Fresh off the heels of her political protests, Amy Schumer has announced via her friend, that she is pregnant with her first child. Schumer married Chris Fischer earlier this year and the couple kept the pregnancy a secret. Though they’ve been married for eight months, it’s unclear how far along Schumer is or when her due date will be.
Jessica Yellin from News Not Noise broke the story of Amy Schumer’s pregnancy on her Instagram account.
“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.”
Schumer is the cousin of Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer and it appears the news isn’t going to have her backing away from the political arena. With weeks before mid-term elections, it seems Amy Schumer isn’t giving up the fight.
In fact, Schumer found a creative way to not only make her baby announcement but let people hear her political endorsements and recommendations.

Schumer’s comedic wit was soon at play with the pregnancy news. She posted a photo of herself and husband with their faces superimposed on the bodies of the royal couple, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
She also stated the following about her pregnancy.
“Chris and I are thrilled and almost positive he’s the father. I look forward to competing with Markle every step of the way.”
Schumer hasn’t announced how far along she is or her due date. Social media erupted with congratulations and well wishes for the happy couple.
Though Amy has been busy with her political activities and is pregnant, she has a number of projects in the works. The movie I Feel Pretty was released in April 2018 and was a box office success.
Schumer has three scripts rumored to be in development, including a film with Jennifer Lawrence and the movie Who Invited Her? She is also working on the film She Came To Me.
