing for having to cancel some of her gigs, and adding in the caption, “Baby’s fine but everyone who says the 2nd trimester is better is not telling the full story. I’ve been even more ill this trimester. I have hyperemesis and it blows.”

Schumer also mined her pregnancy struggles for laughs in her Netflix stand-up special titled “Growing,” which premiered on the streaming service on March 19.

In the caption of an Instagram post about the special, Schumer credited her husband, Chris, with helping her through the challenges of pregnancy.

“But thank you to my husband, Chris who has kept me going during this pregnancy,” she wrote. “His willingness and desire to be open with the world about himself and our marriage is courageous and beautiful.”

Schumer kept the pregnancy jokes coming on Instagram, including in this video explaining her struggle to put on socks.

With the caption “#itssoeasy,” Schumer jokes in the video, “When you’re pregnant, like I am, and you wanna put your socks on, it’s easy. First, the left foot, okay a little discomfort but not really a problem … then the right foot.”

Congratulations to Schumer on making it through pregnancy and welcoming her baby boy!
