Gene David Fischer
Amy Schumer's first child, a son named Gene, was born on May 5, 2019. The comedian shared a photo of her new family of three to announced his birth, writing: "10:55 pm last night. Our royal baby was born."
Although Gene was given the middle name Attell at birth, Amy and Chris opted to change it before his first birthday for a pretty hilarious reason. "So do you guys know that Gene, our baby's name is officially changed? It's now Gene David Fischer. It was Gene Attell Fischer, but we realized that we by accident named our son 'genital,'" Amy said an episode her Spotify podcast, Amy Schumer Presents: 3 Girls, 1 Keith, bluntly adding, "Gene Attell sounds like 'genital.'"
Since welcoming Gene, we've watched Amy grow into her role as a transparent mama, but also have seen Gene go from an adorable newborn to an even cuter infant and now toddler — he's so smiley and delicious! We can't wait to see him continue to grow over the years.
