American comedian Amy Schumer announced that she is pregnant with her first child, on a friend's Instagram account.
Schumer first hinted at the news with a photo of her husband Chris Fischer and she herself edited an image of Prince Harry and his wife Meghan.
The fans then linked with the profile of journalist Jessica Yellin, who published Schumer's recommendations for the upcoming midterm elections in the United States.
The list ended with the words: "I'm pregnant – Amy Schumer."
The royal couple had shared their own news about babies last week during a tour of Australia.
Schumer, who is a bestselling author and wrote and starred in the 2015 movie Trainwreck, is politically outspoken and was arrested during a protest against Judge Brett Kavanaugh's appointment to the Supreme Court earlier this month.
As part of his announcement, he endorsed more than 20 Democratic candidates who presented themselves to Congress at the November polls.
