Amy Schumer is pregnant. (And, no, she's not kidding!)

The 37-year-old comedian was assisted by Jessica Noellin of News Not Noise to announce that she is expecting her first child with her.husband, chef Chris Fischer, on Instagram on Monday.

"I wanted to share some news from our community, maybe it's noise but it's a happy noise," Yellin said in his Instagram story. "Therefore, I am not in the business of making voting recommendations, but these are the recommendations of Amy Schumer, one of the most consistent and supporters of News Not Noise." Now, read all the way to the end, you'll see there's some news down there. "

At the end of Schumer's list of backers for congressional and governor candidates in the mid-term elections, an additional bonus was included: "I'm pregnant with Amy Schumer."

Yellin continued: "Congratulations, Amy."

Schumer mocked the ad on his personal Instagram page with an image of her and Fischer's faces pasted on the bodies of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, who announced last week that they expect a real baby in the spring.
