Amy Schumer announced her newborn baby boy’s name on Tuesday by sharing a photo of her son being sweetly carried by her father.
She wrote in the caption, “Gene Attell Fischer And his dad Chris.”
Gene’s middle name Attell appears to be a reference to fellow comedian and the actress’ friend, Dave Attell, who recently invited Schumer to perform with at his show at Caroline’s in New York City in January.
The actress, 37, welcomed her first child with husband Chris Fischer on Sunday, May 5, she announced on Instagram Monday alongside a hospital photo of herself and Fischer with their newborn son.
“10:55 pm last night. Our royal baby was born,” Schumer captioned the snap, which saw the new dad leaning down to give his blissed-out wife a kiss right above the cheek.
The caption was no doubt a nod to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, who welcomed 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.
