"Our Royal Baby Was Born": Amy Schumer And Husband Chris Welcome Their Baby Hours Before The Sussexes

In an uncanny coincidence, actress and comedian Amy Schumer and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, announced their pregnancies around the same time last year.

Naturally, Amy took it as an opportunity to make jokes and witty observations comparing her condition with Meghan’s. She once joked that she would specifically time her labor to give birth at the same time with the Duchess.

What makes it all the more funny, that's almost exactly how it actually happened!

Amy and husband Chris welcome their “own royal baby”

As it turns out, Amy beat Meghan to it! The comedian has announced the happy news on Instagram with a sweet picture of the newborn sleeping peacefully in her arms and her husband Chris Fischer gently kissing her on the temple.

The new mom wrote in the caption:

10:55 pm last night. Our royal baby was born.

Meghan went into labor hours later, and Prince Harry announced the long-awaited arrival of their baby boy on the very same day!

That’s amusing, isn’t it?

Fans’ reactions

Amy’s fans, especially those who watched her recent Netflix special, found the coincidence both comic and cute! Here are some of their comments:

Congratulations, Amy and Chris! May your days as a family be filled with laughter.
