2018 is going to be a massive year for Amy Schumer! 

She's expecting her first child with her husband Chris Fischer.

Schumer, 37, directed fans to former CNN White House correspondent Jessica Yellin’s Instagram page on Monday, October 22, to share her announcement.

“About to announce some exciting news on @jessicayellin insta page. Please follow her for up to the minute #newsnotnoise she breaks down what’s really going on,” the comedian captioned a Photoshopped pic of her and her husband as pregnant Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry. “She agreed to post a lil noise today for me! Follow her and VOTE!!”

Among stories about voting, a subtle slip was in there about Schumer!

On Yellin’s Instagram Story, she congratulated Schumer and shared “voting recommendations.” At the bottom, the note read, “I’m pregnant — Amy Schumer.”

The pregnancy news comes eight months after Us revealed that the couple tied the knot in Malibu. They had been dating for just a few months before the surprise February 13 ceremony, which was attended by celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence, Jennifer Aniston, David Spade, Judd Apatow and Larry David.
