The actress and her husband Chris Fischer are going to be parents.
On Monday, her friend Jessica Yellin of News Not Noise announced via Instagram Stories that Schumer was with child.
“I wanted to share some news from our community, maybe it’s noise but it’s happy noise,” Yellin said. “So I’m not in the business of making voting recommendations, but these are the recommendations of Amy Schumer, one of the most consistent and earliest supporters of News Not Noise. Now read all the way to the bottom, you’ll see there’s some news down there. Congratulations, Amy.”
At the end of a list of Schumer’s recommended congressional and gubernatorial candidates was simply the line: “I’m pregnant-Amy Schumer.”
Fans speculated a baby announcement was on its way when Schumer used a Prince Harry and Meghan Markle photo to spoof that she was pregnant.
Writing alongside a snap of Meghan cradling her bump, she penned, "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! Follow her and VOTE!!"
After dating for a few months, Schumer and Fischer married in a private ceremony in Malibu, California, on Feb. 13, 2018. The pair exchanged vows in front of around 80 people, including Jennifer Aniston, Jake Gyllenhaal, Jennifer Lawrence, Chelsea Handler, Larry David and David Spade.
