7 Honest Postpartum Moments That Prove Amy Schumer Is the F*cking Realest
Even before her pregnancy with her first child, Gene, Amy Schumer never shied away from being her true self and sharing her beliefs with her social media followers. But since becoming a mom, the comedian has become a postpartum queen who sports mesh underwear and her breast pump in every other Instagram photo. Can we get a round of applause?
Check out Amy's most honest postpartum moments since giving birth to Gene on May 5, all of which prove she's the f*cking realest.
When she took Gene for a walk in her mesh underwear — then napped in them, too.
Amy shared the above Instagram gallery at five weeks postpartum, and wrote: "5 weeks. Hospital underwear for life!" The honest, mesh underwear-filled photo gallery caught the attention of Kristen Bell, who responded, "YESSSSS."
When she shared a photo of herself pumping in full gear.
Amy captioned this hilariously deadpan shot, "Guys what are we doing tonight?"
When she photobombed her newborn from the hospital toilet.
Amy shared this photo of herself on the toilet — hospital socks and all — nearly 10 days after giving birth with the caption, "Milf alert 1 o'clock."
When she flashed her C-section scar and mesh underwear on a NYC street.
The comedian truly doesn't give a f*ck where she is — she's going to keep flashing those mesh undies. This hilarious Instagram gallery was captioned: "I'm really sorry if I offended anyone with my hospital underwear. Except I'm just kidding." Yes, mama!
When she confronted those who shamed her for going back to work two weeks after birth.
"Sending out love to the moms shaming me for doing standup last night!" Amy captioned this photo. With her mesh underwear and pumping bra in full force, Amy made it clear that she really doesn't care what anyone thinks, especially those who chastised her for performing standup two weeks after giving birth.
When she dedicated her first Mother's Day post to women, because "women are f*cking warriors."
Just a week after giving birth, Amy celebrated her first Mother's Day and took the opportunity to highlight and support women and the incredible things they're capable of — namely, going through pregnancy and giving birth. "Women are the sh*t. Men are cool and whatever but women are f*cking warriors and capable of anything," she wrote.
When she spent her birthday in bed with baby Gene.
Amy spent her first birthday as a mom in bed with her boy. The comedian shared this adorable photo of her and Gene snuggling while she was having a bite to eat in bed — because we all know you have to get as much done as possible while baby sleeps, but it's oh so typical to want to be near them as they do (even if you were begging them to sleep just minutes before).
