Amy Schumer is pregnant. (And, no she is not joking!)
The comedian, 37, enlisted the help of News Not Noise's Jessica Yellin to announce that she is expecting her first child with her husband, chef Chris Fischer, on Instagram Monday.
“I wanted to share some news from our community, maybe it’s noise but it’s happy noise,” Yellin said on her Instagram Story. “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."
At the end of Schumer's list of endorsements for congressional and gubernatorial candidates in the midterm elections was an added bonus: “I’m pregnant-Amy Schumer.”
Yellin continued: "Congratulations, Amy.”
Schumer teased the announcement on her personal Instagram page with an image of her and Fischer's faces pasted onto the bodies of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, who announced last week that are expecting a royal baby in the spring.
