Amy Schumer has hailed her three-year-old son as a “supreme athlete”.
The 41-year-old comedian is mother to Gene with her husband Chris Fischer and explained that the little one “talks too much” and “loves to exercise”.
She said, “I can’t. I can’t handle it. He’s too cute. He’s too cute and he talks a lot. And he’s a supreme athlete, just [for] any recruiter. People say, ‘Who works? Where do you get it from? I say ‘What do you mean?’ “
Meanwhile, the ‘Life and Beth’ actress is back on screens with her sketch comedy ‘Inside Amy Schumer’ and can’t believe it’s been six years since she last left the Comedy Central show.
She told Entertainment Tonight: “Has it really been six years? Oh my God. I only want to say something if I feel like it might actually be fun and helpful. I really felt pretty hopeless for the last couple, six years. You know what I want say? With all the different elections. And now there’s a lot to talk about.”
However, Amy added that these days she doesn’t believe in joking about “harmful stereotypes” and doesn’t want comedy to go back to a time when it was.
She added: “No one wants to feel like they’re learning anything, so you try to do it for a laugh, and then you’re like, ‘Oh, that makes sense.’ It’s not fun to joke about harmful stereotypes and such. of things, which I used to think were funny. Anyone who complains about how they want things to go back to the way they were is a problem.”
Meanwhile, shortly after Amy and her husband Chris Fischer welcomed Gene into the world in May 2019, she told fans that she had felt very “lucky” to have Domino by her side throughout her pregnancy.
She then wrote on Instagram: “Ok, here’s my annoying baby post and my pregnancy explanation. Women are the shit.
“Men are cool and whatever but women are badass warriors and capable of anything. I was lucky enough to have a doula. Her name @domino_kirke @carriagehousebirth,
“What do doulas do? I don’t totally know, but what she did do was make me and Chris feel totally safe and supported throughout my pregnancy and birth process. I highly recommend getting one if you can.(sic)”
