Amy Schumer Pulls a Meghan Markle & Drops an Unexpected New Close-up Pic of Baby Gene
Remember when Meghan Markle basically broke the internet and shared a close-up Instagram photo of baby Archie in Prince Harry’s arms on Father’s Day? Well, Amy Schumer has been moving at the same pregnancy and parenting pace as the Duchess of Sussex and it looks like she’s not stopping any time soon.
Today, the 38-year-old comedian shared a new close-up photo of her 7-week-old son, Gene. Although she’s shared photos of the back of Gene’s head and a couple of pics of his face when he was first born, this is the first time Gene has been given the opportunity to ham it up for the cameras in such a way.
In the photo, he smiles with his little chubby cheeks and holds his hand under his chin like he’s posing.
“Here is our son Gene. He likes looking around and laughing at his toy the black and white butterfly,” Schumer captioned the photo.
Then, she pivoted to use Gene’s cuteness for a good cause, writing, “Always down for a nap and a good cry if the poops are on the reg he wanted me to tell you guys he wants you to volunteer or donate here @immfamtogether.”
Like us, Schumer’s followers melted at the sight of Gene and his baby-ness. Goldie Hawn wrote, “It’s just too much how beautiful his smile is. Little Buddha boy Bless you Gene. Gogo loves you already!!” (Goldie Hawn’s nickname when talking to infants is Gogo. Noted.)
Jennifer Garner got kind of New Agey and wrote, “Beauty. And. Contentment,” with a heart emoji. Glenn Close followed suit and commented, “He still has knowledge beyond our world.”
All we have to say, Gene, is keep up the adorable work.
