Mums Are Cheering On Amy Schumer For Embracing Her ‘Soft Post-Baby Body’
Like the comedian that she is, Amy Schumer has found humour in the ups and downs of pregnancy—morning sickness, postpartum baby weight, hospital underwear, and all.
If you scroll through the 38-year-old’s Instagram, you’ll find multiple pics of the new mum unapologetically reminding the world that “women are the sh—” and “warriors” for going through all that comes with bringing a child into the world.
Schumer, who gave birth to her son Gene via c-section in May, shared a few photos of her family’s recent trip to the beach, and she looks absolutely amazing. In the first pic, Schumer is walking alongside her husband Chris Fischer while rocking a black one-piece swimsuit.
Fischer is holding onto Gene, who is protected with a sun hat, as Schumer smiles at the camera. Of course, the family’s dog Tati joined them at the beach, trailing behind mum and dad. “We’re good,” Schumer captioned the post. In their vacation photo, Fischer is pushing Schumer and their dog in a wheelchair as they trek through the sand.
Fans flooded the post with support and love. “So beautiful, a normal woman’s body you look great!!” one fan commented, to which Schumer responded, “I am loving my warm soft post baby body. Grateful to be feeling so strong again!”
Another fan told Schumer that she’s “swimsuit goals,”—and we’re totally here for it! But as she’s made clear in the past, Schumer is embracing her post-baby body in the realest way possible.
In a candid post of the star pumping breast milk, she called out trolls who had shamed her for performing at Comedy Cellar a few weeks out from giving birth. “Sending out love to the mums shaming me for doing standup last night!” she captioned the post from May.
Schumer also shared a few shots of her walking newborn Gene in her hospital underwear and bra. “5 weeks. Hospital underwear for life!” the caption read.
Of course, the post attracted another round of mum-shamers, which Schumer had no problem addressing. “I’m really sorry if I offended anyone with my hospital underwear. Except I’m just kidding,” she wrote in a follow-up post. Comments flooded in from moms offering support and thanking Schumer for her openness about the realities of pregnancy and life after giving birth.
“I’m trying to be happy as much as possible. Aren’t you!” Schumer shared in an Instagram post from last week, as she relaxed in the ocean with her husband and dog, so it looks like we can expect more relatable mom content from Schumer as she updates us on her postpartum experience.
