The actress announced their new addition on her Instagram page, with a hospital photo and a caption reading, "10.55 pm last night. Our royal baby was born."

The caption is seemingly referring to Prince Harry and Meghan, who also welcomed their first child — also a boy — hours later.

Schumer initially broke her baby news yesterday on the Instagram stories of friend and journalist Jessica Yellin. Yellin, of the site NewsNotNoise.org, showed at the end of a list of Schumer's recommended congressional and gubernatorial candidates the line: "I'm pregnant-Amy Schumer."

The 37-year-old made her film debut in the 2015 Trainwreck. She starred this year in the movie I Feel Pretty. Schumer married Fischer, a chef, in February 2018.
