“Sending out love to all the moms shaming me for doing standup last night,” the comedian wrote on Instagram in May 2019, two weeks after giving birth.
In August 2019, Schumer told an Instagram follower who asked how she’ll “cope” if her son has autism like his father, Chris Fischer: “I don’t see being on the spectrum as a negative thing. My husband is my favorite person I’ve ever met. He’s kind, hilarious, interesting and talented and I admire him. Am I supposed to hope my son isn’t like that? I will pay attention and try to provide him with the tools he needs to overcome whatever challenges come up like all parents. I’d be disappointed if he liked the Big Bang Theory and NASCAR, not if he has ASD.”Back to top
