Amy Schumer finally gave birth on Sunday, May 5. But that doesn’t mean the she is done giving fans a hilariously real look into her life.
On Mother’s Day Schumer celebrated the glamour that comes with being just a few days postpartum with a photo on Instagram where she’s on the hospital toilet while another woman cradles her new baby boy, in the foreground. The caption: “MILF alert 1 o’clock”.
In the photo, the comedian is attached to a number of wires and an IV on a pole just inches away, staring at the camera with a cranky look that’s begging for you to keep your distance.
Schumer’s new Netflix special Growing was filmed while she was pregnant, and title is resonant in the expected ways: She is physically growing; she hopes she is also personally growing. She talks about how hard her pregnancy has been, her recent marriage, and her decision to get arrested while protesting Brett Kavanaugh. At one point early in the hour, she is literally revealing: She lifts the veil on pregnancy experiences by lifting up her dress to show off the two Band-Aids she has taped over her belly button so that the dress’s fabric will lay flat.
