Cape Town – Amy Schumer and her husband Chris Fischer have welcomed their first child together.

Hours after it was announced that UK royals, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed a baby boy on Tuesday, the stand-up comedian and actress announced the birth of her son alongside a photo of the new family-of-three.

"10:55 pm last night. Our royal baby was born," Amy captioned the snap.


Cracking jokes ahead of the birth, Amy shared snaps of her 2019 Met Gala appearance.
