And just like that, Amy Schumer's son is 1. 

It feels like just yesterday the famous funny lady was taking us along the ride of her pregnancy, often hilariously drawing comparison to Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle as they were expecting at the same time. In fact, Schumer ended up giving birth to her and husband Chris Fischer's first child, Gene, just hours before Archie Harrison's arrival

"10:55 pm last night," the comedian announced on Instagram on May 6, 2019 before her perfect punchline. "Our royal baby was born."

Now, 12 months later, the star and first-time mom has commemorated her son's 1st birthday in a simply sweet way.

"I'm really glad it was you," she captioned a photo of them napping together. "Hbd."

While the youngster has certainly grown over the last year, that's not the only thing that's different about him these days. Last month, Schumer revealed they had also changed his middle name—but you probably would not have guessed why.

"So do you guys know that Gene, our baby's name is officially changed?" she asked her listeners in an episode of her podcast, Amy Schumer Presents: 3 Girls, 1 Keith. "It's now Gene David Fischer. It was Gene Attell Fischer but we realized that we by accident named our son, 'genital.'"

The minor mishap aside, Schumer has seemingly enjoyed her latest role. "The hype is real. Believe the hype," she told E! News of motherhood six months after he was born. "I'm so lucky."

Getting Real

"Being his mom is heaven on earth and also means a constant feeling of guilt and vulnerability I will never get used to," the star wrote on Instagram in February 2022. "Your heart feels like it's outside your body and you're too old to drink the feelings away like you used to. When you were in love and scared. Send help!!!"

Keeping It Real on Mother's Day

Schumer shows the not-so-glamourous part of giving birth (difficulty going to the toilet, for one) as everyone coos over her newborn in the hospital, in this photo posted on Mother's Day 2019. Many moms, including celebs such as Jenna Fischer and Snooki, praised the star for keeping it real.

All Worth It

"Ok here's my post baby annoying post and my takeaway from pregnancy," Schumer wrote alongside this photo. "Women are the s--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."

"I did Pilates with strong women and went for walks," she said. "I threw up violently and felt sick mostly every day of my pregnancy. Hyperemesis is real and it's awful. But fuck, what they say is true. The second you give birth it's gone...All my friends. Friends I've had for 30 years or people who encouraged me to "keep going" or telling me "it will be worth it". Thank you. Every woman I encountered is so willing to help and advise you and I felt all their strength. And you were right. Thank you ladies from my family. Chris, Gene and of course Tatiana #titsleaking #wearingadiaper."
