Amy Schumer has announced she is pregnant with her first child.

The actress and comedian revealed she and her husband Chris Fischer are expecting with a post on Instagram.

Schumer, 37, shared an image of her and her husband’s heads edited onto the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who are also expecting.

In her social media post, Schumer directs fans to the page of journalist Jessica Yellin rather than revealing the news herself.

She wrote: “"About to announce some exciting news on @jessicayellin insta page.

“Please follow her for up to the minute £newsnotnoise she breaks down what's really going on.

"She agreed to post a lil noise today for me! Follow her and VOTE!!"

Schumer's friend Yellin, of the site NewsNotNoise.org, said in a video on her own Instagram page: "I wanted to share some news from our community, maybe it's noise but it's happy noise.

"So I'm not in the business of making voting recommendations, but these are the recommendations of Amy Schumer, one of the most consistent and earliest supporters of News Not Noise.

"Now read all the way to the bottom, you'll see there's some news down there. Congratulations, Amy."

She then shared a screen grab which included a note from Schumer saying "I'm pregnant" on a list of her candidate recommendations for voters for the upcoming midterm elections in the US.

Schumer married chef Fischer in February.
