How sweet! Amy Schumer shared an adorable selfie while cuddling baby Gene and it’s such a precious moment. The comedian and her husband, Chris Fischer, welcomed their new son into the world on May 5 and have been documenting some of their cutest parenting moments, including his first bath and how Amy spends her evenings breastfeeding. Mom life, right?
“Oh OK so I can’t watch handmaids anymore,” the 38-year-old hilariously captioned the cozy pic and added “#filledwithregret” during the early hours of Wednesday, June 5. Although Amy was broken up over the Hulu show, Gene looked to be sleeping soundly with a pacifier.
A lot of other moms instantly understood the emotional postpartum feelings that Amy was talking about. Country singer Brandi Carlile commented, “EXACTLY. That is what I keep talking about. It’s called ‘debilitating empathy.'” A fan responded to Brandi’s relatable comment and added, “Parenthood: Even toilet paper commercials make me cry.” DJ D-Nice gushed, “Love this! It’s great to watch your motherhood journey!” Actress Michaela Watkins also added, “God, I love this pic,” and we totally agree.
Amy has been loving this new chapter in her life. On her first Mother’s Day she posted a few thoughts about her new role as a mom. “OK here’s my post-baby annoying post and my takeaway from pregnancy,” she began the lengthy on Instagram. “Women are the s—t. Men are cool and whatever but women are f—king warriors and capable of anything.”

Ok here’s my post baby annoying post and my takeaway from pregnancy. Women are the shit. Men are cool and whatever but women are fucking warriors and capable of anything. I was lucky enough to get to have a doula. Her name @domino_kirke @carriagehousebirth what do doulas do? I don’t totally know But what she did was make me and Chris feel totally secure and supported throughout my pregnancy and the birth process. I really recommend getting one if you can. Doctor Brill and all the nurses and pediatricians at Lenox Hill and all the other hospitals i spent time in this year, thank you for everything. I did Pilates with strong women and went for walks. I threw up violently and felt sick mostly every day of my pregnancy. Hyperemesis is real and it’s awful. But fuck, what they say is true. The second you give birth it’s gone. @hgmoms has the best research I found on the condition The only thing that helped me with my nausea was products from @thelordjones I learned that globally 1 in 5 births take place without the assistance of a skilled birth attendant. @everymomcounts is a great place to donate $250 equips a midwife with a bag of medical equipment needed to provide care to hundreds of women and babies in Guatemala. All my friends. Friends I’ve had for 30 years or people who encouraged me to “keep going” or telling me “it will be worth it”. Thank you. Every woman I encountered is so willing to help and advise you and I felt all their strength. And you were right. Thank you ladies from my family. Chris, Gene and of course Tatiana #titsleaking #wearingadiaper
She revealed that she used a doula during delivery and highly recommended it to followers. “I did Pilates with strong women and went for walks. I threw up violently and felt sick mostly every day of my pregnancy,” she noted about her immense struggle with pregnancy complications that kept her from performing. “Hyperemesis is real and it’s awful. But f—k, what they say is true. The second you give birth it’s gone.”
“All my friends. Friends I’ve had for 30 years or people who encouraged me to ‘keep going’ or telling me ‘it will be worth it.’ Thank you,” she concluded. “Every woman I encountered is so willing to help and advise you and I felt all their strength. And you were right. Thank you, ladies, from my family.”
We can’t wait for more Gene updates!
