Amy Schumer shares Mother's Day photo from the toilet and people are relating hard
Yesterday the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle celebrated Mother's Day by sharing an adorable photo of her six-day-old son Archie. "Paying tribute to all mothers today - past, present, mothers-to-be, and those lost but forever remembered," she wrote in the caption. "We honor and celebrate each and every one of you."
Not to be outdone, comedian Amy Schumer shared her own tribute to motherhood, which isn't glamorous, but is totally relatable. In the hilarious photo, Amy grimaces on the toilet in the hospital, while sister-in-law Molly Fischer cradles the baby. The caption? "Milf alert 1 o’clock."
The baby boy, Gene, is Amy's first child with husband Chris Fischer. After the birth, the Train Wreck star shared a moving takeaway from pregnancy on Instagram:
"Women are the sh*t. Men are cool and whatever but women are fucking warriors and capable of anything. I was lucky enough to get to have a doula... what she did was make me and Chris feel totally secure and supported throughout my pregnancy and the birth process. I really recommend getting one if you can... I did Pilates with strong women and went for walks. I threw up violently and felt sick mostly every day of my pregnancy...
"Hyperemesis is real and it’s awful. But f***, what they say is true. The second you give birth it’s gone... The only thing that helped me with my nausea was products from @thelordjones I learned that globally 1 in 5 births take place without the assistance of a skilled birth attendant. @everymomcounts is a great place to donate $250 equips a midwife with a bag of medical equipment needed to provide care to hundreds of women and babies in Guatemala."
During her pregnancy, Amy was remarkably open about the experience on social media. While Meghan Markle made public appearances looking absolutely gorgeous, Amy shared brutally honest photos and even a graphic video of herself puking. But hey, that's motherhood! Sometimes you're cradling your little miracle, and sometimes you're grimacing on the toilet.
