US comedian Amy Schumer has revealed via Instagram she is pregnant with her first child. Schumer first hinted at the news by photoshopping her and her husband’s faces on a picture of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – the latter holding her baby bump during their royal tour in Australia.
“About to announce some exciting news on @jessicayellin Insta page,” Schumer captioned the picture. “Please follow her for up to the minute #NewsNotNoise she breaks down what’s really going on. She agreed to post a little noise for me today. Follow her and vote.”
Jessica Yellin is a journalist based in the US who subsequently posted Schumer’s recommendations for the upcoming US midterm elections. The listed ended with “I’m pregnant – Amy Schumer.”
Schumer, 37, married Chris Fischer in a private ceremony in Malibu in February. The pair exchanged vows in front of 80 people including Jennifer Lawrence, Jake Gyllenhaal, Jennifer Aniston, Chelsea Handler, Larry David and David Spade.
