Schumer was a remote guest star on the “What To Expect” podcast where she shared her fears about being a mother for the second time. Murkoff started the show off by congratulating the actress on her first child, a son named Gene.

Schumer, 39, thanked her and revealed how the boy had just turned 14-months-old and was no longer a baby. The star shared how the boy had started walking when he was just 10-months.

GENE’S GROWTH

The actress joked about how the little boy could now “walk out the door and get his own apartment.” The toddler was also learning to speak and could say “a couple” of words, according to his mother.

Even though she already has a child, Schumer revealed that it wasn’t something she had in mind. She also shared how she never thought about getting married either.

AMY’S PREGNANCY ILLNESSES

The star is married to Chris Fischer, and tying the knot with him is what led her to want a child. When the comedienne was pregnant with Gene, she struggled with hyperemesis gravidarum which is extreme morning sickness.

The ailment stayed with the actress until the day she gave birth to her son. Schumer also explained that she had “really bad endometriosis and adenomyosis” too.

WHAT IS ENDOMETRIOSIS

Endometriosis is a painful condition that develops when the tissue that lines the uterus grows outside of it. Adenomyosis is when the uterus thickens and occurs when endometrial tissues move into the walls of the uterus.

CAN’T GET PHYSICALLY PREGNANT

The star noted how: “I could have a baby again, physically, but it might kill me.” Despite the tough journey, she went through to carry her son to term, the actress still felt it was all worth it.
