Amy Schumer welcomes her 'royal baby' with husband Chris Fischer
And another royal baby was born! Amy Schumer gave birth to her first child with her husband, Chris Fischer, on Sunday. On Monday, the actress and comedian announced the birth of her son, posting a hospital picture of her husband and her newborn son on Instagram with the caption, "10:55 pm last night. Our royal baby was born."
The caption was in tune to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcoming their first child — also a baby boy — hours later, on Monday. Minutes before the big reveal, Schumer posted two snapshots of herself posing outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where people were setting up for Monday’s 2019 Met Gala. “Met look this year. Last night on the way to the hospital 👠,” she joked in the caption.
The 37-year-old revealed her pregnancy news last October, eight months after tying the knot with Fischer, a James Beard Award-winning cookbook author and chef. Even their baby announcement came just days after Markle and Harry revealed they were expecting their first child.
Comedian Schumer went on to incorporate the royal couple into her announcement, photoshopping her and her husband’s face over a snapshot of the royal couple. However, Schumer's pregnancy journey has been a bumpy one over the course of the past nine months, which has included multiple episodes of sickness.
Amy was also hospitalized because of hyperemesis gravidarum, a condition marked by persistent morning sickness which can lead to dehydration and weight loss, which forced her to cancel a comedy show. A day before her baby's birth, Schumer revealed the sex of her baby in a lengthy post where she spoke out against fast-food chain Wendy’s in a photo featuring herself and Fischer in their pediatrician’s waiting room.
“Hey! We love @chancetherapper and hate to be the ones to tell him that Wendys is the only fast food chain refusing to protect farmworker women from sexual assault and rape in the fields. This is true. Please read that sentence again,” she wrote. “Also we are having a boy,” Schumer concluded. The good news has arrived for the two happy couples but both royal babies' names have not been announced yet.
