Amy Schumer is pregnant with a baby, just as I am pregnant with a huge cheese wheel. Yay! The comedian (who has a new special on Netflix, which you should watch ASAP) expects her first child with her husband Chris Fischer. And true to her reputation, she has been extremely honest about her journey in motherhood – the good, the bad and the super barf-y.
Here's what you need to know about Amy's pregnancy and due date, and how she has incorporated this new life's chapter into her comedy. Beginning with the fact that she mistakenly appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers wearing a giant fake baby bump on her real baby bump:
Her pregnancy has been super hard
Amy has been engaged with hyperemesis gravidarum, which is basically severe morning sickness (fast, another royal comparison: Kate Middleton suffered it too). The condition caused Amy to miss more shows and she was even briefly hospitalized.
"I'm in the hospital," she sent up to Instagram back in November. "I'm fine. Baby is fine, but anyone who says the 2nd trimester is better, doesn't tell the full story. I've been even more sick this trimester. I have hyperemesis and it's blowing. Very lucky to be pregnant but It's some bullsh * t! "
Amy was so determined to return to her tour plan that she performed despite vomiting on the road to a November show and just after a December show. Warning: These videos are nothing to see during your lunch break!
Casual: She was arrested during her pregnancy
(And for good reason!) Amy was arrested while protesting against Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination. Her pregnancy actually motivated her to protest and get her voice heard; The baby she explained was "the more reason I wanted to go."
In fact, she has often made it clear that her child is a great source of motivation when it comes to her social and political activism: [1
It's called Growing it is on Netflix and it really is really great fun. Take a warm second to see the example below:
Her due date is just around Meghan Markles Due Date
We know the nugget info thanks to ] Growing where Amy confirmed: "I'll tell you who's not fun to be pregnant at the same time as … Meghan Markle. I think we're like in the same day pregnant."
Meghan is due in April, so Amy could give birth to someone now .
Talking about, Meghan is her Nemesis
"Why is she my nemesis?" Amy asked during a InStyle video. "Because she's pregnant with me and I don't want her to get away with it. So maybe I feel competitive like," Oh Meghan looks better than me, and she's got a little bump and she's got high heels and I already see 10 months pregnant and I have been using apartments for the last four years. "
On the note, please take a moment to appreciate Amy's pregnancy message:
She made a pregnancy completely naked
The pictures were published in the New York Times and they are beautiful:
She doesn't care what sex her child is
Amy confirmed so much in a Twitter post and said, "We're so happy to say that we do not care what the child's gender is. But the child identifies is fine. No matter what the child's sexuality is. Any way the baby identifies is cold with us as long as it does not identify as a DJ because it is heartbreaking. "
And finally, her baby shower cake was absolutely scary
Have fun trying to sleep tonight / ever again !!!!!
