Amy Schumer and husband Chris Fischer are seen for the first time in public since welcoming son Gene
Amy Schumer enjoyed a sunshine stroll with her husband a week after giving birth to their first child.
The 37-year-old and Chris Fischer, who welcomed son Gene on May 5, were spotted out in New York on Wednesday.
Amy announced the birth of her child last Monday with a nod to Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s first child Archie by referring to her son as ‘our royal baby’.

Baby joy: The couple welcomed son Gene on May 5 and shared the news with fans the following day
The Snatched star – who announced her pregnancy in October, around the same time as The Duke and Duchess of Sussex – found her pregnancy ‘tough’ as she struggled with hyperemesis gravidarum, a form of extreme morning sickness, and documented the ups and downs on her Instagram page.
Amy was hospitalised for the condition and was forced to postpone some of her stand-up shows in November.
She has since revealed that she was immediately relieved of the symptoms following the birth of her child.
No more morning sickness! Amy endured hyperemesis gravidarum throughout her entire pregnancy and was relieved when the symptoms immediately subsided following the birth
Amy recently took to social media to reflect on her pregnancy and thank her doula Domino Kirke.
A doula is a non-medical companion who supports a birthing woman by providing continuous care before, during, or after childbirth.
In a lengthy Instagram post, the ‘Trainwreck’ star wrote: Ok here’s my post baby annoying post and my takeaway from pregnancy. Women are the s**t. Men are cool and whatever but women are f***ing warriors and capable of anything. I was lucky enough to get to have a doula.
‘She [made] me and Chris feel totally secure and supported throughout my pregnancy and the birth process. I really recommend getting one if you can.’

Amy also thanked her doctor and the medical staff at the hospital where she gave birth for ‘everything’ they did to help her through the process, and spoke about her battle with Hyperemesis.
She continued: ‘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 f**k, 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 (sic)’
She closed off her post by thanking her friends for their support, as well as giving a shoutout to her husband and their newborn son.
She wrote: ‘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 #t*tsleaking #wearingadiaper (sic)’
