Amy Schumer is showing off her baby bump…sorta.

The Life & Beth star was spotted March 8 on the set of her new movie Kinda Pregnant, sporting a baby bump as she mugged for the camera in Brooklyn, New York.

Wearing navy leggings and colorful sneakers, the 42-year-old's character was clearly dressed for comfort, finishing off her look with an oversized blue shirt and brown and blue plaid trench coat.

Kinda Pregnant stars Amy as Lainy, a woman who is jealous of her best friend's pregnancy and begins wearing a fake baby bump, only to accidentally meet the man of her dreams.

The Netflix film—which costars Damon Wayans Jr.Will Forte and Jillian Bell—has no release date as of yet.

Amy's fake pregnancy is likely easier than her actual pregnancy, as the Trainwreck star was open about her struggles with hyperemesis gravidarum while she was expecting 4-year-old son Gene, which caused severe nausea and vomiting.

At one point during her pregnancy, Amy—who also recently shared her struggles with Cushings Syndrome—was even hospitalized due to the illness, which caused her to cancel a stand up gig in Texas in November 2018.

"I am in the hospital," she wrote on Instagram at the time. "I'm fine. Baby's fine but everyone who says the 2nd trimester is better is not telling the full story. I've been even more ill this trimester. I have hyperemesis and it blows."

She added, "Very lucky to be pregnant but this is some bulls--t!"

And the comedian has continued to face challenges in her motherhood journey since she and husband Chris Fisher welcomed Gene in 2019. Most recently, Amy and the chef—who got married in 2018—reached a new parenting milestone when they got a sleep specialist to help Gene finally sleep through the night. As she wrote on Instagram March 7, "We got our nights back!"

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."
