Actress and funny lady Amy Schumer gave birth to her first child, a boy late Sunday. Only hours before Prince Harry and his American wife Meghan Markle had their first child, also a boy early Monday morning. Schumer posted on social media, “10:55 pm last night our royal baby was born.” Schumer announced in October that she and her husband of 8 months were expecting their first child. Fischer an award winning cook book author and chef, said the birth of his son, “was amazing and tiring.”
About an hour before the baby arrived, Schumer was posting on social media pictures of her last year at the Met gala. She joked, “listen on the way to the Met a little thing happened at the hospital.” This pregnancy has not been easy for the 37 year old first time mom. She said she has battled extreme nausea, swollen feet. She said during a stand up routine in November, “I don’t like it, I’ve had a very tough pregnancy so far.” A month later, Schumer found herself hospitalized with a condition that plagued Kate Middleton, ‘hyperemesis gravidarum. The condition caused severe dehydration and can cause weight loss.
At the time of her hospitalization, she assured her fans that she was ok, but that she would have to cancel future comedy shows. She said at the time, “the last few days have been tough. I’m grateful as hell and know it’s temporary but tough just the same.” She posted pictures of herself in the hospital hooked up to an IV, “saying am I glowing?” She said she tried to keep a sense of humor about everything, ‘because without that you’re really in trouble.” In December Schumer posted a picture of herself throwing up blood, at the side of a road, saying, “this is Christmas.” By February, the actress was confined to bed rest due to increasing complications.
