Amy Schumer Welcomes ‘Royal Baby’ on the Same Day Meghan Markle Gave Birth and Fans Are Speechless
While everyone’s attention was practically fixated on the baby of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, you probably didn’t have any clue that another royal baby was born on May 6. While most of us are guilty that we were just itching to get a glimpse of Baby Sussex on that day, a new mom in the person of Amy Schumer went out of her way to announce that, FYI, she also delivered her “royal baby.”
For fans of the “I Feel Pretty” star, you would know that she has been riding the royal popularity since the Kensington Palace announced that Meghan and Prince Harry were expecting their first baby in October.
When Amy got wind that the former “Suits” actress has a bun in the oven, too, she made it a point to make it a competition and one time, she even jokingly referred to the Duchess her “nemesis.” The playful race was on, at least for the comedian, since Meghan probably had no idea that there was such a thing.
In October, Amy also made her own “creative” baby announcement. She took a photo of Meghan and Prince Harry and photoshopped her and husband Chris Fischer’s face over the royals’, a hilarious spoof that was expected of her. Funny enough, the comedian even joked about the coincidence in her Netflix special “Growing,” where she said she and the Duchess of Sussex might be the same amount of pregnant, an experience she described as “not fun.”
Differences and Similarities
Amy quipped that Meghan was wearing 6-inch heels with matching fashionable outfits and jested that the royal just “cups” where the bundle of joy “should be,” while her experience was nothing like that – people think she’s already in the crowning stage. And what are the odds that they gave birth on the same day, right?
The 37-year-old “Trainwreck” star took the initiative to announce that she gave birth at 10:55 p.m. of May 6 by uploading a post-partum selfie as she cradled her child and as Chris gave her a kiss on the cheek just as everyone was busy talking about the royal baby. Interestingly, Amy also had a boy, just like Meghan!
Kidding aside, Amy’s second pregnancy was rained by hyperemesis gravidarum, a condition in which a pregnant woman suffers from severe nausea and vomiting. It could be dangerous, especially if a person throws up too much that would result in weight loss or dehydration. In fact, she had to be rushed to the hospital at one point in her journey and was the reason for delaying her comedy tour.
It turns out Amy doesn’t only share similarities with Meghan, as the morning sickness she had was the same as Kate Middleton’s, who was revealed to have gone through the same experience throughout her pregnancies with her three children. Because of hyperemesis gravidarum, the Duchess of Cambridge had to cancel some of her royal engagements when she was pregnant with Prince Louis in 2017.
