Amy Schumer’s pregnancy is no joke. The 37-year-old comedian, who is battling extreme morning sickness in her second trimester, cancelled three upcoming tour dates on Monday, November 19. Schumer included a photo of her bare baby bump in her Instagram announcement.
“I’m so happy to be feeling better and I will be able to continue my tour,” the I Feel Pretty actress wrote. “However doctors orders not to travel cross country yet so I’m sorry that Seattle, Phoenix and Oakland will need to be postponed. I promise to go see you guys and make up the date real soon. The rest of the tour will go on as planned! Happy Thanksgiving!”
Schumer pulled out of performances in Texas on November 15, after she was hospitalized with hyperemesis gravidarum, a rare pregnancy complication characterized by persistent nausea. It is the same condition that plagued Duchess Kate’s three pregnancies. Dr. Sherry Ross, an Ob-Gyn based in Santa Monica, previously told Us Weekly that vomiting can be so severe that intravenous hydration and nutrition are needed.
“I have hyperemesis and it blows,” the Trainwreck star shared on November 15. “Very lucky to be pregnant but this is some bulls—t!”
Schumer announced in October that she is expecting her first child with husband Chris Fischer. The comedian and chef, 38, tied the knot in a surprise ceremony in February after just a few months of dating — but Schumer has explained they were friends for more than a year before the relationship turned romantic.
“I married a chef because I’m a f—king genius,” the mom-to-be declared during her show A Night With Amy Schumer in October. Schumer then gushed that if she’s craving penne all vodka, The Beetlebung Farm Cookbook author heads to the kitchen!
