Katie Couric also added heart emojis, while actress Amber Tamblyn said, “Hot C-section Summer.”
“I actually can not with you, Schumer,” said “Orange is the new black” actress Uzo Aduba.
Fans also applauded Schumer for her post, in which user @lizziehuxley called her a “warrior”.
“A wonderful picture! Anyone who says c-sec is the easy option. I want you to look hard at this picture. Just a woman’s internal organs in the show, after spending most of a year on that cultivate another human being, “she wrote.
“I was just thinking about how I can not wear a bikini because of my ar / c section scar, but then I looked at pictures of that day and remembered that I created a human! Thank you for sharing yours,” added user @ lolashea88.

Amy Schumer: changes son Gene Attell’s name after realizing first attempt sounded NSFW
Schumer, who gave birth to her son Gene in May 2019, took to Instagram on her son’s first birthday in 2020 to thank her husband Chris Fischer for his love and support in her three-hour C-section. She also opened up that her husband was on the autism spectrum and encouraged her followers to educate themselves about autism.
“We want to encourage parents and people to provide themselves with the information so that people can function in the best possible way and remove any stigma that comes with autism,” she wrote. “Statistically, our son is likely to be diagnosed as well, and if he’s anything like his father, that’s wonderful news.”
Less than three months after the birth, the comedian showed off her “hot soft mail body” on Instagram, adding that she is “grateful to feel so strong again!”
Later that year, Schumer also became honest about how becoming a mother strengthened his relationship with his own mother.
“I’m just nicer to my mom,” she said in an interview with ET in November 2019.
Months after the revelation of her son’s original full name on Instagram, Gene Attell Fischer, Schumer revealed that she and her husband changed his name after realizing that their first attempt sounded NSFW. She clarified that her son’s original middle name was meant as a nod to her friend and colleague, Dave Attell.
Although Schumer said Attell was “so honored” to have her son named after her, she said “David” is better because it is also her father’s middle name.
