It looks like 2018 is the year of the mama bear and Amy Schumer is the next mother to be. That's right, the comedian and actress told the world Monday that she is expecting her first child with husband Chris Fischer.
The news comes after Schumer actually denied claims that she was pregnant earlier this year. She was promoting her fashion line and pointing at her stomach in an Instagram photo back in July but this time the news came (almost) straight from Schumer herself.
Schumer, who is 37-years old, made the announcement in a less-than-traditional way and sent fans on an Instagram scavenger hunt. The actress posted a photo with the caption stating, "About to announce some exciting news on @jessicayellin insta page. Please follow her for up to the minute #newsnotnoise she breaks down what’s really going on. She agreed to post a lil noise today for me!"
Just before 5:00 PM today, Jessica Yellin posted on her Instagram story that the actress is pregnant in the sneakiest way. She included a long list in which she shared Schumer's news at the bottom, making it easy for fans to miss.
For those who don't know who Jessica Yellin is, she's an American journalist who founded News Not Noise, which Amy has publicly supported in the past. She asked her friend to share her news while also reminding Americans that the midterm elections are only 15 days away.
This will be the first-born child for both Schumer and her husband, Chris Fischer. Fischer is a chef and has his own recipe book called The Beetlebug Farm Cookbook. The two were married back in February of this year.
