Update: Amy Schumer and husband Chris Fischer welcomed a baby boy on May 5th via Instagram:
"10:55 pm last night. Our royal baby was born."
The baby is named Gene Attell Fischer.
Congrats to the new family! Wow, it sure is a busy baby announcement day — and the very best kind!
Meghan Markle gave birth today!
Comedienne Amy Schumer and husband Chris Fischer are expecting their first child. Last fall, Amy alluded to her pregnancy by sharing a photo of her and Fischer's heads photoshopped over a photo of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. Soon after she confirmed her pregnancy.
Like Duchess Kate Middleton, Amy Schumer was hospitalized for hyperemesis gravidarum. Hyperemesis gravidarum is the most severe form of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy. The condition is rare, affecting about two percent of pregnant women.
However, typical nausea and vomiting during pregnancy are common and occur in about 70-80% of pregnant women, usually before 9 weeks of pregnancy. They typically fade away as the first trimester leads into the second trimester. While nausea and vomiting can feel severe during pregnancy, there is a difference between having one bad day of nausea and vomiting and having the more serious (and life-threatening) condition of hyperemesis gravidarum.
