After a very uncomfortable pregnancy, Amy Schumer is finally a mom!
The comedian and her husband, Chris Fischer, welcomed their baby boy Sunday night at 10:55pm.
“Our royal baby was born,” Schumer joked in her Instagram announcement, referencing the other high profile birth this week.
The birth comes after a difficult pregnancy for Schumer, who was very public about her battle with hyperemesis gravidarum, an extreme form of morning sickness that saw her vomiting daily, to the point that she was hospitalized on multiple occasions after becoming dehydrated.
Early in her pregnancy Schumer explained she intended to keep working right through to the end, but the HG forced her to cancel some tour dates and scale back plans. She did keep working though, although in her latest Netflix special, Growing, she joked that it wasn’t because she was trying to prove a point.
“I’m contractually obligated to be out here, guys,” she says in the special. “I’m not like, ‘I don’t care, the show must go on.’ I’m like, ‘I will be sued by Live Nation.'”
Thankfully, Schumer made it through her pregnancy with no lawsuits, and we’re so happy for her.
Not to put any pressure on Schumer to get back to work (she did just have a baby) but we can’t wait for a new set after she’s had a few months of motherhood under her belt.
Congratulations to Amy and Chris!
