The comedian and actress revealed that her new husband, Chris Fischer is on the autism spectrum. Amy Schumer shared the man’s condition in her upcoming Netflix special, ‘Amy Schumer Growing.’
As you may know, they have been married for one year as they celebrated their first wedding anniversary just last month.
The two didn’t waste much time getting pregnant! Amy is currently expecting her first baby with her hubby.
In her much anticipated Netflix special, Amy gets candid about her personal life a lot and that includes her marriage with Fischer.
‘I knew from the very beginning that my husband’s brain was a bit different from mine. I want to get this right as I love him very much. He was diagnosed with what used to be referred to as Asperger’s. He has an autism spectrum disorder. He is on the spectrum. And there were some signs early on,’ she stated in her one-hour special while in front of her Chicago audience.
She goes on to share that ‘Once he was diagnosed, it dawned on me how funny it was, because all the characteristics that make it clear he is on the spectrum are all the reasons why I fell madly in love with him. That is the truth. He says whatever is on his mind. He keeps it real. He does not care about social norms or what you expect him to say or do.’
Amy and Chris tied the knot in February of 2018, just days after making their relationship public.
Towards the end of October, Schumer took to Instagram to announce the pregnancy but not on her own page!
On friend Jessica Yellin’s post, she simply commented: ‘I’m pregnant—Amy Schumer.’
