As of this posting, Schumer’s mysterious social media post has gathered almost 60,000 likes and over 900 comments. Many of the comments speculated that the comic will announce tomorrow that she is having twins. Her fans could not agree on the sexes of the speculative twins, though. One follower commented, “AND…its twin GIRLS??” while another commented, “Twin boys?” and yet another guessed, “One boy and one girl.”

Amy Schumer addresses pregnancy rumors

Schumer, who does not currently have any children, announced her pregnancy in a low-key manner in October. She posted a Photoshopped teaser on her own page (including a plea to VOTE!!). She then officially announced on her friend Jessica Yellin’s Instagram account. The pregnancy announcement was at the end of a list of political candidates for the 2018 U.S. midterm elections.

Schumer has not been shy about posting about her pregnancy, including a candid photo in her underwear over the weekend. She also posted an ultrasound photo in January that could reveal further clues. Schumer is married to chef Chris Fischer.

Amy Schumer is not having twins

Finally addressing the rumors, Schumer posted on Sunday a movie poster for Twins, showing Danny Devito and Arnold Schwarzenegger in matching beige suits. However, Schumer captioned the post, “I am NOT having these. #justone,” squashing any rumors. So far, that post has almost 24,000 likes and almost 500 comments. One follower @tommiekay1 commented, “So then it must be that the Olsen twins will be your bambino’s nannies, teaching acting skills in tandem with diaper changes.”

Stay tuned for Schumer’s surprise announcement on Tuesday!
