Amy Schumer and her husband, chef Chris Fischer, are expecting a baby. The pregnant Schumer made a very mysterious Instagram post Monday afternoon. The image featured the heads of her and her husband with the bodies of Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex (the royal couple recently announced their pregnancy and seems like the I’m Pretty star is dropping hints for future playdates). The caption told fans she’d be making a major announcement on Jessica Yellin’s Instagram, directing us to follow the former CNN correspondent.
As part of a series of Instagram stories about the upcoming midterm election, Yellin shared what she referred to as “happy noise” about the comedian.
“We are 15 days out from the midterms…but first I wanted to share some news from our community, maybe it’s noise but it’s happy noise…I’m not in the business of making voting recommendations, but these are the recommendations of Amy Schumer, one of the most consistent and early supporters of News Not Noise.”
Yellin then urged her followers to read all the way to the bottom of the next story, that included a list of Schumer’s candidate endorsements. The list included Senator Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Georgia Governor Stacey Abrams, and Beto O’Rourke of Texas, among others. And then, in the last line, the cheeky comedian dropped the news in her savvy social media way.
Schumer, who’s been politically active since a man shot up a movie theater during a showing of her 2015 film Trainwreck as well as in recent months, also tied in a call to action with a message encouraging her followers to vote.
This will be Schumer and Fischer’s first child. Congratulations to the happy couple.
