Amy Schumer has announced that she is pregnant with her first child with her husband, Chris Fischer.
The comedian and actress shared the happy news on her Instagram page with a hilarious Photoshopped picture.
Amy put her and Chris’s head on the body of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who have also recently announced that they are expecting their first child.
In the caption, Amy explained: ‘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!!’
Jessica Yellin is a friend of Amy’s and heads up the website NewsNotNoise.org. On her Instagram stories, she shared a video announcing Amy’s ‘baby scoop’ and explained: ‘I wanted to share some news from our community, maybe it’s noise but it’s happy noise.
‘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.’
Jessica then posted on her Instagram stories a screenshot form her notes showing her voting recommendations and a short note from Amy at the bottom, which says ‘I’m pregnant-Amy Schumer’.
Amy’s happy baby news comes just eight months after she and Chris tied the knot. The couple had only been dating for four months before they said ‘I do’ in February this year.
People have been quick to offer their congratulations to the couple and the post has proved very popular.
It has over 130,000 likes and lots of comments including: ‘Fantastic news I see what you have done here haha. Enjoy the journey.’
Congratulations to Amy and Chris!
