It's not a joke! Amy Schumer is pregnant.
The comedian, 37, announced the news Monday afternoon on the Instagram page of journalist Jessica Yellin.
It will be the first son of Schumer and her husband, Chris Fischer. There is no word when it is due.
On his own Instagram page, Schumer posted an altered image of his head on the body of the Duchess of Sussex and Fischer's head on the body of the Duke of Sussex. "About to announce some exciting news on the page @jessicayellin urges," he wrote.
Yellin then broke the news in his Instagram Stories. "I wanted to share some news from our community, maybe it's noise but it's a happy noise," Yellin said in a video. He then encouraged people to scroll through a list of political candidates, adding, "Read all the way to the end, you will see that there is some news down there." Congratulations, Amy.
At the bottom of the page, Schumer simply wrote: "I'm pregnant, Amy Schumer."
The news comes after Schumer denied the rumors of last summer that she expected.
A pregnancy puts quite the exclamation point in what has been a whirlwind year for the amused lady, too. In February, she and Fischer got married. Two months later, she ended up in the hospital with a kidney infection. Approximately one week before his medical fear, his film "I Feel Pretty" was released.
So, while 2018 has had its ups and downs for Schumer, it looks like 2019 is very promising for her!
