Amy Schumer's Instagram posts about motherhood are just as great as her pregnancy ones
When Amy Schumer was pregnant, she posted photos of herself devouring beignets to curb her pregnancy cravings, vomiting on the side of the road, walking 138 steps in a day and charting her experience of hyperemesis gravidarum.
But Schumer's realness didn’t stop after she gave birth to son Gene Attell Fischer earlier this month.
Gene was born hours apart from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's son, Archie Harrison. "I think we’re, like, to the day the same amount pregnant," Schumer said of the Duchess in her Netflix special, where she jokingly called Meghan her pregnancy "nemesis."
Now that Gene has arrived, the comedian has continued to give us the content we crave, highlighting the most glamorous parts of motherhood – breast pumps and post-birth bathroom runs included.
She introduced him in the most Amy Schumer way
“New kid, who dis?” was one of her first posts after Gene was born.
She got a little emotional about the women in her life (but kept it real with the hashtags)
“Ok here’s my post baby annoying post and my takeaway from pregnancy... 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," she wrote in an emotional post. But it wasn't serious for long, as she hashtagged the sentimental moment with "#t*tsleaking #wearingadiaper."
She presents an unfliltered approach to life post-partum
“Milf alert 1 o’clock,” she captioned a photo of herself on the toilet.
She admits to not spending every waking minute with Gene
“Fully neglecting a newborn to read #howardsterncomesagain it’s out now!!!" she wrote.
She's had some wild nights - with a breast pump
“Guys what are we doing tonight?" she asked Stassi Schroeder. The Vanderpump Rules star responded to the breast pump picture with, "An OOTD for the ages."
She got back to work...
“Pic from tonight by @hewasfunny I’m back!” she captioned a photo performing at a comedy club.
Despite some negative Instagram comments
“Sending out love to the moms shaming me for doing standup last night!" she captioned a picture of her pumping.
