Amy Schumer shares a rare photo of herself and her 2-year-old son, Gene, and admits that she sometimes feels «vulnerable» as a parent.
Amy Schumer described being a mother as «paradise on earth» after posting a cute photo of her son Gene smiling next to her while riding a toy bike on Instagram.
Amy Schumer, 40, is sharing a glimpse of her life as a mother with her fans, admitting that parenting has its ups and downs.
The actress shared a selfie of herself and her two-year-old son Gene posing on a floor next to blue cabinets. In the photo, she’s smiling and sitting alongside him on a red toy bike, wearing a black and white tie-dye costume, and her mini-me is sitting by her on a red toy bike, wearing a black and white tie-dye outfit.
«Being his mother is a dream come true, but it also comes with a continual sense of shame and vulnerability that I’ll never get accustomed to. Your heart feels as if it’s outside your body, and you’re too old to drink away your emotions the way you used to. When you were afraid and in love. Amy captioned the photo, «Send assistance!!!»
Her supporters then turned to the comment area to express their feelings, many of which were pleasant. «Yep, vulnerable in ways I’ve never felt before,» one fan concurred, while others expressed similar parental thoughts.
Another fan added, «Wow, so nicely expressed,» while another called Gene «a godsend.» Many more just used red heart emojis to express their admiration for Amy’s photograph and statement.
Amy and her husband Chris Fischer welcomed Gene in 2019, a year after they married. She’s been quite open about her family and her issues with her body after giving birth since then. On Jan. 18, she posted images of herself standing on the beach in a one-piece bikini and revealed that she had undergone endometriosis, liposuction, and acupuncture, all of which had a significant positive impact on her health.
«I’m in good spirits.» Finally. It’s been a long road, and I appreciate your assistance in regaining my strength. @seckinmd (endo) @jordanternermd (lipo) I never expected to do anything other than chat to you when your uterus hasn’t contracted in 2.5 years and you’ve turned 40. @paulvincent22 Vickie My girl Nicole from the tox, Lee (acupuncture), and my friends and family. «Let’s go!» she captioned the photo.
