Amy Schumer has given birth at last: “Our royal baby!”

Posted in Newborn.

Hooray! Not only has Amy Schumer welcomed a beautiful little baby to her world, but this exciting arrival also signals the end of a very difficult pregnancy.

“Our royal baby”

Amy Schumer has just announced her baby’s safe arrival on Instagram, with fans and fellow celebrities rushing to congratulate the popular comedian.

“10:55 pm last night. Our royal baby was born,” Amy captioned a photo of herself, husband Chris Fischer and her new baby.

A day or so earlier Amy revealed that she and Chris were expecting a baby boy.

Amy spent her pregnancy dealing with the chronic condition hyperemesis gravidarum (HG). This is the very same HG that Duchess Kate suffered from during all of her pregnancies. In an interview with the New York Times, Amy said it was no joke that she’d thrown up close to a thousand times during her baby’s gestation.

“Right on time”

Other high profile types were thrilled by this little boy’s safe arrival, leaving excited and supportive comments under the photo.

“Right on time. Congrats to the fam,” actor Juliette Lewis wrote.

“MAZEL TOV!!!!!! Play date tomorrow???????,” new dad and Bravo host Andy Cohen quipped.

“Oh sister!!! The joy!!!! Welcome little royal one,” mum-of-three and actor Kate Hudson posted.

Amy also shared a couple of photos of herself on the way to the hospital.

“Met look this year. Last night on the way to the hospital,” she captioned the photos of herself looking utterly elated.

The fourth trimester

No doubt Amy is over the moon to have finally got to the business end of her pregnancy. Where most mums who suffer from bouts of vomiting might shake it off after the first trimester, Amy’s condition meant she did not.

“Everyone who says the 2nd trimester is better is not telling the full story. I’ve been even more ill this trimester. I have hyperemesis and it blows,” she told fans via an Instagram post. 

“Very lucky to be pregnant but this is some bulls–t!” 

This hospital visit was surely the best one yet because it signalled an end to her HG and the start of a new life chapter. Previous admissions were more fraught, treating the now new mum for nausea and dehydration. May the fourth trimester be full of good times and puke-free!
