Amy Schumer’s latest Instagram snap is a feel-good moment to remember, as the new mother of son, Gene, continues to light up social media with adorable pics of her newborn and highlight both the struggles and delights of new motherhood.
In a striking new photo, both Schumer and her son looked directly into the camera. Gene was wearing an adorable onesie styled with horses, while the film star cradled him in her arms.
Fans couldn’t get enough of the adorable photo. Some stated it was the most precious picture they had ever seen, while others remarked that seeing Gene brought them great joy.
Schumer has used social media to highlight both her pregnancy and her first months as a mother, using the platform to showcase that both major life events had light and dark moments. The star’s most personal moments that have been played on Instagram have only drawn her closer to her fans, who have commended her for being so candid when the pressure is on to always look picture-perfect.
On July 16, Schumer received an Emmy nod for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special for her Netflix show, Growing. She thanked her co-star Gene, whom she shared the award nomination with.
In honor of the accolade, Schumer posted a cute pic of Gene drinking out of his baby bottle and raising his fist in the air. In the caption, she penned that she was proud of the Emmy nod, and thanked both her son and husband for their supportive roles in the project.
In her Netflix special, Schumer joked about her new marriage to husband, Chris Fischer, and expecting a baby. “I never wanted to be married ever,” the comedian revealed in an interview on Oprah Winfrey’s podcast Oprah’s SuperSoul Conversations, reported E! Entertainment Television. “I thought the concept of marriage was weird. Like, why do you want to involve the government in love? You know?”
It wasn’t until she hired her assistant’s brother, Chris, to cook for her family during a trip to Martha’s Vineyard, where he lived and worked as a chef, that she realized he was the one for her. Their friendship quickly turned to love, and they married in an impromptu ceremony in 2018 where the guests were invited via text, asking them to come and “watch [Schumer] become a wife.”
